I was going to call my post 'An Ice Day for a White Walking', and then I would have shown this very cute photo:
and this very cute video because it was Zero Degrees this morning and the whole of the bush was covered in a crunchy layer of cold white ice:
and then I would have shown you the front and back of my quilt:
but I can only show you the front because we had The Incident.
The Labradors will insist on going beserkers-bonkers (running madly about inside) and the last two mornings I've shown them The Lemon Juice and then shut them outside because they were jumping all over the bed. They are heavy when they land on you.
I was sewing the aforementioned quilt and the ironing board was set up next to it and while I was making a cup of tea they ran wildly in and out and under the table and somehow pulled the iron off the board and the sewing machine off the table.
The sewing machine seems OK, it has a bit of the front that has slipped out of the other bit, but if I undo the screw at the side I think I can press it back in, I'm just not strong enough. The iron is fine, it still shoots great clouds of steam on demand.
Consequently I am not talking to them. They are in disgrace. I have been ignoring them since about 2 o'clock. Peri keeps winding around my legs with a toy in her mouth and her tail wagging madly. Lorelai Gilmore keeps leaping up and trying to cross my field of vision and gain some attention. They are really in disgrace. It's not as if they are allowed to run about inside, I always send them out to play. I raise my arm and point my finger at the door and say 'OUT!" in my best Teachers' Voice. And they had plenty of exercise on their walk and we had a big game outside as well. I shall have to instigate Operation Discipline for the next few days and pull the into line.
Oh and I found that someone (Lorelai Gilmore?) has been digging away the back door mat. Revenge for being shut out? Or a misguided attempt to dig her way back inside? It was at the hinge end of the door...
So I consoled myself with four episodes of Terminator:The Sarah Connor Chronicles and some nice knitting in the round. I shall further console myself with a nice cup of tea and an episode of Monk, possible followed by some more Chuck, my latest favourite show. I suppose all's well that ends well......
