Doggone Thursday


Being a beach dog is hard work. Mugsy has slept in some of the most bizarre positions this week. Here, he's propped up on about three pillows, nearly vertical. He didn't even really wake up when the flash went off. He's gone everywhere with us, and will be as sorry as we are to load up later today and head home. The good news is that our re-entry into the real world will only consist of Friday, and then we get a weekend. (Anyone for a couple more days in OBX?)
I'll show photos and do a full report later, but the Fred socks are done, and I've started MJ's (mother inlaw) Jaywalkers, which I hope to finish for her birthday this Sunday. I'm loving the pattern and the Knitpicks Felici yarn! My first attempt at lace ended in frustration; I'm just not loving the Bryspun circs, at least not with lace. Of course, that also could have been the Knitting God's way of making sure I work on the MJ Jays...
I'm doing laundry while the Knight and the little prince slumber on. I predict it will be mid afternoon before we pull out, with one last trip to Knitting Addiction to tide me over until next time, which I hope isn't too far in the future.

Poor thing is tuckered out! LOL It looks like y'all have had a wonderful time and some much needed relaxation. Be careful going home!

it's the salt air that tires one out. Enjoy the rest of the time there!

What a sweet picture. He looks all tuckered out! Safe trip home. I like to leave early too, to have a few days home to pull myself together.

that's so cute! I love it when Amy's dogs are tired from their long walks. They look so happy.

He looks so adorable! And I love the pictures of him running on the beach :D

Sounds like you all had a great time. Can't wait to hear more and see the finished Fred socks!

He was wore out from all that running down the beach. That is hard work.
