While I on vacation this year, I took my Disney ornaments with me to stitch while we were in the car. I took 8 ornaments with me since we were going to be gone 8 days. My goal was to stitch one ornament a day. I almost made it! However, when we were driving from Minneapolis, MN to Sheboygan, WI, the road was so bumpy that I couldn't stitch!!! So I read a trashy novel instead! When I got home, I had to order black and red seed beads for the eyes and buttons. I can't make a french knot so I use beads instead.
Summer Ball is framed!!! I took it to Hobby Lobby with me to look at the framing section. I decided to look in the pre-framed area and found the perfect frame!!! It was on sale for 50% off so the frame cost me $25 and I chose to get a blue mat for it. LOVE IT!!! hanging in my hallway now!!!!!
Brigen brought in a new friend Sunday night. He found a turtle in the yard. Not sure how it got in because we closed in all the holes after Berts incident (see below). He was chewing on it trying to get it open. Poor turtle!! I rescued it and placed it in the yard. Doesn't he look proud of his find????
Doesn't Bert look so sweet and innocent here??? He has been trying to give me a heart attack this past week!!!!
Last Sunday, I was getting ready to leave for my cross stitching group and did a fur baby count to make sure all were ok before I left. Bert wasn't in the house, so I went and looked in the yard. He wasn't there!! I had a heart attack!! I keep calling and looking for him and found nothing. I called my husband 7 times since he was on the golf course and couldn't reach him. I just wanted to know if he had seen him that morning. Bert likes to get up early and go outside to lay under the shed. DH didn't answer his phone, so I called the club to have him call me. He hadn't seen him. I was panicked!!! I walked up all the streets calling his name and still didn't find him. Finally around 5:00 pm, I went outside and called his name again. I heard this faint meow in the woods behind our house. I ran outside and there he was, crawling out of the woods looking scared. He didn't come to me at first and finally when he realized who I was, he came running. I brought him in the house. He went straight to his food and water. Once he was full, he went to find Gibbs for a nap.
Mark and I had to walk the fence line to see where he was getting out. There was a small gap in the gate and concrete that he could fit so we covered it with rocks and fire logs. After we plugged that up, went to lowes to buy some plywood so he couldn't jump OVER the fence near the lower part of our deck. We let him out of the house again. He went straight to that gate and was looking at me when he realized he couldn't get out.
So for the past week, when he goes out and is our for more than an hour, I go look for him. Yes, I am crazy!!!!
