Yes, more rain and LOTS of thunder so I had to move into a larger room – one that’s big enough for me and 5 dogs to cluster at my feet! If they could all be touching me they’d be happier and that’s when it’s thundering. Just walking across the floor, Moses has to walk so close to me that he steps on my flip flop and nearly sends me to the floor as my foot stays with his 120 pound body and my body keeps going! And that’s on a good day! Ha! When I sit down at the computer, Moses and Toby race to see who gets to lay underneath the desk. And trying to get up to leave the room is pretty funny as well because the dog under the desk wants to be the first one out of the room with me which means there’s some pushing and shoving going on. Telly waits patiently with Dakota and Roxie.
I’ve tried to take some great pictures but they’re so close to me that it’s impossible. I’ll keep trying.
Years ago we fed Dakota a high calorie homemade food called satin balls and I fed her in the pantry so no one else would be tempted to steal it. She has not forgotten because each time she comes to my house she goes to the pantry door, sits down and looks back at me as if to say, “I’m ready to go in and eat now!” So now I feed her Natural Balance in a tube – in the pantry – just for old times’ sake. I know she loves me for it.
On to another subject – a beautiful placemat – a first time project! Ursula sent me this picture of her first placemat and I told her I thought her workmanship was wonderful. What a great use of some multicolor strips. She’s now going to start a rug. Reminds me to get working on my runner.
And speaking of the crops – I know it must be county fair time because I can smell the corn – in the humidity and heat which the corn loves, you can actually smell the corn in the air – true Iowa living. Just ask a farmer.
