Just finished T-Bone steaks for dinner. Gave Jackie about 6 bites. I SWEAR, I could make that dog do ANYTHING for a bite of steak. I had her SIT. Then I told her to STAY. Then I walked about six steps away and placed a paper plate on the floor. Then I took one bite of my finished steak -- never while we eat -- and I put it on the plate.
She ran over to me.
I quickly picked up the piece of meat so she couldn't get it.
She ran back to where she was and sat her butt down. I told her to STAY again.
Then I put the piece of meat on the paper plate. She just sat there waiting for me to say COME. I didn't make her wait too long, but she did wait for my command. Then she ran over to me and ate her prize. Then I gave her another and another.
I wanted to give her the T-bone, but I was afraid it would splinter and get stuck in her throat.
Let me see, what else did I do today.
I met Phylly at Louie's restaurant where we could barely hear each other without screaming. Whoever built that restaurant didn't want to waste money on acoustics, evidently. It is such a nice place except for that.
After that, I went back to Pearle Vision for the THIRD time to get my new glasses. I am wearing them now, and they keep slipping down my nose like it was a downhill slide. I suppose I will have to go back for the FOURTH time tomorrow. AARRGGHH!!!
Then I noticed that Hobby Lobby was across the street from Pearle Vision.
And then a thought jumped right into my mind: "They carry fabric at Hobby Lobby!"
You won't believe what fabric I purchased. I thought it was absolutely adorable for a pair of shorts or capris with a matching top. I'm going to run and take a picture for you. HOLD ON............
And DON'T LAUGH!
I really LOVE this, and I really am going to wear it.
Hope to have it all done this weekend, but don't hold your breath.
I'm not at all "into frogs", but I love the colors in this, and we do have two ponds on our land. I can be the Crazy Frog Lady of Stonebrook. I've been called worse.
I just got an idea. I could take that frog on the Lily Pad and digitize it. Then I could embroider it onto the solid pink fabric and make a sleeveless top.
By jigs! I'm going to do it! Good thing I always bring my dongle.
WHAT is a dongle? It is a little doohickey that I have to plug into the USB port on my computer so the computer REALIZES that I am not a software thief, and I really did pay thousands of dollars for the embroidery software that I need to digitize this frog.
Enjoy your weekend. Phylly is coming in the morning, and we are going to Hancock's for our ONE MILLIONTH fitting class! We really will have to open our own school one day.
