Sammy Checking in On a Monday

Mountain View

Happy Monday to all!  I think it’s a holiday in the US as well as Canada so I hope everyone is enjoying a day off.   The above picture was taken in British Columbia by my dad.  What I wouldn’t give to be in my car heading towards those mountains right now!  Well I managed to screw up my calendar and what I thought I was supposed to post today is actually posting next week so I thought instead I’d post some pictures of Sam since I haven’t in ages.  Things here have been hectic with dad having more heart surgery and then not feeling the best and I’m having some health issues of my own.  Yet I can always count on Sam to cheer me up.  Enjoy…


Sam's 3rd Bday

Sammy on his 3rd Birthday!


A rabbit just relaxing right out our front door on the lawn.  Thankfully it’s still brown so winter isn’t around the corner yet. 

Sam watching rabbit

After barking at above rabbit at the top of his lungs Sam retreated to the couch to continue barking at rabbit who couldn’t care less.


Since things have been stressful I’ve had my knitting needles out.  I just finished a hat and now I’m trying my hand at mittens.

Sam sockie

Ok mommy, enough pictures!  It’s time to play sockie again!


I’m going to try really hard to visit all my blogging buddies this week! I miss all of you. Hope everyone has a good week!

    That rabbit better watch itself! I wonder what Sammy would do if he got out? Love the pictures, and appreciate that little diversion this Monday morning. Happy day off, and I’m still praying that all goes well with your dad :)

    It is good to see Sammy again! Wow, that is one large rabbit. Would Sammy chase it or just bark at it? Sorry you are having health issues, and hope you are feeling better quickly.

    Sam is adorable and his watchful eye on that rabbit is the best! Your hand work is beautiful! Hope the stress leaves you with every stitch. Good health is so important and I hope that you and your dad are back to feeling good again very soon.

    Hello fellow knitter! Sorry I haven’t been by lately. Your hat looks cute and super warm. Are you making matching mittens? None of my things match.
    Hope you and your dad feel better soon. Don’t let these issues get you down.
    Pleas give Sammy lots of pets from me and Kona on his 3rd birthday :)
