Sushi Night

Good morning,

Every Thursday is half-price sushi night at our favorite sushi restaurant.

It was important enough to pull Catherine out of her office and away from doing tax returns to go there with us last week. 

Oh, this is so good!

Gold Fishies!

Good morning,

Spring is here and our gold fish are becoming more active again.  Although we have a de-icer in the pond throughout the winter, the fish seem very happy when the water is warmer.
Our little self-sustaining gold fish pond is great entertainment for our pups.  No, the dogs don't get in the pond since they've gotten older, but they do love to stand and watch the fish.

Happy Spring!

Wendy in the Window

Good morning,

I went out on the front porch to take pictures in the sun of an item for our shop.  On the other side of the window was Wendy on Guard.  Wendy is keeping an eye on the neighborhood to be sure no one gets near the house who shouldn't be near the house.
So, this is how Wendy looks from the other side of the french doors from the image that is in my blog header.

Wendy takes her job very, very seriously.

Salmon and Salad Dinner

Good morning,

We are trying so very hard to eat healthy - at least most nights of the week.

Simple is always best.  This is salmon my honey prepared that we served with...
...a very simple crunchy salad.  The only salad dressing was cottage cheese which turned out to be fabulous.

It was delicious.  :)

We are always looking for ideas.  What is your favorite healthy meal?

All Wound Up

Good morning,

At the end of the day we wind up the pups and put them on the bed until morning.  ;)

Well, actually, we convince them they should gather in the center toward the foot of the bed so we can get in the bed, too. 

What a very sweet security system.

Lab School for our Kids!

Good morning,

So, we were driving to the post office to drop off some packages when I noticed the sticker to the left of the license plate on the car in front of us.
Here's a closer look.  We got so excited!  Xavier University has a school for our Labs!

I'll have to call and get them signed up!

My Side of the Bed

Good morning,

When I was ready to get into bed last night I discovered my space was occupied.  I got a kick out of how carefully they had spaced themselves.

I convinced them to move into the middle so there was space for me. 

We feel very certain that there will not be any intruders in our home in the middle of the night.  Well, none that will survive.

Love those kids.
