Last Friday, Dean and I had a date. You know it was a long week when you don't take a photo together but instead take a photo of your drinks...
We took a day trip in to the aquarium. It had been so long! I took a ton of photos and then realized I'd taken the same ones over and over the past 8 years since moving back. So....I deleted several but kept a few of my favorites...
The "look down" fish. These used to be housed in a giant column-like aquarium but it was destroyed in Katrina. Now it it a wall. It is still nice but I always liked being able to walk around the original...
the seahorses...I adore these interesting creatures.
they have a nursery set up for daddies who are about to POP like this poor fella! hahaha! What a nasty little trick mother nature played on these boys.
Game time! Had to make myself a cozy just for my main team.
The other day Osa "pipped" her ball over the fence. The people behind us have a maze of a veggie garden and don't speak English so I didn't even attempt to go get it. Instead I went to the store and just bought her 2 more because they won't be in stock much longer.
A week later, the blue ball appeared BACK on our side. Needless to say, she is thrilled at having 3 balls to chase!
I've started my annual pet bed making for the local shelter. Osa found them and rolled around in them like a big pig. She was SO happy!
If you want to make some for your own shelter, I have a pattern on my sidebar. Just click on free patterns and scroll through.
I crochet small ones using a giant hook and 3 skeins of yarns. I sew beds for large dogs. One thing I do which saves time is to keep all old pillows and make over sized pillow cases. The local shelter loves them and uses them for their really big or elderly dogs.
Please don't forget these babies this time of year.....concrete is tough anytime of year but very hard on old bones when cold.
