A New Start

So I finally caved and have a new start. Nadia's Secret Garden screamed and screamed!

It will be a while before there are any pictures of my stitching-the first page is about three quarters 3865 (Winter White) and 3756 (Ultra-lite blue) and I am working on 28 count Barely Blue so nothing will show up very well

Doggy Update

The cortizone shot worked wonders and Bella is back to her normal self. We have a prescription for prednizone that just like humans she must finish. This will keep the muscles in her back loose and pain free so that they can heal. So at this point it is NOT a slipped disk, so no xrays or surgery.

Our New Addition

We had to take our dog to the vet today; every time we tried to pick her up she would yelp. It is either pulled muscles in her lower back or get this- a slipped disc! She has had a cortisone shot and is significantly better tonight. She has to go back tomorrow to be checked again.
While at the vet my son noticed they had kittens for adoption but I managed to get out of there without a kitten...but... his sister showed up for a visit, drove him back to the vet and low and behold we have a kitten. This is Snoop:

He is long haired grey and black and very cute and also very vocal and friendly!

Too busy to blog

It has been a while since life has been just a little crazy. I decided to redecorate two rooms- my daughter's and son's former bedrooms that were the regulation teenage disasters. Lindsey has now moved out to her own place and Ryan has taken over the basement. As well, we took down the pool and deck in our backyard. I am certifiable to do it all at once.
So, now the rooms are done, for the most part and here are some pictures

This was Ryan's room that I am now calling the den:

And this is Lindsey's room that I am now calling the spare room:

The pool and deck are down but the yard is a mess- that will be the next project. We got rid of all the resulting waste by hiring a giant bin, parked in the driveway for the weekend- now gone. The added benefit of this was I also got rid of lots of crap from the house as well
