10 on 10 August 2012

I really love participating in the 10 on 10. To find out more about the project you can go here.

I took 10 pictures over the course of 10 hours one hour apart yesterday the 10th (okay 11). The goal is to find beauty in my everyday life.  The morning started out very unsettling.  My dog Harley has slipped and injured his leg the day before. When he got up yesterday morning he couldn't walk. He seemed to be suffering and he has tons of tumors... and it just didn't seem good
(don't worry he is doing better I know the last picture could throw you off).

It was raining out so it seemed like a good day to stay in a let him rest up. I stepped out and got my hair cut and when I got back it was sunny! But then it got cloudy out again.

Harley follows me around the house the entire day. If I go in the kids room he follows me, every trip to the bathroom he follows me. All day he is like my shadow.  I could see the pain in his eyes as he wanted so bad to be by my side.  Since it was raining out and seemed like a lazy day I let the boys play some games and basically do whatever they wanted as I sat next to Harley and spun yarn.  I haven't spun yarn in a while so I was so happy to have an excuse to just sit and spin.  Harley slept, watched, slept, watched.

First I finished up a skein of blue alpaca.  Brady was so excited I finally finished he yarn. He as been begging me to make him a blue alpaca toy. So hopefully I be knitting in a few days. Then I moved on to some merino roving I picked up at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. I made two bobbins of singles and then plied them together.  Tiny has requested I knit him a sheep toy with this yarn.

By the end of the day Harley seemed much better. He could even go up and down the stairs to go out to the bathroom. Hooray!  He is still a little slow today, but doesn't seem to be in pain so that is a very good thing. I think he is just a little sore.  He always sleeps under his blanket. He puts it on himself. It always makes me laugh. So the last picture is a good sign he his feeling himself under his blanket comfy cozy.

Well that was my day. Boring as it was I am glad we are all healthy.

Sorry your dog is injured, it's always so unsettling to be unable to help them. Love your spinning/yard pics... I've been looking into getting alpacas, so it's really fun to see what someone might do with the fleece!

When everyone is okay by the end of the day, that's a good day. :-)

Yarn is awesome. That roving looks so good spun. Poor Harley dude :( He's a trooper. Glad he's feeling better. Hair looks good. Who cut it? Stacy back yet or Kathie?
