The day Happy tackled the sea monster ...

Yesterday something funny happened.
I had put the suction cleaner into the pool the evening before (for the first time this season). In the morning, next day, first time outside, the dogs noticed this thing in the pool, and it made this weird sound - tock-tock-tock, which puzzled them a little.
August 17-10
After circling the pool several times, and watching the monster in the water for a while, Happy let out a whiny squeak, and jumped into the pool. He grabbed the hose of the cleaner and dragged it out of the pool! :o) Awe, my brave little guy!
August 16-6
He was very proud of himself afterwards.

There was also a wonderful sky.
August 17-1
The humid weather was broken by a thunder storm the day before, and we had a nice summer breeze going, it was just a lovely day.
I haven't cast on for something new to knit, but I did get some spinning done. I can't decide what to do next, so I dug out my Surrounded blanket, but have not knit a stitch on it. I left out a lot of sock yarn, thinking socks would be the best thing to knit while waiting for the renos to get done, but I don't feel like knitting socks at all right now.

Was ein unheimliches Monster *lol*. Da musste er aber schwer ├╝ber seinen Schatten springen. Mutiger Bube :).

Der Himmel ist atemberaubend. Gewitter reinigt halt die Luft. Bei uns regnet es seit Tagen wie aus Eimern - richtig deprimierend.

LG Susi

Go Happy! Brave guy... :)

And that sky photo is really gorgeous.

I totally understand about the knitting ennui (I guess, for lack of a better word). I'm feeling similarly right now.

How wonderful for Happy to defend you! :) I guess cleanliness is overrated.

Well at least you know if you ever encounter a real sea monster, Happy's got your back!
And if you're not into knitting socks... what are you going to di with all that lovely yarn you just bought?

Heavenly sky and sweet, brave little boy. He does look very proud, don't you think?

Susan said...

Happy! My hero.

Now, if he could only protect you from the renovators.

Beverly said...

Happy the hero! We had a terrible storm yesterday evening but it really cooled things off. Today back to 100.

Good Doggy!

Go Happy - he's so proud! LOL!

We're having similar skies here, and the heat and humidity have blessedly left us for at least this week. Can only hope for longer!
