LL Bean sent me an email that I had an unused credit that was soon to expire. It wasn't a large one so I decided to use it to get a little something for Lucy. I came across a blue bone pillow that seemed perfect for her. After all she adores her bee pillow. I'm happy to report that she loves the blue bone as well.
Lucy snuggles with her blue bone
She nestles between the pillows as if she were in a little nest.
But the bee pillow is still the preferred one for bird watching.
Or snoozing a bit if things get boring out there.
It's been quite a busy week for our Lucy. We are having my husband's walk-in shower re-tiled so Lucy must watch over the workman. Since she is not allowed in the master suite, she must follow him from the garage door to the bedroom door every time he comes and goes to get supplies. That means many of her naps are interrupted.
It's warmer here but raining so the days are a bit dreary. I've started a new knitting project, an afghan for my husband. I told him it might be finished by the time we are ready for a long-term care facility. He did not laugh.
Today's quote is for our North Carolina US Senators, especially freshman Senator Thom Tillis. And it's also for their 45 partners in an unprecedented act of spite.
It comes from Cicero, philosopher of old:
"A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not to be a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."
So far our body politic is not so infected that we cannot resist. We can indeed survive this Congress. I hope that people will begin to see that the good of the Nation and its citizens are not the priority of some of our "leaders." As the legendary Mrs. O'Davis said, "Lord help us and save us."
If we are to survive, we must raise our voices. Please contact your own Senators and Representatives and let them know how you feel. You can find their names and addresses along with all pending legislation here
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
