I like this little weekly post. It encourages me to go back, and look at the last week again. Sometimes life is so busy I forget to stop and take a picture. Other times you, and my followers on instagram, wish I DIDN'T stop and take a picture. Even if they are simple, it's really nice to review what has already gone by.
Either way here it is. The past week, in all it's grainy glory.
Night time, family bike ride. Kids are all strapped in ready to go.
Helmets, check. Lantern, check.
Off we go!
When your on a budget and want a snack what do you do?
Me? I head to the kitchen and see what Betty Crocker can help me make.
This little sweetie is on her way to recovery. Slowly, but surely.
This photo was taken the day her drains were removed. She has also had her stitches out, and no longer needs to wear a shirt. She is sporting the craziest hair cut of all times. Still on limited activity until her follow up x-ray in another 2 1/2 weeks. She's getting there.
Home made, old timey, pop corn. In my house. Coconut oil, a little margarine, and pop corn. All. back in the day like, and stuff.
Try it. Your house will smell great. I also recommend adding kettle corn sprinkle, but do what you like.
The Dr Doggie flower arrangement that arrived on our door step also looks good on a bear. Who knew? Oh yea, me. Yup.
I thought the kids would just get a kick out of this. I was right, they did. However, I got to witness, none of the fun. But then again, neither did the sender. Oh well. It's not about me anyway.
This was the scene,
A Thanksgiving tradition for one of my great friends are "Ants on a log". We have had Thanksgiving together for 7 years. There have been quite a few jokes about these things. Like "who even eats them", but for some people tradition just has to be there. You just do it. We have also ended up with "ant mounds" from the "Oh, we forgot to make them" rush.
S really wanted a snack one night and went into the kitchen. It was random that S remembered we had celery because alone, it is not his favorite snack. You can imagine when he came into the living room with this, I had to laugh.
An early evening family walk around the lake. I really just loved the way the lights reflected off of the water. It was a very calming walk.
The vet that is caring for Scarlet is a mess. That is the best, and nicest way I can say what I'm thinking about our experience so far. They claim that 3:30 is the best time to bring her in. Trying to be a nice fiancee and dog mommy I pack up the kids, and dog. Then drive to the vet. Unpacked all of us and signed in at 3:35. At 4:05 we were still waiting. Seriously? That is when I snapped this shot.
