When your dog feels the same way as you do about waking up…

My sister periodically sends me hand made cards in the mail. She enjoys making them and will use any excuse to make and send a card to anyone she thinks or knows will appreciate getting one. This is the most recent one I’ve received, for the start of the autumn season. When I get a new card from her I pop it into a little card holder my dad made – it’s actually a recipe card holder but I find that on a shelf holding one of my sister’s cards is a nice decorative touch to the kitchen. I keep all the cards my sister sends, though at the moment they’re all just scattered about in different boxes. I really ought to get a scrap book or something to keep them in so they are all together and safe. Some day…

Until next time. xoxo

While J was trying to get the burn pile going recently (and yes “trying” = it was not successful) I was sitting on his steps watching. A grasshopper had me preoccupied a while before I spotted this little skink by my feet. This was the only picture I managed to get of it, as once it knew I had realized it was there it took off. 

Until next time. xoxo

One of very few houseplants I have that the little info stake remained in tact and with the plant happens also to be one of my favorites due to the colors. 

The info stake for this one reads “I am Croton ‘Bush on fire’ Codiaeum“. I tried to just take a picture of the stake as well but it refused to come out clear, it has a QR code my phone kept wanting to focus on though even when I covered it, the lettering just would not photograph sharply. Perhaps something about the way it was printed.

 Anyway I had taken a couple pictures of this plant for this post when I realized how dusty the leaves had gotten, parked in a corner of the living room. That would not do! So I carried the pot over to the kitchen sink and sprayed it down to clean it off a bit. Then figured hey, plants plus droplets of water = overdone according to some but always fun in my opinion! Thus today’s  NFF was born. 😘

Until next time. xoxo

My dad and niece just left to begin their trip home after their brief visit. We mostly hung out at home, weather, duration of their visit and other things making it difficult/impossible to really do much of anything else. But that was fine with me. I am sad now that they have left. 

They brought me a treat from a favorite bakery back in Pittsburgh. 

It is two cupcakes decorated to look like a puppy. (No it is not my birthday – just a little treat for the sake of having it!)

Until next time. xoxo

Princess tucked herself in for a nap under the couch cover. Something she has developed a habit of doing frequently. I tuck the cover back into place (as well as the one on the loveseat) just to have her pull it up and tuck herself in again in a matter of minutes. Rascal fusses with the covers too but when she tucks herself in under them she stays totally under them so she can’t be seen. 

Until next time. xoxo
