I came so close yesterday to having the most awesome day ever....wait til you hear....
First of all, mom scurried around after church to get the house tidied up. This usually means we're going to settle down to a whole afternoon of being couch-potatoes with snuggling and knitting. (I'm in.)
THEN....we went outside and picked a whole bunch of daffodils. Oh, this is even better. Now we can smell the outdoors while we snuggle on the couch.
BUT WAIT....soon the doorbell 'rang' (actually, it doesn't work, but I couldn't hear it even if it did). Some people came to the door, and they brought CAKE!!!
While I'm wildly celebrating my good fortune, Daddy snuck up behind me---snapped on my leash---and before I could even say 'Holy-Moley', I was whisked away.
For almost two hours I fussed and fumed, F-I-N-A-L-L-Y wearing down Dad who let me return to the house...just in time to see people picking up knitting bags (I!LOVE!LOVE!LOVE!poking!my!nose!in!those!bags!!...you KNOW how many ball-bands I could have lifted??) And wrapping paper! AND!PLATES!WITH!CAKE!CRUMBS!!!!
And then everyone left.
It was couch-potato/snuggling/knitting time.
