The title of today's post is two-fold. First (as mentioned yesterday), every morning in the winter Maisie loves nothing more than to lay in front of the the heating vent in the second bedroom that I use as a guest room/office. She sleeps in bed with me (more on that later, I'm sure) and as soon as I get up and open the bedroom door, she will stretch out and immediately head all sleepy-eyed for the vent.
But also I am venting a bit about the difficulty of photographing Maisie. She hates or is afraid of the camera for some reason and will attempt to avoid successful picture taking whenever possible. Despite all the adorable photos I may post here, for every one like this:
There are several more like this:
or this (you can sorta see the fear in her eyes...er, eye):
Unfortunately for her, I am very persistent and she usually eventually relents. Or runs away. One or the other.
p.s. happy birthday to our wonderful friend Reba! :)
