Libby and Butterflies


My little darlin' Libby still has me hoppin'. Today was a bad potty day - she had SEVERAL accidents in the house. Well, tomorrow is another day....

On a happy note, she has about 'mastered' the "sit" command and the "down" command (as in lie down).

Soo anyway, one of the times I took her out today I spied this in my backyard. There are 6 swallowtail butterfly larvae on my dill weed plant. When I was teaching we used to raise these "critters" along with Painted Lady Butterflies. FUN stuff. (Be sure to click on the images for larger versions!)

Tomorrow (i hope) I will be posting some GORGEOUS BFL roving that I dyed. Sooo pretty. I can't wait to begin spinning it!!

Until next time,

Libby is Keeping Me Busy!!! has been forever since I've been here. I have been very busy - working on 5 different websites while watching this baby! This picture shows Libby at 7 weeks.

I wanted a LAP dog....but my friend, Caron, talked me into on of the pups her dog had. Caron's dog is part Bouvier and part great pyrenees. That's the mom's side. The dad is a mix of border collie, lab and possibly some retriever. (Google any one of these dogs - especially the mom - to see how much this pooch will NOT be a lap dog!!!)

My dogs, Codie and Katie are beginning to get used to Libby. Oh, we named her Liberty because she was born on the 4th of July. We just call her Lib or Libby for short.

The picture below was taken after Libby and her sister went kayaking. (BTW, Libby is on the left.)
They seemed to like kayaking pretty well. Both girls swam beside our boats for a short while then slept as we paddled on a calm lake.

Well, I've gotta get back to work but before I do, i haveta tell ya.... I have something new on my needles... I'm making some fingerless gloves out of my hand dyed, homespun yarn. I'll post a picture soon. :)
