Furry Friday ~ The Many Positions of Zoe


Zoe (who hasn't been introduced properly yet*) has many sleeping positions. Mostly ON or at the very least touching one of us. If there's a lap, you better believe she'll be in it. If a lap isn't available, then she makes due with wherever she can but still has to be in close proximity of you.

Dog down! Head down to be exact. LOL

Doesn't look comfy to me but I guess being nosey trumps comfort LOL

Sacked out cold like she had a rough night haha

Pouting b/c she can't be in my lap while I'm eating.

"Look at how cute I am?! You know you love me!"

Best seat in the house

(* Working on a proper introductory post for Ms. Zoe, which will be found at the top under "My Critters Past and present".)

She's Got Me spinning

The other day was beautiful; not too hot, sun was shining and there was a nice breeze. We finally had a free afternoon and decided to take a trip to the park for a little bit of play time.

We climbed



we bounced


and we did a little bit of spinning


We also played hide-n-seek but no pics so I guess that part never happened ;-)

Just a nice afternoon spent with my littliest one at the park. Can't ask for anything better.

Paint + Coffee Can + Labels = Fun!

Occasionally, I get the urge to 'create' something. Actually, that urge hits quite often but I generally ignore it b/c A) what I want to create and what I actually make are never the same and/or B) materials cost more than I want to spend.

But sometimes I'll run across a DIY tutorial on FB or Pinterest and think 'Hey, that's something even *I* can do!'

One such tutorial was making wipes using a paper towel roll cut in half, vinegar, rubbing alcohol, water and essential oils and then placing the whole thing in a coffee can. Suh-weet! (That's the purple one on the left saying "You Make It? You Clean It."

Next in the pic is a Lysol Wipes container that now stores those annoying plastic bags that take up so much room and finally the black on the right is my own "creation" (meaning I didn't steal this idea from FB or Pinterest but thought of it on my own) that stores the coffee filters.


This one isn't necessarily a DIY as all I did was have John cut a slit out of the plastic lid and then I printed "Trip Fund!" and taped it to a jar for my clients. Watching your money "grow" is always so much more fun. :-)


Whenever I succeed in my ideas actually working in real life, it makes me happy b/c let me tell ya, it doesn't happen often! LOL

Church and then cleaned, cleaned, cleaned. All day. Worked on both kids rooms, washed, dried and put away several loads of laundry and washed and dried rugs. Phew.


I'd like to see more green but it is what it is haha. Can't expect major results if all I'm doing is watching calories, gotta burn them off too. LOL

Went to Dad's and loaded our car with boxes to help Dad move and then UNloaded 3 vehicles at the new house. Then probably ruined my calorie intake by scarfing down KFC haha
