One Year "Anniversary", and Scrap Strips Blanket Update

Today marks the One Year "Anniversary" of the day we moved here.  This is my "On This Day" in Facebook History thing...  I didn't share it (at least not on Facebook).  I need a Time Machine...   So I can go back in time and NOT move here....   :(

I sewed what I have done so far on the Scrap Strips Blanket. It measures 41 inches across.  So one more strip should be good. I haven't started it yet, though..   I wasn't sure about the strips when they were all separate. Some looked smaller (I think I used some Wool-Ease or maybe Simply Soft scraps which are thinner weight than Red Heart..) in spots. But once they are all together (and when I get a border all around), it should even out.

I think I mentioned before how Duke gives us "The Look" when he wants to go outside.  He sticks his head forward as far as he can and stares at you.  I have been trying to get a picture of him doing it since forever...  I never can get one. But this time came pretty close. It is much funnier and more dramatic in Real Life.    Tomorrow is his surgery.  :(    Poor guy doesn't know what's coming..  I need to go get some more dog shampoo so we can give him a bath again. He got one the day before his last appointment, but he stinks already again. How can he just go outside and stinks when he comes back in???....

Duke and Indy must have similar "I need to go potty" genes. Indy will come up to me and stick her head as far into my lap as possible until I say, "Do you need to go potty?" Then she will high-tail it, as fast as she can, to the front door, turn around and look at me like, "So, I'm ready, Mom!"

Tell Duke that Indy ays "Break a leg" on surgery day.

Thank you, Paula! Our other dog (Jetta) also has a thing she does (mostly when my husband gets home from work); he *has* to let her outside, and she claws at the door then when he opens it she has to bolt out there, barking at the imaginary intruder in the backyard... O.o I think she was dropped on her head when she was a puppy (we got her when she was four months old)... Lol
