The weekend, the dogs, and Special K's great-grandma

This weekend flew by!! First it started with picking up Frankie from the vet on Friday...you would have NEVER known he just got neutered. He was a ball of energy and ready to play. I did my best at keeping him calm. While in the room waiting for them to bring him to me...I saw this painting!
I don't think I have mentioned this before but I LOVE Norman Rockwell. He is one of my favorite painters and the best exhibit I have ever been to was in San Diego with my dad.

When I got home Friday night, I stayed home until Frankie settled down, then ran over to my sister G's house for dinner. Chicken Salad! Yummy!

Saturday morning, I had a spinning meet-up in Largo. We had another great turn out and I got a lot of spinning done! Then I came home and spent the afternoon catching up on tv shows and waiting for Special K to get back from a fishing tournament...I then met them over his dad's house for some dinner. The fresh fish was yummy!

Sunday was spent on the couch, watching movies and shows with Special K, eating, spinning, and knitting! It was a great day. The sad part of the day was when we found out that SK's great grandma passed. She was 94 and had been sick for a while but it was still sad that she passed. SK flew up on Monday night and will be there until Thursday. I miss him.

Now...doggie pictures. So, Jackjack has been really tolerant of Frankie. When I was knitting in bed watching SK pack on sunday night the following occured.

Frankie started like this....as he usually likes to lay....
Boys will be boys
Then he ended up like this and stayed this way for a long while. :) It was cute!
How cute.
Last night while I was laying in bed, binding off my sister's shawl...The three dogs figured there was enough room for all of them.

Well...I hope you liked this packed drive by post! I miss Kenny but I'm really glad he's with his family right now. I just wish I was there with them.

I hope everyone is doing well...and keeping busy! My pack sends their love!


  1. Three dogs now!! Wow you have your hands full!!

  2. Great photos of the pups! I'm so glad that Frankie is officially part of the pack now. Yay!

    What kind of fishing does K do? I noticed his fishing rod... I work for a "fishing center". :)

  3. Very sorry for K's loss... and sorry you can't be there with him.

    Frankie is such a terrier. Who needs recovery time!?

  4. Oi. Parabéns pelo excelente blog. Gostaria de lhe convidar para visitar meu blog e conhecer alguma coisa sobre o Brasil. Abração

  5. um so I didn't know that Norman Rockwell changed his name to Normal... but I guess it is a great alternative. lol

  6. Frankie almost looks happy and proud of his new "transformation". What a silly pup.

  7. Thank you for the loan of specialK. he was such a comfort to everyone and such a joy to have around.
    I didn't realize how long some of my family hadn't seen him as they didn't even recognize him! They all asked where you were.....

    I love you

  8. You had a busy weekend! I hope Special K and his family are doing ok.

  9. Glad Frankie is doing well. Noah had the same surgery last week and is fully recovered. He doesn't seem to know anything is missing.

  10. I was sorry to hear about the death in your family. I will keep all of you in my prayers.
    On a happier note I'm glad Frankie is doing well. All of your pictures are great. I hope you are having a great DOT!

  11. One of the great NW painting, I agree. Sorry to hear about K's loss. Those couch potato puppies are too cute.


Thank you for leaving a comment! I appreciate them all!
