A spot for me to ramble about my smooshie faced dogs, paper crafting, knitting and a little cooking...

Welcome home Bennett

Last night we brought Bennett home. We had read that he and Fitz should meet on neutral ground, so we went for a walk in the rain to introduce them last night. At first Bennett didn't really like Fitz, he got all growly, but they have are becoming fast friends I think. Bennett is really whiny, more so than Fitz was, but he chews a LOT less than Fitz did. This is nice! They are having fun playing, we are having to keep a hold on Fitz though, he is a little too big and brutish for Bennett right now.

Supervised (aka Fitz can't actually get to Bennett) playtime

Lets chew on each other...


Remodeling at the lake

We have been at the lake house for the last week and a half remodeling. I say we, but really Dad, Ken, and Chris have been remodeling. I have been cooking and providing moral support! =) We are adding on an entryway and a covered porch, taking the roof off, extending the upstairs walls to a full 8 feet, then putting a new roof on. The former loft upstairs will turn into 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry room. A big undertaking!

The garage side of the house where the new covered porch will be.

The lake side of the house.

Where the new entry addition will be.

We are home only for a couple days, then back to the lake to get the roof torn off and replaced quickly so the house is enclosed before icky weather sets in. (well, icky-er anyway...)

Introducing Bennett

Bennett is our new shih-tzu puppy. He is 6 1/2 weeks old in this photo. He just ate, as can be seen by the food still on his face =) He will be coming home to us around the 25th of August. Such a cutie!

Hello blogging world!

Well, I have taken the plunge and joined the blog world. I have no idea how much I might use this, but thought I might as well try. It just might be interesting to someone!


About Me

I live with my wonderful husband of 12 years Chris, Fitz the almost 1 year old pug, and the newest member of our family Bennett the 8 week old Shih-tzu. We have a second home on a small lake where I grew up, we watch altogether too much TV, and spend WAY too much time online. I have just started knitting, have been papercrafting for many years, and enjoy cooking.
