A Cozy Sunday At Dragonfly Cottage & "My Funny Valentine!"

“Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. It was not an expensive piece of wood. Far from it. Just a common block of firewood, one of those thick, solid logs that are put on the fire in winter to make cold rooms cozy and warm.”

Carlo Collodi

Dear Ones…
It was a very cold morning this bright Sunday and once all the little ones were fed and settled I lighted a fire to warm us up and create a cozy atmosphere for my morning of writing and being with the little ones. Everyone was happy! Big Dog Moe likes to lie right in front of the fire so that his fur is almost too hot to touch, but he will bask in it’s glow and sleep for hours…


Wee little Harvey snuggles into his bed but will not lay his head down to go to sleep until the entire room is settled. He does not like things un-settled. He is a very detail-oriented pug. He is looking at me like, “Would you kindly speed it up a little? Some boys need a nap!” I try my best, I tell him, I truly do…


Sampson is waiting in our “chair and a half” for his “other half” to get in the chair but I was busy trying to get a couple of pictures of my new/old vintage cupboard which was just what I needed next to my side of the chair to organize pencils and pens and notebooks and books and fiber supplies underneath and the beginnings of an altar on top and coffee and so much more. I found it for $40 in a little old consignment shop after looking for some time and I am so tickled with it I can hardly stand it! Isn’t is JUST the thing for a “Cozy Room?”

Ahem…

“When she thinks a piece of furniture is cuter than me it’s time to move out… but… she does give me treats…”


And then I was joined by my valentine, my lover boy Flounder the Greenwing macaw who gives the best kisses in the whole wide world. It’s nice not to have to spend Valentine’s Day alone!

We are all wishing you a cozy, happy Valentine’s Day filled with lots of love (And Sampson said to add, “Lots of treats!”) …

Make this the year your resolutions come true!
