Dogs on Thursday

It looks like some digging has been going on today. I know two boys who are in big trouble with daddy.
Their playing got a little out of hand after the pictures were taken. I had to separate them. Hutch holds a grudge too, so I have to make sure he is not going after Starsky later.

Yesterday it was cold and rainy so I left them in the utility room while I ran some errands. I like to give them treats when they have to do something I know they don't want to. Well, Hutch just sat there and looked at the treats by his feet. He would not even take the one I was giving him. Starsky gobbled up all of his treats and then ate the others while Hutch just watched. Those are my feet in the last picture. They like to put on a show for me, chase and play fight. It can be a little dangerous for the spectators. I have to keep telling them that I am not base.

Tuesday night knitting

We had a huge crowd last night. I had to stand on a chair to get in as many people as I could. There were socks being knit, gloves, baby sweaters, blanket squares and a little spinning was going on at the end of the table. The best news of the evening was the elevenA (aka Ila) got engaged!

We had a couple girls with us too.

Here she is showing us her beautiful ring.

Should a person post on a blog when they can't sleep? Probably not, but here I go anyway.

Well I have been quiet, if you have not figured it out yet I am only quiet when I don't have much good to say. I am going to grasp for some straws here and see if I can come up with anything remotely interesting to tell you. Let's see, Monday and Tuesday were bad, Wednesday was better, today a little better. One of the biggest gift and card holidays is upon us, Valentine's Day. I read that an estimated one billion cards are sent on Valentine's Day. OMG that is a lot of money, ink, paper, stamps, gas, and trees. It states here that 189 million stems of roses are sold in the U.S. on Valentine's Day. Most roses are bought by the dozen, so that would be 15,750,000 dozens. Lets say that you find a good deal and a dozen roses only cost $19.99
that would be $314,842,500 spent on roses alone. That is just way too much math for me to think about right now. I don't even want to do the math for the amount spent on cards. That would probably just make me sick. I am not against Valentine's Day it is a racket though. Be kind and show your loved ones how you feel more than just on this day. All the sap can be nice but the pressure to go overboard is ridiculous. I will admit that I am not a sappy kind of girl, give me a shoot'em up or a horror movie any day over a chick flick. All that said, John and I will go to a Hallmark store tomorrow and pick a Valentine out for each other, read it and put it back on the shelf. If any roses are ever involved they better be in a pot and ready to be planted. That way I can enjoy them for years to come instead of about a week.

On the knitting front I have pulled out a very old (over 12 months) UFO. A baby blanket for a dear friend. Her baby is a year old this month. My friend's birthday is in March so I promise to have it finished and sent in time for her birthday.
I finished the baby gator for Eli. He is very happy with it. The eyes are very cool. A picture before the eyes were added and after.

Dogs on Thursday

I was finally able to get some pictures of the boys being calm. The ceder chest in front of the window is Hutch's favorite place to sit. In the pictures at the bottom they are hoping daddy will give them something off of his plate.

Don't pay any attention to the laundry on the couch, pretend that it is not there. Please.
