Thumper seems to really like my new pajamas, too. She climbed up on my outstretched legs and made herself at home whilst I tapped away on the computer. I happened to have the camera within reach. Eventually I had to move–my leg was asleep, even if the rest of me wasn’t–but she had a good long nap in a bed of roses, one might say.
My bedjacket arrived today! It’s lovely, a true “classic red” (the color listed online) in person rather than the raspberryish tone it had in the photo, and it harmonizes beautifully with the pajamas. The velour gives it a rich look and it’s not heavy or bulky–just right for keeping away a chill. I am going to see a stage production of A Christmas Carol at Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery Saturday (this will be the fourth or fifth time, I think) and was just saying to Benny I have to figure out what I am going to wear. He smiled and gave a nod towards my bedjacket and waggled his brows.
I chuckled. “Well, with a pair of black dress pants and some jewelry, yeah, it could work.”
“Hmmmmm. I’m thinking now that I should get a smoking jacket,” he said with a definite twinkle in his blue eyes.
I laughed. “Oh, yes. And a pipe. You wouldn’t have to actually smoke it. Oh, and a snifter of brandy . . .”
Wouldn’t he be handsome? 😉
