Welcome, dear friends. Another weekend is almost behind us. I keep wondering where the time is going. Don't you feel that way, too?
My new foster has been with me for just over two weeks. Her name is Harmonica, but I simply call her Mo, or Mo Mo. She has settled in quite nicely. She is a very laid back seven year old though that very grey face makes her look older. Her ear infection seems to be clearing with the meds, but I'm not sure about her suspected UTI. She has been on meds for about 10 days, but still urinates much more than any female I have had. She is a real sweetie, though, and takes care of her "business" outside. She has her bursts of energy, and then must rest to recover. Here she is just a short time ago on the computer room couch.
Yesterday was a beautiful day weather wise here on Ohio's north coast. I got some much needed yard work done (though of course there is so much more left to do!). We had a cookout over at DSO's and then took his sailboat out. We don't fish, but Jake and a 10 year old named Jordan wanted to fish from the boat, so we motored out past the breakwall. The boys didn't catch any fish (though my son did catch a walleye) but they had a ball trying.
In the far left background is the Lorain, Ohio lighthouse, known as the jewel of the port.
A very belated thank you to Teri over at White Sheep Farm for the give~away she hosted. I got lucky and won these gorgeous red, "dirty" white and blue wools from Wool-n-Wares. A Polly Minnick book was also part of the give~away, but I declined since I already have a copy. Thank you so much, Teri!!!
I sent Robin from over at the Cranky Crow a little something and even though I wanted nothing in return, she sent me these wonderful goodies (and a little Got Wool? magnet that I didn't show.) The little enamelware snippet dish is just too cute and even though she didn't make the sheep, it is very sweet with its cinnamon stick legs. I got the better end of this deal!!! Thanks, Robin :)
Last week I got brave again and took to the skies with my Sweetie (aka Fritz). You are looking down on the east side of Lorain and just above the edge of the wing on the right is the former shipyard where he lives.
Making our final approach to the runway . . .
. . . and getting ready to touch down.
The second flight was a bit less nerve wracking for me, but I have a long way to go before I feel comfortable.
Today's weather is less than ideal. The temp has hovered around 60 degrees all day, it is cloudy, dreary and damp and so I've frittered the day away on the computer. (I hope you don't
waste spend as much time blog surfing as I do ~ I need a 12-step program), done a little hooking, reading, etc. Hopefully I can soon show you the finished eagle mat. It's small so it should be done soon though it should have been done at the end of May. The story of my life . . . a day late and a dollar short.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
