end of the week.

Well, I hate to admit that it was a bit of a lazy day around here today. I don't know why I hate to say that, I have been busy all week, so one "quiet" day shouldn't seem like such a big deal, but with all that needs to be done, I sort of feel guilty taking a day on the slow side. Course, I can't say the same for the cockers.... look at these two, best seat in the house, the warm afternoon sun shining in on them.. maybe they do have the right idea. You can't tell from this photo, but even though the sun was bright, it was very windy and cold outside!!! so, maybe that's why I was just as happy puttering about the house.

Not too sure what is was that caught the attention of these three... more than likely it was a parade of guinea hens in the back yard, but whatever.. they were pretty interested in checking it out!!!

Abbie has had a great week discovering all her new toys that she got for her birthday. She is really beginning to play with things and will sit for a few hours, happily figuring out what each thing will do. This little dog has turned out to be a favorite, and Sadie somehow or another went to the computer and was able to program all sorts of things on it. Including the little dog calling Abbie's name and singing Christmas songs!!!

The day wasn't a total loss... I got my square done that will be entered for next year's Acton Fair quilt. This year's theme was "meet me at the beach". So, I thought a wind surfer would be a good subject. It came out pretty well and I am happy with it. I got the blue ribbon with last year's square so it will be exciting to see what this one will do.

I can't believe it's been a whole week and I haven't even told you all about our "new" dog. I am fostering for cocker rescue again, and picked up a little guy a week ago today. I need to get some photos on him and need to blog his story.. but just haven't taken the time to do so. I also got a little note from Dave at NEADS.. I'm on the list for a puppy and perhaps before Halloween... I have been missing Chester lately, so the idea of a new service puppy make me very happy... I'll keep you posted.
