Random Birthday Thoughts

Today is my birthday. The day has been low-key. Phil has strep, and went to bed early, which left me alone, quietly, with things I love:

My Kindle, newly loaded with this month's reading group book (The Shadow of the Wind), a stack of favorite print books, my little knitting bag loaded with a knitting project (We Call Them Pirates hat in the new Amy Butler organic yarn), and a martini -- with blue-cheese stuffed olives, no less.
And Pepper:
Pepper is an 11-year-old Dachshund we're test-adopting. My uncle and aunt had to find a good home for Pepper when they moved from their house on 7 acres to a retirement condo. The family voted 4 to 1 (with Phil as the lone dissenter) to try Pepper out. So far, relatively so good. Current voting has 4 of us loving Pepper, and Phil neutral. But we'll win him over.
I worked from home for 2 days to help Pepper transition to our little family. He was a nice colleague:
Max and Pepper are becoming fast buddies:
Downloading the pictures of Pepper, I found a sampling of random happiness from the last couple months. Like dapper Tommy being ring bearer at Phil's cousin's wedding. Here's Tom hanging out with his cousin and giving himself the photo bunny ears. Goofy boy:
Tom took his role very seriously; it's unclear if this is a wedding or funeral:
Aren't the bride and groom adorable?
And here's Sylvia peeling a hard-boiled egg. Shirtless:
And helping me with the lavender harvest. Pantsless:

My new favorite thing in the world: the Pioneer Woman's Potato/Leek/Bacon/Goat Cheese Pizza. Try it if you haven't. You'll thank me. i think I was the only one eating this one:
Twenty-four more minutes of my birthday. The family's asleep. Pepper's in his cage. I might just get a little crazy.

What a great blog. Loved the pic of Max and Pepper and the random ones of Tommy and Sylvia. We so enjoyed our time with them all. Can't believe you'll be here in just over 2 weeks. Love, Mom

I would dispute whether Sylvia loves the dog. Maybe it's the screaming and sobbing when he follows her up the stairs, but something tells me her feelings stop somewhere short of love.

True. Sylvie doesn't like him going up the stairs with her or in her room. But she loves hugging him and petting him and giving him treats. So I'm cutting her some slack for her general inexperience with dogs.

A dog is the epitome of unconditional love. Next to impossible to resist.

"Resistance is futile!"
