I was going to try to take a picture at the vet today but it’s always such chaos that once again I forgot. I had Becky meet me at the vet office so she could hold on to Telly – who is so strong, I was afraid she’d knock me over. Both dogs have ear infections and Telly was due for her 3 year rabies. I had them weigh Hazel and wouldn’t you know, the picky little eater is overweight at 16.8 lbs! She and I have a lot in common but I don’t think her weight is from beer and chips. Hahaha!!
Because I put her harness on her, Hazel acts like she’s been beaten!
Temps in the mid 30’s today so it melted but didn’t feel very warm. Chickens went outside but not for long. This is the only picture I got outside of Telly and Hazel.
Look at the pots of grass I started just last week! Healthy green grass! And it fulfills my gardening urge in late winter – you should try it. If you’re looking for a small amount of oats, send me the envelope with postage on it and I’ll send you some oats. I had to buy a 50 lb. bag – I’ll never use them up unless I feed the goats and chickens and they’re not real fond of whole oats.
Worked in my sewing room again and I always regret not having a “before” picture but I’m so appalled at the mess, I am ashamed to show you. This area was a one way path with benches, plastic tubs and boxes of stuff – so much stuff that the dogs had to follow me single file to the garage to the left.The ironing board wasn’t even there, that wall was also stacked high with boxes and tubs. Ha! Look at it now!
And this rocking chair was full – it’s just so easy to keep piling things up rather than put them away.
This is the last really messy spot.
Here are today’s Dirty Dozen finishes.
Did I fail to post this in January?
And this from Connie?
January is such a blur to me, I don’t remember.
Regarding Connie’s pincushions – they finish about 3″ x 3″ which is much smaller than potholder size and no, they’re not filled with sand yet. Why would she transport all those heavy little pincushions back to Iowa? Sand is heavy!
Susan Sundermeyer – I don’t have your address or your email address – I got the MOST FUN box from you today but the only address I have is the UPS address on the box and I’d like to send you a proper thank you note!
I have my rows together in pairs and tonite I’m going to sew pairs together – this is so exciting to see it coming together!
Honestly, who can find so much to talk about when not one thing happened today except the trip to the vet? I just got a note from Betty K. who thanked me for posting every day but once spring comes, I won’t have the time. She’s right – I probably won’t. Until then, I’ll talk to you tomorrow!
