LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

Fridays Are Golden



Regular readers already know that Lucy situates herself in some very awkward positions.  Oftentimes she will lie with her head on the stone hearth.  It looks very uncomfortable.



Lucy rests her head on the hearth




I'm fine, Mom.  It's not all that bad.
No, I didn't shove Ellie under the chair.
I think she just likes it there and I know she wants me to have enough room.




Lucy pays no attention as to whether or not a bed is already occupied.
Here she simply sits on Ellie's head.




Don't worry, Mom.  I'm almost settled.




And this seems to be Lucy's favorite position.
Honest, Mom.  Ellie doesn't mind at all.
She likes for me to keep her warm.




Today, utility vehicles are heading from NC and other states to New England in anticipation of a massive and destructive blizzard there.  Heavy snow and hurricane-force winds are certain to cause major blackouts.  So on this Friday we send out positive energy to our friends in those states.  We will be thinking of those in harm's way.

The Buddha said:

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.  Happiness never decreases by being shared.

So this weekend, share your own happiness.  Seek happiness from your loved ones.  We're all in this together.


HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!

Monty always tries to occupy the same space as Sam. Sam just gets up and moves...

Pretty sure the Ramada Inn in Xenia was a rallying point yesterday for crews now likely on their way east. Godspeed to those in harm's way. Thank you for sharing your girls with us! I do love them so...

a friend in Boston just reported water pouring through his bathroom ceiling....he lives in a large old apt. building. No time to write anything further, so I will have to wait and see what has happened. I send my good wishes out to everyone in this storm's path, especially those who are still living in dire circumstances due to Sandy. Man, how much can a person take?

Your girls, as always, bring a smile to my face. Have a lovely weekend!

The hearth doesn't look that comfortable, but as she does what she wants, it can't be all that bad!

I adore your Friday posts and pictures of your girls.

Wishing all those in the storms path a safe and quick recovery. Makes me feel guilty that we had to put on sunscreen as well as our a/c today!
In Lucy's eyes, she is number one. And who can blame her????
Stay warm!
