Total Eclipse of the Heart

Did everyone get to enjoy the beautiful Lunar Eclipse last night? The dogs and I had a perfect view from our front door. The so-called photos I managed don't even come close to doing justice to just how perfectly we saw it... our digital camera simply doesn't like zooming in on a black sky (and don't even suggest the "night" setting - that made for ghostly blurbs that I could've probably sold to the National Enquirer as "UFO Visits Southern NH" photos). Here's my time line of photos from about 9:15 until 10:20 pm last night...

The dogs loved that Mommy wanted to keep popping outside last night, despite the arctic, hell-froze-over bitter temps. They didn't understand why the heck I was pointing the flashy thing up in the dark sky though, so in between trips outside we took pictures with their Valentine's from the Dogs on Thursday valentine swap. Thank you to everyone who sent my kids a card! Here's their loot...

Cards

Which Inspector #1 and Inspector #2 promptly had to sniff out...

They each picked a favorite to pose with. This was Lola's pick and that's her nosey brother sticking his head over it doing the "take a picture of ME" thing...

I think Sophie has a secret crush on Chan's Mugsy... she kept trying to kiss him!

After getting in Lola's picture, Teutul
sniffed out this one as his favorite...

Zeus picked this one... Think he's
got a thing for chic little doggies?

Sophie had to take a peak too...
maybe she had a previous couture lifestyle?

Even though it is doggy Thursday, I wanted to share my Clapotis progress. I worked on it some more at knitting guild last night...

I'll leave you with this Thought For The Day: Has your knitting blog gone to the dogs too? I have noticed that I get more hits & comments on Thursdays, as opposed to any other day! Even when I post long knitting content, there are just a few comments. I think the furbabies are taking over! In fact, as I'm flipping thru my recently uploaded photos on Flickr, I see that I have at least several months days worth of new dog photo content... but I'll keep that to share with you later. I'm battling some awful sneezy, achey, sore throat cold again and figure this post is already long enough, right? Happy Woofy, Yappy Day... now go give all your furbabies scratchies!!

I'm so glad your babies loved their Valentine's Day cards. Cute pics and yes, I have way more hits when I post pictures of Grover than any other time. Go figure.

I'm insanely jealous. I'm buying yarn like crazy, but can't settle on anything for "clappy." How's the silk going?

Mugsy is quite the ladies' man. I'm rather flattered!!

I guess we should really admit that we have dog blogs with other things popping in here and there, occasionally knitting related! Hope you're feeling better.

Cute pics of the pups and their Valentines.

My blog gets more hits on puppy day too...does that mean they are more interesting than we are??

The doggies are truly enjoying their Valentines as did my dogs. Its fun seeing the one we sent there with your dogs!

Have fun with your Clapotis! Starting a new prject is always so exciting!

It was too cloudy here to see the eclipse. Looks like your view was great!

Roscoe and Mosby were jealous when they saw all the great Valentine's your kids received. Now they're mad at me for not participating. I keep telling them we will next year.

love your clappy yarn, I took a day off from mine, I had the urge to start something new again

Your pups are so cute sniffin' out their cards. Love it. I don't know - more hits with the dogs, I get equally as many when I actually have a finished garment that I've sewn. I used to be called "G Marie Sews" but I took the sews out since I do everything. g

My card is on it's way I promise. :) I'm so behind on getting to the post office. :)

The pictures are wonderful!! I love all the cards that were sent. Mine are going out tomorrow!! I promise. I've had them printed since before my surgery but took them out of the envelopes this weekend so I could add that they are late. :)

It's funny that I get the most visits during DOT too!
