Mom Loves Me Best


This afternoon on the way to the mailbox Elvira was waiting for me - YIPPY!!!  So this gal sat herself down on the ground and just LOVED on this sweet one... She was very willing to be a snuggle gal.  Heck I even got head bumps and licks on my nose - this just made me the happiest gal on the planet.  I know for most this is no big deal but for me IT IS EVERYTHING.

After about a half hour of loving on each other I told her I would get the mail and be back quickly.  She wanted to follow but a stearn "STAY" had her butt on the ground and tail going back and forth with a bit of nasty looks but again I reminded her the school bus is due and we don't want FLAT KITTY...

As I walked up the long driveway out from the tall grass she sprang and ran in front of me.  Then she ran back into the bushes and as I walked by she jumped out again.  This game went on until we got back to the flat ground out of the eyesight of the dog and where we could have more snuggle time together.

As I sat down and got our loving on - out from behind the young pines came the sweet little doe.. She slowly walked towards me and was glad I think to see me.  As I was petting Elvira the doe crept up step by step until she was no more then 6 feet away from me.  She gave such a soft sweet look to me and I spoke softly to her.  I spoke to her about how wonderful it was to see her nose is almost healed and that she has been enjoying her time with the sheep in the barn.  Yes, I told her I saw her this morning in the barn drinking some water and nibbling on the goodies I had put out for them all...  She put her head down as if the say "Oh You Saw That"...

The clouds where dancing over our heads as a gentle breeze started up.  All of a sudden Elvira like a little toddler realized that I was looking at the doe a bit too long for her taste. Elvira jumped out of my lap and hissed while running full force at the sweet little deer.   Her Tail was like a bottle brush and the purring that filled the air just seconds ago was replaced with screaming hisses...  Her pure white tail stood straight up in the air and she sprang off in a blink of an eye.  Elvira came walking back to my lap with a smile on her face and crawled back on my lap PURRING Loudly...  Typical of toddlers no matter what species they are - made my day to feel I was the object of affection of two living creators.  Yep, this is a check in the win box for me today.....

What was your BEST part of the day????

Best part of my day, is when I clock out of the hell hole.
The best part is when I get home, sheep, dogs, cats are all happy to see me ... errrr maybe it's the food they are happy to see.
