I know, I know it has been ages since I got one of these typed up. To be honest, I don’t really feel like doing it today, but I will persevere through it, lol.
So Dad is recovering quite nicely from his surgery. I am still mentally & emotionally exhausted, but getting better. For me the last few weeks have been too stressful but I haven’t had any seizures, unless I am having them while I am sleeping which could be happening, so I am quite pleased with myself.
Things between Brenda (girlfriend) & Dad are progressing quite quickly (to quickly in my opinion). Most of that info will be for another post & protected at that. Both Brenda & Dad read this & so there are some things I don’t want them into, lol.
Moving on to the knitting items that I know is why you came here, lol. I have added a new page to the site. It is my Knitting To-Do List. Also on that page will let you know if the commissions are open or not.
So what I have I managed to do these last few weeks?? I finished two commissions & started work on finishing another. Want to see?? Of course you do.
Yep, two more Tiger Lily Cowls. I can say that after making three of them, I am definitely bored & tired of the pattern, lol.
Since I am done with those I have moved on to finishing the Queen Anne Lace shawl #2. When Dad & I were are Barnes & Noble last Friday we lucked into getting a bigger table & so I decided that it was time to take a full picture.
I am sitting here looking at it & realizing that I only have 42 rounds left, but it is at the point where the rounds take forever to get through. I love circular shawls, but I hate the bind off due to the amount of stitches, lol.
Last but not least, I took a sound clip from when we arrived home last night. Remember I always say that we get chewed out by Allie every time we come home? I actually remembered to record it last night. Yes, it is a video, but my finger was over the screen for the most part. No, you don’t get to see my house, lol. But you can here Allie chewing us out for arriving home later than three seconds after we left. This is a normal issue when we get home every night. It is worse & lasts longer if Dad is gone or if we don’t come home every night. I feel the need to tell you that we do leave them home alone for up to two nights. Mind you they are not crated, paper trained, & free fed. Anytime we are not going to be home for two nights, they have extra food, water, & papers put down for them. Their room is the bathroom & hallway. In all they have just about a 6ft x 5 ft room to themselves. They do not wear collars in the house due to I am deathly afraid that they will get them caught & the break away collar won’t break & I will come home to them strangled.There is nothing in the bathroom that they can hurt themselves on. If they somehow do manage to get out of their room there is water & food in the kitchen for them. They are completely safe & our neighbors know that they are there.
She has separation anxiety & Dad is her person. He has to be there or she thinks she is abandoned by him. This is why it is hard when he goes to spend the night away. I get to deal with a mopey, depressed dog that lies on his side of the bed & “hang dogs” looks at the back door waiting for him to get home. It is easier on her when Dad tells her how many nights he is going to be gone. I don’t care what people say, she understand the passing of nights. If he tells her it will be two nights & he doesn’t show up by the third she is worse, more crying, more depressed then she was the first two nights. The best way to think of a Miniature Schnauzer is that they are toddlers in a dog’s body.
