Jeepers, Creepers, WOW do we have PEEPERS!

No, quit thinking like that. Not window peepers, jeez you guys! Froggy-like peepers. They love the rain most of all, but almost every night—rain or not—they are peeping away in our back yard. A chorus of silly, tiny frogs! We were sitting out a few nights ago and just enjoying the cool evening after dinner and we noticed Sailor’s odd behavior. Now those of you that have met Sailor, know that he is a dog that likes to stick pretty close to you so he can be petted and coddled to the max. Not so this night. We observed him halfway down the yard, just sitting. The minute the peepers started their song he would cock his head from side to side, just listening. Probably thinking to himself “what the heck is that noise?”. He was just too cute cocking and tilting his head to and fro. The minute the peepers stopped, so did he. I wish I could share a photo with you, but some things you just have to keep in your head. This was one of those times.

Millenia Redecorates

I never know what the morning is going to hold for me. The dogs or the cats somehow manage to think up something to make my early waking hours more challenging. This morning it was Millenia’s turn. At least we think it was Millenia. See photo attached and make your own determination! I came downstairs to find that someone had gotten into the trash in the laundry room. We’ve been painting (so far the living room this weekend) and I had a small amount of paint in a plastic glass that I was using to touch things up with. It was in the trash. This a.m. it was out of the trash, spilled all over the laundry room floor. Tell-tale painted footsteps led from the laundry into the kitchen, onto the throw rugs. Great. Another fun start to my day. Who do you think did it? (P.S. Millenia is wearing “Ivy Lane” by Benjamin Moore Paint)

Bear Visit!

If it’s dark, it must be late and she forgot to feed us!

It’s a dark, dreary afternoon here in NJ. It rained this morning and looks like it’s going to start again soon. It is only 1:30 p.m. but looks more like 8:30 p.m. I love it but the dogs are confused. They think I forgot to feed them. They’ve been dogging my footsteps for about an hour now, waiting and hoping to be fed. Coming from Colorado where it’s sunny 85% of the time they don’t know what a really cloudy day is like. They still have two more hours to wait. I hope they get used to cloudy days soon.

Welcome to my Blog!

Hello and welcome! I’ve created this blog site for friends and family, but also for myself. Since our recent move to northern New Jersey, our lives have been opened to many new experiences and I’ve felt the need to write them down. I am not good at keeping diaries, but somehow this seems different than pulling out a little book and scribbling in it. So, I’ll do my “scribbling” with a computer keyboard instead. I hope that you will enjoy reading what I write here and that you will visit often! Please, please feel free to leave comments! I’d love to know that you’ve enjoyed reading a certain article! To leave a comment, just click on “Comments” at the end of each article. If you’re new to this site and wish to read the blog entries in chronological order, click here.

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved back to my 'home' state and I am living in NoCo (Northern Colorado).This blog will be about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
