Sheli loves crochet

pf1I accidentally made Shelibean a new toy. I call it a puff because it’s soft and puffy. Last night while trying to design some crochet flowers, there was some that I didn’t like. To keep them together to throw away, I started tying them together. By the time I had added the 3rd flower, a cheerful looking flower ball was formed. I decided it’d be a cute toy to give to Sheli, but he was already in bed asleep, so I’d wait until morning to give it to him. I continued on crocheting flowers and two more of them didn’t turn out right, so I added them to the flower ball.
pf2I really like the look of this flower ball. I think it would make a good bath scrubby if it was made of cotton thread.
I gave Sheli the puff this morning. He chewed on it a bit and then snuggled up to it while laying on his favorite afghan, and took a nap.
When he woke up, we played a bit of fetch with it. I guess it passes the muster of Shelibean’s high standards for quality control. 😉

Here’s a photo of Sheli sitting on my Candy-corn afghan when I first made it last summer. He took such a shine to it that he claimed it before it was a 1/4 of the way finished. I crocheted many of the rows while Sheli sat on it and played or napped. I guess he loves the bright colors.

Sunday it was 70° and would have been a really nice day if the wind hadn’t blown so wild and if the sun had of shined. My hubby mowed up the fallen leaves that were scattered across the yard.  Sheli and I tried to sit for awhile on the porch but the wind gusts were too uncomfortable for us.
Last night it was stormy with thunder, lighting, rain and heavy winds. Part of our region got a coating of ice. We were fortunate that we only got a smidgen of snow. It’s in the low 20’s, overcast and colder than all heck.
Was Sunday’s warm temps only 24 hours ago…
3-3-2014-snwWhile searching my old files I opened my folder for last March out of curiosity about the weather then. As it turns out, our cold weather last year was pretty much like it is this year…

Dear Blogging Buddies,
You may remember my 2013 photos from my ex-blog. I hope you all don’t mind my re-posting them. I enjoy sharing them again so my new blogging buddies can see them too. 🙂

This is all for me at the moment.

I hope you all have a pleasant week.




Few for Friday

Here’s a few miscellaneous things for Friday. 🙂
IMG_7559Yesterday the sun came out for a short period of time.
I hurried and got my camera and took a photo of it.
The sun warmed up the outside to 17°
and teased that there was sunnier times ahead.

IMG_6905I found a dead lady bug in my craft room.
It made me sad. 😦

IMG_6902Our shichi dog named Shelibean has oodles of toys. We’ve spoiled him into thinking that he gets a new toy every time we go to the store .
Well, my husband had a wonderful idea the other day. Instead of buying Sheli new toys every time, we’ll take some of the old toys, wash them and put them in our truck and when we come in from shopping, we’ll give him one of them.
I love this idea. Even though we mostly buy dollar toys, they do tend to pile up. I can hardly wait to see if we can fake Sheli off with the freshly washed old toys…


IMG_6820I’d like to share a bit of a reminder to anyone planning to use canned tuna. You know how on the cans it says ‘May contain bones’, well I opened a can that not only had a bone, but it had a scale too.
I took some pictures and tossed the can and partially made tuna salad away.
I have deliberately blurred out the name of the company since I believe most any brand of tuna could have bones in it.
I just wanted to give a bit of a reminder to pay attention if you open a can of tuna.

Have you ever found a bone or something odd in a package or can of food?

This is all for me at the moment.
I hope you all have a warm & wonderful weekend.
