sarcasticquilter Mm, breakfast of champions at the hospital cafe. Glad I brought a clementine with me to give me a little sugar boost. 21min
  •   studiovquilting Idk why but I love those powder eggs our hospital cafe serves. Everyday I work I get some 19min

sarcasticquilter My thanks to @karie_twokwikquilters for puppy sitting my high energy pup today while I sit at the hospital during hubs' surgery to remove a mass at the base of his skull (dr doesn't seem concerned but we'd appreciate any prayers for safety & health during the procedure since it is pushing on his nerve bundle there.) also, my apologies to @grandmalouwho because I didn't get around to vacuuming & picking up my house. I know you don't care but I at least try to have a clean home for someone's first visit. @amylouwhosews can attest to the fact I'm not a total slob! I expect to see a picture of you with the pup when you visit with Karie. 2h

sarcasticquilter Words cannot express how happy I am knowing this is view I will have for my sewing room/office. All we need is the house to be finished so I can move in. #sarcasticproperty 2d

sarcasticquilter Good morning? Certain pups didn't get the memo that it's time to get up. Guess I'm forced to enjoy a little more quiet time. Oh gee. 2d

sarcasticquilter Do you remember the question of a chupacabra at #sarcasticproperty? It was a post from last year. Anyway, this single print was found at our home construction site. No additional prints to be found... The mystery continues. 🕵 #heresahashtagforricky what say you @rjvond 3d

sarcasticquilter The puppy loves the play at her Uncle's. I think it's funny until I remember I have to not let her do that at home when I pick her up. 6d

sarcasticquilter I love this picture, even if I feel a little bad that my bro, SIL, niece & nephew are a bit worn out from my high energy pup. I know this is Sadie's happy place, so I hope my niece is enjoying it as well. Repost @kvontherun.

sarcasticquilter She has an obsession with licking the couch & pillows & when told no, she gets crazy mad. #thedogwhisperer might say we aren't being alpha enough but I'm sure at a loss as to what else we can do. My other pup lickes the couch too at times so I think it feels good on their tongues but really... What a PITA. #gsp #heresahashtagforricky 2w
  •   twolittlegirlsquilts My pubs like the couch too lol I always figured if I would rather lay on the couch than the floor why wouldn't they? The only way to keep ours off is by putting lots of hard pillows or boxes. 2w
  •   meigheyburn Spray some bitter apple on it. She'll stop licking pretty quickly. 2w
  •   tonsfeldt1979 Try a shaky can. Put a few pennies or rocks in an empty soda can and shake it when she licks the couch. They hate the noise 2w
  •   sarcasticquilter @tonsfeldt1979 we don't want to do the noise deterrent because we don't want her noise shy for hunting. @meigheyburn it's a big couch but it's def. an option 2w
  •   meigheyburn I would think you'd just have to spray one one spot and it should get her to stop. I sprayed one part of my Christmas tree and Neo left it be the whole time it was up. 2w
  •   tonsfeldt1979 Some people spray them with water in the face too, to discourage behavior. Would that work? 2w
  •   weatherkim My friends young dog used to lick the brick of the fireplace… It must have something to do with the Texture??? 2w
  •   solarthreads Also use the water spray bottles for unwanted behavior, and maybe some extra chew toys? 2w

sarcasticquilter Look how big she's grown! (& how many bags are under my eyes trying to keep up with her. Lol) #gsp 2w
  •   solarthreads We have a GWP, and they sure do have abundant energy! We got ours as a puppy when we had 80 acres of public forest adjacent to our house. EVERY day he still gets a nice long walk, now at a local park on a leash. Makes a huge difference! 2w
  •   solarthreads Oh, and she sure is adorable! 2w
  •   thesouthernbobbin So cute! Amazing how they can tucker us out. It is like having a two years old. Mine is finally starting to get out of the "puppy" stage and she will be 2 in April. She still has her days. 2w
  •   capitolaquilter We adopted both our GSPs as young adults so I've never been through the puppy stage. Considering how young at heart they stayed I can only imagine. She's adorable 2w
  •   quiltnutcreations But she's so cute!! 2w
  •   sarcasticquilter @solarthreads yes, we have 40 acres but the snow hampers walks. Good thing is she loves it so she's been out as long and as often as it is safe for her to be in the cold. :) 2w

