A letter from Lizzie!

If you believe in kindness, thoughtfulness, and love for a pet, then this update is for you.

A few posts ago, I shared a good-bye love letter from Lizzie, our lab of five years.  The letter was written in first person, Lizzie, who wrote to her ‘new family’ sharing a thing or two about her upbringing as well as explaining how and why she needed re-homing.  HERE is that post.

The other day, in the mail  . . . none other than a letter from Lizzie!

Puppy Trainers’ Tools for Knitters

Knitting tools, you ask?  Let’s take each item.  The ceramic bowl in the background is filled with dog treats.  How else does one make one’s pet happy when one wants a bit of knitting time away from the throngs of  pet-dom? (at least, for a little while)   The beautiful biking gloves in the forefront were a recent gift from my hubby as I had been complaining of aches and pains of handling the above-mentioned Ball of Energy.  Walks are now a piece of cake (with the leash no longer rubbing and causing blisters) and are allowing my fingers to stay nimble for stitch work.  Lubriderm has been a staple in our arsenal of beauty supplies for years and years.  (My hands have become brutalized from maintenance of said beastie).  With regular use, I can continue to appreciate the multitude of fibers that weave their way through my fingers.  And the Paddy, you ask?  Does that really need explaining?

These are a few of my Favorite Things

I have always loved coffee tables.  Especially mine.  It sits next to one of my favorite spots in the house, it is beautiful to look at with its stone tiles, it is spacious, and it houses all of my favorite things.  If you look closely you will see one of my trays holding knitting supplies for a current project (project unseen, here), an open Vogue Knitting magazine (key word, open), my favorite coffee mug (albeit, ugly) a watch (a wardrobe staple for years), and… a pooch!  Like I said, I have always loved coffee tables!
