Too Much Adventure

Well, this would be the second morning in a row that I have provided the neighbours with entertainment. Thank you Jackie.
She is a sneaky little creature. Nothing like a brisk morning jog in your bathrobe to get the heart pumping.
She leads you to believe she has to go outside for a personal moment. Then lulls you into a false sense security.
Jackie starts making her way towards to the back veranda doors. Then, BAM, takes off after the collection truck.
There is absolutely no convincing this pup that refuse collector is allowed to take our bins at the end of the driveway.
She ignores your lines of reasons and continues to follow the truck in all her barking glory which is amplified by the cone of the shame.
I guess all that morning calisthenics has tuckered her out.

I haven't even bothered to take the leaves out before ushering her inside.

We are all a little sleep deprived. Jackie was spayed last week. The new accessory is driving us all a little crazy.

It is like outfitting her with her own personal megaphone. Not to mention the itchies. You will be sound asleep and all of a sudden BANG, SCRATCH, SCRATCH, on and so forth, usually at 0300.
It also makes for a challenging cuddle time session. I have so many bruises, people are starting to wonder what I do in my off time.
One more week and we will be free.

I have been working on Hub's slippers.
I was not happy with the first finished product.

They just look awkward to me. I need to make them a bit shorter in the length and higher on the sides.

Here is my second attempt:

I feel more confident with this version.

At this point, there really isn't too much happening. We are all just working hard to keep the puppy calm while she heals. Not an easy task at all! There are all these interesting Autumn colours and smells that Jackie is trying hard to investigate. One more week has been our home's mantra.

I'm off to catch up on Project Runway. I hope you are all keeping well. Until next time. :)
