it all fits into a quart size baggy and fits into my purse (no comment please on the size of the purse).
I may have some friends come for a couple of days to weed a dandelion patch.
I might go to Taco Tuesday at the Elks.
The Heartbeat Sweater. This is my "at home" knitting. I am done with the front. It was FUN!!! I'm pleased with the way it came out. I am, however, banking on Jill's comment that the slanted sides will straighten out when the pieces all come together. I've started the back, and am ready to do the shoulders.I love the way the piece does start out looking like a heart. I'm knitting the back on the 60" needles again because it is just easier to hold the piece up against me on the longer needles. I'll switch over to the 24" when I start doing the shoulders.
Okay, well this exercise has helped me decide what to take. I do have Sally Melville's Einstein Jacket at Edgar's Place I could work on. And ... the big afghan is coming along for everyone to knit at least one row. Pictures will follow.

Keenen was an owner turn in from Tulsa and fostered by Gayle in Orofina, Idaho. He has since been adopted by Gayle and is a very, very, happy doggie. Thank you Gayle for fostering, and for falling in love with Keenen.
On this home front, A.J. had to have another three teeth removed. He is a mill dog who put in five years without any dental care. He is now 10 and throughout the past five years has had to have 18 teeth removed. The poor baby. He also had to have a mass removed and has 10 stitches on his chest. He must be feeling better because we can't keep him "quiet." In fact, I had to run him up to the vet because he popped one of his stitches in an hour's time. He is such a dear, and we feel so honored to have this "senior" in our family. I would appreciate it if you all would pray that the biospy comes back clear.
In closing ... BICHON BASH AUGUST 25TH. Please tell your adoptive families about this event, as well as anyone you know with a bichon, or a bichon wannabe.
Again, thanks for being such a wonderful team!
I'm sorry I couldn't be with you this past weekend to celebrate your birthday, but duty calls and David worked all weekend. We did have fun the previous weekend though, didn't we? Louie was in prime form and loved sitting in your lap. I know you miss him more than anything and that you love him so very, very much. He misses you too! He is in good hands with us, though, and we love him too. It's cute, whenever we tell him we are going to go visit Grandma, he tilts his little head and lifts his ears, like "really?" He loves visiting with you.
I know you and I have had our many differences, and you have always known which buttons to push to get me going, but I love you all the same. I've spent 56 years trying to find which buttons to push on you, but you still have me beat on that. Mother and daughter relationships can't truly be explained, can they?
I miss you and wish we were closer, but we do have our Sunday evening chats on the phone, at least we have that.
Hope your birthday was fun with the company that came to see you. I thought of you all day.
Love you Mom.
