q is for


ivory quahog.

and quahog chowder.

my favorite quahog chowder is at the atlantic cafe on nantucket. on a cold windy rainy day, the a.c.'s chowder is heavenly.

now that i've recovered from the moth madness, marina is on the needles. luckily for me, a friend in australia decided she wasn't going to ever knit her marina, so she is mine all mine! thanks beryl :-)

the colors are hard to photograph. marina reminds me of a pendleton blanket.

madaket waits at the window every afternoon for dd to get home from school. isn't she sweet?

i love the way she lays with her legs out like an otter :-)

shotsie in her normal position,laying the bed, on top of the pillows. what a life!

saturday sky for sandy. sorry, but blogger won't let me upload the bloody photo.

thanks for all the kind wing-of-the-moth words! manise, ann, lene, and judy, i can't figure out a way to email a thanks, so thanks! dee and chris, i'm glad you won :-)

At our house, we call any dog lying with belly on ground and legs stretched out behind a "flying frog". :)

Tell Maddie sitting like that is not very lady like.

Looks like you are off and running with Marina. You've already passed me by.

Yum. We New Englanders love our chowder.

I can't figure out how dog hip joints DO that.

Oh, Vanessa! The dogs are just too sweet! Out pooch sits very awkwardly all the time too, man, how I wish I had some of that in me sometimes!

Marina is going to be stunning!

Your doggy looks too cute with his legs sprawled out like that :-)

MMmmmmmmmmmmandaket...she and Tank would make a perfect silly pair. He lies on his back like that. What is it about Labs that makes the the Sillies of the world? Must be the Wiggle Butt Dance.
Hey, is Beryl knitting with her Petal? Tough life, you inheriting that sweater to finish...

Mmmmm, quahog chowder sounds delish. Madaket is a sweet girl to wait so patiently for DD. I'm looking forward to seeing Marina in about two hours, Ms. Flame Fingers.
