Playground Knitting

Jellybean is currently in a…..lets just call it sleep rebellion. And only mommy is allowed to “help” him. So pardon me while I down my second coffee because I’ve been up since 4 am.

We have been spending a lot of time in parks to help him run off his toddler wiggles. And I’ve taken my knitting! God bless Erin Lane bags and their handy snap feature….

I had my Vacation Vanilla Socks clipped right to my belt loop and knit while Jellybean performed play yard acrobatics that made me cringe and smile. I guess this way we both have a little creative time!

Happy Knitting!!

A Dog and His Best Friend

Dex is addicted to his frisbee. But it’s a vehicle through which he gets lots of exercise and stimulation. Which keeps him happy and healthy. So for as many days as we can safely manage in this hot summer we take him for trips to the park in the evening.


The hubs is WAY better at throwing than I, but Dex doesn’t seem to mind. He hauls butt after it every throw near or far. He never mastered the art of slowing down upon approach and has the tendency to face plant or spin out when he bends to pick up the Frisbee at full speed. Even if he loses sight of it he sniffs out his “baby”! I think it’s his best friend.



He always knows where his precious frisbee is at all times. And would sleep with it if we let him, lol. And when he is done fetching at the park he takes his toy and sits at the car and waits for us to take him home.


Subtle right? I think he may be a bit spoiled, we have created a monster!

I hope everyone has a peaceful Sunday! I’m off to get a little knitting done and then on to rehearsal!!

This Dog Can Hunt!

Since the move to the new house we have been taking the dogs to a new park. This park has wide open spaces and lots of fresh air. And most recently a pair of birds have taken up residence in a nearby tree. Chloe has taken quite the interest in them. First we exit the car and she sights her prey…



Then she stalks her prey through the tall grass….


Then she goes on point…(we never trained her to do this. I swear she just started doing it, lol!)



The birds of course HATE her and dive bomb at every turn…





After a few good barks from her and swoops by the birds we happily climb back in the car and go home for a bowl of cool water and belly rubs!



I love this puppy and all her quirks. I know she will never actually catch her birds. But she gets such joy from trying I can’t begrudge her. (I promise I will never let any harm come to her or any birds)
