A friend said “Maybe this explain’s Lilu’s attitude” Maybe! thanks Lisa!
It reminds me of a book I read when I was a kid “Ace: The Very Important Pig
The corgi is by no means the star of this book, she’s a brat who constantly reminds the Pig that she is related to royalty! Similar to that saying…on that sign I once read. “In ancient egypt, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this” Maybe it’s like that with corgis to some degree, not that I’m saying Lilu thinks that highly of herself ;)
This post almost didn’t happen, last night as I went to upload, my card reader only showed 2 photos! I tried plugging my camera in directly but to no avail! Sadly, I turned to my husband for help, and…he recovered all of them! He said they were still on the memory card, because when you delete them all it does is give permission to the camera to write over them and not show them anymore. I don’t know how it happened, but all is well!
Anyways…Last weekend was the last snow of the season up north. As I heard tales of the snow that had commenced on Saturday, My heart yearned to go, as 2 friends and I talked about it Sunday afternoon, we decided to do it! We raced home, grabbed some jackets and snacks and headed up to Payson with Lilu and our roomie’s dog Arthas! When we first arrived, it looked like the snow had already melted, but we kept driving north and at the 1.5 hour mark, we hit snow! Patchy and melting snow, but snow nonetheless dangit!
The dogs didn’t know what to do
Lilu tried tasting it
What is this cold white stuff?
My 2 buddies, Jen and Hilary (coincidentally, both from Colorado, who woulda thought they would drive to see snow)
We had parked at a campground (unsurprisingly uninhabited) and went on a little hike
Tree used as tripod!
Then we had a little picnic of trail mix, chips & salsa and peanut butter & crackers
Once we stopped moving though…Lilu went from this (happy corgi)
to this (indignant corgi!)
to this (bambi eyes…I’m cold mom)
Her feet did look pretty cold…darn this melting snow!
So up on the bench with me she came
This post was a little corgi-ridiculous I know, but it was her first snow ever! And she’s so photogenic…maybe I’m a little biased…
Sometimes its those little annoyances that make or break your day, the things that are super frustrating and then, oh so satisfying when fixed. For me and Nick, it was these little guys…
The little clips that are supposed to hold the duvet inside of the cover? Well, ours did not. They would snap off inside the duvet and bounce around…not cutting it. So I finally fixed my little problem, with some ribbon and a needle and thread.
First I cut 10 pieces of ribbon (about 4 in. long) tied one end into a knot and sewed the ribbon onto each corner of the feather duvet. I also sewed a ribbon inside each corner of the cover, so that accounts for 8 pieces,
The other 2, I sewed into the top middle of each( the duvet and duvet cover). That part kept sagging in and since it’s the part you constantly grab to pull up under your chin or make the bed, it always got discombobulated.
Our duvet had loops in the corners so first I knotted the ribbon to the loop before sewing in.
I made sure the thread was thick, and the stitches and knots are secure
Once the ribbons are sewn on, I just spread them both out on the bed, cover inside-out
and tied them together
Repeat on all corners (and also in the middle in my case) now all that’s left is turn the duvet back to the right side (it helps to have two people for that step) and button up the bottom.
And ta da
Smooth as corduroy can be, only took about an hour and one less annoying thing crossed off my list.
