I heard DG and Puppers barking their alert barks, so I stepped out on the porch, hoping it was the UPS guy with my package. IT WAS BITSY AND DIXIE - LOOSE!!! They pushed the fence up at the bottom and both went right out (at the same spot). Nobody can ever tell me I … Continue reading Pigs on the loose (again)!
Could she BE any cuter???
Usually we have a big crew for Thanksgiving, and the past three years, I've made it a potluck. It's been awesome and easy for everybody. This year though I have cousins going to see a new baby on their side, two of Teddy's friends going to visit their families up north, and my parents probably … Continue reading I’ve got a plan!
This kitten is so ornery. She's like a little devil cat most of the time. Once she settled in, she really settled in! Ted says whoever dumped her probably couldn't handle her. She stalks through the house, pouncing on everything that she thinks needs pounced (this includes paper, plastic, stuffed animals, trash bags, shoes, other … Continue reading Little Miss Ornery

When it got too warm for using it, it got moved to the front porch where it set for a month, forgotten. Except it wasn't forgotten...because DG found it and chewed the cord in half! It's … Continue reading Little helper
Here's something not so good for the books: it's been a rough two weeks around here. Work demands are constantly increasing, and between my teaching job and the college classes I'm taking, I generally get to bed between 2:30 and 3:30 in the morning now. I'm reading about 60 pages per night for the college … Continue reading I’m a wanted woman
...all we need is one ray of sunshine to be warm and feel loved.
In August, I was part of a big group yardsale. My town has a couple of Facebook local groups, and one decided to have a group sale. It was fantastic! The weather was beautiful, and there were lots of people shopping and walking all around the parking lot where we set up. I went with … Continue reading New life for an old piece
