There you see Tonks nestled on Blanket Mountain between two Christmas pillows. The pillow on the left is the same one Evan posed with yesterday. I don't think I mentioned this yesterday, but I got that pillow on major clearance at Target after Christmas 2 years ago. It's been on my couch since. The pillow on the right is covered with a festive red truck pillow cover my mom made me last Christmas. I love it and it of course decorates my couch all year.
In case you're curious about Blanket Mountain, on which Tonks is relaxing in the above photo, I'll give a brief history. I washed and dried a load of the furbabies' blankets the other day. I got sidetracked on my way to their storage spot, and so I momentarily placed them on the couch. They did not end up there momentarily, though, because a cat or two immediately found the pile and established it as Blanket Mountain. Maybe one day in the near future I'll get to reclaim the blankets of Blanket Mountain as my own. Maybe.
Festive Flashback Doodle of the Day
Both of our previous flashback Christmas in July doodles took us to the beach. In today's doodle, from 2019, we're inside on a warm and sunny day, trying to decorate for Christmas in July.
Tip of the Day
Today's tip is yet another one that you all certainly know or have figured out for yourself, but we'll mention it anyway. To help your house remain fresh and clean, don't forget to regularly wash blankets and other items that your kitty or pup uses. Blankets, pet beds, pillows, pillow cases, and other such features in the home can accumulate pet hair, dander, and other debris and odors. Our kitties and pups not only contain their own fur and dander, but they also go into litter boxes, walk on the floor, walk outside, and so on and so forth, and so they can indeed have debris on them that might be a bit less than clean. So, consider all the items in the home your cat or dog uses and add those to your list of laundry. This is also why it's good to regularly vacuum carpets, rugs, and even couches and chairs.
