pics in picasa

We went to Ocean Shores over the weekend and had a blast! It was Whiskey's first time in a large body of water, and he also found a new best friend named Sassy. Instead of a thousand pics, I just added an album. [Jess-I have a few more of you and D I can send to you]

All of my pictures lately are of Whiskey or of wildlife around the house. This pretty much sums up my life :) Whiskey and I went for a walk today and then watered the flowers. And when I say I watered the flowers, I mean I watered Whiskey. He loves water and he was SOAKED.

The other day Matt found this. It was still connected to the roll in the bathroom.

He also found this.

"Mom! Look what I found!"

With the weather so warm, this is his favorite spot to nap.

"Please let me up on the couch!!!!"

Today while watering, I found these cute little ones:

They were sitting so perfectly on my dahlias and were perfect subjects for photos!

I couldn't get the lighting just right on this one, but he was too cute not to post

The rest are all very similar, but again, too cute not to post.

Matt usually finds these little ones in the grass when he mows.

See him at the bottom?

I thought I should take a breather from the sun and my book, and post some pics:

dark pic of tomatoes

oregano & basil



I call this the "Charlie Brown Herb Farm"

The new picture gallery

Up close

Whiskey eating my basil

Whiskey making his usual landslide on the hill

Whiskey sleeping at Daddy's feet

Jumping on Daddy

Sitting on the stairs pretending he's being good



cleaning up

Why is it that I feel like my spring cleaning was never done?? I would love to wash all of the windows, inside and out. I would love to wipe/vacuum out all of the windowsills. And I would love to be a little more organized, but it's summer and I love it! Cleaning will have to wait, I guess!

I put up some new pics in my front room (pics to follow). It already makes my home feel more like a home. When the weather starts to cool down, I think I will start painting walls again and attempting to decorate. Another thing on my list of to-dos: put plants on my hillside-too bad my dog will eat all of them right now.

I am now officially on the day shift. I get up at 5:00am and get home a little after 8:00pm. Luckily, I work 3 days a week because I am exhausted! I have the next 7 days off as usual, call me!
