The Last Backporch Breakfast

School starts on Thursday.  Teachers are busy doing in-service meetings.  Kids are enjoying the last few days of freedom before the school bell rings.

Saturday, I decided to enjoy one of my last days of leisurely having breakfast on the back porch.  I love hearing the splash of water in the pond, watching the birds fight it out over the bird feeder and watching hummingbird wars going on above my head for the nectar.  It's so relaxing.  I read my devotional, play a game of solitaire or two, catch up on Facebook.

Patch the cat usually gives up her snobbish ways comes and sits with me.  I sometimes let her lick the yogurt out of my muesli bowl when I'm finished.  Yes, as a matter of fact, I am bribing her to be my friend.

Usually I put everything on a tray and carry it all out at once.  Here's why:

(cue sounds of birds singing, water splashing and footsteps in the house)
Hmmm.  Wonder if the human meant me to have all the cereal this morning?
Where's the coffee???

I love it when pets get the idea that they're human. And it makes for lovely photos.
