Today, Dani made an impawtant realization; one that will help her get ahead for the rest of her life. It came as she was lying on the foyer rug and began to take a stand. The thought came to her soon after.
"I realized dat yoo gotta put a foot down ...
... before yoo kin getta leg up!" said she.
This moment was so profound that I commemorated it by making my very first Blingee:
Dani has very sensitive ears so is very attuned to sounds all around her. Here her ears are taken aback because Sox (who is under her chair) is making a very annoying noise.
"Dere he goes again!" exclaims Dani.
"I jus' cant stand his slurping!" saysshe.
"Why duz yoo always has yoor tongue hangin' out like dat?" she asks.
"It jus' collecks yoor drool."
So Dani had a bright idea. She would get Sox something else to slurp rather than his own saliva. She presented him with a Slurpee complete with straw.
This is Sox BEFORE the Slurpee.
And this is Sox AFTER!
It's quite counterintuitive considering the drink is called a "Slurpee", but the key is the straw. When Sox sips in all that yummy slush, he doesn't want even one drop of it to escape -- so he keeps his mouth closed. Much quieter.
Sox is so thankful to Dani for giving him the Slurpee.
"Fanks, Sis" says Sox. "Is yummy!"
And Dani is thankful that Sox is no longer slurping his drool.
With autumn approaching, Dani is transitioning into both a warmer fur coat and into warmer colours in her accessories.
"Yup, is gettin' cool out here, speshully in da mornin'" says Dani.
"My fur coat is gettin' thickah -- between dat and growin' myself mosta my clothes doan fit anymore."
Lucky thing Dani has a closet full of hats and purrses, and drawers full of jewelry. Today she has chosen amber as her theme. She's wearing a lovely amber wide-brimmed hat adorned with dried flowers and curlicued ribbons.
Her long silver and coral necklace is very striking.
"As long as it duzn't hit me!" exclaims Dani.
And on her right paw she has added a rose gold ring with baltic amber stone. Just the right touch methinks.
Dani's purrse has an amber suede front with an overlay of dark brown tooled leather depicting flowers yet again.
Her style has always been a little "out there", but then that's her purrsonality!
