Hour 8 3p-4p

Nise @ Under The Boardwalk has posted the Who Keeps You Company mini-challenge. The challenge is to post a picture or tell who or what is keeping you company as you are reading today. So here are a couple pics of my faithful companions. Thanks for the great challenge idea, Nise.

First up is my faithful dog, Farley. He is 12 years old and I just love him to death. He follows me everywhere I go, always changing rooms when I do, even following me to sit in front of the bathroom door. He can't climb stairs anymore (back problems), so he will sit at the bottom of the stairs and wait for me to come back down. I can't imagine my life without him.

Next up, is my daughter, Avery. She is five years old and has been hanging out with me quite a bit today. Since I am mostly sitting in my computer room to blog and read, she has chosen to make herself a little nest on the floor near me. She has a portable DVD player so she can watch movies, her own stack of books and has been playing with several small plush toys, off and on while eating way too much junk food for her own good. She was very excited to have her picture taken for the mini-challenge and gave a wave to all the other readers.

I got so busy taking pics and blogging (and having fun) that I forgot to READ this hour! LOL
