In case you were wondering....

Daisy's settling in just fine.

All chairs are created equal...

in the eye of a puppy.



Good thing the baby wasn't in there when she jumped in.


Though one with company is really best.

Why yes, we have taken leave of our senses

After Brisco died Craig and I outlined some criteria for our next dog.

1. adult only, no puppies
2. medium to large in size
3. in a foster home so it might know a little something about family life

This is none of those:


But she's ours. Her name is Daisy.


She's a little stray a friend found. She's very sweet and snuggly and pretty smart.


Yes, I'm a sucker.

Tree and a Cricket

It was time to plant a tree for The Bug, so we headed out to Chambersville Tree Farm Friday with Craig's dad.


He works out there and helped us pick out a lovely Desert Willow 'Bubba' for the front of the house. (A couple of rose bushes may have also snuck their way into the truck.) Thanks, Clint!


All the sunshine and fresh air must have been too much for Big I.


But when we got home there was a package at the door. I found a super good deal on a little Cricket loom a few weeks ago. I thought it might be fun to let people borrow or for the boys if they wanted to try some time. Oh boy! it had arrived.

I gave it a coat of paint right away and then to my surprise Big I declared he wanted to make a scarf 'All by myself!'. He decided it would be a scarf for Daddy.

So we picked some colors and warped it up. And to my great astonishment, he went to town. (The nap must have helped.)


Daddy even got in on the action.

And not to be outdone...


P.S. The new tree also made it into the ground, but it was late and there was no light. Perhaps photos later.
