new england quiet before the work

skating on the thin ice and we're in the hands of fate

2011 09 02 daily commute 001

tea today: Stash holiday chai, which has almost as much nutmeg as Woodchuck Fall Cider.
teacup today: white roses, the final cup from ctwriter's awesome teacup gift bag. I am looking forward to the new house, which has an actual built-in glass-front butler's cabinet in which one could, for example, store and display teacups!
dog today: badly in need of a grooming intervention

Today is a Rest Day, at least exercise-wise. There need to be some yoga later, but no running this morning. Running tomorrow, and possibly climbing or kayaking, though the rivers are all still pretty high and full of debris. There was just a "kayak at your own risk" warning on the radio re: The Mighty Connecticut. Which is, in all honesty, mighty enough: a pretty goddamned big and tricky river, with a nasty undertow. As I understand it, it's one of those deep U-shaped channels that result in sneaky currents detrimental to swimmers.

Only a thousand words on Shattered Pillars yesterday, because I got distracted by a bunch of distracting things--all of them quite positive. I've revised and expanded the two existing chapters, though, and started chapter three, though, and the POV that's new to this book. So that's kind of awesome.

And now I have to go to work, the first of which work is writing the cover copy for Book of Iron.


All I can think, looking at that picture, is "how close is that TAIL to that TEACUP????"

I have an eighty-pound lab-hound cross, myself.
He was actually about three feet away. He's rather a large dog.
Phew. :)
Tea cup, schmee cup. That is one big, hairy, ridiculous dog. It's all about the ears. :-)

He's on watch, no raiders or wolves will get to your teacup while Ace is on duty. Can haz puppy biscuit now?
Have I mentioned that I just like to say, "puppy biscuit?"

Thanks for sharing.

Dogs as Furniture

Oh dear. I'm afraid at first glance I mistook Ace for an ottoman.

But I did think, "What a nice ottoman Bear has!" Which surely counts for something?

Tea Cups

I'm getting more joy out of seeing your photos and hearing about your cozy mornings than I did finding the cups, Bear!

For the inquiring minds, they were from two antiques stores in Barre and East Barre, Vermont. I collected cups over a period of ten years from two places. The East Barre Antiques Mall still exists as far as I know, but the other shop does not.

Ace is a large male Briard, about 27", yes.
I used to have an English mastiff and a great Dane. So Ace seems like a nice medium-sized dog to me.
