I forgot to post my favorite photo of Ian when he was opening presents...contemplating the one duck going up and the other duck going down. :)
I had to let you know the good news about the injured goose!
Calls had been made to various places to no avail. BUT--someone who lives here has relatives on a farm. They came, captured the goose, brought him to the vet (who said the wing should slowly heal and he should probably be able to fly south for the winter), and they brought him to their farm. He is loving it there and eating well. :) So he has a home if he never wants to leave, but should be able to later on if he wants to. I was soooo happy to hear that. He's safe! Has a permanent home if he needs it. Whoohoo!!
We have had some light rains and drizzles and even brief heavier rains occasionally.
Yet the grass is turning brown. Really need some soaking rain. I water the flowers almost every day and they are still thriving.
Annie is so happy her spinner toy is here and plays with it at least a little while every day.
She is doing okay. Some days she is out more. Some days she sleeps more. (True rest requires the safety of being under the bed.) Since I picked her up and put her on the chair she trusts me less--LOL! I think she just didn't know what I was up to and it was something new, you know. She must not have liked it because since then I haven't been able to get close to being in a position to pick her up...or brush her, even.
But she's out quite often and almost sleeps in her bed near me at night while I watch TV. (She's caught on to the fact I can't get out of the chair quickly and the chair makes noise so she always has warning time to get away--ROFL!) She does love to have me wear her out with string toys, though. Annie seems much more comfortable after a few weeks. She loves her CatTV. We are getting along well. :)
I have slowly been using the baby steps method to get some sewing done. Took me all week to finish these first five liners for myself to try--various sizes, colors, and fabrics. All set for Leah to add the snaps on Tuesday. (She has stronger grip for the fastener than I do.)
Looking forward to a Craft Night as we haven't had one since June. :) I have missed them! I have been spoiled seeing Leah once or twice a week there for a while. That was going to change soon, regardless. But it will be nice to see her another time or two before the approaching McBaby arrival will put an end to craft nights for a while.
Next on the assembly-line are eight purple liners for Leah. (Those are the tops and bottoms lined up for the next step.)
I am thrilled with having more space to move around in the studio now.
Anyways, the guy is driving past on the rider mower. 80 degrees--sun filtered through thin clouds. Annie's napping under the bed. I am still on very low gear, but push myself past the daily tasks to take an extra baby step or two every day on the sewing project. Those small steps do add up. :)
Hope you are having a beautiful day.
Life is good. :) :)
