Busy, busy, busy

Today I spent way too much time trying to hem a pair of pants. What a chore! All the measuring, cutting, pinning, sewing and ironing. It would have been so much easier to take them to the tailors but I always end up telling myself, "Oh, I can do this, no problem."

I did manage to get some other things done; the laundry, some cleaning, and even some errands. The one thing I didn't do is take Otis and Riley for a walk. By the afternoon they were running around the house in circles like little maniacs, sliding on rugs and jumping on furniture. Once they were tuckered out they found a spot to rest.
Tomorrow, we definitely go for a walk!

Look at those eyes!

I felt the same yesterday. Did not get home from work until about 9:00, still had grading to do, so Milo had to settle for some cuddling instead mouse on the string fun. :)

Sylvia didn't get a walk either. It was so bitterly cold and she refuses to go out unless she is 'desperate'..
Which she was at 3.00 am..!
There is a long story to this little episode, so I'll save it for a post. I hope Otis and Riley enjoy their walk today, and you too..!

Hi Donna,
I found a good taylor bout 6 months ago and wondered why in the world I never used one before! I get so frustrated sewing. And I never could find clothes that fit so I wouldn't buy them. Now, know I can go to my taylor, it is so much easier to shop!

Love your tulips from the previous post!

Well, Donna and Penny, if we lived closer I could have come to your rescue.......when I'm not playing.... that's what I do for my spending money. I supported my kids for 12 years as a single mother doing alterations about 60 hours a week......but at least I was lucky to stay home with my I just putter at it :-) Rosie

Oh my gosh, what cute pictures! Hope you are getting that walk in. We're getting snow and freezing rain here in NJ today. Yuck!

Hi, Donna, you are brave to tackle hemming! I always get my mom to do that.

Your doggies are SO cute! And those are beautiful tulips. I just got some today from my hubby for Valentines, so they should be nice & pretty for the day.

Hi Donna
Your dogs are so cute! I once worked for a lady who had a dog just like yours and she would jump up and grab food off the kitchen counter. I was there one time and saw her jump up and grab a donut off a plate that was too close to the edge of the counter! I wouldn't have believe it if I hadn't seen it myself.
I like Penny's suggestion about the sewing. Hope you have a great day.

I hate hemming too, but with four rapidly growing kids, taking hems up and down is one of those things I have to do.

I love those brown doggy eyes.
