Why O' why would anyone wrap their fingers in tinfoil?
A few weeks ago before I took my trip to Williamsburg, as a treat for losing 10 pounds, I had my nails done. How I made it to almost 50 years without ever having as much as a manicure surprises even me......however....
As much as I enjoyed having nice nails, I just can't get past the feeling of something fake on my nails. That New England Yankee side of me kicked in though and I did manage to leave them on for almost 3 weeks until they got to the point where I needed to either have them filled or removed though and I opted for removing them.
As I sat down with a bottle of acetone thinking it would be easy~peasy........let me tell you grrls......it's not! I spent 2 hours getting those suckers off...yikes! Next 10 pounds, I think it is going to be just a manicure and a polish for me :-)
The rest of my weekend was filled with better things, once finished with the barn chores. A lot of knitting and spinning was done and finished (photos coming). In addition to the knitting, little Miss Cleo, Hannah and I went for a walk in the village, searching for the perfect place for a photo shoot. The weather was unseasonably warm for us up here in the Mountains, which made it hard to want to stay inside.
Every year the dog club I belong to, puts out a lovely yearbook. It just so happens that Cleo's breeder is the editor of the yearbook and is a fantastic photographer in her own right. (but she lives in Texas). I wanted to have just the right picture of her to make not only me happy, but her breeder proud to have bred her.
Let me tell you just how hard it is to get 12 pounds of wiggle worm to sit still for even a minute. Over the last few months I have tried and tried...even a professional photographer tried and failed, but I think we finally were able to get 2 pictures that capture this little itchy britch's spirit :-)
Now the question is....which picture do I use?
