Lap it up, my doggies. Enjoy the warmth of the sun before the winter snows come. That pretty stone floor will be covered in snow and your favorite place won’t seem quite as welcoming.
Watch the cars and motorcycles go by. Bark at the occasional jogger. Make sure the deer and chipmunks and squirrels know this is your territory.
I love your ever-vigilant, house-guarding attitude. But today, take a deep breath and enjoy.
My dear friend Brenda from Cozy Little House and I are starting a series. We’re calling it Defending the Small House. Thanks to Casey for giving us that title – she used those very words in a comment on my Living Comfortably in a Small Space post. Brenda and her two little dogs are living in just over 1000 square feet and Don and I (who are both tall) are living with our two big dogs in 1200 square feet. Each week, we’ll give our take on a particular small space topic. And we’ll ask for ideas from you, as well. Hope you’ll join us.
