Ok seems as some people have missed me so this I hope will satisfy inquiring minds
On the moving front I still do not have any pictures of the house we are trying to rent
due to owner being sick and the snow indiana got last week when my son was supposed to
look at it.. Since its on a backroad it would have been tricky to get too.. well ….Hmmmm
On the hats I made for my friend I got a little surprise package in the mail the other day
I believe it was monday….
a New Mexico Fluorite…I was so surprised thank you Julie…….Lovely. I love getting surprise packages don’t you all????
On my packing front … this is my cat Lippy so named since she has a white spot on her upper lip but that’s also the one I would expect to be lippy if she was a child.. into or onto everything… see this pic right? can you guess where she is at???????
see the 3 boxes next to it well that’s what she used as a jump start to climb…lol The temp door we put in when my mom moved in so I can put the dogs in the front when her Homehealth or therapists come.. its hard for me to hold both of them back at the same time……
on the crocheting front………….
a bit neater….now… my grand daughter Abby’s afghan,,,,,,,,,,
them I am undecided Caron simply soft has a lavender I love that is just a shade lighter than the purple I am using and also a lighter pink shade… I am undecided whether I should also use those 2 or just repeat now with the colors I have??? What do you all think???
Need some opinions please………..
That’s all for today……..gotta get after my son again about the house … to see it and take pics….
Wish me luck this works out .. except for the 1 bathroom only it sounds perfect…

A while back I introduced my cats now its time to introduce
my 2 dogs
He is a rat terrier –jack russel mix but his temperament is all rat
We got him from the SPCA in 2006 when our airedale terrier
Scooter died.. He was approx 1 year old at the time. I picked him out
and we introduced him to our yorkie that we had at the time
they got along great right away.. never any issues really.. Buddy the
yorkie was mine and barney took to my husband like bees to honey.
He is still that way. My Buddy died in 2008 and we never got another dog
until last year in October.. hubby took Barney to the park to walk with him
and look who followed him home
that’s Bruiser… a mix but unsure what he is.. He is also hubby’s dog but he does
love smooching with me too….
deciding to wrestle on my couch and now pretending to be asleeo cause I am
giving them whatfor……….lol I use regular bedsheets on the couch when its raining out
so if they are a little damp or muddy its easier to clean….the afghan should be folded
laying there.,.. all cushions are off the back and the pillow on the side is somewhere on the floor
oh and if you look close there is one of my husbands socks laying right in front of the couch on the floor. Bruiser loves carrying around socks and shoes but thank heaven he does not chew on them… only Barneys harness and his own……lol
On the moving front 3 boxes of books are packed ……YEAH…..
Have a wonderful start of the week…..Hugs from South Texas ,,,Birgit
