Two Small Owls

Yesterday, I got my order from doudou birds. They are even cuter in person, (in owl?).

I posted their picture on Facebook, and asked what I should name them. Because she is the littlest, the cutest, and the most precious, Kelly‘s three year old niece Maddie won the rights. At first, she said Joey and Snoopy, but later asked her mom “let me see those owls again” and changed it to Bot and Millie. The bigger one on the left is Bot and the smaller is Millie. Apparently, these are characters from Umi Zoomi on Nick Jr.

Bot and Millie are my new mascots for this blog, (along with Dexter and Sam, of course). I love them because they are equally wise and sweet, small but brave, serious and silly.

Small Stone: Blueberry Bagel

A snowy day, sitting at a small table in the coffee shop waiting for a friend. On the plate in front of me, a blueberry bagel warm from the toaster. I pick up one half, and the smell of hot blueberry fills my nose, touches my face and travels all the way to my belly. Rich, sweet but not too sweet, thick. It even smells blue.
