Do you remember making May baskets, filling them with candy and delivering them to friends? I do! We’d take them to our neighbors on the farm and hang it on the door and knock – nobody had a doorbell. If they came to the door before we got back to the car, they got to kiss us! Is that what you remember? And I remember Mom always being disappointed that the May baskets tipped over in the box before we delivered them. I suppose we made paper cones – duh – no wonder they tipped over!
Puppy Update – they are doing so good! I remember when I got them they felt like skin and bones – coat was so wrinkled because they were so skinny. No extra skin now! They have filled out and today returned for puppy shots where I learned all but one of this litter of 7 has been adopted. Oh wow!!!
I’ll be anxious to see Lola and Lindsey going home with their new families. When I arrived at the shelter, people were standing in the lot waiting to pick up their new dogs! It was quite a sight! How does Deb do it – keep track of all those dogs and adoptive families? I am so impressed!
A dead hibiscus shrub is wonderful fun!
What are those things????
What is this place? Doesn’t smell like the house?
They like to be REAL close to me at all times – little Velcro dogs!
Here are some great Dirty Dozens:
Here is my DD – don’t know if I should finish it at this point or use it as a medallion and continue adding to it. I like the red and pink and think it might be pretty sweet on my little cupboard bed. I could treat it as a sampler – I love making blocks!
Is your community slowly resuming business? I think North Iowa will slowly come to life after this weekend – greenhouses are calling to me and I think it’s time to plant up some pots of annuals. It would be a real mood lifter, wouldn’t it?
