Weekly round up

Another week zooms by a week of sunshine and showers! now I know us British are obsessed by the weather but it would actually be nice to have more than 2 dry days before rain returns especially with Wimbledon starting on Monday.

Sunday Vikki and family came over for Father's Day and Ben persuaded me and his Dad to play football. Lord knows what I was thinking, talk about stiff as a board later that day and not helped by Mr T saying I looked like those clips you've seen on you've been framed where some old dear is trying to act young before they have a accident, well at least I didn't fall over and Ben was happy LOL

Hounds are all well and happy (touching wood) and Orin's insurance is sorted and I've registered him at the vets, he has calmed down a bit the last few days. So funny when he's happy he gets so excited he doesn't know what to do LOL. Think Mojo has started to age, he still runs like the wind but spends most of the day sleeping in between walks. Going white suits him I think.

 Elmo and Orin best of buddies
 A girls got to keep warm some how

Doesn't he grow more handsome by the week

When we first moved here there was a cockerel on the garage but Eric decided it would be more fitting to have a greyhound so from a photo of Dill our 2nd greyhound he made the weathervane clever right, anyway a little chaffinch has sat up there all week singing his heart so finally we decided we should take a photo, sometimes he sits underneath and it looks like hes serenading Dill.

I forgot to show the flip books I made in their finished state so here goes

Each book is made from just one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock as is the next project, little maze books, sometimes called meander books or brag books anyway they're for keeping in your handbag. I've made one for me and Vikki and one for her Mother in Law, so next time someones asks if I have any photo's of the wedding I can whip it out LOL.

So I'd best clean up my desk now and then I'm ready to start the final project before getting stuck into the wedding album.

No scrapping with Dawn today as she's off for a long weekend which means when I go to town tomorrow I must remember she won't be there to carry my shopping LOl also having an eye test tomorrow have a strong suspicion I need stronger glasses for reading and close up stuff.

I think you look wonderfully a skirt no less. What sweet pictures of the houndies. It's fun to see Elmo and Orin being such good friends. Now are the flip books digital or paper? I'm astounded if they're digital; I almost can't believe it if they're paper. There are so many layers. Your talent amazes me! As does Eric's. The weathervane is so wonderful...and appropriate.

Oh I wish the rain would stop too, we've been drenched twice today going out to baby classes!

I love the custom made weather vane :)

Sue said...

With Wimbledon starting Monday I suppose we should expect a wet fortnight:)

Had to smile at you playing footie:)

Song and I would like to point out that Orin is not listed over on the right. Noew it's official we think he should be there;)

Mojo looks such a kind dog. Gangley looks like she's given up with all the male genes around:)

Alfie is lovely. Did he come to you as a tri?

Your maze book is just stunning.

Love the weather vane. Eric could sell those.

Sue aka Greyhound Lover said...

oops thank you Sue and Song what a terrible Muuver I am.

Have also added bridge babies, used to be there but I took them off one day when I was feeling sad, putting them back has brought back sadness but so many happy memories. They are forever in my heart, not a day goes by when I don't think about them.

A full house of people and dogs. I wish I were so handy as to make my own cool greyhound weathervane.

Carol said...

what lovely piccies of you, Ben and Matthew in the garden! lovely memories.

The brag books are gorgeous - you've really got that digi stuff off to a fine art...

Just looking at the pictures of the pack on your side bar - really can't believe that Alfie has now been with you the longest....I can remember the day you got him...and your bridge babes, surprised me how many I knew and their sad stories!

Good luck at the opticians today and dont' got mad with the shopping!! see you soon xx

Is touching wood the same as knock on wood in the USA? :-)

Winnie said...

The pack look very handsome and I am mightily impressed with the weather vane. You could definitely sell those.

We just remembered it's Wimbledon on Monday. Eeekk! it does not feel like summer yet at all.

Love and licks, Winnie
