So you think rainy days leave you feel damp and down in the dumps.  Poor Mlle Renee is suffering from severe sunlight withdrawal. After two sun-filled days that she spent cavorting out in the backyard, she has spent a Sunday and now a Monday out on the sun porch watching the falling rain. Renee does not like rain. And to make matters worse the temps are dropping and the weather mavens are predicting snow this evening. SHUDDERS!!!  What’s a poor dog to do? Other than go in and take a nap on Rob’s bed when the heat is turned on.


By any other name it would be the dung beetle. But the ancient Egyptians were fond enough of it to make it a deity.Scarab2


And today it was today’s origami project.DSC09639

Actually, that’s the second time I folded it today. The first time I did as the directions suggested and used gold foil paper. Unfortunately, lighting reflections in the foil make it almost impossible to photograph. So I went back and used plan colored folding paper a second time.DSC09651Notice that I didn’t show the beetle partaking in its favorite pastime rolling dung balls.

Now, if it will only stop raining long enough for me to go out and bring the trash cart back into the yard.

  1. Thank you for excluding the dung balls. I hope Renee is getting more sunshine than rain these days.
