This past week has been pretty hectic. With two adult dogs in our household, I decided to adopt a puppy. Leo is a four-month old Labrador retriever mix, who is full of puppy energy. I had forgotten what it’s like to have a puppy, and a big one at that. The two adult dogs are figuring out how to deal with the new one and it’s going fairly well for the most part. I think we will all be happy when the puppy phase is over.
One great thing about having Leo is that I am now taking a daily walk with him and my Boston terrier, Beans. Our neighbor on the farm next door was kind enough to mow a path for me and the dogs so we can walk on his “farm road” without going out onto the paved road to get there. What nice neighbors we have!
I haven’t pulled a loop in over a week, so I must get back to my I Love My OCD rug now, if I can get Leo to sit still long enough for me to do so. I’m hoping he will become my studio buddy.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the many small parts that make up our lives.
