Here’s some twinner weekend collages -two pictures related to one little story, all wrapped and ready for your reading pleasure.
After attending the open house for the community center on Main, I came home with a door prize: a super soft throw blanket. The kids love it. On Sunday, Alice curled up and fell fast asleep under my arm and there we stayed for TWO HOURS on the blessed day of rest. Sometimes I just need two hours of listening to her breath, feeling her warm little body next to me, and letting the world pass by while I do it.
There’s one other member of our little family unit who loves the blanket and will -I found out the hard way -FIGHT for it.
Meet Apollo -our new pet. Believe it or not, he IS a puppy. Throwing a 15 month old dog into a family with an almost-two-year old is akin to adding hail, fire, and brimstone to a blizzard.
What can I say? I like to live on the edge.
Before signing off, I want to pass on a recommendation. If you have Amazon Prime, pull your throw-loving kids and puppy close and stream, “Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street.” It’s kind of a great mix between “Pushing Daisies” and “The Buttercream Gang.”
