Looking back

Taking a look back....

One year ago around this time I was doing some crocheting and sewing



This year I haven't been doing any crafting.

Two years ago around this time Duke and I were snuggled in on the couch reading a good book


This year I do all my reading on the kindle and Gibbs can't sit still long enough to share a book. He does however like to chew the pages.

I've got a new schedule at work so I'm a little off right now. I'm working on Sundays and have Mondays off. This is going to take some getting used to

The last photo is adorable! Best wishes with the new schedule, Ann. Have a great week.

Hi Ann, you're not alone...looking back I can see I did a lot more crafty things last year too! Oh well. I'm sure Gibbs will learn to love sitting with you reading a good book sooner or later ;-)
Oh no, working Sundays is a bummer.

Marg said...

So does that mean you have Sat. and Mon. off. That will be a little strange. Hope it works for you.

Lin said...

Ugh, a new schedule is bound to keep you confused as to what day it is.

I miss our buddy, Duke. I'm sure Gibbs helps with the pain of memories though. Christmas ought to be really fun with a puppy around!

Have a nice Thanksgiving week!

I get too much done on Sundays, like eat and eat more. Hope you are prepared for the holiday. I had a sweet potatoe dinner roll recipe to try and someone oven baked my taters I was going to use into fries.

Sandra said...

your life has been topsy turvy every since Duke went over the rainbow bridge. i hope everything evens out soon and that Gibbs learns to read soon.. BOL....

Christine said...

I too sympathise with you all the changes of the last few months. Hoping you get around to crafting soon!

Ginny said...

Awww, sweet Duke! I still have his magnet that you sent me, and I put it on the fridge. People ask who is the cute dog. Gibbs will settle down when he is out of the puppy stage. I would think that Monday is better to have off than Sunday. Because all the stores and offices are open!

Ginny said...

P.S. I only now thought....why did they change your days off; is it just for the holidays?

Sheryl Hastings said...

This year sure did go fast! Nice to see the pic of Duke. I think you'll like your new work schedule. Back when I worked at the print shop, we were always off on Sunday and Thursday. It was nice having a weekday off so I could meet various appointments and such that I couldn't do on a weekend. It will take some time to get used to though.

Good luck with the schedule change...hope it was something you wanted to do!

Hello! Duke is ADORABLE!! Best of luck with the schedule change at work :)

Sandee said...

You know how I love Duke. Always will. Gibbs will settle down at some point. You'll see.

Breaking up your days off doesn't sound like a good idea. I'm just saying.

Have a great day. My best to Gibbs. :)

Chewing on Kindle pages might not be good for his teeth. Oh, and by the way, NO CRAFTING ON MY BIRTHDAY! YOU HAVE AN INCREDIBLE CAKE TO BAKE!!

BeadedTail said...

Things sure have been changing around there. We miss Duke but Gibbs does make us smile. It'll be nice having Monday off but it'd be better if you didn't have to work Sunday! :) (I don't like to work!)

Grace said...

Split days off? That's not so rejuvenating...Temporary I hope?

Reeni Pisano said...

It's good to see that sweet boy Duke's face! It must be strange to be off on a Monday!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

How we miss Duke...but Gibbs is such a doll face too. Can't help but love 'im!! A book chewer huh?

I'm not sure I'd like working on Sunday. That WOULD take a lot of getting used to for me.

Sharkbytes said...

As long as Gibbs doesn't take to chewing on the Kindle!

Ida said...

Duke looks so cute there while you were reading. I had to chuckle about Gibbs not sitting still long enough to read and how he likes to chew the pages, that's a puppy for you.
Happy Thanksgiving.
