Westminster is a benched show. This means the dogs must be in their assigned benching area throughout the day unless they are being groomed, are in the ring or are taking care of potty business.

It was Ro, Stephanie, Sylvia and I. Another friend, April, couldn't make it. We are a close-knit little group of friends. I love them dearly. You've seen 'Sex and the City?' Well, that's not us. We're more like, "Kids and the Suburbs." Yeah, that's us. Over the years, we've all been there for each other through joys and sorrows, silly and serious, laughter and tears. I can't even begin to express how much they mean to me.
You can click on this photo to enlarge her lovely menu.
Syl brought a jasmine tea flower. It 'blooms' in the boiling water. Pretty and brews delicious tea. .
I know, I'm so lucky. And yes, it was as delicious as it looks! She even sent us home with beautiful Valentine boxes of goodies. Thanks, Ro. I love you with all of my heart. xo xo Cat ^..^

Although we were all exhausted by the end of the day, we did have a great time. I will post more photos as I get them. -CS ^..^

My friend LaVonne in Montana is having a really nice giveaway on her blog to celebrate and promote the CSA that she is forming. A CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Traditionally a CSA is formed by those who have huge farms. The idea is to get members or subscribers to 'become part of your farm' and reap the benefits of the harvest. Since LaVonne raises sheep, she put a twist on this concept in that she is using her own wool to form this CSA that she has named "Sick and Twisted." After the March shearing, her wool will be spun into a lovely Shetland and Romney cross yarn. I can personally tell you that this wool is lovely, having used it in my own projects. The winner will receive 4 skeins of Serenity Sheep yarn or roving. I hope it is me :) Here is a link to her blog post where you can read more about it and to her etsy shop, which can also be found on her blog. Check the Feb 4 and Jan 31 posts. There's always a link to LaVonne on the sidebar of my blog as well.
On another note, a big bloggy "Thank You" to Linda over at The Briar Rose Gate for this art blog award. Do stop by her blog and check out her lovely work! (Kristen S., she's got Jethro Tull playing.....)
I'm supposed to list seven things I love and then pass it on. Linda picked seven scents she loves. I think I will pick seven things I love about Corgis.
1) The happy nub wag (or tail wag on a Cardi)
2) How happy they are while making tunnels when running through newly fallen snow.
3) Their sixth sense which draws them into the kitchen whenever you open the fridge.
4) When they sleep on their backs with their little legs in the air.
5) Those wonderful ears.
6) Their swishy pants.
7) How they look when they are lying down with their legs in a frog splat, head down on their paws and their eyebrows shift when they are looking around without lifting their heads.
Have a happy day my little Corgettes! xo xo Cat ^..^
