I've done it again!

Your Hidden Talent

You are both very knowledgeable and creative.

You tend to be full of new ideas and potential - big potential.

Ideas like yours could change the world, if you build them.

As long as you don't stop working on your dreams, you'll get there.

You Are: 80% Dog, 20% Cat

You and dogs definitely have a lot in common.

You're both goofy, happy, and content with the small things in life.

However, you're definitely not as needy as the average dog. You need your down time occasionally.

You Should Be A Poet

You craft words well, in creative and unexpected ways.

And you have a great talent for evoking beautiful imagery...

Or describing the most intense heartbreak ever.

You're already naturally a poet, even if you've never written a poem.

You Are Totally Like Your Mom

You and your mom are practically clones.

You think alike, and you even seem to read each other's minds.

You're definitely you're mother's child... and that's just fine with you.

You Are The Stuffing

You're complicated and complex, yet all your pieces fit together.

People miss you if you're gone - but they're not sure why.

You Belong in 1952

You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

I really should stop this now!

It really is a dog's life!

We have a young puppy named Harly visiting as part of his training for pet assisted therapy. His parents have a blog and posted about their first visit on Tuesday. Check it out here.

A View from the Window

This evening Jeff took a look out the kitchen window and saw a Blue Heron perched on the neighbor's patio cover. It stayed long enough for me to get out on the back deck for some birdwatching.


I love photos. I love the memory each brings to mind when I look at them. I recently started doing some scrapbooking along with making cards. I have so much fun finding new embellishments and stuff to decorate a page. This is one of my favorite pages.

You Are 73% Non Conformist

You are a pretty serious non conformist. You live a life hardly anyone understands.

And while some may call you a freak, you're happy with who you are.

Today is...

International Choclate Day!

So, enjoy some chocolate today!

Stressful Day

At 9:30 this morning, the doorbell rang. Who could that be I thought as I answered it still wearing my pajamas? (Yes, I wear my pajamas until everyone is up and dressed, then I go shower and dress. Trust me, if you did what I do, you would wait to shower, too!) Anyway, back to the door. "Hello, my name is Trevin Butler." It is our surveyor for our licensing. Yep, I open the door to our annual survey wearing my pajamas. Great first impression, huh!

To make a long story short, it is over and he is gone. I didn't get my wish of no citations, but the one we got is so bizarre. We were cited because I didn't document that each resident can evacuate the home within 3 minutes. Yes, I talked about it and, yes, each can do it. However, I didn’t write it in the screening paperwork. But I already have my correction summary ready to mail, so there!
So, we can continue this for at least one more year. And that is a good thing, I think…
