Dogs and Alpacas

Sunday September 17, 2017  Jack has improved slightly on his steroid meds but we have to be very watchful of his activity and keep hoping for the best. I'm knitting a few more projects as fast as I can to have in the Yarn Barn and the place is startign…

Poor dear Jack

Saturday September 16, 2017  It's never easy with older dogs as they age faster than we do.  We've noticed that our labradoodle Jack has been a little weak in the hind end lately. Yesterday he could not get up at all and somehow I got him to the vet. He's…

Shhhh, listen to the quiet!

Tuesday September 12, 2017  I do not care for traffic, I do not care for crowds. I did grow up in the city but my heart has always belonged in the country.  But development doesn't stop for anyone, and I'm seeing signs of growth even in the areas close to…

Monday September 11, 2017   I find that spinning and knitting help me deal with stress.  When the 9-11 tragedy struck 16 years ago, I remember spinning yarn like crazy while I listened to the radio.  Yesterday I knitted as I waited for news of Hurricane Irma and our Florida friends…

Saturday September 9, 2017

Saturday September 9, 2017  Our thoughts and prayers are with all our friends who call Florida home as Hurricane Irma moves toward the coast.  Most have left the state, but some have too many animals and are going to stay. I can't imagine having to make that choice. I'm afraid…
