I knew that it felt cold here this morning but I was surprised to discover that it was 47 degrees outdoors, –when I finally checked the temperature. It’s been rainy for three days now. I think our weather is in sympathy with the weather in Florida where it has been stormy with a lot of rain this week.
When I opened the door to the driveway, there was Enigma, looking longingly at me. When I opened the door to the porch, to get my morning newspaper, there was Enigma, not only looking longingly at the house, but she acted on that longing. Quickly she slipped past me and into the house and streaked upstairs to her place under the sewing machine. I didn’t pursue her. I knew I could easily get her when I thought she’d been indoors long enough.
A little later, there she was sitting on my chair at the table, her paws comfortably tucked underneath her. I went about getting my breakfast and she was watching me. I wasn’t talking to her, and she wasn’t talking to me, but suddenly, quietly, there was Koco, the Boxer, standing nose to nose with Enigma. They were just getting acquainted. Enigma isn’t afraid of Koco, and Koco isn’t aggressive with Enigma. I like that they get along with each other so well.
After a short while, Enigma went to the kitchen door and I assumed that she wanted to go outside again. I opened the door and she went into the entryway, and from there, outside again. She didn’t feel she needed to stay indoors for long this morning. I am getting used to have her come indoors for a short visit. She’ll surely be indoors again this winter when the weather becomes uncomfortably cold for her.
