….to getting my girl and my boy. I didn’t hear a thing all week so I have to believe that means Kaitlynn found her niche and had a GREAT time! I’ll update you when I see her. : )
Meanwhile, I did enjoy a very quiet week at home. Powell, Tim and I completely enjoyed the mellow household (if you don’t count the four 12-year olds who spent the night with Powell on Tuesday….see, I’m serious, I let five 12 year-olds stay at my house….OVERNIGHT):
and time to focus on just the three of us. We bought a new hammock….I’ll show you a picture of that soon and I’ve enjoyed hanging out in it and reading this:
Now I warn you that the first 50 pages or so are HARD to get through. But it’s so worth it. Really an amazing book. I also enjoyed some creative energy this week. You see, last week my creative energy consisted of finding projects for Kaitlynn and I to do together. While that was fun and we enjoyed it, it was nice to work on a few things that were just mine. So, here are Kaitlynn and I’s projects from last week:
Like I said, they were all fun and I really enjoyed them. But I also enjoyed making a gift for my sister and a scraptherapy page for myself. You can check those out in my portfolio at SIStv. Meanwhile, I can’t decide whether or not to paint a table in my scrapbook room. The walls are red and off-white colored and I have a table I am thinking of painting….are you ready…..a mellow turquoise-ish color. I know. That’s why I can’t decide. But it would match one of the colors in the rug I have in there. I don’t know. Still mulling that one over.
Finally, I haven’t given the dogs much facetime lately so i’ll show you something we thought was hysterical. The other night we went outside to eat this delicious thing:
We decided to give the dogs a treat also…..rawhides! They LOVE their rawhides. They DON’T like sharing their rawhides. They all know Keturah will exert her ability to collect all three rawhides if they don’t find a quiet spot. Now picture a clock. At 12:00 and about 100 feet away I saw this:
Then I looked to my right, I’d say about 5:00 and I saw this, sitting (of course) about five feet away from me (because Floyd never wanders far from me):
Then I said, “Where’s Kodiak?” Of course, about 100 feet and at 9:00 was this:
See, I don’t exxaggerate: they DON’T risk sharing a bone. (editor’s note: Keturah has since dug up Kodiak’s bone and claimed it as her own, Floyd was almost finished with his, walked away to bark at a bird and lost it…to Keturah….and Keturah, well, she’s 13, the alpha dog and we let her get away with it).
