Small dogs

So - you own a small dog. You think it's cute when he growls and snarls at a big dog. It's not. You say stupid things like "oh he doesn't know his own size". Well guess what - neither does my big dog. And when your yappy little jack russell starts advancing on my dog, snarling and growling at him, what do you think my dog is going to do? My dog doesn't see some freakin' pipsqueak, he sees another dog challenging him. So he responds in kind. Thanks a lot. Thanks a whole freakin' lot. But, lucky for you, my dog is well trained. I keep him under control. That way, your untrained little yapper doesn't get eaten for lunch. Because guess what - my dog is bigger. Your dog may not know it, my dog may not know it - but that's the reality of the situation. Seriously, dog owners big and small ought to be required to train their dog properly.

Happiness is....

....getting back in shape. Okay - the diet is not so much fun, but it's working, so it's worth it. I'm also walking more and that's always good for me, mentally and physically. I'm feeling good. And my clapotis wrap is almost finished. I just love the color of the yarn and how it feels. I may have to find other things to make with it - Malabrigo Silky Merino. Yummy. I'm knitting with another yummy yarn - Madelintosh DK. I'm trying to think what I could make with it for me! It's a little pricey so enough yarn for an adult sized garment may be more than I want to spend, but it feels so good it's very tempting.

Trying Friday Photos again

This wouldn't work for some reason on Friday - so we're a couple of days late.

Happiness is...

...beautiful weather, getting healthy, taking walks, a clean house (thanks to my hubby). Life is good. I'm struggling a little with motivation at work. The budget is done - so it's like "now what" and I'm not focusing too well all the time. It may be spring fever too!

I think I'll be moving my veggie seedlings to the garden this weekend. I may have to create a new garden space for some. One area I thought I would take over had a rose bush that I though was a goner. Then as I was weeding Sunday, I saw a little sprout. It's alive! That bush has survived weed killer, a fence being put in, being moved and it's still going - so that space can't be had. I've got a lot of peonies ready to pop soon. I hope they don't bloom while I'm away. But I had best head to Home Depot and get some rings to keep the plants up - those blooms get heavy.
