Not a busy weekend

Two of the puppies are under the weather, so the weekend was not quite we had expected it to be. Bill and I had planned to wander around South Side on Saturday afternoon, poking around shops we hadn't been in before, and finding new and interesting places to return to. Instead I called the vet at 11:00 to see if we could bring Scotia in before they closed at noon. She was all stuffed up, with a chesty cough and had spit up some phlem when she was wandering around downstairs with Bill. Turns out that she may have picked up kennel cough from the groomers, even though all the dogs have been vacinated. She's now on cough pill and anti-biotics for the next ten days. Instead of South Side, we went to the bank and as we were out of "fridge" wine the liquor store. Bill found Alice White chardonnay and I picked up this....

Dyed-in-the-Wool Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough, New Zealand.
I loved the label and had to have it, not the usual way I pick my vintage but this just called out to me.
The postman brought the new "Sock Club" shipment. Connie has outdone herself this time, I love the yarn and the pattern is very sweet. I love this club, wonderful yarns every month, a few I have tried but most I haven't and it's great to find something new and exciting that you would love to use again. This month's yarn is Spunky Eclectic, dyed specifically for the the club.

I finished the "furry" chemo hats for the Children's Hospital in Boston. They are boxed up with 3 skeins of gifted sock yarn, I will have them in the post tomorrow, along with socks and a hat for Connie in Ontario. I am not a big fan of acrylic fun fur, but that is was the children asked for so that is what they are getting.
Yesterday, Banff confirmed my suspicions that he has some sort of an ear infection, violently shaking head, constant stratching and he let out a shrill yelp yesterday when Bill tickled him behind it. Called the vet again today and he's in for 5:30 today. Between the vet and my addiction to sock yarn I will never be able to travel in the ranks of the "rich and famous", ah well they probably don't have as much fun as me anyway. I mean what more excitement could there be in life than winding a skein of BMF's rocking sock yarn and casting on a pair of socks......I'm itching to get started.

Great name for a wine. I'd have had to buy that one myself if I'd seen it.
Enjoy your new wool, and I hope the children are pleased with their hats.
And I hope the pups are better soon.

That sock yarn is so lovely - a great name, I can't wait to see how it knits up! Hope the puppies are on the mend.
