A quickie update and a giveaway reminder

Before the madness begins. This weekend, which starts tomorrow for me, will be a whirlwind. I will probably be exhausted but it should be a fun filled weekend.
Today's chores include grooming a very muddy, dirty Rory, giving him a bath and blowing his coat dry. (We have had so much rain in this past week that my backyard is one giant mud puddle!) Then I have to pack both for myself and for Rory. Tomorrow at 4 in the morning (actually more like the middle of the night!) we are off to a dog show. This one is pretty special since it is only held every five years! There are 3,091 dogs entered!! Can you imagine? It should be an experience to say the least. Sometime tomorrow afternoon, once Rory is finished, we are heading to Connecticut for another show on Friday. This one is an Irish setter specialty. More than 75 Irish all in one place.

Friday will be crazy. After Rory shows around 11 - 11:30 we head back home. A few of my siblings are coming up to my neck of the woods for a wedding on Saturday. Plans are to meet Friday night for dinner and whatever. Saturday is my God-daughter's wedding. Sometime that night I hope to find a few hours to sleep since I'm back on the road at 4AM for another show on Sunday.


left: chasing the garbage truck in the rain and mud is hot work!

I don't see much stitching on tap for this weekend. But thanks to the generosity of my super wonderful cousins I am now hooked up with a new lap top and high speed internet!! I am taking my new laptop with me so if the wifi works I might be able to post an update. And come Monday if I am very lucky when I get to work I can close my office door and hang up a Do Not Disturb sign.
Don't forget to leave a comment if you want to be included in my pre-blogaversary giveaway this coming Monday. Leave the comment on the previous post. NOT THIS ONE if you want to be included. Also don't forget to leave your email is it isn't in your profile. I will pick the winner on Monday October 11.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Until next time.................


Love and stitches

and licks from Rory too.

LOL at Rory's stringy, wet rat-tail (sorry Rory) but doesn't he look lovely all fluffed up?
