I shouldn't say this, but I've felt that my job was relatively safe. I can't imagine that any one else would want to drive down to some dicey neighborhoods to work in not the best conditions. So much for the glamorous life of a published author. But, the dollar doesn't go as far, so I'm trying to be more careful about what gets consumed. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that my ten year old vehicle with 177, 000+ miles keeps running. One expense every month that won't be given up is Piccolo's grooming. It's one of the reasons why she looks so remarkable. It's nice that a dog that gets cuddled all the time smells good, too. Wearing sweaters when she goes out also helps with keeping her clean.
Piccolo actually uses the quilt I made for her. It was such a satisfying project to make, that another one, a kind of mother/daughter thing, if you will, is in the works. Once I download my camera card, I'll show the one I made for David's dog.
Off to knit down my stash.........................
