Still here...!

This is what's been taking up most of my spare time.
A new queen size for our son.....he'll be getting his Master's Degree in December and all he wanted was a new quilt.  I sent it off to the quilting lady yesterday.  Now he can retire the one I made him for HS graduation.
Weather permitting Mikey and I still go on our "sniff" walks and so far we've worn-out one pair of cross trainer!
Poor little babies.....they look tired don't they?
Mikey is up to 65 pounds.....making Big Sister Meg....Little Sister Meg
They're a crazy pair..!

Another "Use'ta" Moment

 Today as I was heading into work and I had another use'ta moment.
It's been 12 years since we moved to the Twelve Acre Wood in the high country of North Carolina and there have been many, many changes. 
This use'ta moment hit me when the radio announced that the temp was 59* and I realized that I was wearing jeggings, a tunic style t-shirt and sandals.
In my old life back in Florida 59* was COLD!!
  I'd be in dress pants and a blouse (tucked in), probably wearing socks with a heavy shoes and of course a sweater, maybe even a coat.  
The kids would be getting off the buses and out of cars looking like Dough Boy children, complete with mittens and hats, so heavily suited up they could hardly move.
Today in Florida it'll be somewhere in the 90's.....
I'll take my 59* and sandals.

Max has laundry..??!!

Yes ....he does..!
Over the last year Max, who is some where around 11 or 12 years old has developed a love of doggie shirts....
It all started when the groomer suggested we buy him a tight shirt instead of a Thunder shirt.
We were going to try the Thunder shirt because he is terrified of storms..
I happened to have a "Harley Davidson" shirt that i bought for another dog.
Sooooo...we tried it...
Not only did the Harley shirt work but Max fell in love with shirts.....
Now he has these two, plus
his camo VIP shirt (Very Important Puppy) and his Harley Shirt... year he may make it to the runway during Fashion Week...

15 minutes later....

When I took the dogs out at 6:40 this morning, Mother Nature was giving us a light cold drizzle...
We came inside and as I was climbing the stairs I noticed it had started to snow and that light drizzle had turned into ice...which was covering the trees, grass, driveway and road....yikes!!
A lot can happen in just a few minutes...!!

It's still snowing......what happened to Spring??

The 12 Acre Woods...

Finally.....Thanks to the MaleChild and his drone, I've got a picture of the 12 Acre Wood.
We own from road to road - from behind the parental units house to the tip.
the parental units, brother and SNL live in the red roof house and we are in the green roof cabin.

Still a little snow on the ground.....we got six inches on Saturday and then on Sunday the sun came out and the melt down began.

What do you do?

When Mother Nature gives you four more inches ...
You make "clean out the refrig" soup and banana walnut read...
All I need is a cup of tea....

11 months and counting

Mikey is almost a year old, 65 pounds and still growing.
And maybe it's time for his own bed.
