Good ole Missouri weather! If you don’t like it, wait a day or two and it will change! I loved the 73 degree temps and of course I was working outside barefoot!

Barefoot weather on Thursday!

We were surprised at just how bad the wood was inside the old maple. It crumbles easily in your hands.

Hello, my name is Shorty and I am a 5 year old standard doxie. I now live with Katie at her house. See the nice lady in the picture with me? That is Bev and she called my new mom and dad Thursday and told them all about me. See Bev lives about an hour away and she has a friend that manages the pound there and that is where I was. Anyway, she came that day because it had been a long time since she was able too. She has been very ill.  She found out I was on the list to be put to sleep because no one had come to adopt me.  I don’t understand why because I have very good manners. I love to cuddle, and I sing too!  So Bev called and told them all about me and they said I could come live here!

Yes, life is good and I am so happy here too.  I got to go to Springfield yesterday and met some real nice people who gave me a lot of love and cookies too!  Then we went for frozen custard and Katie and I got some!  It was good and I ate mine very quickly!

Please remember if you get a pet to think about those of us in pounds and rescue groups. We make great companions and you just might save a life.

Where is the redo button? Who is hiding it? LOL! We have all had one of those weeks. First we went to look at a friend for Katie Sunday afternoon. Some pics follow. The dog was NOT what we were led to believe she was so that was a bust. Then later that night we lost our hot water and put out a call for our plumber to come out Monday. Later that night we heard a loud noise but thought nothing much of it as it sounded like it was outside. Well, Monday morning we get a call from the city that one of their workers had come past the house and noticed water rushing out the front of the crawl space. So they came out and shut it off and there we were without water. The plumber came by and thought with the temps in the teens that a pipe had burst. A lot of people had frozen and broken pipes and he was swamped. Plus he could not get under the house. More about this at the end of the post. So we ended up going to a motel to spend the night just before the ice and snow hit. It was a slick ride home the next day and by mid afternoon we had water again. But Monday night I started having toothaches that at times even hurt into my ear so now I have to go and have a couple pulled. I only have 13 teeth left and they all need to go so I will do 2 or 3 at a time and soon they will be gone. I am sure I will feel so much better. Anyway on to the pics and I must find that redo button!

I ain’t never seen anything like that!  So after that silliness some stitching!

015

Jack’s latest project.  This is a kit he looked for a very long time.  Finally he found the last one Hobby Lobby had since it had been discontinued.

I am happy to say I am getting back into my stitching.  Inching along  on the Ruth project.  With all that has been going on I just really lost the desire to do any of my hobbies.

0111Here they come to dig out so they can get under the house.  The way it was done was impossible for any but the smallest person to get under there.  With us sitting on a light incline, the way the house was built and all, they had to dig down and put a basement window well thing.  A very small one I might add.  And with the temps, and the ice they could not dig by hand.  They will come back next week to put a bigger basement window well in and fill it all in nicely.  So see ya soon.  God bless.

We are home and had a great time! It was just what we needed.  We visited our friends at their pharmacy.  Here is George the owner laughing at Katie.  She was eating a doggie cookie with her butt in the air.

Here is George and Sue’s daughter Jennifer. She and Katie are best buddies.

A little quality time with Sue. Feels good!  Katie always barks and stands on her hind legs looking out the drive up window everytime someone arrives.  She acts like she owns the place.  The owners doxies used to be there all the time until an inspector forced them to leave them at home.  What a rip off!

This is our very nice room! It was wonderful and so was everyone who worked there including the owners who are good Christian people. You are checked on a couple times a day to make sure you have all you need and all is well. They have plenty of time to talk to you and lots of smiles as well. It was more like staying with family. Katie even got a special bag filled with goodies and they have a nice grassy area to walk your dog with poo bags provided!

Now for some of the fabrics Jack has been buying me and some patterns to. I am down to 4 outfits and of those four two are in tough shape, one is not the proper size and the other is just getting very old and worn out.  These Jack bought for me at Ehlers here in town.

These are reproductions of 1800’s fabrics I bought at a place called FM Store in Springfield. I really enjoy all the fabrics. The dark blue with wheat is a reproduction of a fabric produced in 1860. The other was produced from 1830 to 1870.

The blue calico I got here at Ehlers and the other I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

These are the patterns I bought. I got them from Kathy at Common Sense Patterns Nice looking pull on style dresses easy enough for me to do. She prints them on really good, heavy paper as well and the instructions are easy to understand. I have been sewing for a number of years but I am self taught and never learned to do complicated patterns. I prefer simple styling anyway and easy to put together.

Lastly, here are Craig and Becky Chandler and their dogs. They not only own the place they work their too. Unlike many motel owners and they are such warm, loving and caring people. They are such a joy to talk with as well and the dogs are adorable. Katie and Buddy were flirting. Funny!

So that is most of our trip.  I hope you enjoyed everything.  God bless!
