Spunk!


George has a bit of spunk today and that is very refreshing! While he still ate only half of breakfast, his attitude is greatly improved. We're going to do some "winter yardwork" this afternoon and I'd say he'll be out there wanting to help. Amber is happy to have him perky again, too, so I am looking forward to seeing them romp.
The trick-or-treators come on Monday and this neighborhood usually gets a lot; he really enjoys them and the constant onslaught of kids tramping up and down our stairs and ringing our doorbell drives Amber INSANE while George just wants to be fulfill his usual role of "Welcoming Committee". In years past I have been very bah-humbug about the whole thing, but last year the kids were polite - not rude as I have experienced in years before - and now that I have friends in the neighborhood with kids, I look forward to having them come! Plus I can dump extra goodies in their bags and spoil them all the more! Yes, for the first time, I think I am actually looking forward to Halloween. Weird.

Today there is a surprise birthday party for a very special lady! She is 80 years old, but you'd never know it when you met her! Congratulations and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Peggy! Peggy is the Grandma of Trevor, Art's half brother, the brother I think most resembles him. Art is the oldest and Trevor is like 18 or 19 years younger. They look amazingly alike. Peggy and I became friends when she adopted Henry, the sweeted Yorkshire Terrier I've ever met. Peggy and Henry came to my classes in Lake Forest Park when I was teaching for Canine Behavior Center . She and Henry did very well! Henry is the coolest Yorkie - they are quite a team!
Happy Birthday, Peggy!

In knitting news, I worked on the Flower Basket Shawl last night and it is going so much better now that I am using lots of stitch markers to keep myself from getting confused. I think the fact that I knit while watching TV was definitely interfering with my concentration.... I figure I am about half way done. I am quite pleased and it is very pretty!

I managed to add links to the sidebar. I figured it out, after reading the help and studying all those lines of code and screwing everything up once or twice. I give all the credit to my Dad; he was a computer genius. He passed away back in '92, but whatever computer capabilities I have today, came from his gene pool. Thanks, Dad! I Love You!

Hi! Thanks for visiting and viewing my Cable Eight. I came to visit you and LOVE the basketweave! I did a scarf a few years back with typical worsted weight, but your bulky chenille gives it a whole new meaning. LOVELY!
