Today is Flub Day. Not officially, though our Mom thinks there ought to be a Flub Day. No, today our Mom was going to post an Around Colehaus post but… it’s still raining here. No flowers are blooming, no buds are um, budding, the squirrels are wearing lifejackets, and the visiting raccoons come sporting snorkels.
Then she had the bright idea of posting an update on Sunny, you know, since it’s been a while. And Sunny said, “No, I’m good,” and promptly went back to napping to the soothing sound of rain.
Mom thought about posting about Quint and his painting but again, all our rain hasn’t exactly made Quint want to paint. In fact, he’s been a bit grumpy about the lack of spring window whiffs and is convinced no one wants to see what he sees outside – streaks and smears of cold, grey rain. Can you blame him?
“How about some pretty photos, Miss Newton? Your green eyes look so pretty in this light,” Mom asked since Miss Newton was sitting nearby but Miss Newton sighed and thought out loud, “My eyes reflect the growing population of all the moss and algae living outside. Will it ever stop raining?” Soon, our Mom reassures us. The rain will stop sometime, someday, soon.
We thought maybe Mom would give un update on Tessa MacTroublesome and as soon as Mom pointed her camera, Tessa took a flying leap to go elsewhere. We can’t blame her. She did get into trouble again, just once, when she ripped up the tablecloth draped over the booof-fay where even The Squirt knows we aren’t allowed.
And then, the Squirt hid behind a curtain and sulked and our Mom called that every bit as cute as the nickname Squirt.
So, you see, today didn’t go anywhere near the way we thought it would, or should. It’s a Flub Day. We hope your Friday isn’t a Flub Day, but if it is, please join us in requesting a Do Over Day ’cause we need one!
