Catching Up

Helena, MT  High 91  Low 60

Tara brought Emmet over to visit. Good times

tara1With the new chairs, carpet and quilt, I really hated the bench cushions. Jim agreed with me and we found some great material. Jim was going to make new cushion covers but he said he was going to borrow Judy’s sewing machine. I laughed and told him I doubted she had such a thing. I was right. We found someone to make them for us. Here are the results.

We went from this

To this

Jim redid the frames with matching buttons. Boy do they look good!

Skittlez has established her nest behind Jim’s chair. We had to help her get the stuff up on the platform so she could arrange it how she wanted it.

When Scooter isn’t relaxing on the bed she sometimes takes over Skittlez’s nest.

It’s hard to believe that we will be leaving here a week from tomorrow.

  4. Can't wait to see the bungalow. She is looking prettier and prettier! Jim can sew, too??? Is there anything he can't do?

    I've never seen pups get as "comfy" as S&S. They are so cute. My brother-in-law owned a miniature Doxie...boy was he smart and cute.

    What a beautiful baby Emmet is.

  12. They look good. Are you following 90 across South Dakota. We leave here on the 24th and will be heading to Des Moines. Keep in touch. Maybe we can meet for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We need to stop in Des Moines for a day or two,

  13. Can't believe how much little sleeping Emmet looks like me. That's the same pose I try to be in most of the day. Got to get in my daily nap(s) now that I'm retired! ;c)

  22. Love the doggie beds. They sure get comfy, don't they?

  23. Babies are so funny the way they lay - feet out, arms out, etc. So darn cute. And of course the doggies - don't you just love it when they're in their beds? I love the new cushions, much better than the original fabric. I'd sure love to have tan cushions, but what I have hides the dirt so well, I'll probably keep them forever. :)

  24. Those benches are beautiful. I guess all our puppies like soft places.
