Warm blooded getting cold!!
Bitter cold and training a puppy??
Now I know why I love my reptiles so much!!! In Minnesota, I need to keep the cold blooded cozy warm, like I like to be!!
AHHHHH doesn't it look warm under the light, in the blanket??
Not so fun going out for potty morning, noon, and night.
Not so fun holding the door open, while Nala decides when she is going to leave.
Not a blast getting up every morning at 4 AM to let the cat out AND hold the door open so she can sniff the air. You may wonder, why do you indulge her K~?? Because she relentlessly scratches the closet door and meows until you do!
Some are just easier then others :-)

I know it sounds funny to "freak out" over crafts. Isn't that supposed to relax you and calm you down!! Not me. David needed me to make this bunny he saw in a magazine. "Your you finished with the bunny yet?" became the mantra for 2 days. He would bring me the stuffing, the yarn, the magazine over and over again. So added to my list, is this bunny. I personally think it came out ok (no pattern, just a photo), but the one in the magazine (where you can order a pattern!!!!) is much cuter!

I have been working on getting some of my crafting projects done. I have 1 October gift that I am for my sister that I have quite literally ripped up part of at least 25 times!!! It is a new knitting pattern, and one I must not be able to do in the din of my house! Then there is the 2 book marks that I am doing for Christmas presents. I am over 1/2 done on one and 1/4 done on the other. Then there is the birthday gift due in early early February!! I have 4 rows done on that. Let's see. I have a mommy and a baby gift to get done for a friend that had a baby in late December. And then there are the doggy sweaters that my vet fell in love with and wants me to sell at the clinic. I have another visit there in a month with Bing! Here is his sweater that I did. It is Cora's design. K~

Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Indolence, 1756-1757
His Indolence, showing a lazy servant, is a humorous--but no less moralizing.
2 dictionary definitions:
** in·do·lence n. Habitual laziness; sloth.
** indolence n. inactivity resulting from a dislike of work
This Painting was at the MIA. When Marsha, Marilee and I went to the exhibit. WOW!!! it spoke to me. The write up next to the painting said, that "the woman was lazy and kept a messy house. But, actually, was probably suffering from morning sickness." I absolutely LOVE the orange shoe. Her expression is so real. I have not been moved by a painting the way that this one has moved me, in quite awhile.
