Happy Thorsday, little friday and Thankful Thursday! Gretchen blogged about Sissy’s cooling vest, and frankly… that’s about all there is to share in dog world. The heat wave is crushing us. Bassets are double-coated, meaning they have a coarse outer coat and a downy undercoat, so anything over about 70 with humidity to match makes Sissy uncomfortable in a hurry.
We did find this pretty feather in the road last night, and I thought of Alison, because we talk about Eastern Jays from time to time.
Isn’t it beautiful, with its natural progression of hues? I think the last two – the darkest two – shades are my favorites. It’s very nice of nature to leave me little blobs of beauty.
And it’s blue, so it reminds me of a new little baby boy I’ll hopefully get to meet soon! (Even though his “you’re here!” present is stalled at halfway… I’m pretty sure even a little newborn doesn’t need a fairly heavy blanket right now.)
Since it is Thorsday, here’s a photo of what I hope the fur-girls are doing at home. Sis has been expressing herself this week. She ate a small serving of Strawberry Whoppers on Tuesday, and yesterday, she shredded a ballpoint pen. (It was one of the Knight’s, with his business’s logo on it… and the Whoppers were his too, so…??)
What little things are making you smile today?
