Today, even though it should be MOM's day off, she needed to go into work. But really that's OK with me because I got to go with her. Of course the first thing she does is walk around the church property with me. That means 10 acres of brush, trees, a ditch, hills, and all sort of places to explore.
Then we headed back inside cuz MOM had to prepare the church for a funeral the next day. A sad thing really. This woman's death was completely unexpected and took everyone off guard. But MOM said while it is sad the funeral will be a celebration of her life.

Then Robin came to the church. I love Robin. She is one of the biggest dog lovers I know and she loves cats too (her only flaw. Just kidding, hehhe). She had some stuff to do for the funeral too and she knew I would be there so she brought me a present.
Yep a yummie bone.
I took it into the nursery to enjoy it. I always find little yummie crumbs in that room. I think the little ones leave them there just for me to find after they leave on Sunday.
After I finished my bone I asked if I could go outside and MOM being the MOM she is said sure. Now I can go out by myself but I like it better if MOM walks with me.
One of the things I like to do is find voles.
Come on MOM stop with the camera and let's see who can run back to the church the fastest. Hehehhehe. It's no contest, I win every time.
Back inside I helped MOM iron the banners that hang in the sanctuary. Because it is Lent MOM needed to take down the other banners and put up the Lent ones.
Bert DO NOT look at the yellow fuzzy round thing in front of me. Don't look. I promise I did not play with this tennis ball while MOM ironed the banner. Promise.
I am such a good helper. I make sure the banner doesn't go any where.
Then MOM hung up the banner and took a step back to see if it looked OK. I thought it would look better if I sat in front of it. I think I am right and MOM agreed.
Then MOM did all sort of other things and I thought I'd give her a break and let her get her stuff done. So I took a nap in front of the altar.
Then it was time to go outside one more time before we headed home. It was a good day, even though MOM was working and considering the reason she was working on her day off.
