It's Salsa Time

10 new jars of salsa.  This is our second batch of the year.  The first batch was smaller (5 jars) and so delicious that there is only one jar left.
This second batch just came out of the water canner and I'm listening to the plink plink plink of the snap lids popping.

Goodbye my sweet Mindy Moo

I've been having trouble giving up one of my dogs...and I've been dwelling on it today.  My sister is coming tomorrow to visit for the weekend..and when she leaves, she'll take Mindy with her.    Well... I think God just sent me a sign that it's the right thing to do.   

I just had to pull Ruby away from a dog fight that was happening pretty much on her lap.   It's the first time that the dogs have fought when I've been around in at least 6 months...probably a year.   
I'm pretty sure both of their eyes are OK...but there are definitely bites and bloody parts....

I always make sure fights don't happen....but... I turned around, and Ruby somehow provoked one... not on her, but between the two dogs.    

I will miss my Mindy Moo, but for her safety, and more importantly the safety of our kids, these two (otherwise wonderful) dogs must be separated :(

We are giving up Mindy instead of Myah, because Mindy seems a little afraid of our loud toddler.   She also has done wonderfully with other animals in the past, whereas Myah does NOT do well with other dogs... my sister who is taking Mindy has another dog, so Myah just couldn't go there.  Also...Mindy is very dependent...and I think she needs a companion animal..while Myah will be fine on her own I think.     My sister has 3 teenagers in the house who will be gentle and loving to little Mindy Moo.   I will miss her soooooo much.  I feel like my heart is breaking a little bit.'s pretty clear... I don't think we have a choice anymore.

A Little Knitting

I'm working on a baby sweater for a friend for the Ravelympic....oops...I mean Ravellenic's my progress.  Just the sleeves and button bands to go.
