my enormously large dog

I would like to introduce my dog.  Her name is Baloo, like the bear in “junglebook”.  She’s 1/2 great dane and half mastiff.  We got her from my friend Peter who lives up in the Pacific Northwest. She’s five years old. I love love love her.  We have to keep the front door deadbolted because she can open it.  Then she stands there, or stands on the porch.  This is her one day when I got home, just standing in the doorway.


I had a great day today. I got up early, canned 35 jars of peaches, then went and took a quilting class. I finished my first two blocks. My instructor was a bit of a perfectionist and had us get to where we were making exact 1/4″ seams, bless her heart.  I got it on the 2nd block and was then allowed to proceed.  I learned some great stuff, had fun with Robin and Stephanie and finally got to start on the quilt I’ve been waiting to start on FFOOOORRREEEVVVVEEERRRR (think sandlot, the movie).  

Then I got home an we had dinnerguests, a nice dinner and now i’m going to go and work on my 3rd block.
