Lots O' Random Stuff...

Yesterday I got a lovely package in the mail. It contained two Fontwerks acrylic stamps and a bunch of lovely tags! It was a present from Noelia! She said I was the victim of her first RAK. I think this is the only time I've been excited to be a victim!Every woman should marry a man who cooks. That way he will never starve if she isn't home. And even better she won't starve if she doesn't cook! Which is why it's a good thing for me. I'm not a cook. I don't like to do it. I can't pay attention long enough. It's too putzy and most recipes are just too long and complicated. I can bake. I love to bake. But cooking is not my thing. And I think the more pans, pots, and utensils Morgan can use the happier he is. Here are two of his most recent creations. He loves to make pizza and bake bread. Both were delicious!

Here is a little of what is going on in our house. Spring! This is the orchid Nikki gave me when I left school last spring. I am so happy it's blooming. It's beautiful to watch and it also means I didn't kill it!
Our backyard at 6:45 this morning. I thought the lilac bush was lovely with the snow on the branches. Not uncommon for March in MN!
And here is the front yard at about 10am. We are under a winter advisory until sometime on Friday. Morgan was hoping to have a snow day. Although I don't think he was hoping for it as much as Maggie was!! I'm sorry it didn't happen for either of you! Maybe tomorrow!
I love to watch it snow! (Miranda, don't tell mom that!) (My mom DOES NOT like snow!) We may even have blizzard conditions today! I think that would be soo cool! But not until after Morgan gets home. (Right now it's really coming down!!)
Owen has a rocking horse. And it ROCKS!
Excersaucers are waterproof! And it's a "good thing"!
(please tilt your head to the side!)
Big dogs like to play in the snow!

The 2P's challenge today is about pets. Are you a pet person? If so, what is your ideal pet?? What would you just love to have one day??? if you don't have it already?

As you can see we have a pet. Ludwig, a 7 year old retired greyhound. He used to race. Now he just runs laps in our backyard. Although I think he prefers digging holes to China! As to being a pet person or not... I think not. I love Ludwig. He's our first "baby". But he can be very dirty and stinky! And when he sheds there is hair all over the place for months. So I wouldn't give him up but I am not looking to add more animals to our family either. I grew up with lots of pets and animals. At one time we had 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hamsters, and some fish. Fish are my least favorite pets. They can't tell you what is wrong and you usually don't figure out there is a problem until it's too late. Hamsters are my next least favorite. For the same reason as the fish. I just like them better because they are fun and furry.
So, I like animals. I just like them best when they live with other people. I can visit. I can play with them and cuddle them. And then go home without them! It's how I used to feel about children. Well, it's how I still feel about children. But I like having Owen. I guess I have a double standard about animals and children. And people too. I like MY animals, children, and people. I'm just not too fond of a lot of the rest of the ones out there!! I think it has to do with not adjusting well to change. And new situations. But once I do, I'm okay.

And now I've got everyone thinking I'm a bitchy girl who doesn't like anything or anyone!!! But that's not true. I'm just very particular about lots of stuff. (And when my friends and family read this they will laugh and think "that's an understatement!)

Hi Heather,
You left me a comment on my blog about the banner. Email me if you need easy instructions.

Heather, I just love all the wonderful photos you shot! I love the picture of Owen on his horse! I can't believe you guys are getting another blizzard! That is just insane. We are supposed to get a lot of rain for the next 2 days. Sometimes I think snow sounds a little better. lol.
I guess you can call me a "bitchy person" also. I like certain kids, people, and animals but the rest I can't wait to get away from after a couple of hours. Sound familiar?

Love the pictures of Owen! We are having similar weather conditions here too. Your dog is beautiful, I'm a dog person. Glad to know you liked your RAK :)

I am so jealous....of your RAK not the snow! I want those stamps and tags! Are the tags fontwerks too? I think I see the F logo on them.

Great photos! And what fun to receive a RAK in the mail - a welcome change from junk mail and bills, right? :) Enjoy your goodies!
