Brothers…

I was watching my pups today and again realized how much they act like brothers. The way they play, share, don’t share, and act… it’s almost human at times. My pups bring me such joy and love. It’s truly a blessing to have them in my life. I thought I would share this photo with you today as I took it recently while we … Read More Brothers…

New trick…

So I was bringing my husband home from the doctor… he is sick, very sick. He has a blood disorder that causes him to get more sick than most of us would with the flu. Anyways… I was driving down a back road and heard my back window open and saw Chase, our smallest dog, stick his nose out of the window. It’s common for us … Read More New trick…

Roy Rogers and Horses

Today I was walking through the living room cleaning and saw my husband had Roy Rogers on the TV. Now I don’t think he knew what he was watching as he was asleep. I remember as a kid watching reruns and wanting to ride a horse like Roy. Now if you know anything about Roy you know he has a trusty horse Trigger and of coarse a dog … Read More Roy Rogers and Horses

Wednesday…

I got home tonight to find my husband had made dinner. Now when I say made, he put the stuffed pasta shells and pasta sauce I made the other week and froze, into the oven to cook. But I still appreciate it very much 🙂 It’s nice to come home after a long day and have a hot and healthy meal ready for you. … Read More Wednesday…

Tuesday…

It was another long day. I had a training at work that started before I normally go in on a Tuesday. Then I worked my normal hours after that, for an 10 hour day total. It was nice to get off and come home to my husband and dad at the table waiting on the chinese food I was bringing, so they wouldn’t have to wait for … Read More Tuesday…

Monday…

What a day… I am ready for bed. Work was long. When I got home and after I put on the pot roast (see recipes section), my husband and I took the dogs on a long walk. For the first day in a long time it was nice weather, sunny, and NO WIND. The chickens who had been let out in the back yard, were … Read More Monday…

So today is supposed to be a day of rest and in some households it is. In my household we try to honor this, however today it was not so easy to do. I had so many other things to do yesterday that the house list from Saturday got moved to today. Todays list included cleaning (including closets, drawers, floors, rugs, dusting, polishing, dishes, … Read More Sunday the day of rest…

Wish me luck. Today is also a day that I take Baxter my therapy dog to his Therapy Dog event … Read More Work in progress…

First Post

I am sitting in my basement tonight writing this first post. I just finished locking the chickens in their coop for the night and my little dog Chase is always happy to help. The fire is blazing on this cold Virginia night as the wind whips around our house. It seems the last year the wind has been really bad in our neck of … Read More First Post
