Day #3 at home with sick Edda. I’m going crazy!
We had chocolate feeding. A snack with cracker sticks that you first dip into chocolate frosting and then dip the frosting covered breadstick into sprinkles. Perfect for breakfast. Edda rejected chocolate! See how ill she is?
We had Vince put together an installation of his art. Medium – cardboard, ribbon and paper. He insisted on doing this all shirtless. I fought with him for a while about the shirt but I knew I was going to lose even before I started.
Lucky Ruby renovated and upgraded her crate with a sheepskin. Now, at night, she refuses to sleep with us at the foot of our bed. I am a bit offended by her preference of comfort and privacy over loyalty. Humpf. (Edit: Jeremy just reminded me that I do the same thing to him. Some nights I want my own bed, so I sneak off to the guest room where I can wrap the whole comforter around me like a cocoon. Ah, oh well, isn’t one suppose to be most critical of things that remind one of oneself? Sigh.)
I am 4 rows from finishing Icarus. I’m sure you guys are excited for me.
