“Lazy dog” has been a term used to describe someone who does not pull their weight, someone that is not productive, or not doing the task they are responsible for. I have often yelled at Catfish or Jon Boy, “get out of bed ya lazy dog, there’s work to be done”. This was usually followed by lots grumbling and complaining. I have used this term to negatively describe people around me for years.
But when faced with an actual example at the 40 acre woods, I may need to re-think the “lazy dog” description.
Anna seems to embrace the concept of “lazy dog” while enjoying a sunny spot under the oak tree. Kind of like getting a cool glass of iced tea on a hot day, a well deserved break.
I think I may ponder this new way of thinking while swinging in my hammock.
