Miscellaneous


I haven't been able to think of a blog worthy post, but I thought I would stop in to say hi, and keep you up to date on the latest happenings at the High Road.

Zeus and I are getting along great.  He is getting better with his separation anxiety, and is trying to learn things like playing fetch, touching my keys with his nose, and nodding his head.  The playing fetch and nodding his head is just for fun, but I am hoping he will eventually help me find my keys.  He has to earn his keep somehow! He is hogging my quilt in the photo.

I am getting a lot of good advice from the people at work - it is wonderful to work with so many diverse people.  One of them told me that I don't need to get carpet treads for my stairs.  He said that Zeus would learn how to maneuver around various surfaces, and should be all right now.  Which he is.  He also told me I could use a leash that I could tie to a post in the ground.  I think I will eventually get a fence, but the tie-in will be nice until then.  I just need to convince Zeus that being left outside to enjoy the weather is a good thing.

Now I need to learn how to clip his nails.

I received a "save the date" postcard from my daughter's school for her graduation.  I find it hard to believe that she is graduating already.

She is planning on going to graduate school.  For college, she was looking at places as far away as Colorado and New England.  Now, she is reaching even farther to the United Kingdom!  She has also applied to some more local schools (everything else seems local in comparison).

And if those things didn't make me feel old enough, I received a letter from a hospital, that, because I was a mature woman, I could attend a class about menopause.

The snow has melted, and the mud has dried.  The birds are chirping, and more people are out and about.  It is getting colder again though.

I have trimmed the Simply Squares quilt, and it is waiting for binding.  I haven't been able to find a fabric that goes well with it, so I might have to go shopping, but I wanted to look one more time through the stash to see if if the fabric I need isn't hiding somewhere in there.

You don't need a class for menopause, it just happens.

I laughed out loud when I read about the class about menopause. And then I laughed again when I read Gari's comment. I do wish someone would let me know when I can STOP going through menopause.

I'm glad the pup is doing well!
It's hard to ignore the dirt and dog hair, but I force myself so some quilting can occur -
after all, the queen hasn't come for tea a long time, lol.
