Yesterday was a bad day for Taco, he was getting hurt left and right all day.
He tried to jump up on the chair and missed, he landed on his side and whimpered for a good two minutes. Scared him is all.
He wanted down from the chair and I raised my crocheting to let him pass and he jumped his face right into my hand. He has a loose tooth, so I know that really hurt.
He was doing circles in front of the door (The "let me out" dance), I go to open the door and Stitch rushes over and pushes Taco into the moving door. Hurt his right front foot.
I'm sure if he could, he would file "elder doggie abuse" on me! Really an "Off" day!
Today..he acts like he is going to try to sleep through this day. No chance of getting hurt while your sleeping, unless the cat pounces on him! Poor old man!

I know most of yall are still being pounded by rain or snow and most think I am pretty lucky to be in Texas and to be getting spring already. For the most part I would agree, but believe me we are already hitting some problems.
For the last few days it has been gloomy and chilly outside, like it really wanted to rain. Heck it did rain all around us, but here at my house..Nothing. AND yet the grass keeps growing!!
The temps are already starting to climb back up and the fan in the livingroom decided to die and the AC in my bedroom isn't working right. One thing I have learned here in Texas, there is NO happy medium! Okay maybe there is but it only lasts about a week! It's either hot or cold, in a drought or flooded...warm with light showers is a rarity to be treasured. I want some of that!

I forgot to post my last project in crocheting.

It's really hard to tell, but there is a large heart in the center of the bed. I made this for my bf's birthday.

I am currently working on a blanket for my dad, I'm about halfway finished with it.

If you will notice there is a donation button for paypal over on the side panel, it is for a camera fund. I was talked into putting it up there, by a few folks. It's not that I don't already love the cameras I do have, they are both great in thier own ways. It would just be nice if all those features where in just one camera. Soo, I have been drooling over this camera for some time and of course the price of it is soo far out of my range it's pathetic.

Yeah, it sure is purty! I have it on my Christmas list, but the hubs hardly ever pays attention to the list, if he looks at it at all. He is NOT a shopper! LOL!

Sooo, I thought I would give the button a gander, we'll see.

I guess I ought to give yall a little update on some past posts.

Mom and dad didn't kill each other, they stopped talking for a day and now they are both back to normal with some extra umph and gusto at working out some of the issues.

I appreciate all of yall's help with the address labels and placed my order last night. #3 will be "mine" and #10 will be "ours". Between friends, family and awesome bloggers those are the ones with the most votes.

Poor Taco. I hope he DOES get some good sleep and rest today.

The red crochet blanket/bedspread is gorgeous, Heather. I love the color. But, I cannot for the life of me see a heart. Think I'm color blind? My husband is, but I've never been.

I really like your choices in address labels. Since I voted for #3 for you & also liked #10. GREAT choices!

And I'm glad things have calmed down a bit between your mom & dad. Life's too short to fight all the time.

As for Texas weather - you got that right, too. Land of extremes, seems like. One thing that really bothers me now coming back, since I've been away for so long, is the wind! And the low humidity out in west Texas. Here in south Mississippi, it's rarely ever windy at all and high humidity. But, it's great for the skin & my hair does better here, too.

Have a blessed day! & Weekend!

The blanket is fabulous. Do you do something that large in one piece or do you do strips then crochet them together?

@Grace That particular blanket was all one piece. Most of the ones I do, I do in strips.

Truly a dog day for poor Taco.

Such a cheery bright blanket that one is. It must have been really heavy before you were done.

Texas weather? I was in San Antonio for a couple of weeks one July. I hate it when my makeup slides off my face with the perspiration.

I don't know how old Taco is but as for the jump and missing it he may not want to be very active for a while. One good thing he isn't long like Spunky. Spunky gets it in the back and really takes him out for a while. Beautiful crocheting. I don't know how to crochet bur the spreads are beautiful.

Oy,'s hard being a little dog sometimes.

I have that camera!!! I got it when it first came out, Costco had a great deal on it and I couldn't resist! Used the last of my income tax refund last year and just did it and have not regretted it one bit!!! I LOVE it!!!!!!! I'm hoping to get a telephoto lens for it next. :)

Love the blanket!!! Nice job!! That would take me 4 yrs to make!
