Happy Easter, Belatedly!

AJ declared himself a "handsome boy" in his tie and dress shirt. We had to agree.
Will doesn't care about such things -- just give him a ball and some other toys and he's happy as can be.

We had Easter dinner at our house yesterday afternoon and enjoyed visiting with the kids and grandkids.

We had to have Pita put down last Monday, so it's been a bad week. He was getting old, blind, deaf and arthritic and his heart was bad and he started bleeding from his nose -- the vet thought it was probably a tumor. JR can't figure out what's going on -- he keeps going to Bill's truck as if to say, "let's go get my buddy back."
I've been doing more spring cleaning -- I have the laundry room and the main bath on the second floor finished -- all that's left is the master bedroom and bath upstairs. Problem is, as I finish each area, I come down the stairs and see that the first floor needs to be done as well, so I may be continuing the deep cleaning all summer.
Haven't done much quilting in the past week though, but hopefully will be back at it this week. I have one small quilt to load on the longarm this afternoon and still have a couple to stitch the bindings down and as always, lots of applique projects waiting to be worked on. But nothing has a deadline, so I will be taking my time and enjoying the process.
We had a nice Easter and the weather wasn't too bad -- temps in the 50's, but the wind is still quite cold.

I'm sorry to hear about your dog. We have one that we might have to do the same with. Ours is 16 years old and has a hard time seeing and is deaf, and seems to be forgetting how to get to the hallway to go outside, for instance. She was a dog who'd never piddle inside, but has accidents nearly daily now. The other day she tried to go to the back door and made a wrong turn into our closet and couldn't get out. Poor dear.

It looks like you had a wonderful Easter with your family!

Oh I"m so sorry to hear about Pita. That had to be a rough week for you. Hope things are going ok. And yes he is the most handsome-est young man!

So sorry about Pita. They leave a hole, don't they? We have Sophie who seems to be deaf and we're afraid she will be in the wrong place at the wrong time!
Really handsome boys...know
they cheered you some.

So sorry for your loss. It can be very, very hard.
Happy for your handsome guys, though!

Sorry to hear about your dog. I had to do the same years ago but did not want him to suffer unnecessarily. Your Pita was a cutie.

Same goes for the boys very handsome indeed.

I'm glad someone has a clean house! LOL
