Too Cool!

As a long time lover of corded poodles – and the second person in modern times to have corded one, I loved seeing this…

Something completely different

David Taylor’s quilts!

Following The FlyLady’s Flight Plan for Friday, I decluttered my purse. And found a treasure, a raffle ticket from The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. Since the drawing is long over, the treasure was a note on the back of the ticket. Sally at the Window.

It’s as though he paints with fabric. It is incredible to see his quilting up close and personal. Check out his gallery. You can click on each photo to see a more detailed image.

Here’s the photo I mentioned a few days back…

Time, time

Where does it go? My good intentions can be found right along side. I suppose working five days a week (last week six days) and three out of five weekends filled with dog shows could be the time-theft culprit. I could go on….and on and on…wasting time. I considered sharing a bullet list of the things I intended to do and did. Such a list would make me feel better, surely bore you, never mind the time to make it.

I am almost done with my Library of Memories organization and tagging of digital photos. This is a class I’ve taken three times in the last three years. Stacy lets alumni retake it for free. Each year things get tweaked and adjusted, keeping up with modern technology. The crux of this not-so-much-a-bullet is the next step will be updating the galleries and pedigree pages. I’m really excited to get going on this, which I’ve talked about for ??? years.

The current brain teaser I’m working through is getting the Twin Cities Lhasa Apso Club’s website functional, via its domain name. Think I now understand the problem and want to have my part of the project done this weekend. If what I think is the problem isn’t, then I’ve found a friend that can help me ‘at the computer’.

A couple of months ago Shannon, my nail lady, mentioned Fly Lady. It might sound lame, but she’s really helped me. I like her motto:

You are not behind! I don’t want you to try to catch up; I just want you to jump in where we are. O.K.?

Gawd, I’ve probably just managed an cyber-faux-paux. If I use her cartoon, with her link, on a blog post, does that mean I’ve violated ‘all rights reserved’? I’m singing her praises. Does that count?

Before I trek down the kennel to feed the dogs and go on about my day, here’s a note and photo from Ana The Dog Trainer taken last Friday.
Hey Debby.

Thank you so much for taking such great care of my babies!  They look and smell beautiful.  As soon as we got home they immediately went into the full-on rowdy wrestle-mania mode that they do after baths.  Thanks for making Tatonka’s first experience with grooming a great one.
See you soon.
