Lucy looks out at the rain.
While Ellie just lies there thinking.
Ellie always makes this play-bow before going down the stairs to be groomed.
Two beds side by side but two dogs side by side in one bed.
On sunny days we went for long walks.
Lucy chooses a soft pillow on which to rest afterwards.
February is speeding by. Today is my son's birthday. His wife surprised him. She asked me for the recipe of the chocolate pound cake my son always requested for his birthday when he lived at home. She doesn't often bake, but she followed the directions to perfection and baked the cake, made the icing, and decorated it. My son was impressed and somehow I got thanked as well though I did no more than share the recipe. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR SON!
I am seething with anger about some of the political rhetoric of the past week. I had written two lengthy paragraphs in this post and then I remembered that Fridays are supposed to be golden. So I will hold my piece, at least for today.
Our thought for the week comes from Trappist monk, Thomas Merton.
"The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all living beings which are all part of one another and all involved with one another."
We are all interdependent, folks.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
