I Like #79

Another week of things to like!  

1.  I like that Blue likes playing with other dogs.  We went to the dog park twice this weekend and he had a blast and got on well with everyone.  Unfortunately, he's been upset since then because we don't go every day (EVERY DAY MAMA I WANT TO GO TO THE DOG PARK), and has been backsliding on the door chewing.  Oh well, he's a lovable dork.

2.  I like knitting.  I have spent years saying I DON'T KNIT very loudly to anyone who will listen, but of course my mom taught me to knit many years ago, and recently I decided to go ahead and start knitting again.  My good friend Melody is helping me with some socks.  So far they are just some tiny heels, but they'll grow.  I'm glad to have a small project for carrying around.

3.  I made a new dog bed (the peach one) this week.  This way there can be two in the bedroom in case they both want to sleep in there with me.  It was wonderful to use random materials I had on hand too.

4.  It has been raining and raining and raining here.  I confess to being really tired of it, although we always need the rain.  Anyway, all the rain has made tons of giant mushrooms pop up everywhere!  I can't seem to get good pictures of them, but they're really huge!  And all over the place, even in the yards of people who have very tidy yards!

5.  And one last picture of Blue who managed to sneak onto the bed before I had a chance to make it.  I was in the shower- stepped out to see him.  He knows better, but alas...

Hope you're having a good week, and thanks to LeeAnna for keeping us connected!


  1. A new doggie bed is always nice to have around. I wish we had the rain here.

  2. That's great that Blue is so social. Now if he'd be as good at behaving... ;-)

    Every once in a while I think I should learn to knit, just to have a project that can be on-the-go.

  3. Hi Shannon! Well, dogs will be dogs and test borders and boundaries whenever they can. Blue is sure fitting in well. Come on Mama - take them to the dog park every day! What else are you doing anyway? Work will understand. Happy Thursday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. Can't have enough dog beds! Sometimes when Scout is bored, she wrestles with hers :) Blue seems very happy doens't he? Have a wonderful week!

  5. I love Blue. Are those pillow covers on your bed homemade? They are lovely pops of colour!
