There is a lot to like this week but I am having trouble with blogger this morning so this may be short
I Like Iris. These were given me years ago by a friend when she thinned hers. They never thrived until this year. Shrug? Sure are a gorgeous color.
Obviously neglect is working for me this year!
I Like sleep. Uninterrupted sleep. If you read this post on Milo, you'll understand a new puppy has a very small bladder. I stay up late as possible (after midnight) and take him out, and Daddy gets up at 5:30 to let him out again. We had a few 2 AM calls but now seem to be settling into a routine.
Milo has a smaller crate in the bedroom so he's with us but not on the bed. Soon enough he'll be in a big boy bed of his own by ours and we'll all fall into a sleepy time routine. When I left the breeder I took one of the puppies toys so he had a scent of his siblings to sleep. I also place my clothes from that day by the crate so it reminds him we're nearby.
I like using Face Time! Eliza at forest poodles encouraged and led me through how to do it, and getting the ipad made it quite easy. We are keeping in touch. This week I expanded my horizons to include time with Monika and Mary as well. Mary and I shared our latest art projects and it was almost like being there!
It's like living in an episode of the Jetsons!
I Like getting surprise gifts in the mailbox!
My friend Pat in NY sent the cutest fabrics as a thank you for a cowl I knitted her over the winter. Awe shucks you didn't have to do that but I'm glad you did... Don't you love it when someone really listens to your likes and chooses gifts based on that? So sweet. Cows! tulips! Oh the State of Florida fabric is really special. I grew up in Tampa, being a beach babe hence my love of palm trees and flamingos!!
Milo Likes all the special gifts Eliza sent in a puppy preparedness package!
His family room bed has a soft blanke with fox pictures, his squirrel toy which is as big as he is has the absolutely best ears to chew and he's making use of the poop bags. Mommy is using the journal to note his progress. I'm loving the beautiful poodle kitchen towels as well!! Thanks Auntie Z
Milo likes meeting people... he's met several neighbors who admired him and Miss Bonnie even brought him a chew toy on her first visit yesterday. He loved her! So did Cole.
I like having a poodle to love. It has changed my outlook. I hear myself laughing out loud and that hasn't happened in a long time. It is true about the heart expanding with love.
My lesson from him this week is to see the world with fresh eyes, and all the joy there is in it.
