“Are weeeeeee???” Thalia started looking for her sleeping bag. “Are we — Are we going camping?!”
Nią scowled and tightened her sweater around her shoulders. “No.”
“Neighbor Dan is though… planning a big trip out west with the Boy Scouts…” Calliope felt grateful for art-full additions… She found a rogue piece of Christmas wreath and stray bark in the garage. “Yesterday he told us the troop is planning to ‘camp above the tree line’… said there’s nothing like seeing the unobstructed landscape… under an immense sky… from the top of a mountain.”
I do so love my early morning patrol with Henrietta.
When we cross paths with neighbors Dan, John, and Tony — along with their fourlegs — Riley, Gracie, and Addie, our day is brighter… despite January’s darkness.
