Sister Shopping Day

Melissa and I had planned a shopping day months ago. We met up in Dawsonville, GA at the outlet mall and proceeded to shop the day away. We had every intention of doing some early Christmas shopping. We got a little done and a few things for ourselves! Although we spent the whole day there,…

Mark Off One More Project

Wade has been in New York for the week so I decided to paint our bedroom. My initial plan was to paint the trim white and then paint the red border above the picture molding. However, nothing is that easy. I also put another coat of yellow on the walls and two coats on the…

    Thanks. I have come to decide it is perfect – mostly because I don’t want to do any more painting!

No Cavities

I have posted before on my bad luck with doctors. Well I found a great dentist today. I called to schedule a cleaning 6 months ago (which is when I needed it) and the end of September was the earliest they could get me in. I decided to wait, and I’m glad I did. The…

    Holly,

    I feel as if we have not talked for months!! However, I just had a wonderful visit with you on your blog. Three months worth. I have been so far behind!

    It sounds as if you all are going to town on your house and the pictures look lovely. I am so glad you are usually lots of color. Would you believe we have finally started doing something about ours so I can appreciate what you are going through.

    The first room we have completed is the downstairs rec room which I now call my library. We had it done in fall colors and I just love it. All of my books will now have a place and hopefully I will actually be able to find them when I am looking. It is going to take until next spring before most of it gets completed but it will be worth the wait. Your solution of removing paint from hardware sounds like a winner and I will be trying it before long.

    Billy and Laura and Ken are on their way here for Budd’s Creek weekend. They thought they would be in by ten but it is now after eleven and I haven’t heard. We have had some bad storms in the area tonight so that may have delayed them. This is giving me some computer time that I never seem to have lately.

    And now for the pets. I adore them. What a wonderful thing to do foster parenting for animals. Guess the hardest part is giving them up when the time comes. Bet Madison loves the company.

    Tyler is thriving in first grade and is turning into the little athelete. Loves basketball and soccer. When he is showing me his stuff like making a goal Katrina proceeds to compete by doing her dance routine. It becomes quite a show. She has decided to be a rock star for Halloween and is practicing with her rhinestone mike!

    Can’t wait to see you’all for the Halloween weekend. Let me know your schedule and I can meet you. If you need a car you can use one of ours.

    It looks as if my space may be limited here so will say goodby for now and will try and do better with staying in touch.

    Love,
    AG

And I Thought Tubbles was Big

I got an email from the Brittany Rescue coordinator today. They had another dog they wanted me to foster. She called this dog a Sumo Brittany Wrestler. And here I thought Tubbles was a big dog. Sadly we had to say only one foster at a time.

Tubbles, Come!

Wade and I took the dogs for a walk, but they are little hellions when you try to take them both. We decided to try something new and took them over to Wade’s work. There is a large fenced in field behind his building. I thought they would stay around us and play. Tubbles had…

On the Road Again, Just Can’t Wait to Get on the Road Again

We made it. The drive from Anderson, SC to Memphis, TN took us 8 hours. The dogs got the backseat and were better behaved than kids would have been. Madison took the seat and Tubbles took the floorboard. Tubbles has a bad back leg and was so stiff she couldn’t walk on it when we…

Woof, Woof, Growl

Dog Parks are interesting places. In a big city atmosphere you have a small neighborhood feel. Wade and I lived in midtown Atlanta for a year and never met a neighbor. We took Madison to the dog park in Piedmont Park (right down the street) and met all kinds of people. I guess having a…
