Congratulations....

to the L.A. Kings!!!!!

You may not know, but I'm a total hockey nut.  A Wing Nut, really, I love my Detroit Red Wings...but they were eliminated early, so I was rooting for the L.A. Kings to win the coveted Stanley Cup.  The hardest trophy to win in any sport, and they did it!

One thing....it's really hard to do any hand sewing while you're watching an exciting hockey game.  I kept stabbing myself.  Especially when I was yelling.  But I'm almost done with Michelle's Irish Blessing, I should be putting it together for quilting this week, yay!  It's been very, very hot here over the weekend, I didn't do much sewing at all.  The weather should break tonight after some storms.

Going to leave you with a couple of pics of our pup, Abby - she LOVES squirrels, they sit in the tree and laugh at her.  Hope they don't get too confident!  Sometimes they sit just over the fence and chatter at her.

She doesn't talk back much....

Off to try to sleep now, it's still quite hot and humid, I may have to take an ice pack to bed with me!  Have a great week!

I never got into watching sports, but do enjoy seeing local teams win. My cats watch anything that moves and have gone through the screens a few times, lol.

My hubby is a Chicago Black Hawks fan... even though we live in Australia and he is Canadian by birth... go figure!
Cheers :)

Wow that's a big trophy!! You'd have to be a super Hockey star to be waving it around like that! Your dog is so cute looking at squirrels. I like the idea of them teasing her, cheeky squirrels!

Very humid here in NC too, and rain all the time! I like the idea of an ice pack in bed. I hate waking up sweating (that isn't ladylike is it?). Hoping for an early Fall (already).

Mickie said...

We were watching the game too, but my husband is a Flyers fan. Anyway, we have that humidity going on here. Love the idea of the ice pack! Abby is so sweet :) Hugs, Mick

I know what you mean about trying to sew and watch an exciting game. That's what I did last week watching OKC beat the Spurs in basketball. I'm from OKC and it's the first time they've been in the finals. It got a little animated around here. HA.

That is an enormous trophy.
Abby is lovely, but I hope the squirrels stay well away.

I love Abby's coloring. Our dog Suzi tries to catch the birds that love to walk around our yard. No squirrels here but I'm sure she would love to chase them too lol.


It's been pretty hot and humid here lately too. Maybe you need to sleep with one of those cooling ties around your neck. If you don't choke yourself lol. We found them at our local Dollar Tree and at $1 each I grabbed five. I can't make them that cheap. My Son (13) loves to wear it around the house. We have a couple hot spots where the fans and AC just don't seem to reach.

Abby looks like a sweetheart. I grew up with those kid of dogs---I really like them. Hope you can stay cool!!!!

Mary said...

Hi Allie! Oh Abby is such a beauty! Our Abby used to go crazy over the squirrels too - however, pugs make so much noise snorting when they run that the squirrels have plenty of fair warning when they're headed their way :) Hopefully your weather has cooled off a bit. I'm pining for October...

Abby is a beauty. I bet it's fun to watch her and those squirrels. As for the hockey - it's great fun to watch. I just love going to live games.

Sue said...

I started out the finals trying to stitch but I gave up pretty quickly. The games were so fast paced that I needed to pay attention.

My Bailey tells Abby "Don't give up, those squirrels get over confident and start coming closer. I caught one that came way down the tree to yell at me".

Sue said...

Hmmm I think I'd find watching hockey a bit boring.....now watching squirrels up a tree, now that's exciting!

Use to watch the Admirals when I lived in VA Beach. Fun sport for sure.

Squirrels are trying to talk Abby into burying their nuts for the winter. It would speed up production.

Mama Pea said...

Wing nut. Snort. I like that! I would love to be a hockey fan. Just no time. I enjoy hockey but don't know the game well enough. I sure love your dog. I love that breed. So elegant and beautiful!

Unknown said...

Hey, that dog isn't crazy, or I hope not, grin, I talk to the squirrels and bunnies and birds all the time in my yard, grin. Barbara

I too love my Red Wings but was excited to see the kings win. Cool to have found a MI quilt blogger. Will you be attending and blogging about the AQS show here in Grand Rapids?
