Pet paintings

My Brother and sister in law came to visit for a few days. She is kind-of alergic to dogs, I say kind-of because Angel didn't bother her but she didn't like her around. So to make up to her for not wanting to pet her, she offered to do a painting of her in water colors. (She is an artist.) In about ten minutes she captured her perfectly. Then she did my first two dogs who passed away...wonderful keepsakes all three! Then she did one of Rio, Shannon's dog. I will try to take a picture of them, I don't know if they will look right, a picture of a picture, but I'll try it.
Thank you Judy! You are the best with a brush that I have ever seen!

Right now I am babysitting. (Happpy 18th dating anniversary Jon and Shannon!) Poor little Rylee had mud butt and cried and cried. It broke my heart. I hate to think of her going through this again already! I finally gave her some Tylenol and now she is almost asleep. I am having a bowl of peppermint ice cream and a glass of Sherry, and listening to Blue Collar comedy tour! Love it.

Really organized my closets and cupboards last week. I wish they would stay that way. But alas I am much better at organizing than keeping organized.
Nothing else much happening. Chow!

Go Colts

I haven't watched a Vikings game in...well years...but I watched last night. Not a good omen as they lost. So I called a friend who is a big Colts fan to wish them luck. I said I'd watch...but now wondering if I'd be more help if I didn't?

Rylee came and spent the day with me, or part of the day I brought her home around 3:00. We had fun playing with her doll...change the baby, feed the baby, tickle the baby. Angel played too but she didn't really want too.

My brother and his wife are coming for a visit so I am trying to get ready. The thing is she only eats grass feed beef and for some reason all the easy meals I can think of are beef. Guess a trip to whole foods is in my future.

Nothing else much happening...

pieces and parts

Yesterday the lizzard fell out of the tree but it didn't look like it was going to come too-ever. So I was picturing the lawn crew running over it tossing lizzard parts allover my patio. But I needn't have worried last night after dinner the ferrel cats feed for several hours. Which in the circle of life is a good thing- they have been looking thin. As nature would have it, the biggest & strongest ate first.
I went to bed thinking ther would be parts left but nope gone every last bit.

I have been reading posts but not commenting much as I am only using the I-phone and it's hard to type.

Lounge Lizard

I took this picture a couple weeks ago. Check out what is hanging around in my tree. I have been watching to see if it wakes up and rights itself, or wakes up and falls out. Either way I hope it wakes up and crawls off to someone elses tree!

I also had a black petrified/frozen frog sitting on my step. When I went to broom him away from my step he poofed! Interesting critters in Florida.

Friday was my last every day babysitting. Now I will go to part time and whenever time. I felt a little sad like I shouldn't be feeling as happy as Shannon but I was. Okay I guess that makes me a bad GaGa.

Got a relaxing morning, read a whole book and did a put away and minor cleaning of house. It felt good. Now for a movie night complete with popcorn!

The Toilet Whisper

Over the holiday Erin told Jon P. that the whining and groaning in the pipes in the powder room were too much flow to the toilet. He ignored her at first but finally tried it and more noise! (Shannon had been putting up with that noise for about 7 years.) Then my John brought up that our toilet upstairs kept making a loud water filling noise every 30 minutes but the toilet didn't appear to be leaking but he was going to check it out. I said it sounded like a pump pushing water to the second floor. But Erin said check the flapper it's almost always the flapper.
So John checked it by shutting off the water supply and wal-la! The flapper was bad. He replaced it and no more weird noise no more wasted water.
Shannon then named Erin the toilet whisper.

Got a problem with your toilet? Call the Toilet Whisper...954-#*%-#$*% for fast service. (Rates to be determined.)

Thanks Erin!
