My drive home today was so beautiful. It has been pretty chilly here the past few night and days and it sure has made the leaves turn prettier. Right now is the most perfect time in Autumn here in Tennessee.
Sunday I did alot of art and finished up several deco books and I am working on some postcards for a swap. I have a few details on a quilt art block before it goes into the mail in a few days.
Mondays are always my come home and lay around night,lol. I never do anything on Mondays as I am just pooped out and my body has to get back into the work routine. By Tuesdays I am feeling much better. I am going to work on a few more Postcards and the Quilt art block this evening while Dancing with the Stars is on. I really feel like Mario is going to win,,but you never know.
So, heres a pic of my big dog, Ranger. I don't think I have shown too many pics of him. He is in the back yard and protects it quite well.
Mr. Ranger is a very old grandfather dog. He is around 13 in people age and 91 in dog years. He is part Mastiff and part "who knows". I have had him since he was a pup. He only weighs around 150 lbs, and his head is the size of a pumpkin, so you see why no one comes in my yard if they don't know him. He is very, very gentle, I have never seen him ever try to hurt anyone or anything, just a sweetie. He has slowed down alot now and in the winter months we have to feed him a little arthritus meds or his hips hurt him and he will let you know that by howling.
I don't know how much longer he will be with us, and its really unusual for dogs this large to live this long. I can't imagine our lifes without him. Daniel babys him the most. He always has fresh hay in his manger and new sand in the summer for his summer cooling pit,,lol. He has truly been a wonderful friend to our family.
Last of all today I would like to send my prayers and Love to my dear friend Annie. She lost her loving and precious Mother on sunday. I just found out about it today! I know most of my blogger friends know Annie as I met several of you by going to her links. I cannot imagine what she is going through and I know the day will come when I will be in her shoes, and it makes me feel sick. I can't imagine my life without my Mom in it. God Bless You Sweet Annie!!!
