We are all snowed in here. So, I had lots of time for picture taking. Here are two that I've uploaded.
The first is a monumental moment - our old dog, Freckles, after just about 9 1/2 months of having this intruder living with us, has decided the new puppy is okay and he actually laid down with her today - and I had my camera nearby. This just totally warmed my heart.
Last night I discovered that my craft lamp throws enough light to sort of create a daylight effect for taking pictures. My daughter was, once again, a willing subject. I am going to be using that light a lot more and, at least while taking pictures at home, I'll have no need to rush into saving for Speed Light for my camera.
My older beagle turned 12 today. It is getting hard to remember what it was like when he had energy and didn't sleep 23 1/2 hours out of every day. I did manage to get him motivated to do a trick or two.
Okay, so maybe only one trick on his birthday - begging, which is at the top of his list for things he likes to do.
This was his look when I told him he had to wear that birthday hat - not at all thrilled.
He then relented and agreed to the hat.
And this was his reward - his Kong stuffed with peanut butter and kibble. Here's hoping for a another good year ahead for my boy, Freckles....
I left a career as an insurance underwriter back in 1993 to stay at home with my kids and I have never once looked back. I've been fortunate to find a job that I can do from home and have done so for the last 16 years.
I am blessed with a great husband and two wonderful kids. Life doesn't get any better than that...well, throw in a beagle or two and it is a smidge better!
A love of our faith is #1 in our home and always will be.
