Smart doggie, looks all set for a warm winter's nap!


At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!
( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well )

Hi Carmen, haha, I just had to share it!

Congratulations on your book; it's great that you've published your poetry. There are so many clever people here in blogland and much of their brilliant writing is just going 'poof', into the ether! I sincerely hope they're doing something about it, as you have. xa

That's one smart pooch you have there.
Glad to see you're back...missed ya. Hope you're enjoying the start of your winter season. The fire looks quite inviting. I'm watching the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team play for the Stanley cup...so ice hockey and your inviting fire are making me feel warm and fuzzy. Of course the wine wouldn't have anything to do with it...now would it? ha!
RNSANE, wishing you the best with your book release!

Hi Karen (MG)! I'm really enjoying the cooler weather. We were fogged in this morning but now it's a beautiful, sunny afternoon. I've decided to fill my days all things I love, reading, craft, walking, decorating. I got into a rut with the computer being all-consuming - not healthy! Hope your team won!

hello alaine! we have the air conditioning on here. nature's exploding into leaf and flower and sunshine! stay warm, stay cosy and snuggle up in front of the fire with a stack of books. steven

Steven, hi! It's hard for me to imagine air conditioning in Canada! It was freezing here this morning and I just had to get a snap of our crafty doggy; he's such a trick! I'll be doing a lot of snuggling up over the coming weeks and loving every minute!

Hi Alaine,

We keep waiting for our first day of Summer. Thought it had arrived yesterday but we're back to the usual today! Tell Taj to move over a bit!

Ah, you know I love the woolly socks weather! Happy Winter to you, Aline!! xx

Hello Alaine, I've just stumbled across your blog and am entranced by the richness of imagery which you have collected. Looking at your profile page, I realise that I share almost all of your interests, including the more unusual ones like etymology, calligraphy and Celtic & Pre-Raphaelite art. Looking forward to visiting again!

Susan said...

Hello, Alaine! That's a nice looking woodburner! Cozy and warm for the puppy!

alaine@éclectique said...

Derrick, I'm sure you're waiting for a bit of warmth in the air to enjoy outdoors! We have both at present, still autumnal afternoons but it will get colder!

alaine@éclectique said...

dancingbeastie, thanks for visiting and leaving a note. I'll jig over very soon to visit you!

Betsy said...

Awww...what a smart pooch! He's adorable! Happy winter to you...we're starting summer!

ruthie said...

alaine, someone knows whats what, this is a cosy photo. The wee stove looks perfect, we were so excited to discover we have one in our new little cottage and cant wait to cosy around it in the cold months. But we are just preparing for summer here and winter seems a long way off!

Vagabonde said...

That looks like a happy dog and a nice warm fire. We are starting the very warm weather here with thunderstorms daily – and always a menace of a tornado. Nice to have you back.

He doesn't look like he wants to share his prime spot! April in Paris wasn't what it is cracked up to be and the radiator stayed on most of May...

but I do love the moments of change (just not repeatedly) - stay cozy!

Wanda said...

Summer seems to have exploded here with rhe flora and fauna, but we're still having numerous spring-like thunderstorms!

Lyn said...

And my sweet kitty is sprawled out in front of the floor fan..awaiting a long lazy summer..we've had crazy erratic weather..90 deg/ down to 45 the next day..what's going on??

Sam Liu said...

A devilishly smart dog indeed, I'm guessing Taj knows where it's warmest and he's going there before anyone else does :D

alaine@éclectique said...

Sam, you're back! I'll look forward to reading about your holiday.

Yes, Tajie's cunning, alright. I call him 'my little tricker'!
