We have a new dog. I know, it seems like the day before yesterday I was blogging about Bonnie, and all the reasons the Beras are not ready for a dog...but those dang Beras don't learn lessons every well. So, meet Marley. He's a chocolate lab who had too much energy for his previous owners. He's 8 months old and is excited about life! He's a really good dog, but has lots to learn. At first the kids were not too excited (did I mention he has alot of energy?) but they are getting use to him, and he is learinging to live with kids (ie...when pounced on cora crumples to the ground, and her mom doesn't like that...things like that!) He is learning to fetch really well, but our old Iris could have shown this young pup up in that department! So, here's a few pictures of him...he is as easy to photograph as cora...they are moving too fast for the camera! But you get the idea...happy monday!

absent blogger

where in the world have i been? it's been over 2 months since i've blogged?! where has the time gone? i just don't know. time just goes by too fast. i haven't cared to sit at the computer much lately. i don't have much time now...but i was downloading LOTS of pictures (my camera was full) and i thought i might post a quick blog about a cute stool i made...well, not made..just spruced up a bit. i found this at a garage sale for $2, and have had it over a year. breanna sent me this blog, and i thought...i can do that. so, here's the pictures to document my project. i am pretty happy with the final product, but i did get some lumps on top. i didn't put enough modge podge under the paper..lumps were the result. oh well...still better than rusty and nasty! i will do better at blogging..i have lots of pictures i will try to catch up now!
