More Puppy Gang, (Plus!) Anniversary, (And!) Waldorf Salad

It’s been busy around these parts since the last post.  First, we had some family guests on Friday night–our very first guests at the new house.  There are definitely still piles of stuff that aren’t where they should be, but all in all, I think the house worked just fine.  That was nice to see….

On the Move

I tried to write a post about moving yesterday, but nothing seemed right.  It’s safe to say that Scott and I have been on an emotional roller coaster for the past few days/weeks/months. We moved across the state of Virginia on Sunday, with most of our stuff to follow behind when we find a new…

Berries and Doggies and More, Oh My!

Last week included some berries from a local farm.  They were delicious berries, so they deserve a shout-out. See what I mean?  [Okay, you can’t see that they’re delicious, but you can see that they’re beautiful and bright and such.] Raspberries are my favorite, and add to that a day of sunshine and happy dogs…

There and Back Again (not a hobbit’s story)

Canine Friends Friday

I might just come out and say that Fridays are dog video day or something.  There’s a pattern developing. This particular video contains a near-lethal dose of cute.  The song about being loved as you are and the happy slow motion dog almost make my heart burst open. Before you write me off as a…
