Puppy Love

"Whoever said you can't buy happiness forgot little puppies." ~Gene Hill

It had to happen.........you all warned me. After just a few short months, I'm in love with Pumpkin. There has never been a smarter, sweeter or more enjoyable puppy, ever.......except maybe for yours.


Pumpkin is now almost six months old. She can speak, sit, stay and come 'ere. Emily taught her to roll over, which she does as soon as you get out the "cookies," our name for her treats. Even the hubby is enjoying her. About the only thing that's a little disconcerting for me is, since Emily is Pumpkin's mama, that would make me her......er Grandma. My mom is now great-grandma, whom we have affectionately dubbed, Gigi.

Enough of this silliness.

What with all the waiting at hospital and such, I got a little further on Tim's vest, which I had set aside. It's a nice easy knit without being boring. I also started a crochet project.......but I can't divulge too much about it since certain people may be visiting here.

These little paperclips are just addictive to make. With all the trinkets I have floating around here, it was no problem finding things to decorate them.

Gotta run.....the day is young....wish I were : )

God spelled backward is dog.

Hi Amy, thx for stopping by. Great to hear from you. As far as hot, it is boiling over here. I probably won't get much sleep. Hope your mom is doing okay. You take care and give a hug to Pumpkin. Adorable.

Lovely knit pattern! About jams, I love the taste of freezer jam, I think it definitely tastes better, but I prefer the texture/consistency of cooked jam. Let me know what you think.
Blessings
