August 2022 Blog Train and Fan Freebie

Summer has been moving right along and here it is August already!  Summer seems to fly by way too quickly if you ask me.  I pretty much spend my summers outside and enjoy every minute of it gardening, training horses and just soaking in the sun.  Never a boring minute.  And we've had just enough rain to keep everything green and growing :)

If you read my text above, now you know why you've been getting graffiti as a Fan Freebie for the past few months :)  Gotta run . . . the great outdoors is calling me!

The Boo Update --

I came in from outside and found Boo like this.  Had to take a picture!  The back of his head is hanging off the barstool, as is his hind leg closest to the cabinet.  I just shake my head.  Sound asleep and no care in the world.  I wonder what he dreams about.


See ya next month!

July 2022 Blog Train and Fan Freebie

 It's been a long time since I've even been near an ocean, but with this month's colors, it just seemed like the right way to go.  The little mermaid in the bottle frame is my granddaughter, Claire.  And she wanted everyone to know that she doesn't really have a tail -- just in Grandma's computer.

I set up the frame in the sand so that all you need to do is slip your photo behind it.  I also included just the bottle frame alone so you can position it anyway you want.  Just slip a sand border behind it and a sand border in front of it.  Tilt the bottle frame any way you want.

Thought you could use some "wishy-washy" graffiti to dress up your pages!

The Boo Update --

I had to take Boo to the Vet last week for an eye problem.  It just didn't look right and, as time went on, it seemed to be getting worse.  There were times that one eye was totally open and the other partially closed.  That is not normal and the 3rd eyelid looked swollen.  In this photo, I'm not sure if he was trying to distract me to get the coffeemaker going or daring me to tackle him once again to get his eye meds in.  The one thing I have learned is that saying "hold still" does not work!  After a week of meds, his eye is looking much better.


Til next time . . .

Well, you can call me "happy"!  My irises are blooming, the delphiniums have their first buds, the bleeding hearts are in full bloom and all of the other plants and flowers are growing beautifully.  This is going to be a good summer!  I turned my horses out to pasture, just for an hour each day until their digestive systems can get used to green grass again after eating hay all winter long.  They were like little kids turned loose on a playground.  They run, jump and rodeo kick the first day out.  As soon as I open the gate, I just stay out of the way :)  It really is a sight to see.  I love it.

I'm not sure how Boo gets through that little door, but he still fits.  He usually prefers to sprawl out on my bed, but on rainy days, he seems to prefer to cuddle up in small spaces.  For comparison, when I first brought him in, he could sit in that door opening without his ears touching.  I honestly never expected him to grow this big -- from a fourth of an ounce to 20 lbs.  Who knew?!!


See ya next month!

May 2022 Blog Train and Fan Freebie

 May is finally here!  The days have mostly been in the 40s, sometimes in the 50s.  But last weekend, it actually hit 81 degrees!  Unfortunately, the wind was blowing so hard, nobody could actually enjoy it.  We're back down in the 40s again and . . . no wind . . . of course.  I kind of have to laugh at myself though.  You know life is good when the only thing I have to complain about is the weather!  It's just that I'm so tired of wearing fleece and winter coats.

Where there's a will, there's a way!  This old faucet finally wore out and was dripping about one drop per minute or two.  That's why you don't see any water running :)  And, he's sitting on top of my big pasta kettle that was supposed to be drying in the sink.  He is soooo spoiled!


See you next month!
