Dog Breath and Lovefests

Oy! I am behind the blog challenge, by two days.


And what a beautiful two days they have been


On Thursday, my partner returned home, after the first over night journey from home in almost 1 and a half years. What for me was meant to be a time of productivity and silence, just felt odd and a little bit sad.


The one benefit of being alone, my dog finally expresses his love (?) for me. When my partner is away, I suddenly become THE object for affection. Felek (my dog) can suddenly cuddle me, kiss me, and he even sleeps with me - back pressed against mine. He will even go as far, as to let me, lowly-undeserving-bastard-of-the-ages-me, smell his breath!


It smells like butterscotch and daisies...

He has a general air of sadness and the odd air of grumpy


Friday was spent working relentlessly on making a pop-up book; which is rude and pointless! It is such a wonderful exercise, it takes some thinking, tinkering and imagination to get the mechanisms to function, and it all very exciting when it works.


Saturday was spent having a love fest, the 3 of us [dog makes 3], walking in the rain and enjoying nature, eating some warm food, spending time together, watching trash tv and napping in a big pile.


Then last night, I remembered...I did not blog, for 2 nights...but I was so loved up, I let it slide, and vowed to catch up on blogs this morning, and my writing today.


So this was a pretty life-updaty post - but it can't always be about art, and my growth, and the hard stuff. Sometimes, it really is just this; that I am super happy, in my warm little bubble, with my two favourite entities and that is a beautiful and useful thing to put into the world too.

oh that sounds so wonderful, to have the time apart and be so happy to be back together, fabulous! And I have to laugh at your dog, as my cat is exactly the same. he is mine, but totally has our daughter wrapped around him, and when she isnt there I will do, and when im not there hubby gets him, and you really know things are off if he goes to our son!

You know, he only started betraying me so hard after lockdown! The funny thing is, food, walks, fun - he knows who to come to - but I don't get the sweet rewards!
