Quote of the Month: Open the window in the center of your chest and let the spirits fly in and out. Rumi
(My theme for this year’s A to Z Challenge is Open.)
Millie and Willie Cottonpoly, a sock puppet creation, are here to tell you their story during the April A to Z Blogging Challenge.
Millie and Willie enjoy the scent of a Verbena candle while reading the Variety section of the newspaper and vying for pet Leo’s attention.
Leo was very tired after pulling an all-nighter on Monday night. He was rather vulnerable out in the elements, and slept for two days before he got back his vim and verve.
While Millie’s true gift is a dog whisperer, she was able to offer comfort to Leo the cat as well.
Willie: Variety is the spice of life, Millie.
Millie: What spice would that be? Salt or crushed red peppers?
Willie: Both, all of them. Salt is the constant, like knowing that you’re always there, Millie. It’s in everything, and if it wasn’t there, life would be bland. Sometimes, though, a recipe calls for a little crushed red pepper or cayenne.
Millie: You mean, sometimes you want to add a little heat, like when I filled my mouth with hot tamales and my tongue felt like it was on fire.
Willie: We laughed about it, right?
Millie: Yes (chuckles)
Willie: And, you remember it.
Millie: Of course, it was a silly thing to do.
Willie: Silly ain’t a bad thing, Millie. Sometimes, we have to through off old ways of thinking and doing, and add a little spice.
Millie: (smiles) Like taking a leisurely bath in the morning and burning a candle with a new scent, and then go out for coffee in the evening.
Willie: Well, only if it’s decaf. Let’s not get carried away.
Millie: (taps her big toe on Willie’s big toe) How about chocolate cake for breakfast? With ice cream, of course.
Willie: Now, we’re talking.
Go. Create. Inspire!

Oh, such cuteness and lovely sentiments. I love a few hot tamales now and then myself! And cake & ice cream for breakfast is ALWAYS appropriate!
I too had goose bumps, I did enjoy reading
