Finitiative is one of Bernie's words...meaning actually finish finishing some projects. I exercised some finitiative this week by finish finishing these 8 ornaments and  grafting two socks!  I am pretty proud of myself!
 Here are a couple of shots of Paddy and Mollie being fierce , then relaxing after playing together  before bed the other night.

I was on my way to visit Joyce this week, a little later than usual,  when I was slowed down on the back road by a flock of about 2 dozen wild turkeys. They usually spend the early morning hours across the road in my neighbours field   but then disappear for the rest of the day. That day I found out where they go...most of them were across the road already but about 5 or 6 decided they needed a more leisurely crossing, knowing of course that I would wait for them...which I did...and where were they headed? Why to Sharon's back yard of course for their mid morning brunch of whatever treat she sprinkled out for them.I was wishing I had my camera with me but alas I did not. Trust me it is very cool to see these wild animals up close and heading for their next meal!

Your stitching and finishing is gorgeous!

Love the pictures of the dogs, they are too cute! My dogs do that too! It's SO much fun to watch them play like that!

You did a fabulous job on the finishing Ann! I'm trying to do exactly the same thing right now. I have several stitched ornaments from last year that I haven't done a thing with.
I used to pass the wild turkeys on my way to work each morning. On occasion I used to have to honk at them to get them moving!
