Diva Challenge: 'Gourd'
Rick and Maria have introduced a new, official Zentangle pattern called 'Gourd' and the Diva Challenge this week is to us it in a tangle. This is really quick and crude, but I worked all day yesterday and then volunteered at the barn after so I didn't have a lot of time and needed to get the challenge and Inktober 11 done, so be kind:
Moose has been doing so well. It's like he's always lived at the house. The only thing is, he gets chilly, being from down South and all, so I had to knit him a sweater. This is just the prototype out of some yarn I had kicking around. The one I'm knitting now is Packer colors and has more of a turtleneck.
He loves to wear it and prances when he has it on. To really test it though, we hopped in the car and went to the lake last weekend. The sun in his eyes makes it dicey, but for better or worse, Dog Is My CoPilot
The sweater worked really well when we walked across the causeway but it was a little warm for basking in the sun watching Canada Geese and squirrels.
And of course, going 'nekked' is the best way to get all of the all important belly rubs in. Belly rubs in the sun are the best, but really there is no bad belly rub.
It's been amusing watching Cooper and Moose play together. One will chase the other up the stairs and then the other one is doing the chasing coming back down. Moose has more stamina than Cooper so when he gets tired, Cooper just jumps up on the nearest coffee table or his cat tree. Moose has ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA where he went. He will hunt the house over for the next 10 minutes looking for him. The only place he doesn't look is UP! But they are getting to be pretty good friends...neither of which likes to have his picture taken!
This weekend is our last Wisconsin Zentangle Coalition of the year! It's supposed to be gorgeous weather on Saturday and I'm making a bday cake as my treat to bring. Who could ask for anything more!
