We arrived in Goldendale WA. on Monday afternoon. Tuesday morning Blue wondered away from my sister's home. We searched for two days walking more miles through wooded areas then I thought possible. Absolutly no luck. There was no sign of him at all. I put an add in the local paper and we put up posters in the area. This morning we had to leave Goldendale for the camping trip we have had planned for a year. This was truly one of the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I think someone picked him up. I just hope there concious gets the better of them and they call us. I know this is much different then my past blogs but I hope all of you who read this will send good thoughts out to Blue.
That is the question that Roger asked me this morning. We have a new little girl staying with us.
This is Miss Mia, she is three years old and a real sweethart. She came from a home where she was love and spoiled just as doxies are suppose to be. Unfortunately a baby came into the house and Mia had trouble sharing the attention. This happens so many times to this breed. We have been lucky through the years. When we had our first Doxie he adjusted well to Rich's arrival. Then when Rob came along it was like, ok whatever. The rest of the Dahlenburg pack are a little unsure about this new arrival.
Lucy is the undisputed queen here at Ladybug Cottage. She is very short on patience with Mia. Of course Mia was the queen at her house, so the two queendom's are colliding. So far it is a bit of a power struggle but I think they will each figure out their place.
Sweeney would really, really like it if she would just stay off my lap. Which brings us back to Roger's …
Yesterday I was looking at blogs and I came across one that spun me back 34 years. It seems this blogger has just found out that a baby is on the way and it is due on July Seventh. I thought back 34 years when I was feeling that same wondrous change in my body. My husband and I had wanted to add a little one to our family for awhile. I was beginning to despair of it ever happening, but a trip to the doctor proved me wrong. When I went I remember being afraid, afraid that I was, and afraid that I wasn't. The doctor did the exam and then asked if I would like to hear the heartbeat. The sound seemed to me like a small bird just flapping his wings. The tears of joy came to my eyes and I could not believe the miracle of it all.
I tried to figure out a fun way to tell Roger it was really going to happen. I decided to stop at Wal-Mart and buy a little outfit to hand to him when I walked in the door. I knew in my heart and without a doubt that this baby was a little b…
Last Summer I began making noises about wanting a sewing room. At first I was willing to redo the garden shed and move out there. That suggestion didn't meet with a lot of support because of the sheer
amount of work that would be involved. The next suggestion was the guest room, however that room was small. So we looked around for ideas and came up with using the guest room, but Roger would make a Murphy bed. Since this room is only used for a guest room about two nights every other year this was the perfect solution. This is the top of the cutting table which I love. I should be able to cut anything I need to out on it. Yes I have my two girl friends here to watch over me.
This is the outside of the Murphy bed. All of the wood is oak, I wanted everything to be as light as possible because the windows are pretty small. Please note all of the pink things hanging on the handles. These are for the princess when she arrives.
This is a bank of cabinets and drawers next to …
