puss in boots
One thing that has been absorbing some of my time (unnecessarily perhaps) has been creating a costume. We are attending a costume party at the Spay and Neuter Clinic tonight. This is no ordinary costume party because the ones who are wearing costumes are pets. I came up with the brilliant idea of dressing Lucy up as a Smore. She is white and fluffy and I have always called her my little marshmallow so the idea seemed perfect. Little did I forsee that even after we created the cardboard crackers and cardboard pieces of chocolate and finally wriggled it onto our anxious dog, that Lucy would be terrified of it. I gave up the attempt in utter defeat this morning and ended up falling on plan B. I will post pictures later.
There has also been a lot of gearing up for the holidays. Packages arrive everyday with essential oils, large quantities of bulk oils, bath brushes, soap dishes and many more wonderful things to add to my shop before Christmas rolls around. I'm already feeling the pressure. Time is flying by, the air is so much cooler and starting to smell of winter. The final leaves of fall are giving one beautiful finale
before falling to the ground and giving in to their fate.
The music of Bach fills the house as Warren learns about another amazing composer. We sip tea, read "On the Banks of Silver Lake" and try to enjoy all the little moments we are given.
