The greyhound hat that I made:
raised $75 for the hounds at the picnic auction! Ava’s probably secretly relieved that the big fella didn’t have to bring it back home. On a related note, Rufus turns to stone when we put a coat on him. I got Sabrina’s (like new) winter coat to try it on for size and he almost fell on his side, he was so rigid. The other morning, the big fella took them out for a walk in the early morning chill and he put Apollo’s winter coat on him. Rufie wouldn’t pee until the coat had been removed. Hilarious.
Yeah, that winter weather is going to be a shock for this Alabama boy.
We had a nice quiet weekend; lots of relaxation for the hounds and I managed to get a little knitting done.
I would have liked to try a recipe or two from my new cookbooks, but I ran out of time. Ugh.
Here’s a shot of Rufie’s left-turn ears:
Not to be outdone:
I hope I can get this pair of socks finished before too long. I started them in April. And I still have one pair of socks that I started on our vacation LAST YEAR – September 30th. That’s incomprehensible to me. I will work on them next. I picked up some cute patterns and books when I had my quick trip to Vancouver in July and want to do some more knitting. Just to find the time.
