OK! The quilt first! It's just a nice, poofy "throw" for us guys! It's got flannel on one side, with cool scenes of sled dogs and polar bears and arctic foxes and stuff.
|Me. Dave. On our new quilt.|
It's so comfy! I just love it! It sets off my blue eyes real nice, too, doesn't it? Oh... but it is for both of us. Here was Zim's first reaction to it:
|"Oh, yeah! I totally dig this!"|
The other side is a really cool wolf print:
|The flip side!|
I like that side, too! It's not flannel, it's a polished cotton. Umm... you know. In case you were wondering.
Anyway, the day started with breakfast and a nice, long walk with Mom:
|"Almost home, Zim!"|
Dad is in a golf tournament this weekend, or he would have joined us! Go, Dad, go!
When we got home, we did zoomies and got treats, then did some of this:
|"Dibs on the new quilt!"|
Before I knew it, Dad was home and it was time for lunch. After that, Dad said since it was so nice, how about we all go for a walk together!? It was great. Mom forgot her camera, but we had a great time and walked a really, really long time! Zim and I got big drinks when we got home, then we headed downstairs. Zim hopped in the bathtub for a snooze (don't ask...) and I went to work in the Studio.

Mom was going to use sort of a medium blue for the binding on that big quilt. Seriously! Did she think I was sleeping?!?!? I got up and told her that was NOT the right choice! I chose the navy with red and tan stars (it's the border for the block third from the right in the bottom row -- can you see it?). Much better. (I've had a lot of input into this quilt from the very beginning!) (Oh... and yes, it's taken Mom a while...)
I let her get that put together, then we all went upstairs.
|"What are we going to do now, Mom?"|
Oh. See my Eukanuba bandana? It was in the Studio. I asked if I could put it on and Mom let me. Woo.
Mom said it was time to make dinner, so I did some snoozing. After that, it was time to watch the basketball tournament!
|"You're on the furniture? Are you sure you're comfy up there?!?"|
Sadly, we're not allowed on the living room furniture.
Since Mom didn't cave and come sit on the floor with me, I decided maybe a little serenade was in order.
Zim joined me for a while, too. It was really beautiful! Mom must have really liked it, because before I knew it, we were doing this:
|"How about 'deli'? Did you do that one yet?"|
I multi-tasked: snuggled and helped Mom with her word game. I mean, Siberian Huskies are working breed pups!
Isn't that the best way to spend the day?!? I hope today is just as serene for all of you!
