See the fence in front of Mikki? Well, that fence is there to keep the dogs OUT of the sandbox.
Looks like Mikki just figured out that she managed to get herself inside the bars and that I am on the outside. Getting out proved to be more difficult than getting in. Although, notice that the gate is right there on the left. So Miks gave up and settled herself back into the warm sand. For a dog that is always hot I can't figure out the lure of the sun-warmed sand.
I got a really nice message about my blog the other day...

Hi Darcie,

So my boss asked me to do a research project about what makes one blog better than another. I decided to pick a subject that I love, and look at a whole bunch of blogs related to that subject (and I'm getting paid for this?!?!?!), and I have to say, your blog is TERRIFIC. You are absolutely hilarious. I love how you got the cadet to hold your knitting! Hilarious. Your projects are great, and you knit (ehem) the stories of knitting into your everyday life in a great personal and funny way.

My first question was "Where is this job? And how do I get one?" And then I wondered if she realized that there really hasn't been a whole lot of knitting going on lately. But I will take a compliment when I get one. Thanks, Lucy.




So to rectify the situation in a small way here is Best of Opal 6-ply, colourway 1712. While I love these socks I shudder to think about how quickly I will be wearing them again.

I love your pictures! And your socks are beautiful. I, myself, have only finished one sock. I keep telling myself I'll finish the other one, but....I always seem to find something more interesting to work on. Great blog, thanks for the read!

Mikki is adorable. We had our dogs at a group play this morning and my female GSD was trying to groom a mini dachsund. What a comedy!

Yes sock weather is fast approaching NY as well. {{{sigh}}}

Mikki looks so cute in the sandbox jail... no worries at all. LOL

Julie, as the proud (?) aunt of a mini dachsund I am aware that any activity involving a dachsie is generally a comedy. However, I am still having trouble wrapping my head around a GSD being involved in the entertainment. :)

Cute dog, I have a GSD and he also lays panting in the sun! (When we get any!)

Darcie - I will try to get a photo of this wiggly little thing on the weekend, and will send. It's just hilarious!

I love the picture of Mikki in the sand. Our dogs love it too, so we made a sandbox just for them. You can see a picture of them on my blog: http://dogloverknits.blogspot.com
