Things You Cannot Do With a Puppy

(these are mostly if you do not lock them up)

eat where ever you want

sit on the floor to do anything



use the computer

or anything where they can lay on your hands to stop you

enjoy the silence; silence is not good

have clean floors

clean in general

keep their toys put away

leave your shoes out

have the dishwasher open

take a shower

leave water bottles on side tables

but nothing beats coming home and they’re beyond excited to see you



My little puppy is getting so big!



She will be seven months soon! She is such a sweetheart and has such a great personality.
But I wish she was still the tiny puppy she used to be.



She hogs the bed. She loves stealing the pillows and blankets.


But I love her so much.

Half Way There

I don’t really know half way to where … I don’t even know where I’ve been or where my time is going.

But I’ve made it half way through October. Not that I’m rushing time or anything but I want out of this funk. 

Recently work has been a complete drag.

I think it’s partially because there hasn’t been a lot of work to do. I’ve been ahead for about two weeks now. I’m not rushing through anything but sometimes tasks are so simple they take half a day and I’m stuck twiddling my thumbs.
Since there isn’t enough work to keep me busy for all eight hours I have been getting so sick of the same old routine. Trying to look busy – trying to find something to do. Don’t get me wrong, sitting around doing nothing and getting paid for it is awesome – but it definitely gets old. Even as I type this I’m at work!

After work my routine is the same as well but that’s okay because I enjoy it and it keeps me busy and entertained.
I drive the thirty minutes home and I’m always greeted by sweet Annabel. Danny is working nights so he’s home when I get there – sleeping. His third shift sucks! But we always get to have dinner together and hang out before he leaves for the night.

Annabel is crazy hyper when Danny isn’t there at night – I don’t know what it is. She’ll sleep with me for a couple hours then it’s play time but when Danny is home she sleeps through the night with us. So lately I’ve been having to put her in her crate in the middle of the night. I feel bad but I sure do sleep a lot better and it’s not so hard to get up in the morning.

I hope to get back to more crafts soon – and hopefully some fall photography sessions. And I’ll be starting a new blanket ASAP – hopefully tonight!

Monday Fun-day?!

I ended up getting stuck with a doctor appointment smack dab in the middle of the day so the only way to handle this situation was to take the whole day off 🙂


I started the morning with breakfast, enjoying a cup of coffee and hanging out with Annabel. We went for a walk early on (9:30 am is still early to me). But we live in such a quite neighborhood-it was so nice and we had sunny, crisp, fall weather-my favorite!


Here’s the issue ^^
half way through the walk she gets bored and wants to play with the leash…

I got to work on a crochet project as well.

After my appointment I got to spend time with my mom. We went to lunch and shopping. I finally found a shelving unit to put under our wall collage that I’ve started up. It’s not complete-I have no idea what to put on there or how to decorate it. But I’m sure it won’t take long. A crock pot was also invested in. Which means cooking is in my future-yuck!


But all in all it was a great day. I wish I had everyday off to hang out and do whatever I want and spend time with the beast.
