New Project...

After the morning's yuckiness, I decided to take out one of my boxes of kits and see what I had in there. It was like going through a toy box. I nearly pulled out a larger Shepherd's Bush kit, but then I spotted an old Lori Birmingham Altoid Tin kit. This peaked my interest in several ways. The first being that I think very highly of Lori Birmingham, having taken a class from her at CATS several years ago. She is a neat lady. The second reason is that it is in alignment with my wanting to do more smalls. The last reason is that my eyes fell across two of my favorite words in stitching--Queen Stitch. Readers of this blog who have been around for a while know that I can go on and on about how much I love to do Queen Stitch. I think it will look especially cute on this piece.

I am feeling a bit better than this morning. I rested and tried not to overdo anything today. I also ate really healthy food today and got some fresh air by taking Liesl for a little walk. The doctor said that I can take little walks and that it is good for me. One of my highlights of my day is walking with Liesl. Anyone who has experience with this breed knows the happy trot that they have. She trots along with her ears back and just looks so happy that it makes me happy to watch her.

I got to stitch tonight while watching the Mythbusters marathon on Discovery. I love this show. It is just so fascinating how they use science to prove or disprove urban legends.

Well, off to dreamland...

I'm so sorry to hear about your accident. I was walking along the coastline in P.G. today admiring all of the doggies out for a walk and wishing we had our Buster here for our long weekend. I was wondering, where is the dog friendly restaurant you have mentioned in your blog? If we do bring Buster sometime, I'd like to be able to get a bite to eat with him along.

Hoping you get stronger every day.

Hi Laurie,

Thank you very much for your kind words. Welcome to the Peninsula.

The name of the restaurant is the Forge in the Forest in Carmel. Carmel, as a rule is dog friendly and most restaurants with a patio will allow you to bring your dog.

If you want awesome clam chowder while you are in town, check out Vivolo's in PG. Awesome!

Vivolo's is one of our favorites. We visit it every time we are over here. We try to get over once every 4-6 weeks (especially in the summer when it is so blistering hot in the central valley). We've driven by Forge in the Forest numerous times, now we'll have to stop and try it. I also love The Cottage down on Lincoln as they have fabulous cream of artichoke soup. I swear we just eat our way from Monterey to Carmel when we're here! The breakers are incredible today. I'm sad we have to leave tomorrow.

I always enjoy following your blog. I sooo want another black and silver schnauzer. I miss my Pretzel girl and live vicariously through your Liesl.
