Well, we sprung forward last weekend. Yes, it is the time of year again when we change our time to “save” daylight. I do not mind falling backwards but springing forward always throws me off my game for a week or two. It is hard to sleep, and my internal clock is all wonky — leaving me rather…. disagreeable.
However, I have had time to complete the Stained GlassSeaglass Cowl – a pattern recently released by Linda Dawkins aka Mamma4Earth on Ravelry. It is a wonderful knit, was a great test-knitting experience, and I hope you will take a look at it…
That would be this week’s Ta-Da!
I am now back on the boot socks. They are, as I noted before, nearly completed. At about 80%, I think they can be completed soon.
I am still spinning the fiber from last week. I have spun up 50% of it already and I cannot wait to ply it!
She is 6 months old, a beautiful black color, and full of energy and love. She came to us through the Schnauzer Love Rescue society after being surrendered by an owner who could no longer take care of her. She took to us and her new siblings (Roxie and Sasha) pretty quickly and was giving excellent hugs in no time…
She loves to run and play and jump. Maci could jump 3 feet off the ground which is no small feet when you’re 12 inches tall. She would greet us every time we came home like we had been away forever and although we only had her for 8 days, she had carved herself out a nice little niche in our family.
This past Saturday, however, we packed her up and drove with her to Corinth, MS to meet her new family. The hand-off was a sad affair. Maci was scared of the parking lot and clung to us looking for reassurance. I am always amazed at the emotion you can see in a schnauzer’s eyes — and I could see that she was scared and confused. But she will be alright — her new family comprises two loving and well schooled schnauzer lovers and 3 brothers waiting at home for her.
We wish her well and miss her enthusiasm in our home…
Long long ago (like in May) our owners took us to the vet and asked that we be put down because they simply didn’t want us anymore. That wonderful vet called the Schnauzer Love Rescue society and we were whisked away in secret on the puppy underground to a wonderful foster family in Memphis, TN. They took us in and got us cleaned up, taught us manners for in the house and how to play and have fun. Slowly we gained weight and our coats became healthy again. Doodles lost her heartworms and Taz his… well, let’s just say his line ends with him. We were wary at first having hopped around so much, but we eventually decided we could be at home here and love these people.
But then on Saturday we went for a car ride and met some nice new people. They had a clean house and a fenced back yard and room in their hearts for two small miniature schnauzers. Resolving ourselves to leave our foster family, we decided this morning that we will adopt these new people… They need us, and we want to go where we are needed. Our fosters will be sad to see us go after such a long time, but they will still have Sasha and Roxie to care for them so we’re not worried. So congratulate us on our final move — because we have found a home!
