A Buddy and a Daisy for Mom

Happy Birthday Mom! 

My mom's birthday was last Wednesday, and I made her tiny versions of her dogs.

A work in progress... They were hand sewn.

I wasn't all that happy with the way Daisy's head closed up, so I decided to put collars on them.

Wet Dog

We decided to drive down to Lake Elsinore and let the dogs swim around for awhile. Crystal's harness is getting a little tight and she could use the exercise. Besides that, I'm going crazy just sitting around the house. 

Being unemployed doesn't suite me well.

Crystal is the worst back seat driver. 
Hot dog breath all in your ear...

Crystal scared me by swimming too far out, as usual. 

Jockeying for position and the tennis ball.

As fun as today was, it resulted in a major sunburn... At my age, I should know better.

On a side note, the lake is not the cleanest lake around...kind of smelly, with a lot of gnats... We'll try Perris next time.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week....

Happy National Gingerbread Day!

What can I say? Gingerbread cupcakes! I couldn't help myself... It was brought to my attention that yesterday was National Donut Day. This piqued my curiousity and I just had to look up what wonderfully silly day today was.... Tomorrow just so happens to be National YoYo Day and National Quick Applesauce Cake Day. I am inspired!

Mom kept me company while I tried these guys out for the first time... She did everything she could to keep me on my toes as

The first part of the day was spent cleaning the sails of our new Hobie Cat... Mister picked it up yesterday and it needs some work. He's super excited about it; he's been sailing since he was eight and is stoked to have a watercraft again. We'll be sanding it down and then painting it. Still trying to decide what colors we want to do. Orange, green and yellow (all sparkly) are currently up for discussion.

It was a beautiful, sunny day, maybe a bit too hot.

Here's my proof that I helped today! Ouch.

Crystal wasn't a big help, as usual. She spent most of her time digging a huge hole in the planter then rolling around in it. Gotta love our brat.

Now, I'm off to watch The Hangover....again. Can't get enough of that movie!

til I manage again.....
