Some Buddy That I Used To Know.

Three things for Friday: First of all, I’m a co-author in my second of three books (so far). I’m really proud of this one. I wrote it as a bit of a tribute to my mom for Mother’s Day but I honestly didn’t imagine it would get picked for the book ....more

Losing My Cape.

I think by now you know me – always doing things my own way and at my own pace. Often, out of order. First I became a wife, pretty fast in fact! ...more

We Rescued Each Other.

We have become proud rescue pet owners. For the full story, you can read it HERE. My husband, Cassidy, had been casually (or not casually) perusing photos of dogs in need of rescue and he fell in love with a young Husky/Basenji mix puppy who had been given a rough start to her life ....more

How To Keep Your Cat Happy & Healthy.

I think you all know by now that I was very inexperienced with cats until last year. Ever a dog person, no one was more surprised than I was when our magical garden “fairies” (according to our then four-year-old) brought two lost kittens into our garden last June. They were very young and very homeless, and suddenly ours ....more

Things That Make You Go Hmm..

What did this week throw at me? A stomach virus (Scarlet), a cold so bad he missed three days of school (Des), and a partridge in a pear tree (Athena). Actually, it was three porcupine quills that I removed from her face, but I liked partridge in a pear tree better ....more
