The Girls

So back in July I spent 3 weeks sleeping on the couch, A) because Sassy ended up with an infection in her toe where it blew up bigger then a hot dog, and B) the A/C was broke upstairs and the A/C man couldn't figure out what was wrong with it! (It got to be over 100 up there!) So the first picture is of Sassy when she had her injury. My poor baby! It was once a week to the vet to change the dressing and flush it. They had to put 4 drain holes into her toe! Ouch!

The next picture is when they finally took her bandage off and she wouldn't leave the toe alone! We couldn't put the cone of shame on because she plows right through and we were afraid she would either knock gram over or cut the back of her legs. So I got the soft "donuts" from work or as other's called them her "floaties"

After all that we put them away! They are great to have easier around the house. The furniture was not getting rearranged! Well last Tuesday, Gram ends up at the vet with Jojo with a cut on her neck that was pretty big. We have to wash it and put meds on it. But she has since decided that she is going scratch it with her bag paw when we are not looking so now she's has the "donut" on. We told her had she not laughed at Sassy when she was wearing them she would not have been punished and had to wear it!

Lately it just hasn't stopped! Went to Sunny & Lorraine's Quilt retreat weekend this weekend and had an awesome time we always do! Got a lot accomplished will post them later.

Does anyone know how to make these? I am trying to make a few for the quilt show next weekend and what they had next to them to "make" them doesn't make them. The stain is too dark it's not see through like this red it. Please help!!!

Here are pictures from the trip to MQX! Lynn, Robyn and I made the trip to Providence. Gram stayed home to take dad to the eye dr. since they were dialating his eyes since PJ ended up in the hospital after having a seizure in the parking lot of Dick Beard Chevrolet.

This Orchid is one that I got gram at the Orchid show in Hyannis when I returned from Florida the first time. I met up with Heidi and Peg and we walked around and saw all the Orchids... Wow!
This one is another one of the new ones that I got Gram at the show. In this picture it looks pink but it's actually a red with a deep burgundy throat. A different color I thought rather then the normal pinks and purples and whites.
This is one that has been blooming since xmas and just keeps getting more and more blooms every week.
Another one that is blooming right now. They always seem to bloom when Gram is not around.

This is the last one that is blooming at the moment. It is a light lime green with the pink throat. Very pretty. I will be adding more pictures because more will be coming into bloom soon. The rest of the orchids here all have buds on them that will be blooming soon.

Trip down!

So PJ and I left last tuesday morning to drive to Florida. We did it in 21 hours. But man oh man was I ready to get out of the truck when we got there! Here are a couple pictures from our travels! One is of us on the Tappenzee bridge one is when we got TP degree weather in South Carolina, one of the lovely garage that was going down the road a head of us that PJ was trying to park his truck in, and then when we reached Florida what the temp. was!
