Dog Coffee Anyone?

Oh, boy....  It's gonna be a looooooong day....

This is what happens when you wake your brain before it's ready.  Have to run da Husband's bike to da In-laws' this morning before getting my nails done at noon with the hopes of getting all my running around done so I can get the rest of my chores done before bed....  It's gonna be a race to the finish line!

Da Boys and Da Bricks

Friday da Boys and I went to a new shop called "Bricks 4 Kids".  They were able to create just about anything using the available bricks and accessories and pattern guides.  They had an absolute ball and I got to sit in a corner and chat up a new member for ECRG.  They do birthday parties, too!  Hmmmm....

Recipes Page is Up and Running!

Pralines!!!  These are Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Pralines from  They were a big hit at the crop I went to Saturday and she was right--quick and easy to make!  The croppin' buddies said they tasted like peanut butter fudge.

With that, note that I have the Recipes Page up and running with two recipes to start it off.  Go have a peek and, as always, leave a comment and tell me whatcha think!  :)

Okay--the blob of white in the creek--just off center?  Click on the pic and you'll see that it's a bitty turtle on a bitty rock....  Cracked me up.

Bad Goat and New Pages Alert

The white thing, with its head in the almond tree?  That's a local goat having breakfast.  Bad goat.
Elliott went up and said hi and I ALMOST got a pic of it--Elliott's tail was wagging at break-a-knee speed...

Yup--I'm back!  I started walking again Tuesday and am happy to say that I'm getting my 2.25 miles in at a 3.5 MPH speed and am hoping to start jogging again next week.  Yay!  

The surgery went well and though last week was basically a loss this week is going pretty well.  Glad to have it done and can't wait to be off all restrictions (though it is nice to use "I can't lift ____" as an excuse to get da Boys to carry something for me...).

NOW.  I have a BUNCH of new pics to share of food so I'm going to start two new pages--Food and Recipes.  Not sure how soon they'll ALL be up but I'm hoping to get a few done this morning so check back soon and often and as always, I love to hear your comments!  Especially now that I have it working!
