Pre-Wash Cycle

Warning: If you're not a dog lover, this post might gross you out.

Every evening this is the game that is played between Arlo & The Bearded One. Arlo really thinks that he needs to pre-wash all the dishes that are being loaded in the dishwasher. The Bearded One thinks otherwise. He will chase Arlo out of the kitchen but Arlo simply loops around the island and comes back in behind his back. When he's really emboldened he actually climbs into the dishwasher. The Bearded One will turn back to the dishwasher and chase Arlo out. And so the game goes, every night.

On the quilting front, I'm actually getting something accomplished. This is one of the quilts for a graduating high school senior at church. I'm trying out a double spiral board -- first time I've used it. The spirals are very cool but it takes me longer to position everything than it does to actually quilt it. I've completed 7. There are 35 blocks in the quilt!

And, for those of you still awaiting spring, here's a little bit for your enjoyment. This is my little flowering plum tree. The 74 degree weather last weekend has encouraged everything to burst into bloom. As much as I love spring, it doesn't like me. My allergies have gone haywire.

We have a dog that likes to help pre-wash too.

Some days I chase her out, some days I ignore her...

Ha! Look at my favorite spotted dog. How funny is that. Great story. Hilarious.

Liz, that quilting pattern is impressive. You rock!

Lovely flowering plum tree. What a treat to see that beauty in your yard. Thanks for sharing.

Fun post! *karendianne.
