I'm free! I'm free!

Today is bath day for the doggies. I just returned home from the groomer and poured my first cup of caffeine.

The house is blissfully silent with no undercurrent of canine tension. No low growls. No tap of nails on the floor. No baleful stares at me from either side of the door.

Today is mine, all mine.

Except it's shedding season. Before I can get down to some serious writing work, I need to de-doggy the place. I'll actually be able to dust and vacuum and enjoy a No Dog Hair Zone for a few hours.

It's the little things that keep me happy.
