Pup Watch & Staying Busy …
As a first time mom, Georgie and her pups are doing great! She has even adjusted to having a whelp-mate in the nursery, as Gina is waiting for her pups to arrive (- and growing bigger by the minute!) … So, DH and I are staying close. I’m so grateful we have a finished basement with second kitchen. I’ve been coloring card tops with pencils, watercolors, ink pads and alcohol markers … I even managed to get a few finished as cards!
And tonight, I perused the ‘net to find a soup recipe to make, while still overseeing the girls/nursery. Loosely based on this recipe (thank you, Chunguh!), I added some other veggies that we had on hand (cabbage, parsnip, spinach), ultimately altering the liquid portions to accommodate all those veggies. I finished the soup around 5:00 this morning, and woke DH so he could sample. He says it’s great, and I like it too!
Work has been stressful – due to the blasted EPIC charting system. But, I know every shift I finish, I’m that much closer to being competent/comfortable. And, I have cute pups waiting for me at home!
I hope to color this image before heading back to work. I just couldn’t resist this Stamping Bella stamp when I saw it! Who doesn’t love Neo Mastiffs?!? Photos of our babies to come soon … Happy Thursday Y’all!
