Lights! Camera! Fast-topic-changing-Friday!

2.jpg Tropical Storm Edouard was a total disappointment ’round here. Austin’s thirsty lawns were only given a sip of water.

However, the storm did drop the temperature about ten degrees.

It was only 95 degrees that day! I tried to stay warm.

This photo is part of my self-portrait project.


img_2427.JPG Gus and Lou (my ex’s Basenjis) are back in Houston now, and I’m left with Ike and Abe.

After four weeks with four dogs, my house is so very still and quiet. (Barkless dogs can still cause commotion, trust me.)


img_2480.JPG I have this new girlfriend named Zelda who frequently visits. She’s half-Basenji, half-Lab.

She looks Lab-ish, no doubt (hello, tongue!), but don’t be fooled. She baroos. She climbs high on to the back of furniture to rest. She hates getting wet. She hunts. She’s way smart.

Oh, she’s a sweet wiggle butt.

These are the Fiber Trends Felt Clogs, knit with Cascade 220.

Totally fun knit.

Details on The Rav.


img_2465.JPG I have to assume that there was something REALLY interesting outside this window while I wasn’t home.

I need to teach the dogs how to work the pull cord.

But the fun doesn’t end there…

He sure set it up to make it look like Ike did it. Sneaky.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I have come to learn that “innocent” Basenji is an oxymoron. If he didn’t do that. He most likely did something else that you just haven’t discovered yet. LOL!

  2. Zelda is adorable!

    Your blinds nearly made me spit my drink onto my keyboard. Went up my nose instead…very funny.

    Nice clogs I’ve often thought about making some. Maybe one day.

  3. WOW- I can only imaging the noise during the blind incident. I love the before and after pics of the clogs, really cool !!

    Zelda must be fascinating, other lab types must not know what to do with her. More on Zelda pls- how does she get along with the boys ?

  4. Hi there,
    I came across your web site a few weeks ago and I am intrigued by your sense of humor and also think you’ve got some of the coolest knitting patterns.
    I’m a new knitter and am ready to take on your Mimi hooded scarf.
    If you like to read, I think you would enjoy reading “A Three Dog Life” by Abigail Thomas. It’s about a woman who goes through great changes in her life, courage, knitting, and her best friends- her dogs.
