I don't know about your mailbox -- though I have a good idea -- but I get a lot of catalogues. Most of them go immediately to the recycling bin, but on occasion a new one catches my attention. One of the things about having a cold is that I spend more time at home and I peruse the mail more carefully than usual.
The other day I started to flip through the catalogue for Uncommon Goods, a company in Brooklyn. There were a number of useful, well-priced and fun gifts, but the one that I found especially captivating was the unicorn pet sweater. I've seen a lot of cute sweaters for dogs, but this may be the cutest. Before anyone writes this off as impractical, please remember that New York dogs are out walking in the cold and the little ones are especially close to the cold, cold sidewalk. There are a few pups I know that are definitely putting this cold-weather outfit on their lists for Santa. Does anyone dress their pup for cold weather?
This is my second day of staying home and resting. I did get out to the walk-in clinic this morning and was pleased to hear that my lungs are clear and my ailment is a bad cold. I have cough syrup and I'm still drinking lots of ginger ale and, while I'm not 100% cured, it's amazing what two days of rest and care will do for a cold. I hope to be out and about tomorrow, but nothing too strenuous.
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care. Colds are no fun!
