I try to exercise about 6 times a week and when the weather is so nice as it has been I like to go outside to do it. I walk/jog (more of the first than the latter) for about an hour and if any of you have been following my blog for some time you will remember that dogs seem to be drawn to me while walking.
I have learned to carry little milk bones in my pocket for them in case I run across one that sees me as a dancing T-bone steak or something. These two are new.
And then there were three......
We picked up Max. He was especially smelly on this day.
I also carry two apples that I have cut in quarters for my other four legged friends..........
If I forget they are sure to let me know as I walk by empty handed.
As I turned the corner somehow I picked up a few more hounds............
Before I walked the next few yards I had seven dogs all around me. A couple of them weren't being friendly to one another and I thought for a moment I might get my leg chewed off. I made it to the next bend in the road though and these two stayed with me all the way home..............
We planned on taking them back to where they met me on my walk but after my shower they were gone.
While in Pennsylvania I went thrift store shopping with Laymie, my daughter in law. I found another stash basket. Oh YES!! I'm sure I can fill it in no time at all.
Every Wednesday there is a farmer's market in Lewisburg, PA that I remember going to when I was a little girl. I took Josh there as he was growing up and now he and Laymie go there with Liam. It hasn't changed much through the years. It's mostly fruits, veggies, fresh meats, bakery items etc... There are a few stands with yard sale sort of things too. My eye caught sight of this toy and I would have paid a small fortune for it. Fortunately it was only $2.
I had this exact toy when I was just a little one. Well maybe not THIS one but one exactly like it! I have very few memories of my childhood (none that I enjoy recalling anyway) so when I come across something that jogs a good feeling or memory I get all excited over it.
Found this bag at a health food shoppe. It's made mostly of recycled materials......
Do you have to be over 40 to remember Dick and Jane? I know someone who would really like to have this bag! (hey Bert) :^)
This post is really getting windy and not one stitchy picture! I hope to finish Guardian very soon.
I can't help myself....I MUST include a picture of my little man here. I miss him so much.
OK so I couldn't stop at just one. Such a beautiful young family.
Thanks for hanging in there....this was a long post, huh?
Have a wonderful week everyone!
