Hey there!

I know, you don't even know who I am anymore. People have probably stopped reading my blog - well, that's because I haven't been blogging!  lol
All is good here.  We have had some wild and crazy weather.  Monday, we had snow - and it snowed!  We lucked out here tho, about 20 miles south of us, they actually had 10 inches!
March - in like a lion
 Yesterday was Wednesday and it was 67 here and today is supposed to be 70.  Crazy weather!

I finally got the website done, but have spent a lot of time tweaking it.  Had to change a few things around, and I've now added another person who does beautiful drawings and sketches.  Her name is Peggy and here is her blog link.  Go visit - she doesn't have many followers so peek in on her and follow her progress. :-)

We have also added some doggie jewelry to our website, done by the same amazing talented person who makes the horsehair jewelry! 

Poochie Pendant - this one is mine!
 This pendant is going to be Evan's - when we're visiting people and doing exciting stuff like that.  When we are doing nose fun and running the fields, I don't think we'll be wearing it as I don't want him to lose it.  It's being gifted to me by Mitzi, for building the website and inviting her to join me.  I'm also getting one for Gabbi, and that one is red.  It'll look very nice on her!  I will have to get a new harness and leash for her tho....hers are pink and not my favorite color and red looks SO pretty on a white doggie.

I've also taken on a part time job, working for the dog trainer in an admin position.  I'm really happy about it.  I almost wish I had more work like this so I could earn some extra money.  Although, I don't want to be tied to the computer all the time.  When I sit at the computer too long, I have a lot of sciatica pain.  It's a real pain in the behind!  ha ha.

I'm getting out to the trainers to walk a lot too.  There are hills and at first, I had to stop a LOT just to breathe.  Now I'm able to pretty much keep going at a slow pace and do the hills and flat land.  We walk a large ex-horse pasture and into the woods (which isn't fenced) and the dogs love walking off leash.  It's a little pack walk!  It works, is great for the dogs, and great for me.

I have a new camera too - not sure if I mentioned that before.  It's quite fun to play with, has 21x zoom, and I'm learning a lot.  It's not the Kodak I'd hoped to get, it's a Nikon, but I'm ok with that.  It takes regular batteries and not a specific battery pack.  And to be honest, it's not a small camera so anything larger than 21x zoom might have been too big and bulky for me anyway.  The one thing I can't get used to is the lens cap. LOL.  I keep forgetting to take it off!  It'll become habit tho, so I'll get it eventually.

I've ordered some beautiful fabric for making lap quilts.  I can hardly wait to get started!  I need to find the coordinating fabrics for the backings and order that soon too.

I need to find something to do when we're sitting in front of t.v. at night.....I feel like I'm wasting time but watching shows we've recorded from the night before, or watching shows we like to watch, is our "together" time......but I still would like to keep my hands busy!

Well, today is going to be beautiful, and I need to get it started.  I have some computer work to do, a friend to visit, and grocery shopping (ick).  I told hubby to save the grocery shopping for the weekend, but he's going to be babysitting Gabbi and he doesn't like to leave her alone.  I told him, he can't sit in the house all weekend while I'm at the clinic!  But he loves his Gabbi, and she adores him!

Have a wonderful day, a wonderful weekend, and live it like ya mean it!  :-)
