I read somewhere today that in the interest of keeping your mind positive, you should list three good things about your life each day. So I've started this, somewhat private (meaning that I'm not going to link to it anywhere...but you're certainly welcome to come and read it) blog for that purpose. Every day I will try to list three good things about my life that day, or about my life in general.

Dog World

1. Puppies are getting better about taking the bottle.

2. Polly and Shiloh have adapted to having babies in the house

3. Got our recovered couch cushions back from the upholsterer. (I haven't brought them into the house to see how they look on the couch yet, tho.

1. we now have three new puppies. More weeks of "puppy breath" is always a good thing.

2. the puppies have taken well to the bottle

3. I rescued the "Mama bear" and got her washed and these puppies, as with several litters before them have snuggled up to her.

1. Any day I go to SF is a good day.

2. Seeing City Hall all decked out in Giants celebration stuff, and lit up in orange at night made my heart sing.

3. The Lamplighters gala was hilarous.

Misc. thoughts

1. The Giants won game 3
