Charlie!!

This is Charlie,,, My 3-year-old Boxer….  If you know anything about Boxers, you know they are stuck in puppy stage for life… Overly energetic, a bit hyper, statisticians, athletic and of course they think they are somewhere in the top of the hierarchy in the family!  Of course Charlie is all that and more!!!

Charlie, A Girl’s Best Friend!  He hangs out with me every chance he gets.   Sometimes a little to close!!… If I stop to do anything he is laying or sitting at my feet… I would trip and land very awkwardly… But by now,,, I always know he is there and just know how to move so I don’t go flying across the room…

This is Charlie just being an energetic Boxer… Running as fast as he can to me down the path of snow… Hoping I will give him a treat!

I say he is my best friend… But I think he has a lot of “best friends” in our house!  This is “his” cat-his other best friend..She loves him right back…

This morning he was so excited over the new snow and the prospect of digging around in it to find his bones…  He loves the snow!  He would spend all day running through the yard plowing through it with his floppy dog face…

.

Well, That’s my Charlie for now…  So here is to a girl having a faithful best friend!

Sunburst Coaster’s & Snow!

LAST NIGHT… I whipped up three sets of Sunburst Coasters to deliver to a little shop on main street…Alpine Originals has been one of those blessings in our little town for artists and crafter’s.  I have been privileged to sell a surprising amount of my crochet work over the last 2 years!

When I woke up early this morning we had a fresh dusting of snow.. . Now piling up quite nicely!!!  By the end of the week we should have enough for sledding in our front yard… Come on over my precious Grandkids,, Ryan Renee and Eli Mason!

This would be a great day to sit by the fire and crochet…But… I have to work…I have a roast in the crock-pot for later tonight so I can get back to work on my Sunburst Granny Square Blanket…I might need a new warm blanket in this kind of weather!
.
So here’s to a snowy day and crochet!

Winter Wonderland!

Winter Wonderland!

I am so blessed to live in such a beautiful area.  I was born here in this small mountain community and came back to raise my family where I grew up.  It didn’t change much in the 25 years I was away… still only a couple stop lights… friendly people and tons of great outdoor activities.

.

I work for a small Internet company and each day I have the joy of walking to the bank and post office, getting a bit of fresh air and sunshine ( or snow).. occasionally stopping by one of the cute shops in town.  I have a great view of Mt. Shasta from my desk… and almost anywhere I go in town, including home I can soak in the beauty of our area!

So here is to life in God’s country!
