Our Mad Dog and Her Wednesday Wag

The Wednesday Wag!

The heat is getting to all of us!!!  I, at least have no fur coat now as I had a Spa Day and Mom had the ladies cut me very, very short!  Not a true Airecut but who cares when it is sooooooo hot!

I am also very thankful for the tiles in our home which stay cool.

Mom it is too hot for posing for pictures!

It is even too warm to play ball!

Mom bought me a bone a while ago and Molly’s Mom gave her a tip about re-filling it.  Wash the empty bone in the dishwasher and then mix peanut butter and banana together and put it in the bone and freeze it.  So Mom had a go.

Here is it filled and waiting to be wrapped for the freezer.

And now frozen.

Mom gave me the bone on the hottest day so far and it was lovely and cool and yummy.

I took it outside in the sunshine and spent an hour getting the tasty centre out.

Mom says she will wash the bone again and re-fill it!

It has been a busy few weeks and it has also been very warm so, being outside in the fresh air all day, I do need my beauty sleep at night!!!!

Here I am enjoying the sunshine and Mom was busy with her plants.  I get a tummy tickle every time she walks past!!!!

Mom’s plants in her pots are doing well this year and she has managed to stop the slugs eating them all.

Evening now so I am in my basket by Mom’s desk for a quick snooze before bed!  It’s a hard life being an Airedale you know!

Hope you are having a very Woofy Happy Wednesday!

I am loving the warm weather at the moment although all the fresh air is making me very tired at night!!!!!

It is very cool first thing in the morning on my deck half way up the garden and from here I can still see what Mom is doing in the kitchen!!!

tennis-balls

Wimbledon is on at the moment and when I was on the bed watching TV with Mom I was watching the tennis balls go from one end to the other!  They just need to hit me a few!!!!!  Mom says I cannot have any more tennis balls at the moment as there are about seven in the garden somewhere!!!!

I did sneak in this morning and catch forty winks in my basket whilst Mom was at her desk, I need to catch up on my sleep sometime!!!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful Summer Woofy Wednesday.

Treacle, Thursday & Friday!

Good Morning BlogWorld I know we have missed a few days but we have been so busy.  Here am I, above, on Mom’s knee yesterday as it was her Birthday!!!!!  We shared some Popcorn as Dad and Boys were all away and busy so it was just her and I!!!

DSC_0237

Although it was Mom’s Birthday I got some treats when my food delivery arrived!  I am always envious of Molly as she gets lots of things to try and now my foody people are doing the same. So far I have tried the Training Treats and I really like them.  I don’t need the weight control of course, as my Doctor says I am in perfect condition but I am sure they will taste nice and the pouch is wet food which I have never had, so that will be different to try.

Mom has been washing up a storm now that her new washing machine has arrived including all the beds and I was with her when she was unmaking them, any excuse to snuggle in the bedding!

So after a very busy few days I am just busy relaxing now that Mom is working at her desk this morning!!!!!

**********************

Thank you Treacle you have a snooze now!  I went to the quilt shop that is closing at the end of this month and got a few things which were reduced and I thought I would show you what I got.

DSC_0226

My purchases.

DSC_0228

Thread was on offer and so were the needles.

DSC_0229

Fat Quarters were on offer.

DSC_0230

I always buy a new blade for my rotary cutter when I see them.

DSC_0231

The material I got was £7 a metre which is half price to what it normally is.  I just love the dog footprint material.

DSC_0232

I just love the colours in this otter material.

DSC_0233

And I love this beach fabric.

I don’t know what I am going to make with it yet but it will go into my stash until a project comes up.

I have finished the blocks for Kathleen Tracy’s Block of the Month and in July we will get the instructions of how to put it together.  I have used scraps and bits to make the blocks so I hope they look good together when it is finished!!!!!

I had a lovely peaceful day yesterday and then went out in the evening to Piccolino in Nottingham for dinner with DH, Eldest and Fiance as Youngest is away for the week on his first training week at the Head Office so he will be home tonight and we are going out with him tonight as Eldest and Fiance couldn’t make tonight!!!!  That’s okay I get to go out twice!!!!!  Not doing my diet much good though!!!

Tonight we are going to The European in Derbyshire, which is another lovely little Italian Restaurant (above).

I have house jobs to do today and grocery shopping and then DH is out all day again tomorrow commentating, so I have errands to run tomorrow morning and then will get back and do some more quilting.  The weather here has been better yesterday and today with the sun shining after all the rain from last weekend and the beginning of the week but it is still cool and not as warm as it should be for Summer!

Today, of course, is the Longest Day and it was getting light at 3.30am (Yes I was awake to hear the birds start their dawn chorus!!!!) and it won’t get dark until about 9.45pm so a very long day!  Of course that means that the nights will, although slowly, start to draw in again, Noooooooooo!!!!!  We are hoping that the weather is going to be okay on Sunday so we can get into the garden as we have not been able to do anything over the last couple of weekends because of all the rain!!!! 

Whatever you are up to this weekend I hope you have a great time. 

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

The last few days have been lovely and sunny and warm so the back door has been open from early in the morning to early evening and I have been outside all the time!!!!  I just love this weather.  Mom was throwing my tennis ball for me for a while and then I decided I wanted a rest!!!!!

IMG_2768

Mom has bought me a new ID tag which is brass and has deep engraving and then painted black.  This side as you can see says that I am microchipped and the other side has Mom and Dad’s name and details on.  I don’t notice that I have a new tag but Mom says it sounds different on my collar!

Youngest and I are on our own today and I love it, as I get away with a lot of things when Youngest is in charge!!!!  Mom and Dad are back later today.

I hope you are having a very happy Woofy Wednesday.

Treacle.

 

Anyone Have Time To Come Outside?

Today is just lovely and sunny and warm and I have been outside since 7.00am this morning and only came in to collect my lunchtime biscuit!!!!  I just love this weather.

DSC_0086

This is how Blue the sky is today with just a few whisps of white cloud.  Mom took this from her car so the black band is where she rested the camera but then got the car too!!!!!

DSC_0149

I had been outside all day yesterday too as the weather has been so sunny for the last few days but I was really tired last night and got to snuggle with Mom at bedtime!!!!!

I love this Spring weather.  I hope you are all having a great week.

Woof, Treacle xx
