June 23 – 1: Purple blankets

A couple of years ago, friends of ours gave out the best wedding favors ever at their chilly outdoor evening wedding: fuzzy purple fleece blankets. We love them and they are now our favorite throw blankets. But not as much as Daisy. She seriously adores this blanket – I think she likes it more than food, even. So she’ll put up with just about anything when she’s lying on it – even being wrapped up in it, which she won’t put up with if we use any other blanket/coat/dog sweater/really anything else.

Oh, hi.

I seem to be wrapped up in this blanket.

It’s okay, though, I’m kind of tired anyway. And this blanket is pretty soft and comfortable.

I think I’ll just take a nap.



May 28 – 3: Daisy

J and I traveled to Providence and Boston over Memorial Day Weekend, and we had a great trip. But today, I’m glad to be home – especially because I picked up our adorable and very happy puppy from the kennel this afternoon.

She may drive us crazy sometimes, but there is nothing like the unconditional love you get from a dog who’s excited to see you.
