Boswell's Bath Time

Happy Monday, Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful (and hopefully long) Thanksgiving weekend! Of course, no matter how long it is, it could always be longer, amiright? We had a great weekend, I hosted my family and cooked up a storm. Loved it. Had a great time. Ate too much, naturally.

This post has nothing to do with crafts, or cooking, or anything practical, it's purely for my own enjoyment, because this thing that happened made me giggle, I hope you'll indulge me, I have to share.

On Saturday my hubby took the dogs for one of their many daily strolls, they're very spoiled. There's a park very close to our home, which the Mokelumne River runs along side of, we visit often. This Saturday however, Boz just had to get in that water, had to, like he was pulled by a magnet (or more likely, a dead fish!) and hoooboy, did he come home stinky!


Boswell is such a good sport when it comes to baths, he sits quietly in the sink, looking forlorn and humiliated, but he doesn't try to escape, or shake water everywhere, he's a good boy. So good, in fact that I had time to grab my camera and snap some photos. His face cracks me up, so expressive! And normally Boz is a puffball, seeing him wet just kills me, he looks like a tiny drowned rat. What follows is the inner dialog that I imagined from him...

 "It was only one little fish! I don't smell that bad, not enough for all of this!"

"You're going to put this in the internet, aren't you? This is so embarrassing, mom!"

"Really? You're going to make a bubble wig?"

"No mom, I do not look like George Washington."
 (Yes he does! Eeeeeeep! He's so cute!)

"Rinse me good, I don't want to smell like mango shampoo when you're done!"

"I require a warm hairdryer. Stat."

Aww, poor Bozzy! He did get a nice long brush and a warm hairdryer, and he only smells slightly like mango, but that's worlds better than dead fish. A few minutes and a few treats later and he was back to his happy, puffy self! He went straight out into the backyard and rolled on the grass... le sigh.

Hope you got a little smile from my boy, Boz! Sometimes Monday's just require something silly! He's pretty darned silly & adorable if I do say so myself.

A Fairy Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!

Lookie here, there's a new resident in the fairy garden!
Looks like she's made herself quite at home and claimed the cottage as her own.

She sure is a pretty thing!
She came to me from far away, a special gift from a very, very special friend. I'm so glad she's here, working her little brand of magic, and reminding me how special a thing it is to have friends, and how thankful I am for them.

I'm grateful for so much, thankful for all that I have and those that I know, and every single one of you!
My little fairy and I wish you an abundant and cozy Thanksgiving!
