Testing for travel

I am leaving for Italy in a few days and I wanted to practice doing a blog on my mini IPad. I have been packed for three days but now see it is supposed to rain most of the time so I am thinking of fewer capris and more pants. I love planning a trip. I love doing all the research and making reservations. I do not like trying to decide what to pack. I am usually wrong. So, to compensate, and I take too much. I always get nervous when it is time to leave. I have a great time one there though!!! Looking so forward to this on! The friends, the coffee, the apero spritzers, did I mention the coffee????

I have been helping to foster a six month old rescue. He was rescued because of neglect and he has to be crated for a good part of the day, so I offered relief. OMG six month old puppies never stop! He has the attention span of a gnat. He is into everything, including my yarn. He got on the kitchen counter and was carrying scissors around the house. I lined up some cans on the edge of the counter on a mat, thinking if he pulled it down, the cans would scare him. Wrong again. He walked through the house with a can of dog food. This afternoon he got in the shower with me. He will make a great dog if those around him live through his puppyhood. Oh, he is supposedly black lab and hound. His bark is definitely hound. I have to think there is also a bigger ancestor in there, maybe Great Dane?

I apologize for the size of the photo, but I cannot figure how to make it smaller on the IPad. He might look cute, but that was momentary. Anyone want a dog?

I found this great site that sells craft kits, and I am really considering the one for this afghan.

Each month for a year they send you a kit with everything you need to make part of it. I guess the last one helps you sew it all together. They send all materials and instructions. They also give you access to instructional videos. It ends up to be expensive, but if it works out, it will be worth it. I will have the pattern and can make others. Cannot imagine how many colors are in there.

Not a very exciting blog, but at least I know I can do it from Italy.
