Love your new avatar. .
Sorry to hear of the troubles with your rig, but I suspect Hans will get if figured out. Nice that he is handy that way, as we are not all.
The woodstove in the little house is one of the best things I did when I had this built 30 years ago, and was my nod to a lifelong dream to live in a log cabin.
Not too practical, even to live in the country, for a single mom with two young children. Some may do this, but it was not for me.
I was a town girl, without country skills, and not going to try to learn at that point in my life.
And so, every winter I have my fire and that radiant heat I so love. The rest of the year, I just enjoy looking at that woodstove.
Fire is good, it comforts me and makes me smile..... every single time.

Yep .. Muffin has direct aim .. only once has doo doos gone sideways as he stated before hovering above the hole .. it was like one of those incredible football goals .. still went in ..
I shouted howzat ! and he nearly fell off my finger ..
its funny when he's not quite ready ..
he strains for a second or 2 then stares up at me ..
Ive an Antique Chest in the Lavatory .. used to plonk him there
but wasn't too keen on his regular habit of him being regular ..
so i thought .. if i do doo doos in a particular area why cant he ..
only took 3 attempts and he cottoned on .. same with shaking hands .. although he doesn't do it at the same time .. he'd lose his balance ..
Cant beat a real fire .. in Cottage or Wood ..
Date on the New Forest Picture is incorrect .. taken in August .. Tried to organise myself .. re-labelled many pictures .. made a complete hash of it .. ended up even more disorganised .. Im a lost cause .. toodiloos ...

I believe that, too, Bud.


And....that's hysterical, Lili!

As I read all your posts, covered by a cushy throw...all 4 pups have taken up favorite positions on me & the throw...I feel like I'm wrapped in a burrito of throw and pups! My two and Deb's two little ones love this throw, now sleeping deeply. Snow is flying....we are under blizzard warnings....expect up to one foot or more of snow. Time to drink hot cocoa, build a fire, snuggle in with the pups and Mom and daughter. Evelyn.

That paints a cozy picture, Evelyn.

That storm is headed this way, supposed to be mostly rain, but a bit of snow is predicted.

Yep! Relaxing in my leather recliner, I usually get 1 or 2, my chihuahua and my chubby Pomeranian mix...Mikki and Nikko. Deb's Russell terrier mix, Angel, and our little Pom, Bella Diva ....all 4 are rescues from local Dumb Friends League.

At night,we each have 2 in bed, but, when it starts getting cold, I toss a throw over me on the recliner...I get them all. Not complaining at all. I love all of these snuggly little babies. All 4 are small.....together might make one reasonable size dog.

I enjoy the companionship of people, but, it is hard to deny the unconditional love of these babies! They never disappoint and are always happy to be with us. The feeling is mutual. I will never understand how anyone could harm an animal! Evelyn.

It is sickening to read of the camping family of 6 in Texas, murdered Sunday by a neighbor for no apparent reason....but for, perhaps, what the sociologists would call "contagion" .....from Paris, and other recent and murderous rampages.

Recent transplants from Maine, this was a family of Airstreamers in cwf's WBCCI Unit, known personally by him and others here. Such a senseless tragedy. My heart goes out to them.

Who are these people, so disconnected and disaffected that they will murder strangers, including children. The world is imploding.


Did my first, non-crochet, volunteer work at the hospice center offices yesterday afternoon, which will be a Monday committment for me when I am home.

The volunteer coordinator called me about 15 minutes before I was due there, basically to find out if I was showing up.

I politely told her that showing up is what I do....if I say I will be there, I will be there.

I simply don't do no-shows.

She laughed, said she was just being sure, and wouldn't be concerned about it again.

Not really knowing me, how could she possibly be aware that doing what I say I am going to do is hard wired in me. . Really.....if you are not a person of your word, what are you.

Rain, pouring rain and wind here today, but we really need the rain.....if only it didn't interfere with leaf extraction and removal.

We have had a few winters at this house that I recall, where the snows fell and the ground froze before leaves could be removed...and they weren't then removed til Spring.

Starting another prayer shawl today.... nothing really going on but for watching the news, staying by the fire and out of the rain.

Lily always hunkers down on rainy days. Such a dog of creature comforts she has become. No interest in being wet or cold.

Miss Maggie,
Yes!!! Our dogs have felt the "need" to be close today... A bit of the weather.. And a bit of concern, I am certain.

You know, my Pop told me "son, all a person has of value in this world, what is truly theirs, is their word." Got it.

Every "volunteer" has their own level of "commitment".. Sometimes attending is beyond their control.... But in the latter case I usually get a call letting me know... Sometimes, tho, a supervisor will require a call to volunteers..
I can only speculate their reasons... It quickly becomes obvious those who back up their "word"...

I'm sure your dogs sense your shock, distress and concern for your friends....how could they not.

Maggie, I share your horror over that terrible tragedy! There is such evil in the world! I have not seen the news story you report. I'm sure I will. I'm sure there were many psychopaths around in years past, however, it seems the monsters, radicals have tapped into how to recruit a large majority, via the Internet. Surely, only a true psychopath could do such horrible deeds! It makes one nauseous to see so much evil! Our hearts go out to the victims.

I agree with your philosophy re: a person being good to their word. That appears to be rarer these days. I guess I'm old school, and proud to be! If I give my word, it is my bond!

We got a foot of heavy wet snow, had howling winds all night. Fortunately, we have no place to be today. Not so for many others, who took to the roads this morning, many wrecks reported Metro wide. Trees are bent almost to ground, those had not shed their leaves. We see no damage to them, so hopefully will spring back in the sun! Evelyn.

The readings at Mass this weekend were that God never forsakes us.. Even tho we may not see clearly or at all, he is there. One day we may be shown.. But today, it is eyes of faith that give vision to my soul.. It is dark... But I trust the Light!

French police are knocking down doors, fighting it out and eliminating or gathering up bad guys right and left. Good. Keep it up.


I badly want to go on a rant about that yokel from Hollywood, who is taking up way too much news time with his recent revelation....if you have seen the news at all the past few days, you know exactly who I am talking about.

I will just say this.....Doug, not a violent man by any means, would say "someone needs to knock that man upside the head". And, he would be right. If ever a long since physically grown man was stuck in adolescence, it is him.

There, I said it. I am grossly lacking in compassion and empathy for this man. With all that is truly awful going on in the world. Grow....up....


Running errands this morning, swung by our small, local jeweler, where Doug purchased my few really good pieces....because, they are local, independently and longtime owned, make right there much of what they sell, etc...a fabric of our lives relationship for many years.

My sterling silver, band-of-roses ring...handmade in Greece ...slips around on my finger....the ring is a 6 1/2, cut down from a 7 at the jeweler in Athens, and I am really more of a 6.

They admired it, were very impressed at the price I paid, and openly wished I had bought a handful of them which they would have then purchased from me to resell .....then put a sizer on it in a whip stitch, so the shrinking fingers of the upcoming winter do not see this beautiful and unique ring slipping off into the snow somewhere.

Chatting and friendly and asking after me all the while.

Sweet, and I like.


Maggie

Tolerance is acceptable while one is learning and there is hope of compliance.

Intolerance is really the fault of the one refusing to learn and spitting upon hope.

It is normal for those of us who "hope" to realize there are those who are "hopeless" by their own choice(s). They have no place in a world of hope.....

The problem lies in us thinking we can "change" them... And they know this.. And call us "names"

Sticks and stones..
