Butterfly Wife updated that she sent out her 696th card to wounded soldiers at Landstuhl. Not too shabby. So I thought I'd give a little update.

To break the monotony of baby knitting, I have thrown in a square or two.


These 12 will be sent off to Heather for Hand-Crafted Comfort, her organization that assembles afghans for the wounded at Walter Reed. I haven't kept track of how many I've made total, but I am keeping track of certain colors because I am trying to make enough to provide an entire afghan. I've made 35 so far towards my own blanket. And isn't this just the greatest way to make a project: I do the fun stuff and then mail everything to Heather so she can assemble them, sew them together, weave in ends, and cut tails? Awesome. Why can't all my projects be like that?

And someone else mentioned the other day that we haven't had a pupdate in a while.

This morning, Charlie had an upset stomach. Apparently he decided the best thing to do was to go all the way downstairs, crawl under the Christmas tree, barf, and then lay down in it. Our dog's a genius.

That's funny, because I just finished a post at my site about my crochet addiction and just happened to link you.

Yarn=Crack, I swear!!

I like the weaving and sewing. I think I'm alone in that. Cute pup.

Keep up the great work.

Charlie is so cute. I am sure you must do like I do when they are sick and silly at the same time: love him. :D

There's just something to love about the silliness that is dogs, isn't there? I'm not a fan of barfing, and Ike's got the most sensitive stomach I've ever seen. If we give him anything other than Pedigree for Fat Asses and chicken broth, he vomits and craps copiously.

And do we chuck him out for a model with less barfiness? Naaah, we clean it up in an irritated manner and laugh at the way he puts himself in the corner in shame.

Gotta love dogs.
