So... I was getting ready for another early morning walk around the back pasture and realized that my morning outfit probably qualifies me for the show 'What Not To Wear' which is aimed towards those who are a walking fashion disaster. Yep. That's me in the morning!! Note the lovely rainboots; my 'Life Is Good' PJ pants and the Frostline Gortex parka I made Steve when we were dating 27 years ago. (Does anyone else remember Frostline kits???) It's actually been a great coat and is still very much in use!! My cup of coffee tops off my outfit and I am ready to go! (Rest assured I don't go into town looking like this!!)
Sophie is getting much braver when it comes to the llamas. She even ventured up to the fence this morning and got quite the greeting. Llama kisses all around!! She hasn't gotten quite that brave with the cows that are to the west of us. I think their loud moooing has her a bit spooked!!
There is quite a line of llamas that are out there for her to get to know! Llamas really are curious animals and have been quite interested in Sophie since she arrived!
Back at the house, she tips over her toy basket and tries to decide what to play with next. Decisions, decisions!
We have had a very fun week of surprise packages!!! Yesterday a package came with special treats for Sumo, Sophie and I from Sheri. Sumo got a delicious bag of dog treats that he is determined NOT to share with Sophie. Good luck with that one! There are already puppy teeth marks in the bag!!
Sophie got a very fun toy that has already become her favorite. She is very willing to share her toy, but has not had any takers up to this point. There is something not all that appealing about a toy covered in puppy slobber. I don't know, maybe I'm weird!!
As for me, I was spoiled with some GORGEOUS Hazelknit yarn and Enchanted Knoll roving - both is shades of blues which is my all time favorite!! Yes, we are all feeling a bit spoiled. Thanks, Sheri!! (Oh, and I am NOT sharing my gift with Sophie if I can at all help it - I don't care how cute she is!!!)
The other unexpected package that came was from some very dear friends of ours from residency days in New York. We had hoped to meet them over Labor Day in Virginia Beach for a half marathon, but couldn't because of Steve's call schedule. (Next year for sure!!) Anyways, they found these running shirts and thought we would enjoy them as we plug away at our marathon training. The tanks quote Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Amen! This verse gets quoted quite often during our long training runs, which are now up to 18+ miles. Thanks Rob and Judy!!!
Beautiful sunny day here. Gotta love Fall! Off to enjoy it!! You all do the same!!
Until Next Time....
