A Snuggly Afternoon

I have a cold.  It hit me on Tuesday morning.  Fortunately, it's not a bad cold ... I thought that it was allergies at first.  I had planned to spend the day clearing out the Hoarder's Paradise that is my sewing room, and I went ahead and got a good start on it.  By lunchtime, though, I was getting tired and I realized that I needed to be a good girl and take a break and chill.  Chilling is not something that I do well, as you probably have already suspected.

With all of my 'chilling' supplies gathered, quilt, iPad, tissue box, and glass of water, Winnie and I settled into the recliner in the living room beside the radiator.

You can't see her, but there's a Chihuahua snoring quietly under that flap of quilt in my lap.

There we sat, Winnie and me, snuggled under the quilt.  She snored and I read.  It felt good to sit and do nothing ... unless you count blowing my nose as something ... I did a lot of that.

At one point, Winnie (and Ruby) alerted to something that I couldn't hear.  Fed Ex was dropping a package on the porch.  The driver didn't knock, and I didn't get up ... and the dogs barked and barked at the 'intruder'.

bark  bark  bark

Big barks from Ruby ... little barks from Winnie.  Ruby did her barking in the foyer by the front door ... Winnie was still in my lap.  Bark, bark, bark, until they realized that they had successfully chased the intruder away.  Then a couple more barks for good measure.

Is he gone yet, Ruby?

Then everyone settled back into what they had been doing ... Ruby asleep in her spot on the family room sofa, and Winnie under the quilt in my lap ... and I continued to read until dinnertime.


  1. Winnie is a good snuggling partner I think -- and an awesome watchdog. Bad Fedex man -- lol. Hope you are feeling better. xo

  2. Thank goodness Winnie is there to help Ruby scare away the intruders.

    Love your quilt! Feel better soon so you can get back to your busy normal.

  3. Chihuahuas are good barkers, that's for sure!

    Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Hope you feel better soon Connie! I'm sure Winnie and Ruby appreciated the opportunity to spend the afternoon chilling with you.

  5. Hope you're feeling better soon..

  6. I think that that is the ONLY way to spend an afternoon battling a cold, girl. Sounds absolutely perfect. :) Hope you are feeling better and back on your feet soon....although snuggled under that pretty quilt with your babies isn't such a bad place to be.... lol

  7. I hope you feel much better soon! Ruby and Winnie ~ two ferocious watch dogs.


  8. Hi Connie, Hope you feel better soon!

  9. Nothing like a pup snuggled against you! NyQuil
    Is my friend! Get better soon!

  10. I must be the only nosy one in the bunch . . . what did Fed-X leave? Good dogs, good Connie for staying down when your body tells you to.

  11. I hope you are feeling better. Some mystery bug got me and is making its way through the local population, but this too shall pass.

  12. I giggle every time I see Winnie. She is like a cartoon character. LOL
