Crazy as a Loom

Another day.

Well, we are adjusting here.  Naya to us, and we to her.

She is, for the most part, an easy girl to be around.  She loves to snuggle, she only goes out to pee 2-3 times a day.  She is not a fan of our northern climate, I'm afraid.

She does not bark.  She does not bother the cats.

She is a beggar when food is around.

The rescue told me she had to be kept fairly quiet for 30 days, no exercise, because she was treated for heart worm in December.  So I looked at the medical records they sent with her, found the med she was treated with, Diroban, and did some research.
I went directly to the Diroban web site, and they clearly state that the dog is not to exercise for 12 weeks, NOT 30 days.

So, I guess the weather is a plus, since she really doesn't like to be out in it.

I'm going to make an appointment with my own vet, to let her meet him, and get a baseline.

When Lois and I are weaving, she isn't far away.

That's Roy's blanket.   I know he would be happy, I think he would like her a lot.

On the weaving front, I am still on the towel warp, but will soon be done with it.  I still want to have more towels, but wondering if I should take a break and do something else.

Fabric yardage?  Clothes?

This is a Möbius shawl that L wove, I just put it together today.

Sometimes, I weave towels, when the inspiration for something else just won't appear.
You can't force that muse.
You either wake up in the night with a vision, or you don't.

I do have this one crazy idea.......I have this bag of scraps, bits of things I have woven, left overs, all different textures and colors.
Then I have this CAPE that I bought from the Salvation Army store.......and I have this thought that if I cut the pieces into various shapes, I could kind of "crazy quilt" them on the cape, with embroidery floss and some cool stitches.
This picture is not complete in my head, which is why I haven't started it, so if you all have any ideas, suggestions, WARNINGS, please tell me!!!

My list for myself this month includes INVENTORY,  INCOME TAX INFORMATION COLLECTION, photo shoot of clothes on hand to get online, and a new rug warp upstairs.

I thought about Quick Books again.  I haven't had it in a year, since my computer crashed.  But when I checked on the cost, yikes, I thought twice.   They start you off at $30/month, for the first year, then it jumps to $50 a month forever.

I don't really need that much accounting, so I am looking for other options.

It was 57 degrees today here, or more......with a lot of rain, and fog.  Tomorrow we are back to freezing cold.  It's a huge tease, that's what it is.

I don't like to talk .....or honestly, even think, about politics.  But seriously, when I think of SHITHOLES, I think of our once respected WHITE HOUSE.

And with that, I will close.

Naya is lovely. Bennett had heart worm, they treated it with an inter muscular shot of ivermectin I believe
but again, this was many years ago. The quiet time was 30 days. He was not a naturally quiet dog at that age....
Let's hope the next person to occupy the WH will restore dignity back to the office.

I like your idea for the cape....just let it keep simmering in your mind. I'm sure it will all come together.

My Frasier had heartworm treatment and indeed I was to keep him at minimal exercise for three months. His was about five years ago, the dual shots in the back muscles - We just didn't go on long walks, etc. He's a fairly mellow dog so it wasn't a difficult process. He has been heartworm negative ever since, they check once a year and I give him the monthly chew tablet March through October. (no mosquitos around here November through March)

oooh, go with that fabulous idea! What fun! Perfect winter escape project.

She is a sweet dog, and it seems odd to me that the vet would be no negligent as to how to treat her. Glad you're going to follow up with your own vet. And I too think Roy would approve of her. :-)

She's so cute, Hilary. I hope all goes well for her as she adjusts to her new life. I have to say your line on S...holes will stay with me. I'll be happy to see him get on his way at the end of term.

Hi, I met you a few years ago, were a couple from Evanston, IL. I still have that beautiful red rag rug I bought after you graciously gave us a tour of the place when we were vacationing. My husband, the accountant, said some of his clients use something called Freshbooks, which they love. He also said there should be versions of quickbooks that are less expensive depending what features you actually need. Also he'd be happy to talk with you to give you some advice to maybe help you decide on what version you might need. Free of charge, of course. If you want to call him, let me know and I will send you his cell phone thru email.

Naya looks adorable!

Catching up on your blog as I have been away. Just had to agree with you on your WH comment, love it, so true (unfortunately).

i am not very literate about accounting apps/programs but isnt Quicken an easy/inexpensive one?

as for that cape .. it sound fabulous

also i keep saying this and soon i will actually act on it but if you're up for a quilting project let me know .. i am not asking for a freebie i am interested in paying ...

Quicken isn’t a complete package for a business as it has no balance sheet. I use Quickbooks but do not pay a monthly fee. I paid a one time fee and it lives on my desktop computer. I don’t want my business info out on the cloud.y
