I will be leaving tomorrow for San Francisco. I'll see everyone (online that is) when I get back. In the mean time here are some small little things from my life.
This ceramic duck reminds me of one that I saw on Doe-C-Doe's blog.
My mom found this for me. There may be another name for it, but I call it an inked embroidery pattern. Vintage of course.
I find 10-cent designer's work so fun that I thought I would try one of my own.
See Adam's lost his head.
His dad gave him his old bowling ball.
I tell you though- I am worried sick about leaving Misty. My friend has nicely offered to watch her for the week. This will save us a bunch of money as kenneling her is around $30 a day- with an extra $5 to walk her. Lucky our cat will be kenneled at the vet.
You see Misty is an expert escape artist.
When we first got her at the shelter they told us she couldn't be off leash. This is because while she was at the shelter she climbed her fenced in area one night (well over 12 feet with a teeny gap at the top) to be with the dog next to her. Yup they found her sleeping next to the other dog. She is that sweet.
Once we left her in Adam's truck and the next thing we know there she is standing there next to us. She pushed open the sliding back window and jumped out.
We have taught her to stay close while we hike in the woods- but she still sometimes refuses to listen. Once on one of our hikes near Mt. Whiteface she decided to keep going. We ran around the top of the mountain for twenty minutes frantically looking for her. She was walking back down with another family.
So I am worried sick. I mean really worried. I really can picture her being let outside and running away, or walking in the woods and taking off, her maybe scratching one of my friend's daughters (Misty is still puppish), or chewing something important or peeing somewhere inside because she never barks to be let out (she is super quiet).
Two of our other pets died in the past six months and I don't think I could lose another. Not her. Keep your fingers crossed for her please.
