Probably one of my very favorite photos ever.
for some classic "ugly duckling" pics from our past!
Check out Glass Half Full for the linky on this one. Come on- post one, too... you know you want to!!
We were watching our neighbors' dogs while they were on vacation. I went to let them out the other day and noticed there was red splattered all in the fresh snow. Maybe it was too early in the morning, I don't know, but I am still trying to understand my thinking... My initial reaction was to look up at the sky - was a bird bleeding? Was I really expecting to see blood fall from the sky?
I soon found out it was from the dog as I see dozens of bloody paw prints on the kitchen floor. I shooed the dogs back outside while I cleaned it up and composed myself. Turns out his toenail ripped off or something- I still haven't been able to figure it out, but I made an early call to our neighbors in Disney World and the blood stopped and all seems to be well now.
That would have been weird, though, if it really had been a bird bleeding.
But then, the same day, I kinda wish someone had been looking...
While I madly knit away to finish this, my hubby cleaned the kitchen- swept the floor, washed all the dishes by hand, cleaned all the counters, even the kids' placemats, and read the boys their bedtime story, without me even asking. So just in case you thought differently of my hubby after this post, you can be assured that he appreciates me probably more than many husbands would, and he loves to be my helpmate just as much as I am his...
