After considerable talking and measuring and ciphering, hubby and son were off to the big box lumber store and several hundred dollars later, we have another project!
This beautiful lady is Her Royal Highness, the Princess Stella. Now Stella loves to play ball. Stella is addicted to playing ball. You might say she lives to play ball. The night before every one had been taking their turn throwing the ball for her, and she'd have it back at your feet in about 17 seconds, ready for the next throw. Arms were getting pretty sore from throwing, and after a pretty strenuous session of fetch, Stella was told that it was enough for now, and Chris put the ball up on the rafters of the pergola. Yesterday morning when Stella woke up she went right to the back door, and when I let her out she went immediately to the spot and sat, staring up at the corner where her ball was waiting for the next round. She is the funniest grand dog!
These orange candles on my new table topper look like Thanksgiving to me. And I am being very thankful right now. Having Chris and Amy with us for a few days, having one of my kids at my supper table each night, can't help but remind me of God's wonderful blessing of family. And I am thankful.
