Snow Dogs at Farmington

We have an awesome old plantation home/land near our place. It’s the neighborhood spot to take your dogs to run around. There’s a ton of room, a pretty view, and you get to watch your dogs run mach 10, happy as can be. We are here at least 3 or 4 days a week and Tango and Churchill LOVE it. 
Exhibit A: 

They run like maniacs when they first get there, then 
Tango takes off alone to pee on every bush, tree and post that he can find, 
claiming all as his own. He’s a bit of an alpha… 
But while he’s doing that, Churchill sits. 
And waits. 
Until it’s time to strike!!! 

It’s hilarious. 
Fun is had by all. 
At least for about 15 minutes until we’re close to frostbite and have to head back home…
We’re ready for warmer temps are here.

Stretching with Animals Pt. 2

I have to stretch as soon as I finish working out, 
or it doesn’t get done. 
Stretching is hard when you’ve got two dogs in the house. 
You’re on THEIR level. 
Which means it’s time to play… (like last time
or snuggle… 
Tango, helping me with my adductors: 
And Churchill providing moral support for my piriformis: 
Look at those faces!

Last week was my JAM

I know. 
I haven’t been posting regularly. 
I’m sorry. 
Anyway…
Last week was great. I had my birthday, I worked, 
I traveled (shocker), 
got some great work offers to move me up 
in the industry, 
then I got to celebrate my birthday
(a week later). 
These things contributed to my great week. 
Therefore, 
they were my jam: 
APPLE PUMPKIN CANDLE:
This candle from Crystal smells SO good. 
It’s been lit 24/7 ’round these parts. 
It’ll prob be gone within a week. 

BRANDI CARLILE PANDORA:
I could listen to this Pandora station all day. And I kind of do… 
Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, Ray LaMontagne, 
The Wailin’ Jennys, etc. 
So good. So chill. 
OUR DOGS:
Watching Tang and Church run amok makes me smile. 
Every day. 


THIS DISH:
Lynn made me dinner in exchange for watching her baby last week while 
she and her hubs had a date night. A fair trade indeed.
 AND you should check out her recipes on her blog
She’s fab. 


SUNDAE/BANANA SPLIT:
After test-paddling kayaks and standup-paddleboards 
Friday night, with Tamara and Scott, 
we got Graeter’s Ice Cream. 
Oh yeah. 
I couldn’t finish mine… but I gave it my best shot. 
#allinmoderation
GARAGE BAR:
 Birthday celebration Saturday night at our fave downtown spot.
Outdoor seating, 15 friends, glow-in-the-dark Ping Pong, and fun lights. 
BUDS:
This is me, (a little D after a lot of Bourbon)with Sarah. 

LOUNGING:
Enjoying my Sunday with my new favorite book
and a reading partner…

BFF:
Amanda just moved back to Louisville! 
We haven’t lived in the same city since high school. 
And her preggo belly is adorable.

Catch up week: Animals

OK. I’m back in town for a hot second. 
So I’m going to let this week’s posts get you all caught up
on the goings-around in my world. 
Last week: 
All the animals in the house took cute pills or something. 
I couldn’t get enough of them. 
Emmy sleeping in the crook of my legs: 
All three cats just waiting for a shot at 
the moth who flew in the house. 
Moth, you are effed. 
Churchill crashing the workout, but 
helping my friend/client Nikki

Tango in the field down the road: 
Happy Tuesday. 
I’m back tomorrow with more…

Sunspots are my JAM

Sometimes you just need a quiet place to think… 
A warm, quiet place. 
Like the sunspot in your entryway, perhaps? 
T took this photo today…  
Anybody else like the sunspots in the floor? 
 Tang and I do!
This is from San Diego, a couple years ago… 
Sunspots are our JAM.
