Four Legged Adoption: Part I, Scout

Both of our pets, Scout the dog and Pip the cat, were adopted and because they are our fur-children, it would not be right of me to withhold the tails (har har… tales, get it!?) of how they came into our life. Scout was found via where foster “parents” can advertise the puppies available. Fortunately, her’s is not a sad story like so many stories about abandoned dogs… Scout was the result of “unintentional breeding,” if you will. Her mother is a basset hound and her father a border collie who her foster mom told me “they had seen around the neighborhood.” Great… one of them. Continue reading

Dear Single Friends, I Love You

First, thanks to Mama Kat for providing this incredible inspiration: she emails blog prompts weekly and encourages us to share our posts. Talk about great motivation to write!

That… did not happen. Continue reading

Dear Mr. Barista

As mentioned in my “Blog Goals” I am planning on using blog prompts as often as I need to in order to get my creative juices flowing (whoever came up with that phrase must have had some major body-fluid issues… vom). This blog is my first official foray into writing with the hopes of discovering my “writing voice” for potential professional use (grant writing, copy writing, journalism… who knows), but most definitely for personal blogging use. Therefore, blog prompts (I am hoping, at least) will provide an uninhibited platform from which I can take a flying leap… or at very least, a really big step. Continue reading

Would You Like to See My Rock Collection?

Recently I was pawing through the coat closet when I came upon a bag of rocks in a medical bag (you know the one with the skull and cross-bones on it… lest these rocks be toxic waste). I hadn’t pulled them out in a while, because we rarely have company who would have any interest, but it occurred to me that I have started a small rock collection. Continue reading
