Small Operation

I didn’t write last week due to an operation I had. The surgery was small and took less than an hour, but it really knocked me on my behind. The side effects were what got me. Luckily I was able to spend the week mostly sleeping and sitting zombie-like on the couch. The hubby wasContinue reading “Small Operation”

1st Comfort for Critters Complete

Well, it might be a tad narrow and the pattern certainly is messed up, but hopefully the kitties and puppies won’t mind. I can assure you that it is still very fluffy! So it should be comfortable for them to sleep with. I plan on making a few more and maybe will try the sameContinue reading “1st Comfort for Critters Complete”

A Little Walk with My Little Love

If you come to my house on any given day, you might find a black and white cat sitting in the living room ( and whining) at the back door. This would be my fur baby, Max.

Apparently they get filled with treats and become toys for the dogs andContinue reading “A toilet paper roll has a second life”

In the beginning, we did lots of fun activities and made sure to keep ourselves busy, but as time has gone on, the fun of staying home has worn off and we’ve fallen in to a routine.

Ah, Sunshine

I realize it’s getting colder and darker around the country, even here in Texas it’s started having it’s cool and rainy days. So how do you appreciate the sun when it’s so cold? In my house there are two windows in the bedroom that let in daytime sun just above a little two person sofa.Continue reading “Ah, Sunshine”

Lots of Love in a little Package

I grew up with two black labs, Sarah and Emma. I loved them to pieces. In fact I didn’t get my first dog until I was eight, so I begged for years to get one. I would literally get down on all fours and bark like a dog, haha. Then on the eve of myContinue reading “Lots of Love in a little Package”
