Adorable neighborhood watchdog

Upon my return home from the pharmacy this afternoon, this funny little face surprised me in the window. Paisley is sitting on the back of the couch, looking out the window between the two new Amaryllis stalks growing from our wax-covered bulbs. Her look of reproach makes me giggle. I love being greeted by this…

A double cuddle day

Paisley is a bed hog whose preferred cuddling style could best be described as dog butt in your face. But today I got super lucky and she graced me with two proper cuddles, this one pictured and an afternoon nap on top of me. I think she sensed my stress headache, and once she stopped…

Warm blanket burrowing

Today’s #OneGoodThing was wrapping Mama and Paisley and myself in warm blankets fresh out of the dryer. Oh, what a glorious feeling! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments.

So when Mama and I spotted an adorable, soft fleece “onesie” pajama for Paisley, we couldn’t resist. She tolerated the cozy, festive jumper for a while, and she did finally stop shaking…

She’s got my back

A migraine triggered a Crohn’s flare for me today, leaving me mostly miserable. That is, until sweet Paisley climbed into my bed and nestled herself firmly against my back. It was just the comfort I needed. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s big heart! Day 342 of 365. And Day 1,073 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1…
