My mom can't come to the blog right now. She's too busy stomping around the house muttering to herself. She spent three days in the Happy Chair stitching away on "The Riddle", and when she looked at her progress this morning she hollered "THAT'S ALL?!!!" and then threw herself down on the bed like a petulant child.
I, for one, think that she did an admirable amount of stitching, especially when you consider that she had to get up every five and a half minutes to let me in/out. The sun kind of peeked around corners this weekend, so I felt the need to maximize my snoozing in sun spots as best I could, and sometimes that meant a little patio time. I tried to tell Mommie Dearest that she could eliminate the whole in/out thing by simply installing a little dog door, but she just looked at me like I was nuts. I suspect that the visions of critters following me in through said dog door was enough to kill the plan on the spot.
I'm pushing the old lady to keep with this project since it's turning out to be a lot lovelier than we had anticipated. The colors on the chart photo really don't do this piece justice. In real life they are rich and very pretty. And since the sentiment that's expressed on this piece is all about GIVING, I'd like to see it finished, framed, and hung before the holidays are upon us.
Speaking of.....I've started my annual letter to Santa Claus. In an effort to be more modest and humble, I think I will only ask for presents that will help me achieve maximum puppy perfectness. I originally thought I'd go for electronics this year....you know, a new laptop, a Kindle, a digital camera, etc., but methinks it would be better to ask for a few treats and toys and be done with it. I don't think I'd mind a little indoor fire hydrant that I could pee on, but Mom's still trying to figure out how to solve the "overspray" issue. Oh well.
Here's hoping that you have a wonderful week. I'm off to finish the laundry in hopes that my mo-ther will cancel my bath appointment over at the PetSmart.
With love from your pal,
