about the artist

This and That


Here is today’s 3 X 3. This was needle felted, by hand. Am I going to get sick and tired of red. We shall see. I will certainly continue to discover all the ways that I can design a small piece of art. I want it to be fun and no stress.

We were awakened between 4 and 5 this morning by Scooter barking. As you can imagine, I felt like I had been punched in the stomach. It was one year ago this week-end that we had our first burglary. There was no intruder. Scooter had pooped in his bed. We let him stay upstairs on his bed in the family room. When we got up, he had pooped in the living room. Steve took him out for a walk and he did another gigantic poop. We wondered what was going on because he had normal movements for the last few days.

Then, I remembered the box of dog bone biscuits we bought at Costco. They are pretty big biscuits — bigger than we usually get him. Mr C had left them on the floor of my office. Last night when I was down there, he didn’t seem to want to come back upstairs. I thought I should put the biscuits up, where he couldn’t reach them. It turns out, it was like shutting the barn door after the horse got out! There are 40 biscuits to a layer and there were only 10 left when Steve counted them. We have had a big laugh about it all day. Fortunately, he did not get really sick, just felt lethargic all day.

We are looking forward to the return of Downton Abbey on PBS tonight – how about you? Our young priest even used the show in his sermon this morning!

    Our boys love those Costco biscuits but only get 1 A Day! What a mess, huh!
    We also love Downton Abbey – so much so that we are watching ALL of Upstairs Downstairs……missed it when it first came out, as I guess we were too young then! LOL
    The needle felting is very nice. You – get tired of RED? I don’t think so! LOL

    Oh, dear. What a way to start the day:-(. Downtown Abbey? I don’t watch TV but if I did, that would be a program I would watch. Hope you have a very balanced year!

    I am loving your little needle felting bits.
    We keep the dog treats in a drawer, where he can’t get them, but he often sit next to it at stares at it – for a long time, lol

    I was so happy to remember that the new season of Downton Abbey was on. Great program. I watched the last episode again yesterday afternoon on Netflix just to refresh my memory.
    So happy that Scooter is OK. Poor pup….poor you.
