you can’t handle the cute

First of all, some extreme cuteness, I hope you can handle it:
Friday was a Holiday, so I took Winston to the vet for all his shots and then we went to dog beach. Winston was a little overwhelmed by it all, and I think he was probably not 100% after all the vaccinations (I think he had 3, including a rattlesnake vaccine), so he spent most of the time like this:
That’s my knee his head is resting on. Oh well, it was a beautiful day, and it’s always fun to go there and watch all the dogs running around and having fun. Afterward, we went to the dog wash. Winston is not fond of baths, but we made it through and then went to a dog-friendly place for lunch. He got a lot of compliments for his good behavior.

I’ve also been feverishly working on quilts, and I just might make it in time, thanks to my mom who is helping out by doing all the hand-quilting of one quilt, while I do the other. There may even be pictures in a week or so.

I also thought I’d try coloring some Easter eggs. Here’s what you get when you start out with brown and blue eggs:

I like how the speckles came through on the yellow-y egg. Now I just have to figure out what to do with a dozen hard boiled eggs. I love deviled eggs, but there’s only two of us, I don’t think we can eat 24 deviled eggs.

One last bit of cuteness:

Lucy always has to get involved when I take the camera out.

I’m pretty sure I’m not going to have much time for writing the rest of the week, but I’ll try and post a few photos here and there. Happy Spring!   


  1. Winston is just adorable! Having a dog beach is great for when he is full of beans!

  2. I didn’t know they had rattlesnake innoculations! Hu.
    God bless.

  3. Always a pleasure coming in here to check on you! I can’t remember the last time we talked but I just got back from a week’s vacay ? in Hawaii with my “baby” brother Geoff & his family. They have an adorable 3 month old baby boy (Tyson) that I simply could not resist so flew across the Pacific just to hold him for 8 days. LOL
    Anyway, ran across this site ( ) the other day and it made me think of you. I nearly spent DH’s entire paycheck before I remembered that I really don’t sew that much. 😀
    Maybe you’ve already been there… Either way, it’s wonderful.
    Miss you! Think of you often. 🙂
    Keep in touch!
    hello to the fam.

  4. We can always deal with cuteness.

  5. Thanks for the link to the bistro. We usually go to dog beach when the dog needs a wash, just because the dog wash is so convenient for longhaired dogs (Winston is a cutie). We will definitely check it out next time. Susanne

say something nice...
