Time Flies!

I know that I am not alone in this ... time flies by!  I was scrolling through my photos and it hit me that February is only a week away!  Yikes!
Here in DillyDallydom ... life is easily improved with a long run and walk.  Nissa has an abundance of puppy energy and our 1500 square foot home is too small!  With that level of enthusiasm she needs to spend part of her day outdoors.  We take a 1-2 hour walk/run every day ... whether Mother Nature cooperates or not!  I only stop to take photos when the weather is decent ... so I always feel that I might be misleading everyone.  If everyday looked like my photos, a million people would move here! ;-)
Terry and Barb are our December QBee birthday girls ... due to travel we celebrated in January.
Their birthdays mark the end of our 2015 birthday cycle.  We began our QBee birthday parties in October 2007 ... two years before I began blogging!
Slowly ... but consistently our days are getting a bit longer!
While working on a 007 project I cut out 216 squares that were 7/8th inch!  Insanity!  After I was finished, I recalculated the numbers ... and I only needed 36!  Quilt math!  So ... I have 180 extra 7/8ths of an inch squares ... guess they'll make great fabric confetti!  Such silliness in DillyDallydom!
The lake freezes and thaws all winter long as the temperatures drop and rise.  So even though we take our walks here most often, the view is always changing.  I never tire of it!
Cannot get this fur baby to sit still for a photo!  ;-)  When we ask her to stay, she thinks she is in trouble and pouts!  Such a goofball!
Girlfriend DD recently spent an afternoon sewing ... Flicka supervised!  Of course!
Finally ... a photo of a walk in light rain!
Sister DD sent photos ... here she is with her Star Wars quilt and wearing her Star Wars pajamas.  I make pjs for the kids every Christmas!  
Here are both she and Boyfriend DD in their pjs.  I had planned to spend the past week in California with them, but Sister had a an unexpected business trip come up.  She would have been home only 5 of the ten days I was to be there ... so I rescheduled and will be visiting her in May.
Picture proof that I can't keep up with this pup!  She turned 8 months old yesterday!
This storm system moved in and is dumping buckets of rain today.  I will brave the elements ... Nissa loves the rain ... and we'll wear off some of her energy ... ;-) ... while draining mine!  Life in DillyDallydom is never dull ... time flies by ... and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Do what you love.  Do dillydally!

  1. No matter what the weather is like, you live in such a beautiful place! Enjoy your dilly-dally weekend!

  2. Thanks for the beautiful pics.
    I'm glad Flicka is supervising. ;)
    I love her "perch".

  3. At first glance, I thought Barb had braids. Second glance, I realized it was a scarf.
