Happy Thorsday, little friday, thankful thursday and 80th birthday party for the JLC! It’s been that kind of week, so I’m not sure I ever linked to the post-eye exam report from last weekend. The short version is, all is well.
The post title comes from my own temptations. This time of year, I can barely resist buying more costumes and dressing the fur-girls up. Doesn’t help any at all that a girlfriend had a great idea of how I could honor my vow to Sissy to never make her wear a costume again…
See, Sis doesn’t mind stuff on her head or around her next, but unless the weather is truly foul or it’s her sporty walking vest, she HATES clothes. So… She could be the pope or a bishop, and Gg and I could be nuns.
Or not. What say you? There’s a doggy dress-up Halloween party downtown later this month…
For thankfuls, I’m ever so thankful for the babies that keep on coming. So many of our friends have had a baby this year, are expecting, or are hoping to be expecting soon. While I’m on record as preferring a puppy over a baby, there’s something really sweet about having a new parent tenderly pass their most precious bundle to you. It’s an honor to hold a brand-new life in your arms and wait for those eyes, still not used to the light, to take it all in.
It’s fun to watch their little personalities take off, from second one. One little guy wanted none of the recommended swaddling, at only about 10 hours old, but the little angel we held over the weekend was all about staying warm and cozy.
What are you thankful for today?
