Yesterday I took Curly outside on leash, otherwise he'd take off and would be just to hard for me to catch. Our new outside dog, Blue, was here of course. He has a wonderful disposition and stays up around the house so well. If he wanders any, it must be at night when we are asleep. Due to his size and build though I don't worry about him running into any coyotes, for he could certainly take them on. I posted one of the pictures on FB telling family and friends and two family members say he looks like he has blue heeler in him and coon dog traits. One sister in law said he looked iike her Tucker who is a Blue Tick Coon dog. What ever that is, *smiles*. Anyway I wanted to share them here with my blogging friends too.
Blue guarding the door and Curly wanting him to play. lol you can see how Curly's tail curls up over his back real well and lets his hind-end show!
This shows Blue's size well and his all blue=white tail. I have no idea what he weighs, but I do know it's a lot and he is strong.
My daughter in law shared a new picture of her and the kids so I wanted to share it here. Eli looks just like my son Cliff at that age and Madison looks so much like her beautiful mom Valarie. They are growing up to fast!
Maybe one day soon they'll share a picture of Cliff and the kids *smile*
JD is off today and running around. It says it is 63 outside, but I am cold. The wind is blowing pretty hard though and that always makes it feel colder than it is. Not to sure what the rest of the day holds for me. I am working on a prayer shawl that I'm doing with string and using the filet stitch to put a rose on it with the crocheting. I can see it's going to be really lovely. Not sure when I'll finish it, just working on it bits at a time each day. The pattern is beginning to show up though so it makes me anixous to get it done. If any of you my friends would love a shawl just let me know. I love making them and they need homes. Just tell me in the comments if you'd like one. I'll get a picture of this one when I finish it. It doesn't have to be a prayer shawl either. There are some lovely ones that aren't and I would love to make them too.
That about covers the news in my world for today, well at least so far. Let me leave you with this......
DOING WHAT'S RIGHT
HAPPINESS OR SUCCESS
Life has not taught me to expect nothing, but she hastaught me not to expect success to be the inevitable resure of my endevors.
