I’m sorry Sadie and I haven’t been around much lately. We’ve had some health issues in our immediate family that we’ve been dealing with. Hopefully everyone is on the mend, but I’ll be having another surgery myself soon, so I don’t think I’ll be able to post regularly for a while yet.
Sadie, however, is great. She is the bright spot in our day, the reason we all get out of bed in the morning, and the only thing guaranteed to make the whole family smile.
To make me feel better recently, Sadie dressed up as Soft Kitty and cuddled in bed with me. For those of you who may not know, Soft Kitty is the personification of a song from The Big Bang Theory TV show. When someone on the show is sick, this song is always sung to make that person feel better. And it seems to work. Sadie’s Soft Kitty impersonation certainly lifted my spirits.
I’ve always loved the traditional garden gnome. As a toddler, I used to watch a cartoon starring a gnome, and ever since I’ve loved the little guys. Now I’m not one to go crazy collecting gnomes – there are only one or two on my lawn. (You may recall some photos I took of Sadie that were photobombed by my zombie garden gnome.) But when I saw the gnome in these photos, I knew she had to come home with me. When Sadie the Gnome is around, my house is definitely Gnome, Sweet Gnome.
In honor of National Teddy Bear Day tomorrow, I put my giant stuffed bear on the couch. A few hours later Sadie randomly decided that this teddy bear did not earn his spot on the couch and needed to be taught a lesson. So she tackled him and wrestled him onto the floor. When I put the bear back on the couch, Sadie immediately leapt onto him, making sure he knew who was the boss of the couch.
