Today was a good day.
I worked a full day (for me, which is part-time) for the first time in weeks. As I walked into the office this morning I heard a dog collar (which turned out to be a dog bone encrusted with rhinestones) and was greeted with the most beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that I had ever seen– Dallas, my co-worker S’s new puppy!
Those of you who know me well (or heck even not that well at all) probably know that I’m a super-duper animal lover. I grew up with dogs and SHL and I obviously have our fur-baby cats and are ourselves pretty close to getting our own dog, too.
Here are a few pictures so that you’ll believe me when I say just how cute she is! She loves to play fetch, running down the hallway shaking her little bottom and wagging her tail. She has what I call “man hands” from Seinfeld– huge paws for such a little girl! Her ears are soft and floppy and they fall casually into her water bowl when she’s lapping up the good stuff. Filtered water is best, our co-worker C (another crazy dog lover) educates us.
Take a look into my morning here (jealous much? ;) )
After work I came home and had a little down time before popping out to the spa. I was there for 3 hours (3 different services) and feel like a new person! (It’s been months since I’ve been able to sit comfortably for anything like even a haircut. I did it once but it was not pleasant). My colorist even gave me some pink streaks and a free blow-dry as a token of kindness after my pain the last few weeks. How sweet!
I picked up a turkey burger on my way home from my favorite, The Cottage, and didn’t get a stomach ache after eating it! It’s a beautiful night here in Boston and my heart is filled to the brim with gratitude for being able to work, love, play with puppies, be pampered, eat my favorite foods without discomfort, and soak up this beautiful weather.
I’m not 100% and I may not be yet for a while, but hope has found its way back into my life again.
Yes, today was a good day.
