Pet sitting guide!

Do you have pets? If you do, sometimes it can be difficult to leave them when you have to go away. We will be heading to Universal Studios to meet up with the grand kids on Wednesday for a week. We are so excited to be "making memories" with them! Harry Potter here we come!

However, that means leaving the cat and three dogs with a sitter. Not too bad except when your pet sitter is from Italy (has only been here a year) and English is not his native language. He is adorable and loves dogs. He works for my husband and has been to our house many times but taking care of the pets at our house will be new for him. So how do I explain meals, routines, etc?

Saving those bulbs!

I was at Joann fabrics yesterday and just had to stop in at one of my favorite stores - Home Goods. Of course I didn't need anything, but thought I would just look at what was on Clearance. There they were, on the bottom shelf. Bulbs sprouting out of their boxes.

Dogs and Puppies over the Holidays

I have been as they say, "off the grid" for awhile. It was great spending time with family and friends over the holidays. As you may remember, I was fostering three puppies before Christmas. Needless to say, they were a joy to have over the holidays. My daughter came from California with her Dachshund and for Christmas, my sister-in-law brought her dog. With 5 dogs, 3 puppies, and 1 cat, it was quite the zoo. 
The puppies are really growing and becoming much more adventuresome.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I hope that everyone is ringing in the new year with hope in their hearts and a smile on their face. I new year is beginning and time to reflect. My daughter, husband and I sat last night and talked about the best and worst moments of 2014. We were so blessed, except for our precious Tiny passing and my daughter's cat Saddie passing, we could not think of anything else bad that happened. How awesome is that! God is good!

I hope that your new year is filled with many  hopes and dreams. I have not made any new year's resolutions yet, maybe later this week. For now I am continuing to enjoy the holidays. I must admit I have been offline for the past week and it has been wonderful just connecting with family and friends and enjoying our time together. My daughter has to go back to California Friday night so I am trying to be with her as much as possible. I will be sad when she leaves. 

Friends will be arriving soon to celebrate the new year with us. Be safe if you are traveling.
 Hope your have a very happy new year!
