Sleeping puppy

I’m going to dictate this post very quietly into my phone.

My sweet 3-month-old puppy, Riley, is asleep on my lap.

It is a wonderful.

Outside the weather is cold and overcast.

Earlier we went for a long walk where she interacted with other dogs and friendly people. I find most people can’t resist a baby or a puppy.

After our walk, I sat down for a minute to relax and catch my breath. She drank some water and came immediately asking to come up in my lap.

I could not resist her sweet little face. So here we sit.

There’s no place I would rather be. Stroking her as she sleeps fills me with peace and love.

Through my window I enjoy seeing the trees with their changing yellow and orange leaves.

A large bluebird lands on the fence with what looks like a nut in his beak. Earlier, squirrels had scampered along that same fence.

I have things to do. People to call and email.

But here I sit at peace with the world.
