When Zach and his crew were here on Memorial Day and Dax and I were playing in the “Doll Room”, he was enjoying the stuffed dogs (mostly schnauzers with a yorkie or two and a couple of pound puppies) and we had a chat about his upcoming move to a new house. He was excited because he gets to get a turtle or turtles, I’m not sure. As we talked he said he liked the dogs all right and the plastic octopus and dinosaur toy that I unearthed from a drawer, but “Do you have a turtle”? No, no turtles. As we played some more I got the question a couple more times “Do you have a turtle”? Sadly, I did not and not one to come up empty when it comes to cute 4 year olds I decided to knit him one.
So, when Dax comes over again I Got Turtle!
Pattern is here. I changed the head to make it smaller and eliminated the last increase row.
Let’s just start this thing by saying that I suck at blogging. But, that is a given since the last time I was here was in September of last year. Well, that being said and what is really the big deal in the big scheme of things….it’s not like this is a hot ticket item anyway.
I won’t even try to fill in the time since my last post because I usually don’t remember what I did last week so the months that have gone by are dust in the wind. But, I can say that I had a really good memorial day weekend with family and friends. So, before these memories are caught in the cobwebs of my mind, I thought I would capture them here.

Dax and I had great fun in the “doll room”
It is wonderful to build memories and also to write them down before they fade.
*May God take away all the troubles of this house and leave peace in their place. God Bless our troops for they are the peacekepers"*
Happy Memorial Day, Y’all!
Can I just say Who Knew? Who knew Easy Spirit would have rockin’ ankle boots? I didn’t expect it. I’ve shopped there for over 10 years and I’ve mostly stuck to the mules that work for me. I received these boots to evaluate and when I opened the box, I thought “What?? Then my second thought was “I’m not going to be able to wear these”.I had knee surgery for a meniscus tear last year and the old knee is not what she used to be. I’ve had to be very careful with my footwear since then and with the neuropathy in my feet. I put them on and was again surprised that they didn’t hurt my feet and I could actually walk in them after not having on high heal of any type for about 5 years. Aren’t they super cute?! They are called Pensdale.
Notice how the back of the boot is not flush up against the ankle. My heel is snug as a bug in the boot, but the construction of the shoe is such that it doesn’t touch and gouge the back of my ankle. They are in their anti-gravity line and they are light weight with cushioned rubber soles that help the stability factor for me with the knee and the feet problems. I have worn these shoes out twice and took extra shoes both times ‘ya know…just in case…and never changed out of them. Granted, I didn’t do a marathon day long shopping in these shoes, but did a small amount of running in and out ( ok, walking in and out of several places and never felt the need to peel them off. These shoes are very comfortable and a younger Gal could possibly run a marathon in them. You know when you wear some shoes without socks or hose and the sole of the shoes will slip or stick to the bottom of your feet. These have really cool soles with mesh lining. Very breathable comfort when I wore them without socks or hose. Does anybody wear hose anymore? Not in Texas in the summer, I’ll tell you. So they were perfect without socks or hose and paired with a jean skirt.
They also rock pair of skinny jeans! when a girl has to supervise the Hubs doing yard work.
These are nice, comfortable pair of boots that I’m so happy I was able to review for Easy Spirit because I would have thought these boots to be out of my box and would never have considered them. Now that I know I can wear these boots, I’ll be strutting them right on outta my box from now on! Now….just need to speak to them ….again….about some Vicki Red.
These boots are light shopping (less than 4 hours) and schnauzer approved.
