What we’ve been counting down to…

Today is officially the day – we will bring our new puppy (Tessa) home this afternoon, after the big girls get out from school. I’m both excited for and sort of dreading having a puppy in the house – one thing’s for certain, life is definitely going to change around here. And quickly. Along with […]

Where are they now? 2KCBWDAY4

Today’s topic (2KCBWDAY4) for Knitting and Crochet Blog Week is to talk about a past project and what’s happened to it since it was finished and proudly displayed here on my blog. In my case, I could maybe call this post, “A Tale of Two Hats” – because that’s how many hats I’ve knitted for […]

Becoming Puppy Parents

As the girls have been very assiduously counting down – there’s now only a few days until we bring little puppy Tessa home. Originally we were going to wait until Spring Break had already started, because we didn’t know when Tessa would be ready to leave her first home and her mom. But everything’s going […]

What’s in an acronym anyway…
