This is my Lucky dog - Lucky - He just had a birthday last week. He is now 5 years old. We just love him to pieces...... Sometimes.......... No he's a good boy. When we first got Lucky my other dog Ozzie just passed away. And I loved Ozzie so much and I could not bear it. I just cried all the time and I think Ron felt so bad for me, that he would have done anything to help me out. I found Lucky up in Grayling. We went one weekend to check them out and went back the following week to pick him up. He was just a little ball of fur barely weighed 2 lbs and was just a little cutie....... We named him Lucky because I was so lucky to find him. Now we call him Lucky because he's lucky that we keep him : ) ........ He is always so good when I am looking to take some pictures. He takes such good ones.....

There was a squirrl in the back yard and that usually keeps him pretty busy.... We won't let him chase birds but squirrels are his, we don't think he would know what to do with one if he caught one. LOL

Happy Birthday Lucky====

We love you

Happy Thursday

I just finished a wonderful book called "The Perfect Summer" by Luanne Rice. This was a really good book. One of those that you have a hard time putting down. It was not one of my normal reads (sereal killer, total mystery, or a little love lost type) There was a little mystery involved but the story was manly about a mom and her children. A very good take me away from life type book. This was one of my first Luanne Rice books. And I will looking for more of them.

I hemmed a couple of pairs of my blue jeans last night. The first pair were an older beater type jeans. They needed to be hemmed quite a bit (2 inches) but they turned out pretty good. The second pair only had to be hemmed an inch and they turned out much better. Now that I know that I can do, I will have to start heming more. The jeans are so long anymore, even if you wear heals which I don't, they would still be long. I will try and post a picture later.

I am still really excited about going to the Buick Open. The weather looks like it is gonna be awesome, a little sunny and warmer. This has been one of our cooler summers, but I have really enjoyed it. We havent had to use the air only a couple of times this summer.

Jeff and I will be finishing up the Ma and Pa golf league. One of couples will not be able to golf the rest of the season. Now we have to pay but that is ok. We both have a really good time and enjoy each other.

Well I better get back to work. Talk later

Looking good. All cleaned up.

I just want to say a couple of quick words. We got back from my nephew Christopher wedding in Toledo. What a nice wedding it was. He has been in the Army since he graduated from high school.

Here is Christopher and Uncle Ron. Both looking good.

Bob (dad) and Cheryl (mom) looking proud and happy....

Here is our oldest - Jeff and Katie (Bob and Cheryl's youngest). Katie and Jacob (#3) are just one year apart, but they both graduated this year from High School. Katie looks really pretty and Jeff really looks good. Men always look good in a tux.

Here is the Compeau clan minus Dena (#4)- Dale Jr (#1) Cheryl (#2) Mom Dad and Ron (#3 )

It was a really nice wedding. We got to spend the night in a hotel - (Country Inn) that is always fun. Ron and I made a trip out of it. We were gonna go golfing but that did'nt work out so we hit Cabela's on the way home and made a stop at a golf store (GolfSmith) and I got a new putter and Ron bought a new wedge. He seems to have a wedge fedish..... But I would never tell him that....

I have finish another one of my purses that I started the other day.

Here a couple of pics

Please pay no mind to the background of both of these pics- One is my sewing room and it needs to be cleaned and the other is an old dresser that I got from my mom but it works awesome for craft supplies....

I really liked how this one turned out. I just need to add some cardboard to the bottom of it. To make it a little more stable. I can't wait to use it. I got the pattern from another one of the Quilts and More magazine.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I think we are having a cookout. Will try and get more pics this weekend.

Take care Teri

Well here is the bag that I made Sunday. I need to redo the handles because they are a little stretchy. They called for synthetic leather and I had something that was kinda like that but it was a little to stretchy...... Besides I think I like the shorter handles anyway...I may even use the same fabric as the bag.....

This pattern came out of a Quilts and More magazine. I also used a heavier fabric than what the pattern called for. But I love it... Just need shorter handles..

See my little grommets that I put in. They were really easy. Especially after my hubby showed me how : ) I want to find more things to make with the grommets maybe a couple of cool looking golf towels for my golf partner!!

July 12th 2009

Here are the scrappy toppers I made for on top of my washer and dryer. When you walk in the back door you have to walk by them, so they looked really awesome. This is the best that my washer and dryer looked in a long time.

Sorry I have not been posting much lately, but I was busy with a Graduation open house which went really well. We seen family we had not seen in a while and then it was 4th of July weekend. We did'nt go anywhere except to golf all weekend. And I golfed awesome..... Had a nice relaxing time.

I have had my nose in a couple of really good books lately. I read a Nora Roberts "Carolina Moon" which was good except after a couple of chapters I thought I may have read it before, it was really good and yes I had read it. This week I read a Lisa Jackson "Final Scream" which was good and fast. I have another Lisa Jackson "Fatal Burn" but I can not start it yet until I do some sewing today.....

Today I hope to make a new purse and I will post some pics of it later today... My husband is going out of town golfing so I have the whole day to myself.

I found a couple of bags that I want to make, last night I cut the fabric for one of them and hope to get it sewn and then I have the fabric for another that I hope to make today but I do have to make dinner (crockpot) have that covered and laundry, but I think that can be done. Both patterns came out of a Quilts and More magazine, which has become a favorite mag for me, they have a little bit of everything in them.....

Have a enjoyable Sunday and I will talk later.......Teri
