Oh! The weather outside is frightful. Going down to 10 degrees tonight, I hope the chickens huddle up close to one another. Me? I'm gonna sleep with a big furry German Shepherd (and no, not a hairy guy who wears lederhosen and tends sheep).
I am unusually sleepy and not the least bit inspired. I really am going to go crawl into bed with my dog, it makes us both very happy. My sister stayed over a few months ago and I gave her my bed and took the couch. Each night my dog waits for me to come to bed and then I invite her up for a snuggle and when asked, she gets down and sleeps on her dog bed. Well, I forgot to mention this routine to my sister and the dog got tired of waiting to be invited up and took it upon herself to launch into the middle of the bed with my sister in it. I heard about that for a long time. Good night all.
These five items are outta here:
1. A Slinky, the real metal kind
2. The Odyssey by Homer on 11 CDs
3. A wooden Corona cigar box
4. A tape measure (another thing that I seem to have accumulated an extraordinary number of)
5. The Giver by Lois Lowry
