Great news and summer do's

Before I do anything else,
I've got big news for you.

Great News worthy of some cute little Darla cupcakes....

  We are celebrating because Darla's biopsies came back benign!!!

I am shocked and extremely happy!!

Thank you all so much for your well wishes. 

The cupcake is actually a practice Darla,
  Today, Sally and I are going to make a few dozen and take them to the veterinarian who took such great care of our little girl.  


Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I hope that the weather is nice where you are because it is downright crappy here.
Yesterday was rainy and coooold the whole day.
I can't remember a time when we had our heat on at the end of May.

I spend the day inside.. trying to eliminate some of the chores on my list.

The big boys have their swimsuits on and are ready for summer.
They got their summer haircuts yesterday and it only took me eight hours to do it.

Stymie doesn't mind the clippers..   I think that he likes when I shave him down because afterward, his hair is so fuzzy that we can't keep our hands off of him.

Sharky however...   hates anything to do with grooming.
I have to hand scissor his whole body.

I spent 10 years as a dog groomer ...  
I love doing it,  but hand scissoring a Golden who won't keep still is an exhausting job.
My back is killing me today.

I need to touch up those ears today!

Now... if it is ever warm enough to open the swimming pool...  the boys are ready!

I made another wreath last week.
I stole this idea from one of my bosses at Michael s.
That's the problem with working in a craft store..
the ideas are always flowing.

This  patriotic ribbon wreath was simple to make.

... so simple, that I made it in the comfort of my cozy chair.

I just cut strips of  ( Michael's $1.00) ribbon and tied them around the foam wreath form.

Keep on going until the entire wreath is covered.

you will end up with a pretty little patriotic celebration for your front door.

Have a great Memorial day!!

Don't forget to help those in Oklahoma if you can.

Happy news for your family and your pooch!
I love the wreath...have a fun holiday.

You are up not sure about your weather...but here, still chilly. Swam today...but you no choice. If you just tried to relax in that sat there shivering. Swimming at least works up some warmth!
