This recipe came from one of our employees, Linda U. I can take no credit for this yummy snack!
I cut up a watermelon last Saturday and took the rinds down to the chickens. Hazel made a beeline to the barn and decided she’d like to chew on a watermelon rind, too.
I also made snack mix – it is delicious!
Everything is growing in North Iowa including the pampas grass which is just starting to come up.
Jenny was holding Hazel when she just got too tired to hold her head up so she laid it on the edge of the table – Hazel, that is. Tired puppy!
And here’s a comparison for you – Ernie Joe Mauer and Hazel – ha!
Sunday morning service – the morning after the prom.
I’m working on the wedding quilt and making quite a few of these blocks to use in the border.
Finished these books recently – both were very good!
And I couldn’t resist the new Charm Book by the Moda All-Stars.
Lots of pictures but not much to say.
Talk again soon!
We had a change of plans today. Becky and Jenny couldn’t come and actually Bo went home early so I took Bentley along with me to the care center. I put the leash loop under one of the piano bench legs and made sure I didn’t accidentally stand up. He sat by the piano for over an hour while I played and the residents and their guests sang along or just listened. I remember taking Leo with me one time, too. I know Sam is missing her Leo. Me, too.
It’s a dog day here on the farm! Bentley, the golden retriever, Bo, the Labrador retriever and Mia, the Australian Shepherd are all here plus my three. Nobody would stand still long enough to pose for a decent photo.
Mia is the oldest in the group but probably the most tolerant of Hazel – surprisingly.
Rox is the most unsocial so she didn’t get her picture taken.
Jenny is home from Louisville, KY for a few days and she came to meet Hazel yesterday. She liked her as I knew she would.
Last night I looked down to see that Tammy had moved into Hazel’s little carrier.
Hazel has gotten brave enough to go upstairs and has discovered the loft which is normally Rox’s territory.
Last night about 10 pm I couldn’t find Hazel. I looked everywhere – except upstairs. When I did go upstairs I found her asleep in her crate! She had put herself to bed without me! Is that a good puppy or what?
Hazel has also taken on the role of “prewash” — every dog has that duty at one time or another.
This afternoon I’m going to the Care Center to play piano for the birthday party. Becky and Jenny are coming to keep track of all the dogs. The sitter needs help! Ha!
Mama Kitty has gotten fiercely protective so I haven’t gotten a look at the kittens.
Bo is going home tonite – he’s a pretty good boy but just needs more socialization and people time. Mia and Bentley will go home tomorrow night — and I can relax.
