Summer Obsession

One day, as I walked along the sidewalk, I noticed something interesting. Daddy saw me looking and kicked it. It hurtled along, going this way and that, and I caught it. I ran back to Daddy, dropped it, and he kicked it again.

Thus began the summer of the pine cone.

Mommy makes me leave them outside, so they've piled up in the front of the house. Pretty impressive stash, no?

Pine cones are a blast!

Rainy Days

I love rainy days.

They are perfect for relaxing on the couch, reading a book, dozing off, and dreaming.

Jeremy doesn't like them as much because he gets scared when Thunder Man comes, but between storms he sleeps like a baby.

Wind Beneath My Wings

I've discovered lots of good napping spots in our house. There's the couch, the other couch, Mommy and Daddy's laps, the bed, the bathroom rug, even the floor. Sometimes, though, a girl just needs to feel a little whisper, a zephyr, a breeze of the slightest proportions.

Slap Fest

Daddy likes to get Jeremy all riled up, chasing his tail, barking, pretending biting his face off. We call this game, generally, Slap Fest. It looks a bit like this:

and this:

and this.

I like to play, too, but my favorite thing is when Kitty comes over and baps him for getting too wild.

Cousins and other relatives

Mommy visited some of her family. She got to walk Alex, her sister's dog, pet Choice, her other sister's cat, and she got to meet her cousin's dogs. Here is Lila. Doesn't she look like me with straight hair?

Here's one of me to compare.

I would like to invite her over to play, but Mommy says she lives too far away.

Comfort and style

Our new sofa arrived on Friday. It is very long and turns the corner.

It is so big it took three pictures to capture.

There is room for everyone to sit or lie down, which I am about to do right now.

I love my new couch!
