I know. Girls should curtsy, but I’ve wanted to captured Gretchen’s beautiful downward facing dog pose for well over a year now, and I was tickled PANK when I realized that when the fur-girls crashed my sock-shoot on Sunday that I’d finally gotten the pose “on film.”
Happy Dogs on Thursday! There’s a fun contest going on over there, so be sure to check it out. My girls don’t do mud, so I doubt we’ll be entering, but it’s a great idea!
It’s also little friday, which is always cause for celebration . This has been one heck of a week, so I’m looking forward to the weekend. Somehow, this week of only a couple of appointments has managed to be draining. I think it’s more because we figured out we couldn’t get to the beach after all, can’t get together with friends because it is shed-building weekend, etc.
It is Thankful Thursday though, so I’m thankful that the beach is waiting for me.
A rare, non-beach photo from OBX. Sissy loves the thicket at the rear of the house. The one plus of NOT getting down there in the dead of beach winter is that with every week we’re delayed, more flora and fauna will be stirring for my big girl to sniff and watch.
Just to tie up loose ends… The Knight made the call on the baby blanket yarn. For starters, Mommy doesn’t like pink, and almost all of my Tofutsies has pink or PANK in there. They LOVE the “pound of acrylic” yellow blanket I made for first baby, so I’ll be making an off-white (I’d call it oatmeal) Serenity. (Ravelry link)
Do I like knitting with acrylic? No. Is it more than a bit ironic that a chief’s wife and former firefighter/instructor herself is knitting an officer’s baby a flammable blankie? Yep. But it’s the best fit for this family, and that’s what matters most. I try really, really hard to match my total project to its recipient, from the fiber selection to the color to the care that item will require, so I’m glad the Knight weighed in on the side of practicality.
Have a beautiful day!
