Oh, that made me laugh! Thank you for the hilarious comments on Andy's post. That was really sweet. He cracks me up. I love him.
Over the weekend there was a sunset. (Only Portlanders will know why that word is in italics: Winter sunsets are oxymorons in the PNW. At least in my neighborhood.) I had to document it. Must mean spring is on its way, though it snowed yesterday morning. As soon as I pulled the shades up and saw it I whipped off my nightgown and threw on a turtleneck and leashed up the puppers. We walked and walked through the quiet morning streets. Clover sits at every corner and waits until you say "okay" to cross. She saw one of her old friends from the dog park about a block away and got so excited her whole body was just wiggling and wiggling. Totally happy. It was so adorable. I really think she did recognize her because she doesn't do that with most of the other dogs we see, especially one that's so far away. That dog's owner said they didn't really go to the dog park anymore because that dog had become pretty ball obsessed. And indeed the dog did have a ball in her mouth on her walk. So she couldn't really stay and chat, because she would've dropped the ball. Clover Meadow took it in stride, as usual.
Sweet Nanny Katie (our neighbors' [and Clover's] nanny, and our trusty kit-assembling helper) brought me a biscuit from Pine State. Still warm. Crazy good. We are packing up the last of the orders today through the weekend — the next batch of fabric is due to arrive here on Friday! Very excited about that. Thank you again, so much, for the orders. I really really really hope you enjoy this one! Just shout if you need me. xoxo
