Monday Musings: What Happened to Summer?

I think we blew through it a couple weeks ago, didn't we? Seems we have had very little sunny weather since that warm spell. I mean, I'm glad we are getting enough rain, but a little sunshine on my shoulders would be welcome! Oh, hey- we bought more plants! It seems we can't stop this … Continue reading Monday Musings: What Happened to Summer?

Monday Musings: Wildlife, Writing Life, and My Chili Dog

We live in what is definitely a suburban area. It has grown a lot since we moved up here. More houses, more traffic, more airplanes to and from the airport. With all of that, I sometimes forget that we also have a lot of wildlife around us, as well. Yes, we have birds, both the … Continue reading Monday Musings: Wildlife, Writing Life, and My Chili Dog

Monday Musings: Yard Work, Garden Plans, and Dog Walking

We got a good bit of yard work done on Saturday. It was a nice day, although a bit breezy. The BaldMan took the snowblower off the lawn tractor (No More Snow!). He didn't put the mower deck on.

Monday Musings: Puppy Update, You Can All Decorate for Christmas Now, and Writing Progress

The tomato plants in the garden have pretty much given up, along with the cucumbers and squash. I have a few beans on the vines, and the carrots are still going. The peppers … Continue reading Monday Musings: Garden’s End, Puppy Days, Italian Markets, and Football

Monday Musings: A Little of This, A Little of That

Just some random updates and thoughts today: How is the puppy doing, you ask? (And even if you didn't, I am going to tell you, anyway.) He is doing great! He was quite good at his Level 2 Obedience class last week. Much more focused and ready to work than the last time we tried … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Little of This, A Little of That

Monday Musings: Puppy Update, She’s Moving Out!, and C-c-c-c-cold

Lambeau is doing fine. He has gotten visibly bigger since we brought him home just a few weeks ago. Had him to the vet for his second set of shots. He goes back next month for the last round, and his rabies. He will start on heartworm medication, as well. The vet did think he … Continue reading Monday Musings: Puppy Update, She’s Moving Out!, and C-c-c-c-cold
