Today has started out as one of "those" kind of days. I woke up late and groggy from another night of interrupted sleep courtesy of my youngest. I realized I hadn't run the dryer so the boys didn't have dry pants for school. It's foggy and grey. The news is depressing. You know how it is.
I was sitting here in a half-funk, nursing a cup of coffee (my first of what will likely be many today) and looked out the window to see my dog running in circles around the yard. "Weirdo", I thought.
|(he isn't blurry in real life, he's just running really fast)|
I got up and went outside to see what he was so excited about. Turns out he had found a cob of field corn that we had put out for the squirrels. Apparently a cob of field corn is the best kind of toy in the whole world, if you're a dog. We played fetch with it for a few minutes and wouldn't you know, it made me feel a whole lot better too.
I think I'll have another cup of coffee, give Charlie a good scratch, and get to work. Since I had a number of emails from people asking for more acorn ornaments, I decided to make another batch. They will be in the shop shortly and it will be the last batch before the end of the year.
If your day is grey, I hope it turns around for you. Try the dog and corncob combo if necessary.
