The CH-CH-Changes…

While I have been gone I am trying to set up my site so I can sell my quilts and other makes. While I was gone, or perhaps when I chose to start paying for my add free web pages, WordPress has changed the writing and posting experience. Sigh… I hate to say it, but I am having a very hard time trying to figure it all out. Old brain cells perhaps? Or are you suffering with the changes too?

I do have wonderful things to share with you, and I will share them. When I can figure out how to put them into a post!!!

Well, I guess I got bold figured out. Any helpful hints will be cheerfully accepted and appreciated!

Addendum: Apparently, I have been on WordPress for 12 years now… That’s a long time.

Big Changes are coming

I am getting ready to change my blog’s domain name.  I have always hated it and didn’t understand how everything worked when I set it up.  I am also going to a premium plan to get rid of ads and be able to sell my products directly via Paypal.

If I understand how this works you should be redirected to my new web address.

I hope this works and that it will all be worth it in the end.  If the sales venture is a flop, then I will drop the premium plan but still retain the new domain name.

I am excited, yet apprehensive, so wish me luck I’m going to need it!

AND, if you have had experience in doing the above, any tips, help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your patience.

Walker’s World

Walker, the new friend of the Farmlet, has a voracious appetite for chewables.  To date he has killed Noodle’s squeaky plush toys; both the squirrel and the chipmunk!  He has also killed two of my good cotton anklets, and one pair of my favorite cotton underwear.

😠

If I am busy about the house, then he is in his puppy prison playpen.

It keeps him out of mischief.

Anyone care to guess who that photo bomber is?  😉

If I am seated watching TV he is attached to my little footstool/rolling table.  Even so, he tried to eat the corner of the couch, while I was sitting there.

🤯

In my studio he is on lead and attached to the cutting table…  and you guessed it, he found something to chew;  my expensive Tutto Sewing machine buggy!  It isn’t bad, but it is irritating.

Walker!  This is not a toy!

So today I took one of the many pockets I have saved from Bob’s old blue jeans and stuffed it with leftover quilting fluff and one of the squeaky buttons from the killed plush toys, then sewed it shut and voila!  A new chewy for Walker.

THANKS, MOM!

So, how long will it last?  Who can say?

I know these bad-dog symptoms are a direct result of boredom (and teething too), but what he needs is to go walking with me.   I walk him on lead in the backyard, but we can’t go anywhere else until his last Parvo inoculation.

In only 2.5 weeks and I am counting the days!

A word on dog/cat/human immunization:  There are some out there who are on the “no pet vaccine wagon”.  They are some of the same people who think that human immunizations are bad.  Well, I do not want to hear it.

  • I almost lost my little sister to Whooping Cough when she was about 4 years old.
  • I DID lose a dog to Parvo when I was a teen.

These two incidents were scary as hell and I will not skip an immunization for myself or my pets.  I can think of a lot of ways to die, but not from an unnecessary and preventable illness.

Nuff – said and OMSB now.
