Much as Lucy loves the fire and the warm hearth, she misses one other thing. We have always kept the house cool in winter. We routinely wear sweatshirts or sweaters as we go about the day. But it did get chilly when we stopped to sit and read. And especially in the early mornings before we got dressed. At those times it was not unusual to find someone sitting in a recliner and using a quilt or afghan for cover. Lucy found that the area underneath the footrest made a great little tent just for her.
I'm not actually underneath the covers, Mom
I'm sure no one can see me under here. I'm completely hidden.
Must remember not to wag the tail.
Oh, it's so comfy. Wonder why they don't give me my own blanket?
Now I'm on lookout duty
Now that we have the warm fire, we simply turn on the fire while the coffee brews. It quickly warms up the room. And poor Lucy has lost her tent. On the other hand, she does have the warm hearth upon which to lay her head.
Today's quote comes from Dorothy Parker:
"If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to."
BTW: Did you know that Dorothy Parker bequeathed her estate to Martin Luther King, Jr.? And that upon his death the remainder of the estate went to the NAACP?
HAVE A MOST WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
I have guests for the holidays so I won't be blogging for a couple of weeks. I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday, whichever one you celebrate. And if you don't celebrate any of them, have a great week anyway watching the others in their frenzy.
