Spring Has Sprung!

Happy first day of Spring!

Hopefully the sun will keep shining and the roses will be more beautiful and bountiful than they were last year!

lies the seed 
that with the sun’s love 
in the spring 
becomes the rose

Zombie, Zombie, Zombie eh eh eh

Wow, it’s Ash Wednesday a big Catholic day for us. I can’t eat anything but veggies and fruit, but I’m leaning more towards the chocolate since I feel like an itty bitty zombie. Last night at around 10:30 I was watching tv in the family room, when all of a sudden I heard a loud bang, looked outside and saw a bright yellow light. At first I thought God was punishing me after reading what my friend posted on Mother Teresa and how at times she felt as if God wasn’t there for her. Then I thought my neighbor who had been let out of the institution shot his girlfriend, or it could have been the neighbors (aka parents of Lucy goosie’s baby’s daddy) shooting one of their cows. Well, I’ve chosen to believe that The Zodiac did not pay us a visit, but it was a UFO. Whatever it was, I didn’t fall asleep until the wee hours of the morning. Thanks to the Sheriffs who say they’re going to answer their cell phones in case of an emergency, but don’t….makes us country folk without a nearby police station feel real safe.

With that being said, my dog Lucy goosie baby floosie and my cat, Olivia whom I have not introduced formally to the blog are still napping.  To those of you who love my Lucy, and want to see my precious little Olivia Newton John, please do. In the meantime I’m going to try to muster up some energy so I can take down some wallpaper.

Lucy hears the deadbeat dad, barking for her affection. Little does he know, she's fixed! Girls...when will they ever learn?

And one last thing…before I go, Lucy wants you to have a wonderful rest of your day! I just realized I’m speaking for the dog, I really need some zzzzzzzzzz’s!

Lucy being Lucy....she's such a floosie!

Etsy :: Thirtydash9

I knew when I found Thirtydash9’s etsy shop, that I had to post her special order dog pendants! They’re a great gift for the dog lover in your life, or for yourself! Owner, Jen believes (as do I) that all dogs are photogenic. Her work has been featured in ‘Citydog’ and ‘Bark’ magazine. She creates these one of a kind pendants out of your favorite photo of Fido, and fused glass.

“Little Linus”

Jen is so talented at what she does, she used the first photo for Linus face and body, but used his facial expression from the second photo…making for a truly unique piece.
