Sitting Room By the Window
When I tackled straightening up and sweeping the sitting room, I decided it might be easier to just go ahead and rearrange the furniture rather than sweep around and under it. So I moved almost everything, except the little sofa, to try to make it a little cozier. The big chair on the left, given to me years ago by a great-aunt, is where I spend most of my reading and crocheting time. The little sofa was meant for me to sleep on when company comes and to curl up on while I watched birds at the many feeders this winter. Lily has claimed it, though, as her throne!
Lily supervised and I'm not sure she's happy with the changes. Of course, her rug is in the washer and that is annoying! Like a lot of animals, she's happiest with routine and she hasn't been thrilled by my actions today. I went through the craft boxes and sorted out what I want to take to the show tomorrow. Then Lily was upset when I took the boxes outside. She knows something is going on, since she heard me say the dreaded word "kennel" yesterday.
Sitting Room Window
It's pleasant sitting in this quiet room, looking out across the field at the changing leaves and watching the seasons pass. I'm surrounded by books and usually a contented spaniel is by my side, watching the birds with me and whimpering eagerly when the doves come to feed.
