Egg-citing Eggs

I wish I was more artistically inclined.  I have great vision in my head, but poor execution thru my fingers. 

Take, for eggs-ample, Easter eggs. I have always admired the ultra cool things people have been able to create on these tiny canvas's.

In years gone by mine have looked like this...
 or maybe this if I got the right package of dye "stuff"...
or even this, if I felt egg-ceptionally creative.
  But, never in my wildest dreams, could I make something like these works of art! You name it, there are talented people out there who can make it.  

From Star Wars, Anime, Angry Birds, South Park, Family Guy, and Homer Simpson, to Hello Kitty, the Pink Panther, Garfield, and even Walking Dead Zombie Eggs....people come up with just about everything. How cool would it be to find that the Easter Bunny left some of these gems in your yard?

Have a wonderful day, however you chose to spend it!

Getting back into it.

I'm ready to play. I might switch it up a little having to include at least one of my pups in each photo...but I haven't decided yet.  But...I'm ready to get back into it.

Dancing "Nana"

I ran across this video and it put a smile on my face, so I thought I'd share it.  It actually reminds me of an old friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, so as not to embarrass her.

Be sure to watch until the very last couple of seconds, and have the volume up at the 2:33 mark. What a crack up!

We should all be that hip when we are 88!

Hang in there with me...

Every morning I wake up with the best intentions of blogging. I have pictures and stories to share GALORE. But it seems that once the day gets rolling, things (and mainly time) gets away from me.

Please hang in there with me. I'm working on getting caught up with some things, settling a few issues I've been dealing with, and checking off a few items on my long overdue "to do" list.

I'll be back soon, promise.

Cuddle Time & More

The weather here is cold and wet. Not that I'm complaining, but I wish I could just be cuddled up and cozy like these two.
Must be nice!'s not to be...I have too many things going on today. Exciting things!  I've already been up to Long Beach and back today (about 180 miles round trip) and now I am home with Pickle putting the finishing touches on picking up the house. She is a great helper and I appreciate her coming down for the weekend.  You see, AJ is coming home from Indiana for Spring Break tomorrow, and he is bringing his girlfriend Alex.  We are very excited to meet her.

We've got a busy week full of fun - touristy stuff planned. She's never been to California before so we'll try to squeeze a lot in while she is here, and of course, get some quality visiting time in with our boy. 

I am REALLY excited, and that's putting it mildly.  The weather is supposed to get really nice starting Sunday so we should be good to go -and go and go!!

So, high ho, high ho, it's off to clean I go.

I've been called a lot of things in my time, but "slacker" hasn't been one of them.  I do feel like I've been neglecting this poor blog though, and I feel bad about it.  I love writing here and posting pictures, sharing my life's mundane details, etc.  I'll try to do better going forward, but no promises.  It seems that life is busier than ever nowadays, and while I'm not complaining, I do wish that there were just a few more hours in each day.

Now, in an attempt to catch you up on what I've been doing - I'll share a few photos of the last couple of days with you.

Never a dull moment...that's for sure.

Monday was Dad's birthday. He would have been 84.
 I've been doing lots of fun stuff with the dogs, both with my Love on a Leash group, and my Golden group.


 We've received some very touching memorial gifts from our friends, including this plaque from Jill and Jeremy.

Someone sent this to me anonomously.  Pretty cool, but I wish I knew who to thank.
 And of course we've been missing Jack.

 My friend Teresa and her Mom, Pat, had this pillow made for me.  I just love it! That's my boy!

Looking forward

Only a very few of you will know why I am posting this...and that's ok. I'll just let the rest of you use your imagination.

It's one of those things that when I read it, it was a lightbulb moment. 

I saw a little post the other day on facebook and it was very appropriate. It said, "Stop looking back, that's not the direction you are going."  Now, if I can just remember to keep my eyes forward, I'll be in good shape.

'nuff said.

Have a fabulous weekend.  I plan to.
