Our friends Ben and Selena came to visit this past weekend, so I set aside all things productive and focused on all things fun. My only regret is that I didn’t take any pictures. Sunday, after they left, I spent the rest of my day napping and lazily reading articles. Here are a few of my faves:
I was delighted to read that drinking 8 to 14 glasses of red wine per week might reduce a person’s risk of developing a cold.
I read this interesting and inspirational article about the Whooping Crane being reintroduced in Louisiana.
I learned what Clementine and Winston’s tails might be trying to tell me, and I loved that the hypothetical dog in the article is named Norton.
I came across some hot tips for reusing junk mail. I never even considered giving clothing catalogs second lives as shredded packing material; how neat!
This article about pet toxins was full of information that I’d already heard (and those who’ve had pets for a while might agree with me) , but it would certainly be helpful to a new pet owner or someone who is pet-sitting for a weekend. Still, xylitol being toxic to dogs was news to me, so even confident pet owners probably shouldn’t overlook the article completely.
To avoid having a text only post, here’s a sweet picture. Clementine is often willing to pose when she sees me with a camera, and I love that about her (even if I have to occasionally wag a stick to hold her attention).
