10:55 am - Cravings
Master Danger and I are having some difficulties with cravings.

I, of course, crave many things: perfect cool weather, a trip to London, a grey cashmere sweater for either of those eventualities, an Age of Reason scarf. (My strong desire for an end to the government shutdown is of a different kind, and not part of this.) However, either because of the autumn light or because I am feeling slightly down, I have been fighting the worst food cravings.

Peanut butter cookies are of course yearned for, but now the main wish is for cinnamon rolls. Yeasty whole-wheat cinnamon rolls, brushed with butter on top, brown from the oven. (I do not crave Cinnabon or other commercial concoctions, I will note.)

Since I'm being mindful, however, I realize that I do not need these things at all, and so I won't get them. But mmmmm.

Master Danger and I just went out in the backyard, whereupon he dove into one of the shrubbery corners and came back up with a bone, picked clean and aged. How the hell did a bone get there? I blame either the stray cat who strolls through our yard every so often, or one of the fleeting raccoon visits, or possibly a hawk dropping a bit of its prey. Anyway, Master Danger cannot have these bones, and so we had a meeting of the minds (translation: him resenting mightily my taking it from him, but allowing it).

Now he lies at my feet chewing on one of his Nylabones, which will not splinter and cause digestive disaster. The glares I'm getting tell me, however, that this does not really satisfy his craving.

I feel you, Master Danger. I feel you.

May your day be full of satisfied cravings in all the best ways!

Master Danger would not agree, I'm sure! But I thank you very much. :)

Hugs and a lovely Sunday!

Oatmeal raisin cookies and cooler weather is what I crave. I totally understand.

Master Danger has a great human who looks out for his well being. He will come to appreciate this :)

Hugs and cheers for the upcoming week!

I was just looking at a recipe for oatmeal cookies!.... Wait, that wasn't helpful.

Anyway, thanks and hugs, and hurrah for your Sunday evening!

I keep trying to tell myself Oatmeal is good for me.

So far, the intellectual part of my brain just laughs {G}

Cinnamon rolls and gray cashmere sweaters, and scarves are three of the best things in life. Unfortunately I can only have two of them, but it could be worse. Please have some rolls for me. ((Hugs))

We can abstain from cinnamon rolls together. [hugs]

Happy Monday, with scarves and good things!

*hugs* A cinnamon tea, perhaps, with a nice piece of toast? Or perhaps some cinnamon toast? I do know the feeling; I've been fighting a losing battle of late against my need to Eat All The Things.

Of course a Nylabone won't do for Master Danger, you gave it to him. Nylabones are for wimps, for mere tame dogs. He is Master Danger, Fierce Wild Corgi, and he finds his own prey to gnaw.

I wonder if he's been hoarding that bone until it was at the peak of aged wonderfulness, and then you took it from him, you meanie! (Don't tell the Dangerous Dog, but I'm actually on your side in the matter, splintery bones are bad for cats too).
