I was going to show some other photos of the boys, but look at what surprise we had on Mothers Day! Snow! First snow for Denny!
We were up before 6AM, and when I opened the blinds, I saw the snow, so I grabbed the camera (point and click, which is very slow) and opened the door. The boys ran around the balcony, Denny jumped like a kid goat with all four feet in the air, but of course I didn't catch that. Then they both dug the snow, and licked it off the blanks. They also found a leave, we had quite a storm the day before. Together they ate the leave as pre-breakfast.
It's funny how Happy watches Denny closely and copies him. When I take Denny outside to pee, he always brings something back inside. Happy waits at the door, to stick his nose to Denny's snout, so he can first smell what's there, and then try to grab it.
Now every time HE goes outside, he always looks around to bring something back inside as well. Too funny! He never did that before.
Another NOT so cute thing is, that he watched Denny jump up to see what's on the counter, and suddenly this big white dog stands beside me, watching me prepare their breakfast, with HIS paws ON the counter. Tzz,tzz. bad boy.
By the way, first puppy class went very well, because it didn't happen! When they got there, they told David, that they made a mistake with the date, and that the class starts in a couple of weeks. But he saw the list in her hand, where she said, she tried to call us, and there was only one other puppy registered.
At least there were lots of people who wanted to pet Denny, and he met a black Boxer pup (1o month old). Apparently Denny was a little scared of that one, and hid behind David, even though the Boxer pup was in a down position.
I finished the Frozen Leaves shawl, but that's a different story. So now I knit on the pea green blanket, as long as I like or until I get bored. That's how far I've come with the first skein.
I love the color so much, and the feel of this yarn too. It's like it's felted, and very light. Unfortunately the stitch definition is not so great. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize, after the second repeat I didn't have to look at the chart anymore, and you always know where you are, when you pick it up again, and forgot to take note. This is quite fun to knit, but of course you can't knit a whole blanket in one go, so I was thinking of what to knit next, when I had to move this yarn
out of the way for the millions time. It's been sitting on my desk for over a year I believe. It was a gift, and I wanted to do something special with it, but the right idea would not come. It sat on my scarp paper pile, so I had to move it many times, and the last time was one time to many. So I just grabbed some needles, and cast on. Let's see what we'll get from 342yds of this lovely yarn.
Well, that's enough for a Monday.
BTW- I was chasing Denny yesterday and missed a step down the stairs. Haven't been falling down in quite a while and it's not a nice experience. My ankle hurt for a while, but I could walk. Today I'm feeling my shoulder. Didn't even notice at the time that I banged it into the wall (glad it wasn't my head).
