My Reading Companion

Many mornings I read on the front porch for a few minutes — if it isn’t too humid, that is.

I like reading on the front porch because it’s peaceful; no cats or dogs to dodge. But it isn’t quiet because it overlooks the chickens and with eight roosters, it’s never quiet. They have so many agendas.

I was minding my own business reading a bit when I heard the window screen make a noise.
Wait a minute! Window screens don’t make noises. I turned around and noticed my companion. Hummm … I’ve never seen her on the porch before. She’s usually in the chicken house raiding a nest.

I decided that I’d read enough for this morning. So I put my book down,  got my camera out, and watched my companion for a several minutes. She was so beautiful.

At first I swiveled around in my chair. Then when I saw my companion, I quietly moved my chair away from the window so I could get a better look at this beautiful lady. As always, we welcome black snakes out here.

She was so graceful moving back and forth between the cat tree and the window screen.

I’m amazed at how she can hang on a brick wall while moving so gracefully.

After several minutes, I decided it was best to leave her alone so she could go about her business.

One thought on “My Reading Companion

  1. I was expecting something soft and cuddly. “Little lady!”
    I’d’ve been done reading. Probably done doing anything but quivering in a corner. lol
    God bless you for loving all God’s creatures.
