Today I woke up and did something I often see my father doing; I grabbed a yogurt from the fridge, and proceeded to eat it while standing in front of the window in our kitchen that overlooks our front yard.  For my dad, I think it’s a matter of standing while eating (something he’s become accustomed to from having to eat quickly at work), and watching his hummingbird friends zip around and drink from the feeder.  In my case, I was observing my sister poke and prod our cat Ed (who is a SHE!) with the tip of her foot.  Naturally, the cat was annoyed and an epic battle of claw and shoe proceeded to ensue.

This is how I ended up with my camera, outside, having a mini-shoot of Ed a few minutes later.

I’ve always enjoyed watching Ed while she’s outside exploring the world.  She hunts leaves, prowls around in the day lilies, takes a nap in the shade underneath the cars in the garage, stares intently at birds, and rolls around on the cement.  I don’t know what it is that makes her enjoy rolling around on the dirty driveway SO MUCH, but she loves it like it’s catnip.

Here are a few of my favorites of Edward enjoying the outdoors.  Enjoy!

(I like this photo mainly because she looks like a happy old man.  n_n)

(I don’t think you can see it, but she has a beetle under her paws.)
