Yep, that’s the right here and now actually. Sitting in my favourite spot in the kitchen listening to a little of this,
Which, to be perfectly honest, is the only thing I’ve really enjoyed in the True Blood tv series. Just saying.
Anyway, I digress. Cup of decaf at the ready. Oh, and that’s Jane’s new favourite thing in the world, a Pedi Paws. Turns out, old dogs, kind of like old men. Instead of runaway ear, nose, and eyebrow hair though, their nails grow at super canine speeds. Clipping them was not working out, they kept splitting. Enter the Pedi Paws. Turns out, the thing works pretty good. Mind you, Jane is almost 13 and is in that beyond placid stage of life. I give her a big ol’ cookie, she holds that in her mouth, gets the pedicure, then wolfs down the cookie. Win/win I’d say.
I don’t think I’d recommend it for a more stressed out dog, like say Stella. Thankfully we never have to trim Stell’s nails. She chews on them in the evening while she’s watching tv. No, she really does. She and Jane love tv.
And that’s my moment of domestic bliss.
Oh, and does anyone have any ideas for blocking lace fingerless gloves? I want the stitches to show and blocking is the only way I’m seeing to do that, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the job done.
ETA: I totally forgot to add the following:
1. Fred mentioned in comments the other day that he thought the new Mansfield Park and Mummies book was by a different publisher than Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and he was absolutely right. I sense a publishing feeding frenzy.
2. You guys have given me some great Canadian designers. Keep ‘em coming!
3. Little dog Abbie is super jealous that this post had absolutely nothing to do with her and most everything to do with the other hounds from hell that share our abode. Bummer eh?
