Small miracles happen every day. Outside your window, with each soaring bird, the chipmunk that catches your eye, a small flower that appears in a previously barren spot, found time, a project that engages both mind and body, a well chopped onion.
They are all around us if we only take the time to see, hear, feel and note them. Life erupts in the fine details and so often we fly right past them waiting for the big stuff. Yesterday was simply chock full of those little special details. Minutiae.
The warp is done and ready to be wound on.
It looks very much like the previous warp with the silk sari. I substituted a novelty yarn, Tahki Lucky, which happily was also 50% off. And it is strong, 100% nylon.
We had to do a little proactive loom preservation.
Princess Stella just couldn't resist the plastic tie knobs on the treadles. It's easy enough to add and subtract treadles on Hannah. They just sit on an individual cradle under the foot rest.
I know I'm just doing plain weave on this scarf, so really only need the two still tied up for tabby.
We also had our senior & baby combined vet appointment yesterday morning.
Dennett had blood drawn for another liver panel and I am happy (read delighted, overjoyed and grateful beyond words) to report that the milk thistle supplement has indeed made a difference. His panel is just about normal in that area. Now there are still anomalies, but they are holding just where they are. They fall into " it is what it is" category. He's all set until fall unless we have any changes.
Stella also had her first look see. I'm happy to report we have a healthy fit puppy. Good joints, no loose knees (luxating patella) which is common in many small breed dogs. She weighs a whopping 3.6 pounds, which while I thought her maybe a little skinny, Dr. Beth assured me she was at a perfect weight. Much better to have a fit puppy than a pudgy one for growing bones.
Stella handled herself well, relaxed with strangers picking her up, played when they initiated it, let Dr. Beth clip her teeny tiny toe nails and Vet Tech Nic take her temp all with a pleasant and winsome demeanor. She thought the wormer was just wonderful stuff. She'll go back in two week for her second puppy shot. The first shot was given by the breeder the day before she found her way home with me.
She is also doing great with her schedule and Uncle Smoochie is doing a grand job of entertainment every day. At the end of morning play time this is how they usually are.
I can pick her up and put her in the crate all sleepy and go out and do my outside chores without worry. I do so love small miracles.
