Firstly, my pal wondered about her books. Yes! Yes! They arrived and have been read already. I am pondering the pattern for the Knight's Fred socks, and they are both strong contenders. Thank you so very much!
Then, poor Mugsy got lost in the shuffle yesterday, so a belated Dog on Thursday shot:
Not a great photo, even by my standards, but so cute! (I have an older camera phone. Let's blame it on that.) Pop enjoys having the little imp around to play with his dog, and to play with him. That chair sits on the other side of my desk, and when a human isn't in it, Mugsy is. Or, as the evidence shows, when the human will share, Mugsy's STILL in the chair. I love having him at work with me. My stress level seems lower since he's been there daily. Maybe it's the mini-walks, but I think it's more than that...
Thanks to everyone who wished us well yesterday. It really was a day worthy of a landmark anniversary, as Monica called it. Mr. Flowers Are a Waste of Money Because They Die (aka: the Knight) evidently got caught up in the moment, because when I returned from running a few errands (read: shipping off Anner's package and picking up the Knight's anniversary gift) I found these lovelies on my desk!
You know they're going to be great flowers when even the boxes are pretty. It's as if they were designed for me, with the pink, brown and robin's egg blue and the dark red and pink!
Oh, but you want to see the flowers too! They're still opening up, but the whole house is fragrant. Yum!
Then, we went to dinner at our favorite restaurant. If you're anywhere in central or northern Virginia (I even saw a Maryland tag in the lot), you owe it to yourself to try The Bavarian Chef. Anne, I promise we're going next time you're here!
(And thanks to Nichole for coaching me on how to beat Blogger at its photo loading game. I finally had to try it, as Blogger lost interest in loading photos after Mugsy and Pop!)
