The Beginning of a Friendship?

The Beginning of a Friendship? This morning, with little fanfare, I spied Gidget and Cinder sharing the same space. No  barking, no hissing. This is a first! Miss Kitty submitted to gentle sniffing and snuffling. Their tiny little noses gently touched. Might this be the beginning of a friendship?... Read more »

From My Window

From My Window I work from home a couple of days a week. The bulk of that time I’m glued to my computer, the time passing without notice. Yet, there are those moments when I wander to the kitchen for coffee or chase down a too quiet puppy, and I find myself distracted by the... Read more »

That Dog!

That Dog! It’s safe to say, that dog will eat anything. And everything. This morning, as I was gearing up to clean, the roll of paper towels fell off the counter and off she went. She had a grand old time trying to keep away from me. Unfortunately, it’s not the... Read more »

A New Normal

A New Normal It’s hard to believe that Gidget has been with us for four months now. This little ball of fluff with the perpetually bad hair day is closing in on seven pounds. Despite her mini size, the vet says she’s on the pudgy side, so we’ve had to scale back... Read more »

Christmas Critter Tree

Christmas Critter Tree I was feeling a little down when my Christmas gifts to my folks weren’t delivered in Pennsylvania when they were supposed to. And of course, I couldn’t find my receipt with the tracking number. Finally, on Christmas Eve, Mom called to report that my box... Read more »

Paul’s Christmas Dove Wreath

Paul’s Christmas Dove Wreath This past weekend, while I was busy sewing felt birds for my Maine Backyard Bird Tree and my Owl Wish You a Merry Christmas Wreath, Paul was working on a project using my Christmas Dove pattern.

Mud Room Makeover

Mud Room Makeover The mudroom makeover started in September with these feedbag recycle bags hanging in the mudroom. They replaced the overflowing plastic buckets that used to take up floor space. The “honey-do” list continued with these wooden cube units that Hannah... Read more »

Blame it On the Moon

Blame it On the Moon Blame it on the moon. That’s what I said when I arrived to work later than planned this morning. When I saw the full moon behind the mist over frosty barrens, I had to pull over and take about five dozen pictures of the exact same view. This evening, I attended... Read more »

Those Ears!

Those Ears! Hannah and I hoped that Gidget would keep her floppy ears. However, at 14 weeks, it’s pretty obvious that isn’t going to be the case. She’s got this one ear up, one ear down thing going on – it’s as if she’s saluting. It’s... Read more »

A Cute Battle of Wills

A Cute Battle of Wills This is one of my favorite pictures of Gidget. As she was sleeping, I tip-toed over and just as I snapped the pic with my iPhone, her eyes popped open. Ten weeks old today, Gidget is staging a coop. She thinks her cuteness is a trump card allowing her to rule the... Read more »

Gidget at 8 Weeks

Gidget at 8 Weeks Although still a young puppy who sleeps a lot, Gidget has moments where her personality has begun to shine. Here’s a peak at her playful side with belly rubs. And a short video clip featuring Gidget. Enjoy,... Read more »

Meet Gidget!

Meet Gidget! Following what seems like the two longest weeks of our lives, Paul and I drove to Augusta to pick up Gidget and bring her home yesterday. As Paul says, “She’s impossibly cute.” He hadn’t met her before, but he fell instantly in love with this... Read more »
