She didn't come home

No puppy. Unfortunately the lovely girl Nicole and I went to visit and evaluate in Quebec didn't suit us. She was a very nice puppy, but wasn't meant to be ours. We're disappointed, but that's how it goes. Her brother would've done it for us but failed miserably on the uterus requirement. Twas not meant to be. So, we wait patiently yet again and see what may happen in the future.

Nothing new going on here since we've mostly been on the road and in Quebec for the last several days and left our schedules wide open to spend time with a new poodle puppy. The driving was a succession of thunderstorms and tiring but we're glad to be home and made it back in time for Nicole's Kung Fu class last night.

I'll spend the next few hours breaking down the puppy preparations here. Baby gates, puppy's crate etc. and put them away for future arrivals. If nothing else, the house got a thorough scrubbing and floors, crates and most any surface that can tolerate it was washed down with a bleach solution so I do have a super clean set up here. I'll spend the rest of today relaxing from all the driving, put up my feet and knit.

I'm waiting on this Raspberry Bubble merino/silk fingering yarn to arrive in my mailbox from Plucky. This knit will be for me. I rarely knit for myself, but I absolutely am lusting for a Baktus scarf like Claudia's. Definitely go check out Claudia and Mr Puffy's post on How to Barbecue California Style, I was drooling reading it and her dad Vern is a master at the craft. Excuse me - I need to go make up some of his chicken seasoning and buy a chicken for tomorrow...

Sorry about the puppy, but waiting is the right thing to do.
How do you get your hands on Plucky? It goes at the blink of an eye.
Beautiful scarf!

Hi Anne,
Plucky is a hot commodity! Sarah is my favourite indy dyer. I haven't had very much luck in the etsy updates, although this past update I got lucky.
Lately I've picked up some gorgeous Plucky skeins on Rav from destashes.

So sorry you didn't get the puppy! I had a standard poodle when I was a kid. She was so smart and sweet!

You are so sweet ~ I'm glad the BBQ wet your appetite!

I'm so very sorry that you were disappointed in the pup. It must have taken a lot of willpower to walk away. But it has to be right when it's such a big commitment.

Now it's back to the fun of searching and planning and a little window of leisure time too.

Awe, the right puppy will come along before you know it.

I'm still a somewhat selfish knitter. Unless I start a project with someone else in mind I have a hard time not falling in love with something. I expect this will change after I have more than 3 year of knitting under my belt. Well, that and a closet full of sweaters, scarves and hats ;)
