Wordless Wednesday, but with words and it is still Tuesday

Heehee. The post will be mostly pictures, so it seemed like it should be Wordless Wednesday, but it's still Tuesday, and I like to practice my typing every once in a while.

Besides, I had to update a couple of things. Mango was right; Dad did have a coal and Oscar pee. And he's definitely happy to have it behind him. Heehee. I crack myself up sometimes! I think there is some teeny, tiny part of him that is glad to have it done, but Mom told me that he was muttering something about not wishing it on his worst enemy when she was driving him home from the clinic. Eh. If he only knew what they did to me at the vet office Every Time I Go, he might not complain so much.


Today was gloomy and wet and icky, so Mom and I didn't have any opportunities to go crunching through/falling down on picturesque autumn leaves. Instead, I went out and modeled my coat a bit. I don't really like it, but for the right amount of treats, I will pose for pictures. So, pose I did.

But only for so long, because I wanted to run. Even if the silly coat hampers my running abilities.

TaiChi, on the other hand, has no issues with her coat. And wears it most of the time - even in the house, because she gets cold easy. But she doesn't look like a crossing guard, so I don't blame her for wanting to wear her coat.

I did a very brief ROTE with Mom, but because it was so dreary and blah, mostly I hung out with Dad (who was recuperating today), and hogged all the bed space for myself kept his place warm when he got out of bed.

It was a Very Tough Day.

Mom, meanwhile, finally finished her little sewing project. Which means that she is now freed up to start stitching Christmas presents. (If you are a recipient - and you probably don't know who you are - you might want to anticipate your Christmas present around, oh, Memorial Day. I'm just sayin'....)

At least she took the time to personalize it! And I think the top dog kinda looks like Twix. I would say that it looks like Lorenza, but the stitched doggie doesn't have a dress on, so I don't think it could be Lorenza. And the dog with the bone? Hmm. Maybe Brownie. Whaddya think? Mom says that the pattern dictated how the doggies look - I have suggested that she start looking for patterns that have 'doodles in them. Dad said something about Mom already having enough patterns to keep her busy until the world comes to an end... Let's hope the Mayans weren't right, because I don't think Mom can work that fast!

Mango said...

When my master had his Coal and Oscar Pee he got happy drugs and was a total doofus when he got home, but then the drugs wore off and he was a big cry baby. Ha! Momma says she is going to wait for her doctor to nag her three times before she does it. Her family all have extra insides and she is worried she does too which means they won't be able to stick their little spy camera in far enough to see everything.

Your mom has a ton of projects to finish. She better get sewing.

We think you look so stylish in your 'crossing guard' coat. Maybe you can ask for one like TaiChi's for Christmas.

Great cross-stitch project - we especially like the bones on the border.

Function v. Fashion: a neverending battle.
Here's an idea, if you would refuse to go out in the rain (like my little sisters) you'd never have to wear the coat!

Twix said...

Fi, since you don't mind rain, why do you have a raincoat? I'm glad you and your mom were thinking of me when she made her beautiful cross stitch! My momma says she doesn't have the patience to do those kinds of things.
PS: Will you email me from my sidebar with your mailing address so I can send your PIF?
