more leftovers

I ate leftovers again today. See?

After lunch, we went to a friend’s house and played games. I love board games and card games and really enjoy that my kids are old enough to play fun ones and still let me play with them!

I also wanted to share this picture of Docker’s grumpy face earlier today. I think all our going out and visiting friends has him antsy. Hopefully he’ll settle down when school starts back up again.

leftovers and serger

A friend invited my family over today for “leftovers brunch”, which, frankly, is a brilliant idea. I didn’t get any photos of the beautiful food, including some nuts roasted with herbs and garlic that I ned to try to make myself. I also didn’t get any photos of the wonderful people who were there. I did get a picture of our dogs playing.

They spent a lot of time running around and chasing each other but didn’t find the tug of war toy until it was almost time to leave. Silly dogs.

As I mentioned, I was planning on getting a serger. Well, yesterday the serger I wanted was Amazon’s deal of the day so I ordered it and it arrived this evening!

Craftsy was having a Black Friday sale on their classes so I signed up for a beginning serger class that someone recommended on Facebook as well as a couple of other classes. I still need to order thread, then I can start watching the videos for the serger class. I am very excited!

Sunday is my shopping day. I start off at the farmer’s market and often then go to a grocery store as well for other things. Today I also went to Target and to the fabric store for a ribbon for my dress for my husband’s work’s holiday party. Because of all of that running around, the dog didn’t get much exercise, so I took him to the dog park where he spent most of his time stalking squirrels.

Not much chasing, just stalking. Needless to say, he is running around the house right now trying to get someone to throw his toy so he can chase it. Silly dog.

hiking with my dog and poncho progress

I hiked this morning with my adorable dog and a friend. Said friend recently upgraded her iPhone. She didn’t even get the X and her phone is giving me serious camera envy. She took this amazing shot of my dog looking majestic. I am leaving this one giant, so you can fully appreciate his majesty.

Isn’t he amazing?

My friend also found a tick walking on him on the ride home and bravely held it in between her fingers until I could pull off the freeway and we could dispose of it. What a good friend.

In knitting news, I have made some progress on the bottom border of my poncho.

I’m pleased with it so far and it has been fun to knit. Talk to me later when it’s feet of stockinette. At least that will be good TV knitting.

no knitting, just puppies

I did knit a bit today but not enough to warrant a new picture. I had one of those days where I ended up scheduling myself back-to-back, which is why there wasn’t much knitting time. I did get to visit my friend’s puppy today. She is now pretty much as big as my dog but about half his weight. That did not stop her from trying to be the boss at times. She’s a feisty little one.

In the end, there was a lot of body language like this.

Pleeeease play with me.
