Under Cover ....


It is beautiful this am and you can guess WHO wanted to play a game of UNDER COVER?
yep the Riot Boys... I am working on a weekend project, actually a morning one...
I completed this one early this am...and now that the Riot Boys are resting from
their adventure this am....I will complete the other...

 The riot boys are funny, Sumo is our talker, he has the sweetest cry and Sumo rarely makes a sound, but he did this am after some coaxing from Sumo-- so how could I not let them out lol


I ordered this Beach Tent to keep us all undercover this summer. It will be perfect to set up 
at cheering stops next weekend when David does his ride...Jo, our dear friend will be joining
us for the weekend...so we just need some kind of cover, so this will be perfect...
The tent is blue with red windows so  RBD RED gingham was a perfect choice for these backs..
I added a thin layer of batting and stapled it to this frame....
( now if I had some blue, I possibly would have done one in red and the other blue lol)

I love these chairs, a friend of ours made them for us 2 decades ago and they are
still in wonderful shape... 

The Riot Boys gave their nod of approval...I really think RBD GINGHAM is their 
fav basic as well....

I took it from this to that....I am going to add a slip pocket on the back as well for keys...
and it has a handle to carry them...they are the neatest beach chairs..
Although I can honestly say, they have never seen a beach...but they have seen
many picnics..maybe I should call them PICNIC chairs lol


So here is Monchat playing undercover with Sumo....he really thinks no one can see him...


This was cute, again thinking if he is hiding behind these daisy bushes, no one else can 
see him...He totally ignored me while I was taking these shots..
again, if he does not look at me, he thinks I cannot see him...

Sumo was coming up from the outside, he could hear him, he was looking up at David
questioning on where Sumo was???

They are a riot...they played tag for about 20 minutes...they are now sleeping! A great workout
for both of them this am...

Sumo was actually catching a bug....he loves bugs....
remember my bug song...

Bugs Bugs Bugs 
if I had them all in Jugs.
I would dig dig dig
Until a big hole was dug
and that would be the end
of my Bug song...

I sang it this am!


Ok, one more time....


He is so fierce outside....lol

David is heading out for a trial ride , I am going to finish my other chair
and bake some custard berry tarts...
Perfect summer treat for his return from his ride...
Next week is the real thing...I believe he is ready xx
real thing as in ride not custard berry tarts...
BOTH are real! 

Cheerio....
To a lovely weekend UNDERCOVER!

  1. You are really going to love the tent Samm. I don't know how we ever survived without ours. Best purchase ever! We use it for all kinds of events, and it keeps the sun off beautifully. The boys are so cute... and you capture their expressions with such talent. I tried to take a few pics of our new little one, and it is impossible. They move so fast! I have a new appreciation for how skilled you are at taking their pictures. Love your chairs by the way... the gingham looks perfect as always. xx

  5. Hi Samm.......Hopefully you will post pictures of yourself in full cheerleader mode, along with some of David is his riding gear. I will root for him as well as pray for a safe finish of his ride. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and provide a clear sunny day. Hugs to you both!

    1. Hellllllo Sylvia...and yes there will be pics...but possibly not of me...as who will take them.....lol... thanks for the cheer for him...I know he must feel it because he is on a high before this event, during and after...he feels the flow of energy....xx and if it is nice that will be fine....but the rain is good too, it cools them off...so rain or shine...he is ready...and so am I.....alll week his diet changes to complex carbs....so I am cooking and baking more....he loves that....he burns it all off. and I do too as I prepare it all lol

  10. Hey Sammy, the boys are growing every week. It's good seeing David riding again this year. Praying for the safety for all riders, especially yours. Don't burn those legs Ladies.

  11. Hi Ton, ahhh and will for another 2 years...many are not aware they are still small for ragdolls..they will still be double in size ....Sumo maybe not, as he is already so behind on the charts...his ill heart may have a lot to do with that...doesn't stop him at all thought... Monchat is almost 2 pounds heavier now ....And yes the ride next week...he will be just fine...and Jo and I will be well covered...
