Mother’s Day and cute stuff!

We had dinner out with the kids tonight.  Over the years, DH has been fairly ‘privileged’ and/or isolated from dining out (I have food allergies, plus I like to cook).  We went to a nice restaurant, and he nearly choked on the cost of the bill.  But, it was a good dinner, great visit and …

Sweet Puppies, Mental Health Nite and CARDS …

RoBo’s babies have turned three weeks old.  Their eyes are open and starting to focus, ears are opening (they scare themselves when they growl or bark) and they’re getting cuter by the MINUTE!!! DH and I got together with some of my work gang this week.  Many have moved on from our ER ( – …

Busy Week … But, Not Done YET!!!

So, just to shake things up a bit this week, DH fully embraced a senior moment.  He gave Clyde his dose of naproxen, instead of Clyde’s dose of Zyrtec.  Meanwhile, I was cruising along at 80MPH, whistling a happy  tune in the studio  … And came to a SCREECHING STOP!  ‘You did what?’  Ninety minutes …

Our Xena had her babies on Sunday – four beautiful pups joined our crew.  Here’s a quick pic John sent me while I was at work.  [Better photos to come …] And, DH turned another year older this week.  So, we started the week with Bean & Bacon soup – made with ham hock broth, …

Welcome 2019

DH and I quietly rolled into 2019 with a new family member. Meet Giorgana … or Georgie, for short!  She’s 5 months old, and such a sweetheart!  The bulldog gang, along with the rest of the crew have already bonded… And Chloe likes to ‘mother’ her! And, I’m cleaning and reorganizing the studio, with a …

T-8 hours
