OH what a beautiful day

HI... what a gorgeous day, above freezing, and i was able to have the front door open for a while today... so nice to have fresh air in the house... not doing any spinning as i am trying to get my jacket finished, almost got the back done, and then just the front to do... very easy pattern as long as i don't make a mistake... making a mistake on such an easy pattern makes me feel like a fool... but i am learning how to correct the errors without frogging it..
Levi and I had a good agility day yesterday, he is learning and is running faster although he still figures he know where he is going, he loves the A frame, the Dog walk and teeter... i got him to fly over 4 jumps and then thru a tunnel, and then the plan was that I would tell him 'tunnel' again as he was in the middle of the first tunnel, and he was to turn left and go thru another tunnel, but he does love the A frame, and he could see it as he came out of the tunnel, so he ignored me and headed for the A frame..then stood on top of it while i stood at the bottom... but he is learning... I feel that we aren't progressing, but my agility buddies come early to watch us, and they say that he is doing well... so i will try a couple of trials this spring.. and maybe only a couple of runs a trial... don't want to push him too hard... i need someone to take some pics of him so you can see him run..
Better go get supper organized, Joe is here for supper, we sure see a lot more of him these days since he and the spouse have separated..but i know he is lonely..we found the house a little crowded over Christmas with him and Matt hanging around for 4 was okay when they were growing up, we got used to the extra bodies around, but now that they have been gone for 10 years, we have gotten used to just us here.. we live in an old mobile, would love a new house, but we do have a roof over our heads and it and the 10 acres are paid for... see ya soon

Hi I actually have been to Cache Creek last year. But it was just as a day vistor. Because things at home I'm not likely to sign up for any over night things. But it sure is fun to find someone else who loves silk spinning. Although I haven't done to much of it just lately. I have to read some of your back blogs. I want to find out about your Dogs. Take Care
