Zinnias make beautiful cut bouquets for sprucin' up indoors while still leaving the plants loaded with blooms. They'll never miss these. I don't know why I don't grow them more often.
Y'all, you may not have noticed, but I've been fed up with my internet service. Att dial-up is no picnic at best...then it began to take 20-30 minutes to load a web page (no, not kidding), then I lost the ability to reply to yahoo mail, then ravelry messages wouldn't open, then I couldn't download patterns, then, then, well, you get the picture, and then, this week I noticed our bill was $25 dollars more than usual. Then I called. There were charges for services we didn't ask for or want and then, very nicely, I told them Goodman was irate. Now, for no apparent reason, we get more kps every time we sign on. Suddenly, I can do things faster, a lot faster on the what?, the internet. Huh. ;0 Hmm..just sayin'. o.O
I knitted along on these for a while, but they're for cooler weather so I put them away unfinished 'til fall..talk about them later. I've knitted a ton of Scalloped Wave Spa cloths, but I just know you're tired of seein' them here. This week I've been knitting some uninteresting squares for a small throw. If I don't throw them out I'll show you those next time.
I'm enjoying my flowers an awful lot this year.
Oh, btw, would anyone like two Golden Retrievers? This is one-year old, curly haired, Duchess. She likes a nice game of fetch.And she's fast, really fast, just a blur really.
This is her buddy, Duke. He's getting older, but he's a very well-behaved guy. He was a rescue dog just four or five years ago. His coat is very silky. These are not our dogs, we're just keeping them temporarily, trying to find home(s) for them 'cause their owners moved and couldn't take them with them. It'd be great if they could stay together. They're friends.
Truly, these are the dog days of summer. See y'all next week.
