Woohoo! It’s little friday, which means Happy Dogs on Thursday, and Thankful Thursday!
Since I’m in the doghouse, I’ll throw the girls a bone and urge you to visit their post for the day. I must be doing something right if Gretchen gets all knotted up when she can’t post THEIR appreciation fast enough! (Sis is grateful too, but she’s cool with just having me email the givers and say how much we all appreciate the gifts…) They also let you know what yesterday’s mystery photo really is.
We bought Sis a special gift last weekend too, but I notice even dear Gretchie didn’t bother to mention it in their post. You see, Sis seems to simply be unable to stay out of the trash in the bathroom. She doesn’t bother the kitchen trash, and only lifts a rare piece from the trash can in the living room, so we gave in and bought a covered can for the bathroom. I’m not very excited about it either. It’s big and boring, but it’s the one the Knight and I thought mostly like to dissuade Sis… Hopefully, it will work.
When Sis and I got home from the vet Monday night, I had a surprise waiting. The Knight had decided I needed a spinning chair. With a little help from Barbara at Stony Mountain Fibers and Neighbor Guy, he bought the Ashford chair, and then assembled and stained it while we were out.
He also bought his first fiber! I am beside myself delighted. It’s a silk merino, and I have almost 8 ounces of it.
Of course, I started spinning it right away.
Why yes, you do see at least part of a dog in most of my photos. That’s life in the woods, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Thankful Thursday? I’m so blessed to have a husband who understands and supports my hobbies.
Now, does anyone have a secret way to download a host of photos off my Blackberry to Flickr? I swear someone told me once you could upload (?!) directly to Flickr on the phone, but… Generally, with a single photo or two, I email them to myself…
