About Me

My photo
This is me. Not much to say. I think there is nothing better in the world than having a good friend that you can have an entire conversation with and never say a word. I love to read. Nicholas Sparks and James Patterson are two of my favorite authors. I am not afraid to choose a book by an unknown author if the title catches my eye. If my kitchen was not so small I would have people over all the time and cook for them. I love to try new meals and make new things. Life without a pet is not a full life in my opinion. I have one dog – Sasha. Could not imagine not having her there every day to shed all over my house and get in my way and be totally excited when I got home from work. She knows when to jump on my lap and just be there when I have a bad day. People need to give animals more credit and everyone should own one.

Christmas in Iowa

This past weekend I decorated for Christmas in IA. Just a few things missing so either next weekend I will get them finished or next year. Depends on how much free time I have...
The outside tree - with the orange and green from last year. Looks great in the picture and the next night the winter storm took it out. Chris has it back up and looking good again. Might have to post some pictures of it with the snow.
Inside tree - Silver and Blue - HUH??? I think I know of a truck and motorcycle that is the same colors. I got to decorate and Chris got to pick the colors.
Hopefully by next weekend there with be a wreath for the fireplace. Everything is purchased and looking at me. I probably should spend some time putting it all together. If it gets done I will post a picture.
Rockin' the speakers. If it does not move and I have the decorations I will decorate it.
While Chris and I decorated Sasha was of no help at all. I am sure we both could have used a nap also. Dogs...they really do have life perfect!!!

Christmas Pictures 2009 - Preview

We headed out to Lake Oakwood on Sunday to take our Christmas pictures. We got a ton of good ones even though Sasha wanted nothing to do with the camera, sitting still or listening. She just wanted to sniff around. Typical dog!!!

She is looking pretty crabby by this point in the day but at least she is somewhat looking in the direction of the camera.
Looking straight at the camera. My secret...stand behind the camera and ask her...
"Sasha wanna go for a ride with Grandpa in the Jeep"
Okay - so I know it is not a nice thing to do but it makes for a really good picture!
Sasha and her attitude!
Bet she learned that from...ME!!!
