a monochromic observance


dark, light and greys

what a mysterious view

a vast history unknown


such an enticing enigma



as a true testament of time…

Weekly Pet Challenge – falling asleep


the evolution of a snooze



what is that? i hear something…i smell something…there is something over yonder…


think i will lie back

a few seconds later – “i think i will slip into my lounge position…”


feeling snoozy

this is Pee’s “lounge position”.



“wake me up when it is time to go….”


Last week was a very busy week for Sydnee Pee.  Driving here and there and everywhere.  There was soccer camp, jobs, ACT prep… it was exhausting.  Pee did manage to fit in a few snoozes along the way.  On Thursday we had some time between ACT prep and soccer, so we swung over to the Half Day Forest Preserve for a timeout and lunch.  As one can see above, Pee enjoyed the fresh air, cool breeze and the shade.
