It’s funny how Ron Weasley’s routine changes in the summer. He spends more time outdoors. Practically all his time. And as the Oregon weather slowly heats up, one of his favorite spots is in this, the coolest corner of the yard, beneath a willow. He’s taken over this mini park bench that the kids have outgrown and frankly, it’s been out in the elements for so long I am sure it wouldn’t hold more than Ron’s puny nine pounds.
Ron’s bench is in the overgrown part of the yard that marks the graves of the two long-time cats we lost last summer. I wonder if he sits there so he can talk to them.
