After waking from a mid-winter’s nap,

Gregory napping

Gregory awake and at attention

he sat up, stretched, and yawned, then he realized when it was in the calendar.

“Yay!” he exclaimed. “It’s almost time! I get to model again! Please, Tracey? Pleasepleaseplease may I model your new shawl designs again?”

“Of course,” I answered. Besides, who can resist that face?

29 days after tomorrow…
