I know blog posts are supposed to be timely and such, but does it count if it ‘feels’ like I took these pictures yesterday???
I recently took pictures at a lure coursing trial and it was the first trial held in Oregon that offered the new Coursing Ability Test through AKC. This event opens the world of lure coursing to all breeds of dogs instead of just sighthounds. I am so glad AKC decided to do this because it was so much fun watching these dogs chase the plastic bunny.

and a very funny Bull Mastiff
She thought grabbing the cone at the end would be fun 🙂
Even the little dogs came out to play…
a tiny Chihuahua with a HUGE personality
This Doxie was my favorite 🙂
As always there were lots of sighthounds and they continue to take my breath when I watch them run!

All of the photos from the weekend can be seen on my That’ll Do Photography website.
No, I have not become a barista 🙂 My son is going to school 1/2 an hour from our house and he is only ther for 2 1/2 hours, so it doesn’t make sense for me to drive home just to turn around and drive back into town. I was a little overwhelmed with having to spend 2 1/2 hours in town doing something everyday!!! I am quite the homebody and I enjoy my flexible schedule – I realize now that I have taken that for granted.
I have a long list of felted items that I need to work on and my mom suggested I take my felting to Starbucks. This made me laugh at first because I am not a coffee drinker and the idea of needle felting in a coffee shop just seemed silly.
It took some gumption to pull my felting stuff out of my bag and start needle felting on Monday, but now I have become quite comfortable there. The atmosphere is pleasant and they have some wonderful breakfast items. The blueberry oat bars are awesome!!! Here is a recipe for blueberry oat bars that the creator claims to be just as good, if not better. I will have to make some this weekend.
I have accomplished a LOT with my block of undistracted time…
and today I helped at my son’s school. Along with checking stuff off my to do list, I am also educating people about wool and felting! Several people have been quite intrigued with the process.
I am looking forward to a few days at home 🙂
