Windy, chilly and rainy today so it’s a very lazy day. Lots of napping, watching American Pickers, and working on crafty stuff. I bought some extra large t-shirts at the local goodwill (half off of course) to make into t-shirt yarn so I can get me started on those crochet baskets I keep talking about. I’m so stoked that my crafty room is finally coming together! I’ve got my cutting desk, my sewing table, my sewing machine…now I just need to find my sewing machine foot pedal.
I know it’s here somewhere…
While I look for that, you have a restful day.
These kids are taking it to the next level, right? I was working on some knitting and I looked over and saw this.
They made me want to take a nap myself.
I’m still working on my knitting project and it is coming along. It’ll be awhile before I’m done, but it’ll get done.
Enjoying a relaxing day. Hope you are too.
Lola loves to jump around in the water, and she has started taking Toby's ball from him in a game of keep away. Then she decides to take the ball into the water, which isn't a good idea since she can't pick up the ball in the water, she only makes it sink more or she pushes it farther out in the water where I can't get it so then I have to send Toby out in the water to get the ball.
These are chuck-it balls, which aren't cheap, so I want the damn things back.
Look at her dirty face! This is what she's really like:
Don't let that cute little face fool you, she can be a terror.
Lounging around today, working on my knitting project, which, unfortunately, I know I'm not going to complete in time. That bugs me. I have been trying so hard for so long to finish what I start (and in a timely manner) that this is a step back. At least I tried, right?
Hey, has anyone seen these or tried them?
These are gorgeous and I would love to get one but they are SOOOOO very expensive I don't want to have serious buyers remorse. Does anyone have any feedback on these? I'd love to hear it.
I hope your day is restful.
Enjoy your day.
For most of us humans, acceptance, of anything, is so very hard to do. Whether it’s your current job, living situation, romantic life, physical attributes, or traffic issues, we just don’t want to accept things as they are. We are stubborn and fight and resist and pout and just want it to be the way it’s “supposed” to be.
But what we resist, persists.
So I’ve taken a cue from my dogs and have just stopped resisting. Animals are so adaptive, they figure it out quickly and just go with whatever is happening at the moment.
Anna (right) has been without her front right leg for almost 4 years now. The very next day after surgery she was in the backyard playing with Lola. Yes, really. She accepted what the world handed her and added something powerful to it.
So next time instead of resisting, try accepting then adding just one thing, however tiny it may be, and sit back and wait and see what happens. You may be pleasantly surprised.
Enjoy your day.
I have some senior pets, which I think they are the best. People overlook senior pets because they are old; they are not new, and cute, and funny and precocious. But that’s not the point, is it?
With senior pets you know what you’re getting, their size and temperament, and they are not as rambunctious. And most of the time, they’re still cute, right?
