January is almost gone and I have no idea how it got away from us. But I take reassurance that February is a short month and then it will be March which is almost Spring. I have no right to complain since we have had a mild winter so far with mostly sunny days. But still I long for Spring.
Lucy has enjoyed our cooler than normal weather. She runs and runs like a puppy. And then she rests. Often in the most unusual ways.
Regular readers already know she loves to sleep with her head on a chair rung.
Here's another example
And sometimes she puts half her body underneath a chair. I have no idea why.
Our patrol dog, Lucy looks out the windows quite often. There are several windows that are the right height and she frequently gets up to check out what's going on outside.
I saw an interesting spot that featured several football players who were not drafted into the NFL. But they didn't give up and they signed on to a practice team. Then they worked hard to prove they had the ability to play professional football. And they will be playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday. We should take a lesson from them. Far too often we fail to work for the things we really want for fear of failing or of making mistakes.
BTW: I won't be watching the Super Bowl. I have absolutely no interest in which of my very least favorite teams will win. And I've seen far too many of the commercials already and will surely see more of them on Monday. So I'll spend Sunday reading. We won't even have our usual Super Bowl Sunday marinated tenderloin sandwiches. But if you are going to watch, especially if you are going to Las Vegas or hosting a party, I hope you have a marvelous time. I've heard that many will participate in a drinking game by taking a large drink each time they hear the word "deflate-gate." I hope they all have designated drivers.
Today's quote is from Lemony Snicket:
"There are times to stay put and what you want will come to you.
And there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself"
And another from author Neil Gaiman:
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
GET OUT THERE AND DO SOMETHING
