The Walking Dead crochet coffee cozies

In anticipation of The Walking Dead season preview, I made a few coffee sleeves to help me through....

one for me...


and a few for some friends......


yep, I think we are ready!  I wonder how many other couples will be glued to their tv sets instead of going out?

Hook and a Book


Nothing like a good book to read when I need a break from crocheting.......

week in review....


All the green stuff in this amazing salad was from our garden....I planted red and green leaf lettuces, romaine and arugula...along with green onions.  It was SO good.  We had another one Sunday night...just added chicken to it.  


Kaela came home from school the other day needing a little hot cocoa and momma time.  It does my heart good that she still seeks me out.....


Getting a little snuggle time in while I knit.  She hates the camera.  As soon as you point it at her, she wakes up.....uncanny!


And trying desperately to get a little affection from Suki.  She misses Leo so much and is enamored of Suki....but she is just too bouncy for her.  Maybe when she gets a little older.


a little mantle and front door bling....



Looking forward to a little time off for Mardi Gras.........

Dog days...and nights!

It seems that I am forever busy of late......I had forgotten how much work young dogs are.   Mojo and Ginger were old and although not lethargic by any means, I now realize, they weren't very active.

They had routines and with 4 people living in the house, they had 16 hands to pet them and lots of additional people coming in and out playing with them.  It wasn't much work for me....

Dean works later now, Matt is in college and Kaela seems to be out of the house more than in it! We no longer have loads of kids coming in and out at random times, creating excitement.    So Osa falls to me, which I love, but I do feel guilty when she is full of energy and I'm exhausted.

This last week, the weather was so nice that I took her to the park after getting home from work. Three times.
It is a 25 minute drive but worth the effort as she gets so much more energy out than mere walking on a leash....

On Monday we met our first corgi at the particular park.   She was a fluffy one and fairly tall.



They hit it off right away and played for quite a while....until someone's tongue was slobbery....



Once we got home, Osa was content to sleep the rest of the day!



Later that evening, I began a Christmas present and she continued in her lullaby, snuggled up to me...



What a happy pooch!

Glasgow walkabout....

I thought it would be nice to share some photos Matt has sent to me via phone.    This first set was taken in and around his campus as he walked everywhere.   I don't really know much else...just thought they were lovely. 

Especially love this selfie as he was excited to finally be able to wear his "cold weather" clothing!



He went on a walking tour of Glasgow the first week there.  He sent me loads of photos but it most photos were taken from a distance using a cell phone so I just posted a few.








Now, THIS is a fountain y'all!  Yes, please!!!!










So far, this is my favorite...I love the green roof!




Oh, and a walking tour included pubs so here is his first "legal" beer.  Drinking age is 18 over there.  Lucky boy!



I asked him to go into a yarn store and get me some soft yarn.   He laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed....and.....then told me I'd have to come over and get THAT myself!

Artful cigar box

I love it when Kaela paints cigar boxes.....check this one out....the colors are even more vibrant in person but you get the idea.




Of course, I tried hard to steal it but she kept taking it back.......sigh.
