The Big Guy


I slept with the big guy, Cooper, last night. Or should I say, he slept with me? I decided to let him sleep inside the house (instead of in the garage). Why? I was feeling a bit skittish for some reason or other. Some armed robbers were captured a couple of days ago just around the corner. Despite the fact that we have an awesome security system with cameras inside and out, I thought it would be nice to have a big loud dog inside the house. He started out fine. I placed an old quilt on the floor and pointed him to it. He went to sleep. I went to sleep. I woke up during the night to find him on the bed beside me, snoring away. I let him stay.

Yesterday was a good day for me. I vacuumed and steam cleaned the floors. I baked cornbread. I cooked sweet potatoes. I worked on the BOM. I worked on my computer; I made lots of progress on learning my new software. I pieced an entire quilt - very simple pattern. I basted said quilt and even began quilting it.  I do love a productive day!!!

I get asked all the time how I get so much done. The list is the secret. And the list cannot be on the computer! You have to write it down on a piece of paper. It works!

  2. I too would keep Cooper in the house at night!!! He will alert you better than any security system and robbers don't like to hear a barking dog...if they hear him in the garage, they know he's not in the house! Good thinking bringing him in!!!

  3. You know they just love sleeping with people. I had a whole war with my dog about a sleeping place and unfortunately she won it, and she's now sleeping with me.
