I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

Comments Off on Sydney enjoys some Easter egg hunting as only a dog can.
Category: Sydney

I hid some Easter eggs in obvious places on the ground for Syd.
She didn’t get it.
She kept looking at me like, “What am I supposed to do with these? You know I don’t have thumbs, right?”

Then, I hid them in the dining room. These were going to be harder because as you can see, these eggs are camouflaged.

Then, she ate the treat out of this one, but kept pushing the egg around….just in case.

…gotta love her!

TH’s dad was over recently and asked if we were growing dandelions. Growing dandelions? If by that you mean, not mowing them, then yes, we are growing dandelions. Had we thought about it, perhaps we should have harvested them for dandelion soup or at least claimed to have such a plan.

Austin hadn’t had any rain for a long time and then suddenly it rained quite a bit. The weeds were out of control….and TH and I had gotten so used to not mowing the nearly dead native grasses in our “lawn” that we didn’t jump right on the mowing thing when it began to be an issue. Observe.

Some people take pretty pictures in bluebonnets, not us, we take pictures in our weeds. That’s how we roll.

This pic is for Rebecca, who says that TH’s face is shadowed in all the pictures I have framed of him on my desk. She seemed to be caught between the ideas of him being fake or a spy.

Everyone else, don’t worry, we didn’t let the weeds get so out of control that we lost Syd in them. TH mowed right after I took the pics. That is after all, where I draw the line. If you can lose a 65 pound dog in your weeds, you need to mow. :)

Turtle and HH (her husband) came over with their dog Penny. She and Syd got along great. I hadn’t seen Penny since the fall and Turtle told me, “She’s gotten huge.” Observe.

It was great to see Turtle, HH, and Miss Penny AND the Stars won the hockey game that the humans attended. The funniest moment came while I was putting Syd in her crate in the laundry room. I heard, “Bogey incoming!” from TH just as Penny came running around the corner, ears flapping! She’s a cutie!
