doGgy sLUmbeR paRty

The world looks and feels much friendlier today. I am rooted in the belief that all things, even painful things (maybe even especially the painful things) happen for a reason, and am practicing being grateful for the pleasant things in life. Of which I have many.
Kiki's best friend Ena is back! She'll be visiting for a while; exactly how long, no one knows. Could be a week, could be a month. We are always happy to have her. Especially Kiki, who was so happy to see her that she lavished her with kisses and excited yelps. Now, after a small but satisfying meal of sheeps milk, they are dozing in the late afternoon light, probably relieved that the heat is letting up a bit; I know I am. 
We have reserved our room in a lovely bed and breakfast on Cape Cod and are thoroughly looking forward to it. It's going to be a wonderful trip, I just know it. With bike rides, walks on the beach, old white churches, fall foliage, tasty food, and a deep, cozy bed to snuggle up in and stay awake all night in, talking. Believe it or not, after ten years my husband and I still have so many things to tell each other.
For now we've got the We-kend ahead, a time for goofing off and eating all day, taking the dogs for adventures in the forest, and stretching out for mid-day naps under the merciful ceiling fan.


  1. yes, v good choice -when are you off?! We are going to Boston in the fall too! Tho not cape cod - maybe Salem though for Halloween...Kiki and Ena are sooooo sweet xxx
