Sew...Snow Day!

It is snowing like crazy and the roads are slicker than you know what.  Glass hills are not fun to drive over.  So, I am home.  What shall I do?  huh...got me!  {grin}

I have declared this a SEW day!

This next part is kinda wordy.  But, so worth the few minutes it'll take you to read it.  

Tag had a lovely birthday...thank you for all your comments and well-wishes.  A little story for you...last week, Heidi (coworker) brought in the most delish peanut butter cookies for us all to gorge ourselves on.  And, we did.  Yummy.  They're so not on my list of foods, but...what can I say?  Peanut Butter Cookies!!!  

So.  I said to Heidi, "Heidi, Tag's birthday is on Monday and I'm wondering if you would bake some peanut butter cookies for him."  She looked at me like I was nuts, and I thought she would say something like, "are you nuts?"  Instead, she said, "Jacque, do you know how busy I am this weekend?  We're going to a Super Bowl party and I have to make a dip.  Plus...blah, blah, blah."  Just so ya know, she didn't really say 'blah, blah, blah', but what she really said isn't relevant to my story.  I told her that I thought she could bake the pb cookies while she was doing everything else.  So, we kinda left it there.  Well, yesterday was Monday...Tag's birthday...guess what Heidi brought to work?  (I tell ya...my coworkers are so fun!)  Yup...peanut butter cookies just for Tag!  A couple dozen!  Nothing in them that he cannot have, right?  I did take them around and shared them with the others...a treat to celebrate Tag's birthday.  ha!  I ended up with about a dozen to bring home.  Now, remember, these are for Tag.  Not me!  Though, gotta tell ya, Tag loves to share with his mama.  I've had about 4 so far...but so has he.

Here is a photo of Tag about to enjoy a peanut butter cookie.  Please note.  It took me at least 5 minutes to get this shot...gotta get the pose with the dog in a down position, with his head down, with a delicious-smelling cookie close to him.  Tag has always been very good at 'leave it'.  I think, though, that he thought I was never going to let him have the cookie.  But, I did.  Tried to get a photo of him eating it, but his big head got in the way.  

Anyway.  Here's what I got...

That's it for now...I have some heart day quilty things to make, so I best get sewing! 

Hope you have a great day!

LOL Tag is so cute. He is looking sooo longingly at that cookie. I can almost read his mind...."Hurry up Momma, I'm hungry."

He is so good. Look at him. I wish I was that good at "leave it"!

Joanne said...

I was going to say the same thing - wish I could "leave it" - Oh that Tag - a whole dozen PB cookies for his birthday - he's a lucky boy! What a friend to make them for him! LOL Too funny that story!

Oh my goodness - a "found" sew day for you - I can just image what you are accomplishing!

Wow!!! They are wonderful pictures! That little white around his muzzle makes him very distinguished looking. It tugs at my heartstring. I have 2 with white on their muzzles. I know my Mollie will do "leave it" really well and Brodie does too, but he would have a lot of trouble leaving that yummy looking cookie!

Oh that Tag is such a good boy ;-) Pugs do not understand "leave it" when it comes to food. My fault, I know....
Pug hugs :)
