There's a (fairly) new hand-dyed yarn and woolen store in Ames and it's really cool. I have no idea what I'd do with those beautiful fibers, but it was fun to 'pet' them. The store is called "Prairie Fibers" and is on Main Street in Ames.
Maybe I'll go shopping again this afternoon!! Anything is better than being in the house with two animals with upset stomachs! The dog, Chia, who is now 13 or 14 years old (and came with the house when we bought it) is having some trouble with her front right leg.
The vet says it's a tumor, and she may not have much time left without being in some major pain. We give her Previcox (1/2 pill) every day, and she's eating and drinking still, but today she's really acting like it hurts to put any weight on it, and upchucking little foam puddles around the house because she can't get outside fast enough. One of the cats has added her two cents' worth by adding a hairball to the hallway. oh well.... life in the fast lane!!!
