***Picture This***

You're driving down the road to pick up one of those silly cone collars, because your dog that has just has leg surgery has popped one of her stitches during the night, but since it's still holding the doctor just wants her in the silly collar when your sleeping so she won't pop any more and lick them open. (it was just the very bottom one and I'm able to protect it with a butterfly closer and a good wrap of the blanket around said leg.) Anyway back to driving down the road, and all of a sudden you see a police car with lights blaring coming strait at you. Oh at first you feel that little bit of shock and "uh oh, what did i do?", then you remember your not guilty of anything you're just on your way to get a silly cone collar for you dog that popped a stitch during the night. Then you see it! The police car is escorting someone. A funeral? No. A diplomat? you do live near a major military base, but no. Oh my, it's a motorcycle gang! about a hundred of them, Well maybe not quit that many, but a very large gang of motorcycles none the less. And who should be leading the motorcycle gang in all their leather and bushy bearded glory, you ask? Well I'll tell you, but you certainly won't believe me when I do.............. It was none other than Good Ole' Saint Nick! Yes lady's and gentlemen Santa Was the leader of the Motorcycle Gang! Man did I wish I had my camera. bye, heather

With ever christmas card I write.........

and this fun pile represents everything Christmas/Winter I own and for all you etsy-landers it means my Christmas card sets and winter crafts for the shop will be on there way! but first I'm spending some quality sofa time with my girl, Winnipeg.
as you can see she is resting comfortably. Well if your not in the know, Wednesday night she broke her back leg. Thursday morning I took her to Dr. Nun (best Vet ever!) and he fixed her right up for me.
it was a clean brake of the femur bone and required a pin to put it back together. So I had to leave her over night for surgery and she'll need to have it removed in another 6-8 weeks.
I was kind of excited to see she did not need a cast and the doctor said he would like her to start using her leg as soon as possible although strenuous activity is out of the question till the doctor gives the OK.
Today she has been pretty out of it from the surgery drugs, but I have had her stand and walk a little for going potty and eating, but she is not really wanting to use that legs or be up much at all for that matter. She is having a hard time laying down by her self and needs help from me, its really the only times today I've heard her whine, but she can get up by her self. I found this out when I had her laying down confined to the bedroom floor (I was to scared to leave her up high on the couch while I was gone even though she does not seem to want to go anywhere) while I ran to the post office and when I got back she was standing in front of the door and I bumped her leg as I walked in to check on her and she gave a whine for that. but she was on the floor and she does not seem to be brave enough for that from up high.
She has just been so inspiring to me through all this. When it happened she whined for a minute right after it happened and after that she was over it. When I took her to the vet she just walked around on three legs like she was her normal happy self wagging her tail and getting pets from passer-byes, she even banged her head on the door to the exam room and still kept wagging that tail and being happy. It's like nothing fazes her at all and I really wish I could be like that, tough as nail and sweet as sugar at the same time. I guess that's why I'm so fond of this little pup.

"and what is heather doing today?" you ask ......

Well just as I have been for the past few weeks, I'm working on more stock for that little shop of mine. last night i spent the evening doing this:then once I finished packaging my little pretties. I found a little time to do this: which will go up for sale in the shop shortly and once I'm finished playing here on my little journal of this and that, I have a desk full of notepads and card set to get back to. I think after I get done with this round of goody's it's time for me to work on some Christmas cards and gift tag sets. fun! fun! fun! don't you all think. Well then since the day is short and my work is long, I guess it's time for me to say goodbye and get back to work, plus I'm done with my lunch ;P But i think I'll leave you with this picture of my cutey bug Winnie that J. took the other night.
bye, heather

and the crazy begins.................

Today I feel depressed at the impending doom of another holiday season. They never go my way. I wish I could fall asleep and wake up in the spring.
