Swamped

I am so totally swamped at work. Haven't done much else when I get home than walk Penny and read a few blogs before I go to bed. I'm such a boring person. I don't even think I've poked any buy buttons at The Fat Quarter Shop. Kimberly is going to think I've fallen off the face of the earth!

Penny is bored, too. It's too much work dragging leaves and sticks into the house. Better just to lay out on the patio and chew them out there.



I've totally given up on trying to block the staircase to keep her from going upstairs. I just closed all the bedroom doors up there. She makes it game to see how fast she can run the stairs, throw herself at my bedroom door, and then dash down two steps at a time. If we could only bottle her energy!

Good to see you Ms. Penny! If you guys are that bored, then I can send our Limo(She is also a Dachshund!) to your way to keep you a lot busier!! lol
Be careful not to hurt your back Penny!

Vicky, I heared there is a Quilt Shop Hop going on in your area now.
Why don't you just hit a couple of local shops to get some inspirations as well as good motivation? Or are you going to the quilt show at Long Beach later this month?

You are NOT boring - just gotta go to the danged JOB! LOL Jobs DO have a way of getting in the way of playing, don't they?

Please send some of Penny's energy my way. A few weeks ago I spent time cleaning and organizing my sewing/cutting area, that got my mojo back! Commit to 1 hour Sat and Sun, I bet that will help!

She's growing . . I can see it! You're not boring at all. You're drained when you get home and it's perfectly ok to do nothing. When we had a fenced yard, I would stick a pillow out on sunny days and Speck would lay on it for hours in the sun. This picture of Penny reminds me of those days.

Miss Penny has that impish doxie gleam in her eyes that I love so much! She sounds like such fun - except when you're really tired, right? LOL I would love some of her energy too!

Puppy energy, we remember that!We had such fun. She ran me ragged tho. Her picture is on my blog. She is almost 12 now. She is real lazy now. Fern
