I had the spring bug to crochet something colorful… It has been blowing snow here the last couple days and although it is spring,,, It sure hasn’t felt like it!  So,,, An African Flower something was my thought… A Potholder, Pincushion,, or …. A Paperweight!   Yes,  a paperweight will be great… I have a collection of Mt. Shasta River Rocks I collected up above the lake last summer to crochet doily style paperweights… So with hook in hand once again, the experiment began!

River-Rock, Flower-Power Paperweight…

.

I think they turned out so cute!  I will have to make more and at least one for my desk at work where the papers get blown every time they guys crack a window… Of course,,, this one is for Alpine Originals and will be up for sale later today!

.

Here is just a peek of the blowing snow yesterday… it didn’t stick,,, but it was wet and windy… No fun to be outside…

The weekend was coming to a close and  looking back I actually got a lot done!  A little housekeeping… A long walk with Charlie and finished up some crochet projects… Just in time to start the next weeks list of to- do’s!

.

My weekend journey started off Saturday morning with a cup off coffee and of course I used one of my Twisted Stitches Coffee Cozy’s and since we are still celebrating National Crochet Month… Don’t forget to check out the FREE PATTERN by clicking on the pattern tab…

Then I got to work finishing up an adorable Sweet Pea Zig Zag Baby Blanket that I will be delivering to the shop this week… I haven’t done a Ripple Afghan for years, I must say…

I love the way this turned out, some little sweet pea will get to snuggle in very soon!

Then… I got the notice on my weather station… A large storm headed our way on Tuesday… It looked so beautiful outside today, I couldn’t resist and decided to take Charlie for a walk while the weather was nice… A snow storm coming and our little 2 mile loop won’t be much fun to walk later this week,..So we headed out…

Charlie lead the way down the road and around our loop…Of course he had to stop and show me the geese in the field… Next the big decision… Which way to go… To the  Lake or town???

Another stop along the way to check the mountain out…Then back to the house where we looked back one last time to peak at the view of the mountain from the front step…

At the last moment, a quick stop to look up at the pretty cross hanging from the tree and Charlie was all worn out! Back in the house to kick back and take it

easy for the rest of the day

While Charlie took his afternoon nap, I whipped up some Mocha Java Muffins and a cup of tea…

All that and it is the end of the weekend…

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!
