More Puppy Love

My churrens spent part of their Spring Break visiting their paterfamilias kin out in North Carolina and weren’t here when the Boy Dog showed up.

I think it’s safe to say that my kids dig the Boy Dog. What do you think?

I want it noted that I haven’t seen a gleam in my Baby Girl’s eye like this in awhile. 

The Manchild is all about some Boy Dog too, it just wasn’t photographed. The MC is one of those that animals are sorta drawn to and this was no exception. 

I’ll put up more pictures of #2 and Le Pup later.  As I expected, those two are just too cute together.

A Reminder

Note to Self:  Go to Centennial Park more often.

It’s even funner when you go to Centennial Park and meet new babies.

Foster’s first night was pretty good.  He wanted to play about 1:30 a.m, which he did.   He is doing SO good on the potty training thing.  I can tell when he has to go poopie because he starts running sideways.  Heh.  He cracks me up when he barks at his little hamburger chew toy thingie.

God’s Coloring Book

Other than the allergies that accompany it, I love Spring.  I wish it lasted longer but I like it while it’s here.

I’ve always loved Redbud trees.  That’s one of my favorite sights of Spring.  Reminds me of growing up on Spring Valley Dr. (how appropriate) and the redbud tree that was right outside our kitchen window. 

I have one outside my front door.  I started taking pictures of it everyday last weekend to sorta watch it’s blooming. 

014This was right about the time that storm blew through last Saturday afternoon.

I believe this was Monday morning’s version…

Tuesday…

This one was Thursday morning before the other storm came through. (I had the absolute WORST headache I think I’ve ever had Thursday and I still think it was cause of the pressure changes and impending tornadic activity in the air. )

We interrupt this post about the pretty. Redbud trees to show you the commotion that ensued at my work during the Tornado Warning Thursday afternoon.  There was a touchdown not too far from work on Murfreesboro Rd.  Funny how as scared as I can get during weather like this, when everybody else is freaking out, I was calm.  Go figya. Maybe I’m just getting old and don’t give a rip no more?

I was running late Friday morning and didn’t think I’d get my Redbud picture that day but when I got home last night, I was able to get this.  I was glad I missed the morning shot.  I kept hearing Hank singing “The silence of a falling star…lights up a purple sky”…

I Kinda Liked This Monday…

I did something today I haven’t done in three months…I got up and went to work! I was a happy camper to have somewhere to go today. I did go off and forget to take my ADD medicine though and other than a headache, luckily, it didn’t affect me too bad since it was your typical, Orientation, where you mostly sit and listen. 

Thank ya all for your kind words, prayers and encouragement over the last few months. I especially want to thank my agent, His Sarcastic-ness

I’m in a Training class of 10 people.  I like to think of it like we were the Finalists ala American Idol.  It started out with some 350+ people applying for these positions.  It was narrowed and narrowed and according to HR Guy….we were the “Cream o’da Crop.”  Most of us victims of lay offs.  I am grateful indeed.  More than I can tell you.

So, I have to show you something great on a totally different subject matter (Did I mention I went to work today without taking my ADD medicine?)

  Now, I know I impress with my name-dropping and such. I love to brag about how I went to school with the likes of Ashley Judd, Jeff Cease (formerly of the Black Crowes, and now my newest oldest pal Eric…..well, I think my two teens have me  beat.

I did not know until this evening, that the Manchild and his sister are schoolmates of Cousin It’s grandson!  Black Crowes, movies…..pshaw!  That right there is just plain cool.

Sun Shine On Me

I can’t help it.  Sunrises are one of my favorite things in the world.

And sunrises are great, too, when the light reflects on the wall…

FGF-Cornbread and Butterbeans

Friday again?  That means we have to feel good.  Oh kids….you are gonna feel good after this.

I am in love.  Don’t get all excited now.  There’s not a new feller in my world or nothing like that.  But I have done gone and fallen in love with the Carolina Chocolate Drops.  I’ve been hearing of them here and there for awhile and somehow, haven’t seen them or heard them…until this week.  I am obsessed. 

Bet you haven’t heard any good kazoo playing in awhile, have you?  Have you ever heard any good kazoo playing?  Well, you’re a’fittin to:

How fun is that??? I think you need some Cornbread and Butterbeans to go with your Memphis Shakedown.

Sunshine….Makes Me High

God outdid Himself this morning.  Glad I didn’t miss it.
