It's a Pirate's Life for Me

10 days of work on the Bothy Cut Thru Pirate Ship. Just love working on this one. I think I'm going to take a week break. I'll pick it back up next Monday.

Our weather has been crazy. We hit the record snow for January. It was the snowiest January on record. Then Feb 1st we had record rainfall in one day. So that made slush and then it melt and froze. Then we got another 2 inches of snow. I don't know if we have grass in our yard any more I haven't seen it in so long. My poor dogs wants us to go buy some grass for them and put it on top of the snow haha.

Yesterday was Bowl day. First the Kitten Bowl on Hallmark. It was a lot cuter than I thought it was going to be. I'm a dog person so then the best Bowl was the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. Loved it! I got sick of saying Aww and my hubby just kept shaking his head at me. Then I just had to see what is was all about...The Fish Bowl on Nat Geo. Oh my. It was horrible but I couldn't look away. I ended up setting my DVR to record it so I could fast forward through it to see what all happens. How crazy is that?!? It was of course the Super Bowl too. Peyton Manning used to be in the Colt's so I was rooting for him. It's the only day a year I watch football. After that game I'm glad I don't watch it any more. It was boring! I think both teams are supposed to play not just the Seahawks. Oh well I'm glad they won since I guess they hadn't won before. They deserve it. I was disappointed in the commercials this year too. I did get stitching done though haha.

Saturday we had something really weird happen. My dog named Clay...
passed totally out cold. He's been coughing a lot. I was hoping it would go away. Fred took him outside and he started barking at something. When he came in he passed out. Fred thought he was dead and screamed for me to come. When I got there he was breathing but he sure wasn't there. I picked him up and took him in the living room and it took him about 2 minutes to wake fully up. Poor guy had no idea what happened. So here in a little bit I'm taking him to the vet. I'm worried cause the information on the internet hints to heart problems. Clay is a puppy mill dog. He has a lot of problems. I don't want him to be in pain.

Well I hope everyone has a great week. We have another storm coming tomorrow. Supposed to be a big one. Maybe 6 to 8 inches of snow and wind again. I don't mind. Just plan on staying inside safe and warm.
