I got up at 4am as usual and began to read some of my fav pages and blogs. I re read my share from yesterday. I am fascinated by that story. I read the Daily Post word prompt of the day and decide to accept the challenge. Fluff. I think about fluff and immediately my thought goes to dogs for obvious reasons. Then I think fluff like write something fun or ‘fluff’ vs. deep or serious. Then I toy with writing about the fluff of my job. I wonder if the topic of down was fluff because it is fluffy. I had a huge disagreement with a dear friend this week pleading with her to not purchace a certain brand of jacket that uses really cruel suppliers for down and fur. That story would be kinda depressing for a Monday morning. Hmmmm. Then I look up the definition of fluff in the dictonary. This is the Merriam Webster definition

Then I spend another 20 minutes jumping from linked word to linked word which makes me hungry. I go eat. That tends to be my go to move when I am hungry. Now back to fluff. My brain circles back to dogs and fluff. I notice how fluffy my dog Elvis is. You can follow him on instagram. I cuddle him and play with him for a bit. Then I go to instagram to copy his profile to link here. Good bye another 20 minutes. Because dog photos are adorable obviously.
I would also like to say that snow is fluffy. When it is not -20 like it is here today. Then the snow seems like it is comprised of billions of tiny, cold, shards of glass. I am glad I work from home and don’t have to go out. The dogs barely want to go out long enough to pee. I stand there freezing watching them. Now I am cold so I go have a hot bubble bath and read some of my fav blogs. Darn. I forgot I was trying to write something about fluff.
I think of things that rhyme with fluff and if I like saying them or not. I think of my favorite words to say. Igloo is great word as is wood. Do you ever wish a word was called something different or meant something different? For example phlegm is a word suited for its meaning in my opinion. I really like the word elbow. Not the way it looks like I do with igloo but just the way it sounds out loud. I do not care for the way BLog sounds outloud. Lovely to look at as a word but when I say it aloud I think it should be the name of a villian in Harry Potter or something. I wonder if other people spend their time caring about these things. What are some of your favorite or least favorite words? Please comment and let me know.
I am going to read what other bloggers have written about fluff because clearly I have nothing to say on the subject.

I LOVE my job and work very hard to make it a profitable business. It is however a lot of work, very little of which is actually taking pictures. I wrote this to acknowledge how I was feeling when I had a client complain about my prices and a friend ask how I could be busy if I was not doing a shoot that day. I was 5 shoots in to process and had to do my monthly 2 days of website updating and SEO. I do not allow stuff like that to have real estate in my brain but it was bugging me. Writing this made me laugh and reminds me that you don’t know what you don’t know. Rather than be annoyed I can laugh at this while also genuinely try to educate people.
