Yesterday I was a dog. Today I’m a dog. Tomorrow I’ll probably still be a dog. Sigh! There’s so little hope for advancement. ~ Charles M. Schulz (1922 – 2000), (Snoopy)

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on Sadie. I’m always amazed how many comments my dog related posts receive. It makes me feel better about my lack of knitting content.

Speaking of lack of knitting content, I’m afraid it’s going to continue for the foreseeable future. I just don’t have much time to knit anymore. I usually have only an hour or two to knit each week, sometimes less.

My Central Park Hoodie has been frogged back again. Kishka sums up my current feelings about this project:

I do have a plan in place to fix this sweater but since spring is here, I’m just hoping to finish it by next winter.

When I have been knitting, I’ve been knitting on my third Log Cabin Blanket:

Sadie continues to settle into my furry family.

Some might even say she’s already spoiled:

I’m discovering new Sadie quirks almost every day. She likes to sleep like this:

Then when I call her name I get this face:

Her visit to the vet revealed that she weights 116 lbs. She should weigh around 80 lbs. Needless to say, we are doing a lot of walking.

The walking is followed by a lot of water drinking:

I caught Kishka sitting like this the other night:

It looks like all she needs is a beer and the remote control.

Feel the fear and do it anyway. ~ Susan Jeffers

Lately, I’ve been quite fond of garter stitch.

Here’s a new scarf:

I’ve also picked up a project that’s hasn’t been seen in almost a year:

Romeo loves his cave:

Kishka was very cooperative during a photo shoot earlier today:

Until she got bored:

Sadly, there has been another murder around here. And this time, there was a witness:

Is there anything lovelier than a summer afternoon?:

Drive by posting.

Just a quick post to show progress on Log Cabin #3:

I owe several people responses to comments/email.  I haven’t forgotten, I just haven’t had a chance to respond.  I will soon, though.

Some feasting, some knitting, some sky pics and a darn cute dog.

It’s almost Friday, so it’s time for the weekly feast:

Appetizer
What is your favorite beverage?
Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi. Sometimes I get a little wild and mix it with grape Kool-Aid.

Soup
Name 3 things that are on your computer desk at home or work.
I don’t have a desk at home, so work it is: stapler, date stamp, calendar.

Salad
On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how honest do you think you are?
8. My mouth often gets me into trouble.

Main Course
If you could change the name of one city in the world, what would you rename it and why?
Another silly question.

Dessert
What stresses you out? What calms you down?
Change stresses me out. I detest change more than I can say. I’m a creature of habit.

Snuggling with a dog calms me down. If I didn’t have dogs, I’m convinced the last two years would have put me in the loony bin.

I’ve put the heel in the first Jellybean sock, but forgot to take a picture of it. Darn CRS!

Log Cabin #3 is taking shape:

Log Cabins always look wonky for the first few rounds. My trust in the pattern is what keeps me going.

I was driving home yesterday and had to pull over to take a picture of the mountains peeking out of the clouds:

And, tonight’s sunset:

It’s been cold here at night (in the 20′s) and I’m back to sharing my bed:

Charlie Brown was right: Happiness is a warm puppy.

Snow, a sock and something new.

This morning, all of the weather reports predicted that snow would begin after sundown. Does this look like ‘after sundown’ to you:

Since I was not expecting snow until after I got home, I ended up with very cold feet:

Max, my snow loving dog, has been eating the snow off the deck:

He’s also been romping with his sister:

That’s not the best picture, but I love how in sync they are: from their tails to their noses.

The first Jellybean sock is coming along nicely:

Log Cabin #3 is taking shape:

I’m looking forward to seeing this one develop.  I think the colors are going to look wonderful.

Almost finished.

I’m working on the border for Log Cabin #2. The next full length shot will be when it’s finished. Here’s a close up of it:

Earlier today, MJ and Felicia helped me pick out the color scheme for Log Cabin #3. Here’s a sneak peek:

I have two Saturday Sky pictures for this week.

This one shows the layer of fog over Colorado Springs this morning:

And, a little later, the prairie and the Peak:
