One-Liner Wednesday – Routine

Maddie likes her routine. When I travel, my part of her routine is disrupted, and she lets me know that I have to get back in the groove as soon as I return. That includes our weekend walks, even if it’s foggy with a chance of drizzle. We might be able to skip a crummy day, if we have had normal weekends for weeks on end, but after I’ve been gone for an entire weekend, she goes to where her harness and leash are hanging, and:

Yo – it’s time for our walk!

More and more often, we seem to be interrupting the early morning activity of the critters in the neighborhood as they get ready for winter.

Today’s gallery includes some local wildlife, photographed as we walked, both days!

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. You can follow this link to see the one-liners from the other participants.


  1. I’m liking the pole covered in feathery things :)
    It’s funny how some poles seem to attract them while others don’t. There’s one particular intersection I pass where the lines are guaranteed to be covered in birds unlike any other.

    • It looks like Jose is going to hang a right. Maddie is affected by the weather. She doesn’t mind being out in normal rain, and she loves the snow, but thunderstorms and times when the air pressure is out of whack, she gets scared, clingy, needs her ThunderShirt.

    • Thanks Judy. She gets mad when I travel. She sees my suitcase and she snubs me :(

      We try to care for her as best we can. She can be a handful.

      I was surprised to see so many leave on the ground as we walked.


  2. Great photos :) They do tell us things, and Walkies! is a big one.
    Squirrels take refuge in our apple trees, too, poor dears. Sometimes I have to practically drag Sadie away, because I think she’d hang out under the trees bein happily squawked at all day!

  3. We had September in August, so we’re having August in September. Gorgeous fall weather last month; stinky hot and humid this month. Bleh. I like my fall colors and my fall crispness AT THE SAME TIME, THANK YOU.
