I Like #3 - Hearts, Stuffies
1. I like treating myself to something yummy. It's fun to go out on occasion for a treat. When I worked in the city, going out for coffee was a daily event - necessity even. These days, I wander into my kitchen and put on a pot of tea and then head back to my desk. So, going out for a good latte has that extra charm of being a rare treat. Being Valentines week, it seemed fitting that my treat be decorated with hearts. Somehow eating pretty food is so much more enjoyable than if it was just thrown on a plate (or in a cup) with no care.
2. I like spring flowers. As soon as I see primroses in the grocery stores, I can't resist. They are the first dashes of color in my garden before the bulbs are open. Not long now, though, until we see daffodils in bloom. I'll save those for another post, for now the credit goes to this red primrose. (It snowed the day after I planted it, but the snow has melted now and it looks chipper again.)
Poodle Pick of the Week
This week's poodle pick goes to....bunnies! These bunnies are the poodles' Valentines gifts. My rule is that I don't spend more than $1 per stuffy for the poodles, because they often get destroyed in the blink of an eye. These particular fluffy specimens came from the dollar store and are free of hard eyes, beans, or any other undesirable parts. I also find some good stuffies at the thrift store. No one seems to mind that they don't have squeakers.
Here's what they look like after the first 5 minutes of play. Can you guess whose bunny is the ear-less purple one?
If you guessed Teddy, you're right! He shows his deep admiration for stuffies by disemboweling them.
Luna, on the other hand, gently mouths hers and often is only interested in the stuffy if one of her humans plays with her.
I hope you're having a good week! Thanks for stopping by!
