Leftover Stash Throw

I had all of these extra bits of yarn and unused balls that I never found a project for so I decided to make a throw for the living room since a lot of the colours went with my living room furniture. It's just a simple ripple throw. I did some rows of sc around the throw and then a shell border.

All done

The beginning

10,000

Since Easter me and my DH have been trying to get walking in each and every day. For our anniversary I bought him a FitBit Zip. It's amazing how that inspires you to move more, when you see it increase or not throughout the day.

I find my mood is better, especially getting outdoors. You see nature every day and other cool stuff too. Some pictures from our many walks.

24th Annual RHS Dog Jog - Raising money for animals

Our family is doing the dog jog as we strongly believe in the work the RHS does with abandoned animals.

Nine years ago we bought our dog Oliver(beagle) from a pet store. This was before we knew about 'puppy mills' and how dogs are treated by some breeders. Oliver has huge anxiety issues and I know if the wrong family would have bought him from that pet store he'd have been a shelter dog waiting for someone to put the time and energy into him. Thankfully he ended up with us and we know he's special and we love him just the same.

Four years ago we wanted another dog and we decided it had to be a rescue dog. Our first visit to RHS we met our Piper a border collie lab mix. She was three months old and was there with a brother and a sister. As soon as we met her we knew she had to join our family. We've never looked back, she is the most gentle dog you'll ever meet. She grew quite big, bigger than we thought she's a tall girl and weighs anywhere from 60-70 lbs. She's full of love!

Without a place like RHS I dread to think of what would have happened to her and her siblings!
