or it sure looks like it:
Ever since their vet appointment, Apollo has been shedding like crazy! His coat is a lot thicker than Sabrina’s, so I usually do get more off him when brushing, but this is crazy! (He also likes to wander around while I brush him.)
I’ve been super busy with work (mostly Contract #2, but also a little on #1) this week and will continue next week as well. I finished some fingerless mittens:
These are size Large. I found the Noro somewhat annoying to work with on this project. It was nicer to use for a hat. I think because the variations in thickness make the ribbing look sloppy. They’re very warm, though.
Sabrina is still having some trouble with her leg. I think a lot of it is in her head, but some of it is either a pulled muscle or soft tissue injury. We’d slacked off on the Meloxicam, but I think I’ll give her another four-day course and see how she feels. Poor little drama queen.
After working four hours today, I did a bit of baking. I’d been meaning to get some stuff made, but kept running out of time. I made these:
except I didn’t have a small enough round cookie cutter, so I used this rectangular shortbread cutter. They taste pretty good, regardless the shape. I would make them again!
I had planned to make some lemon tarts, but I was getting tired and still needed to get supper going, so I only made the lemon curd. I’ll do the tart shells tomorrow some time.
I made Dauphinoise Potatoes to go with our steak tonight. Sort of an odd pairing, but really good! And it’s easier to make Dauphinoise than it is to make mashed, so why not?!