sarcasticquilter I was really wishing today was a day I woke up & was at #thestashbash. I had to settle for using the mug, instead. 2w

sarcasticquilter Last bit of shoveling done (back deck) & a total cheat on baking a frozen, broccoli stuffed chicken breast but balanced with tomatoes & a homemade honey/mustard vinaigrette. I still need to workout tonight so I can't have too heavy of a dinner. I think a strawberry/cherry #shakeology will be perfect to help recover & add more calories after #insanitymax30 & #piyo are completed tonight. So how is YOUR #sweatnsew going? I'm still checking in on you! 2w
  •   karie_twokwikquilters I walked for the first time in 2 weeks! And I'm off to yoga now..... Yoga 4 times a week and breath work and meditation 1/2 hour every morning.... Doesn't burn calories but it does make my body operate better! 2w

sarcasticquilter I'm trying to post less puppy photos but the reality is, she's all I'm dealing with besides the normal day to day stuff. It's like a strong-willed baby who just learned to walk except she's faster. Lol. Anyway, a dog playpen has been our BEST investment so far. It gives all of us a break, big pups included. 3w
  •   sarcasticquilter @nishydoodle it's why I never complained when I see others' puppy or new baby pics for several weeks after arrival. Lol I remembered what it was like and then still subjected myself to it. 3w
  •   shaena167 we can't get another dog for a long time. GSP's are my favorite so I love your posts! :) 3w
  •   rosewoodacresplus3 With 2 new ones in our home in Aug, reality is this is about all you get done. It's like having toddlers in the house again. Glad the playpen is working for you. 3w
  •   sunnydaysupply Oh boy! We just got out of that phase! I thought I might lose my mind. Haha! I love your baby analogy. I keep saying ours is like a toddler with big sharp teeth! It is getting much better, though. 3w
  •   crafty_jojo Lol this is why I only adopt adult dogs. Went through the puppy thing once and that was enough! 3w
  •   texascrazy5 I say you do what you have to do with pups. I love puppies. 3w
  •   meigheyburn Never apologize for posting puppy pictures!! My entire feed is filled with my dog haha. Puppy pictures make everyone's day happier. 3w
  •   stacistories Totally understand-- kittens have temporarily taken over my life, too. I love them, and I am SO looking forward to bringing sewing and free time back into my regular programming! 3w

sarcasticquilter Meanwhile the farmers near #sarcasticproperty don't need no stinking plows, they just get in their trucks and go about business as usual #blizzard2016 3w

sarcasticquilter Quilters ruler says 11.5" of snow but sore back, hips, arms & tummy muscles say quilters ruler is full of lies. #blizzard2016 3w
  •   maryjoan1 We ended up with 17.5 in Staunton Va. Thank goodness for snow blowers. 3w
  •   quiltsandcutiepies We have had quite a bit of snow this season but thankfully it wasn't all in one day!! Shoveling is hard work!! 3w
  •   sarcasticquilter @maryjoan1 I'm about to post a pic of the hubs headed to our property, country there, and I know there's a lot more. It's only 20 min. Away. Just the way the bands were dumping the snow. 3w
  •   hoppiquilts 32 here! My back is on fire 3w
  •   stacistories Yes, but 11.5 inches, by how many feet wide and long?? You probably shoveled a whole ROOM FULL of snow!!! 3w
  •   sarcasticquilter @stacistories true but still, I know we got more than that. Hubs said I chose the wrong place to measure but I'm too lazy to go out & bother again. Lol 3w
  •   stacistories LOL!!! 3w
  •   tboydsellshouses We measured 25 inches 3w

sarcasticquilter Mmm, I knew freezing this homemade turkey bean soup would pay off one day and today is the day! Healthy but nutrient & energy rich to go with my snow shoveling #sweatnsew 3w

sarcasticquilter It appears puppies have a walking on snow capability that fails the rest of us. Oh to weigh 15 lbs or so. #blizzard2016 #gsp meets first large snowfall. She loves it so much I have to force her in. 3w
