Wilson's Homer Boy...AKA Buddy

One day about eleven years ago my husband and I went to check out some yellow lab puppies.  We had every intention of getting a three or four month old puppy, but when we arrived, a sixteen month old yellow lab pulled on our heart strings.   After much debate, we decided on the sixteen month old yellow lab.

He had been raised in a pen and  had never been shown much love or affection.  All he new were the other dogs that were living in his pen,  but he seemed eager to go with us.  When we arrived at our home the newness of our place scared him to death.  He was so afraid of everything and, bless his heart, did not even know his own name.  He spent three days in our spare room, not eating, not drinking, not even going to the bathroom.  We were just about at our wits end and thought we might have to take him back.  We continued to talk to him and finally did coax him out of the spare room and into drinking some water.

He finally began to eat and go out and go to the bathroom, but he was…

Meet Me On Monday 3-19-12

Hello!  It is time for Meet Me On Monday once again.  I link up with Acting Balanced every Monday for this great blog hop.  Every week she post 5 questions and I give my answers here on my blog.  If you would like to join the fun just head on over to Acting Balanced and link up!

Here are this weeks questions:

1. How do you like your eggs?
2. Who is the last person you spoke to on the phone?
3. Do you have a place you keep 'junk' in your home?
4. What is on your 'spring cleaning' list?
5. What blog post have you written recently that you'd like more people to know about?

Here are my answers:

1.  I like my eggs scrambled with a little cheese mixed in, or a cheese     omelet..yum!  Makes me hungry just thinking about it!

2.  The last person I spoke to on the phone was my daughter, Carrie.

3.  I have a great place to keep all my junk, in my "junk room"!  It is the extra bedroom downstairs.  I keep all our summer clothes in there during the winter and winter …

Can you Guess What This Is?

I am calling it a ball cap curtain..It is a curtain to protect the ears!

Recently my husband had surgery to remove a skin cancer that was on  the top of his ear.  He has had several frozen off, but this one was too large so it had to be surgically removed.  His doctor has warned him not to be out in the sun without a hat. That makes perfect sense and should be easy to do, but my husband spends a lot of time in his bass boat fishing, and any type of hat (except his ball cap) flies off when he is speeding down the river to his next honey hole!  He has tried all kind of hats, but always has to take them off before moving from one place to another for fear of loosing them.  Not only is it aggravating to him, but it worries me that he will tire of that aggravation and simply not wear it anymore.   Voila, the "ball cap curtain!"

It really is a simple thing to make, the first one I made was even all the way around but I was afraid that the back would get caught on his collar, I do…

Meet Me On Monday 3-11-12

Again I am joining Acting Balanced for Meet Me On Monday  Every week she asked 5 questions and I answer them here on my blog.  It is great fun and if you would like to join up just head on over to her blog and add your link!

Here are this week's five questions:

1. What are your plans for St. Patrick's Day?
2. What is your favorite room in your house?
3. What 'gadget' do you have that you can't live without?
4. What will your first thought be when you learn that you won a lottery?
5. Other than Acting Balanced and your own, what is your favorite blog to read?

Here are  my answers:

1. For St. Partick's Day I will wear something green to work just to keep from being pinched, but that is about as far as it goes.  I have never been one to   celebrate very much on Saint Patrick's Day.  I leave that to my oldest son, it is one of his favorite days!

2.  When I am in a creative mood ( which is much of the time), nothing is better than my sewing room..the fact that it is al…

Darling Baby Shower Card

Is this not the cutest card ever?   I just had to share with you.   Today my daughter-n-law's co-workers hosted a baby shower for her and my son.  She works in the art department and this card is proof of the talent her co workers possess!  I love the way Harper ( her name  is going to be Harper Miette Headrick) is peeping out over the side of the stroller..and  those big blue eyes!  Just too cute!  Makes me so ready for June to arrive, along with my baby grand, Harper!

Well, that is all, just wanted to share this darling card!

Happy Sewing!

Health, Fun, Sewing Info

This has been a busy week for me.  I would like to let you know that my Nuclear Stress Test came back normal!  That is one thing I can stop worrying about!  I might add that I am certainly glad that I have health insurance.  That test was almost six thousand dollars.  I don't think any medical test should cost that much!  I really don't know how people that have no health insurance benefits can get the medical care they need.  Something has to be done about the cost of medical care in this country!

Yesterday I went to a Cookie Lee show.  I had never seen the Cookie Lee line of jewelry before and they really have some very nice things.  I was amazed at all the different items they had to offer and the prices were very reasonable.  They had a little something for everyone, from young girls to really big pieces of bling!  They had some really cute ankle bracelets and some toe rings that I would have loved in my younger years.  I purchased a necklace (that can be worn…
