Happiness Is.....

All the fur kids playing nice and relaxing together:


Maddie

Razzy

ChanceMan

Scotchie

Razzy and Maddie have a contentious relationship, so while it's not unusual to see her relaxing near the other 2 boys, relaxing with all 3 of them is a rare sight.  Razzy just can't seem to leave her fluffy tail alone and that is cause for grumbles from Maddie!!

Hey, what are you doing with that darn camera again..............
We had company this week.  Doug - Cliff's brother and his wife Monica came for a visit and it was a nice time.  I fixed dinner and we had great conversation.  Sadly they live on the other side of the state so we don't get to see them often.

I've got an appointment for Cliff to start seeing a local oncologist and we are excited about that as the trip to Spokane was just to much for him at this point.

It's still pretty warm here, wishing the fall chill would take over, I'm ready for it, although I'm not ready for winter, but the weather people tell us that we'll have a warm winter, so I guess there is nothing to worry about the cold or a need for long johns.

Happy Stitches and Hugs,

A Few New Things

A few weeks ago, while I still had the cast on, my Aunt Jean sent me a picture of these beautiful lamps she found at Hobby Lobby.  I fell in love with them.  At that same time I was searching the internet to see if I could find a new coffee table that was smaller and didn't feel like it took up all the floor space in the living room.  Once I found what I wanted I told Cliff that although my birthday wasn't till October, I wanted the coffee table I'd found online and the lamp at Hobby Lobby, he said that was fine.  So I ordered the table, as soon as the cast came off we went to Hobby Lobby and here is what I got for my birthday a month or so early.

My new coffee table with the new table runner I made
and showed a picture of in my last post.

The old coffee table was a bit shorter and 30 inches square, so almost double the width of this one.
I just love this lamp and now all of us have one because my other
Aunt loved it so much that she has one now as well.  It really is pretty.
I've started some embroidery projects that will turn into wall hangings with a Christmas theme for the Aunties.  And I have some projects in the sewing room that are barely begun that I need to pay attention to and do something about.  It's always good to have some projects hanging out waiting for the mood to strike you.

Happy Stitches and Hugs,
