Is it Sunday already?
This weekend has flown by. We got a new temporary addition to our family, we are fostering a little Chi Mix puppy whom we've named D.J. Ska Bee. He has a non contagious skin problem, that needs to be cleared up before he is able to be adopted. Currently he is 2 1/2 pounds of pure energy, constantly running around trying to get the cats and Bettie to play with him 20 hours out of the day. He looks like a little bat to me, and I know someone is going to fall in love with him and give him a great forever home.
Also today, I took the train down to San Jose and hung out with Shoshanna and her friend Kristy all afternoon. We made jewelry and had a great time. Thanks again Shosh for the invite!!
