From Laundry To Walker Texas Ranger…

Aye Y’all.

I don’t really have anything to say. I thought I’d pop in because it’s been a minute… Like a week or so… & I wanted to say Hey.

MyΒ  husband & I went camping for a few days earlier this week & although I took my laptop.. I never even opened it. But alas, I’m opening now!

SoΒ I’mma tell y’all some random nonsense from my day. — You’re welcome. πŸ˜€

I couldn’t find my pencil bag earlier. Y’all know the ones you used to get in school to hold all your pens, pencils, markers & such? They have the holes and you can snap it into a binder and you’re all good? — I have one of those. I keep my pens, sticky note pads, small notebooks, and things like that in there. I also keep my little thumb drive in it. So it’s vital to my success. — Anyhow, I found it……. under a pile of clean laundry I dumped into the recliner earlier. Yes, I took it out of the dryer & dropped it into the chair like a good little procrastinater. & we’re not going to talk about that other load of laundry that’s still hanging out in the dryer either. Nope… it is of no importance. Y’all go on ahead and put it out of your mind… I already have. — Laundry? What Laundry? πŸ˜€

I watched an episode of Bonanza tonight at Mombie & Papa’s. Then an episode of Walker Texas Ranger immediately following that. It made me smile. I remember watching those shows as a kid because my mom watched them. & not as a kid because I was a kid when they came out… I’m one of those dreadful millennials the world warns you all of…. No, they were definitely re-runs from when I was either not born yet or… aged 2 til 10. (Yes, I just googled Walker Texas Ranger’s run time. Don’t judge me. πŸ˜€ ) — Anyhow… it was nostalgic & makes me wanna binge some Walker. — The heart wants what the heart wants…. & it wants the eyes of a ranger upon me. — Except not in a creepy way…. that definitely sounds sorta creepy and stalker-like. — No, I mean in a walker texas ranger way. He’s no creepy stalker. He’s the one that will take out your creepy stalkers. — Ya know what? I’m just gonna stop now. This is getting away from me. I have no idea what I’m saying right now.

Also, I cleaned my shower today. Tho I’m sure none of you care… I did indeed do so. — Does that now give me a free pass for failing to fold and put away laundry? I feel like it does. I’m going with yes.

Anyhow. I’m gonna skip out of here & do a little writing. (Not this writing, work writing.) & then go climb in bed & crash with my favorite husband & my favorite pup. I only have one of each of those, just to clarify. In case any of you thought I was collecting husbands and puppies. Tho collecting puppies does have its merits. πŸ˜€

See y’all soon!

 

With Love,
Heather!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When The Food Goes Missing…

I don’t have the first interesting thing to write about. But I am attempting to make an effort to write every day & toss out at least one blog post a day. — So I am just going to tell you whatever comes to mind. — πŸ™‚

Okay.. so, something super random… Β  — My sweet, adorable, furry, cute-as-pie, black labrador… likes to snitch things off of plates & counter tops when one’s back is turned. — You’d think… with that cute-as-pie & as innocent as they come little face that she has…. she’d never do such a thing. — Well.. my friends, that is not the case. She is indeed a furry little food thief! πŸ˜€ — French fries, sandwiches, burgers…. & my husband’s little sausage biscuits he likes to have for breakfast… haha.. okay, that one is actually pretty funny. Looking like a little chipmunk with her cheeks all puffed out full of biscuit…. lol… if that doesn’t brighten one’s day I don’t know what could.. πŸ˜‰ Β — Anyhow… she’s adorable… but… this life of crime she’s living… shame, shame on her I say. πŸ˜€ — Seriously tho.. how are there people who don’t like dogs? — All that adorableness sure is hard to resist if you ask me. πŸ˜‰

Love!

Oh, how love knows no bounds. πŸ™‚

In the last 2 years, since we brought home our sweet Pepper (pictured adorably above πŸ™‚ ) I have done things I never would have thought I’d do in a million years.

After she ate a giant rag when she was about 5 months old, she got sick, threw it up …. & I did something that day that I never thought possible. — As any good dog would, she had decided that she would eat it again. So, without even thinking, I raced over, grabbed it, & proceeded to play tug-o-war (this really wasn’t meant to be a game, I was attempting to save her life, because of course, as any new doggy mommy would know, I just knew if she ate that thing up again she’d die for sure.. Lol) Β Anyhow, I wrestled the disgusting rag away from her & felt rather victorious in doing so….. right up until it dawned on me that she had just thrown it up. — Eww. — I loved her so much I never even considered the Eww factor until I was well passed the point of no return. — & when she looked up at me with her tiny little face, all happy & content, I didn’t even care how disgusting it was. — Love. It’s a funny thing.

Once, while on a walk, I realized we stumbled upon a wasp nest in a field. As they swarmed all around her, I thought, Oh my! I have to get her out of here. She, of course, was oblivious to them & I, of course, was about to panic. — When it was all said & done, & we were clear of them…. it was I, not her, that ended up with an ice pack & the Benadryl. Lol, that’s right…. I got stung & she walked away without a care in the world. — But I was okay with that. — I despise insects that sting. I’m an adult & I still run away from them, even in public, Lol I’m not making that up. — But not that day. For her, I lingered around with a bunch of sadistic little stingers long enough to get us both away. — Love, It’s a funny thing.

I have countless stories that I could share. So many things like the ones I just talked about. Moments where I did things for her or made decisions because of her that I never thought I would. All because I love her.

She is part of our lives, our family, and I can tell you that when the day comes that she is no longer with us… I will be incredibly heartbroken.

There really is something special about dogs! πŸ™‚
How could one not love them?

Dog Adventures

I almost lost an arm today. Sort of.. at least it felt like that’s what was about to happen.

I took my lovely 90lb Labrador Retriever, Pepper, for a walk & she nearly ripped my arm off in pursuit of playtime with a neighbor’s very tiny dog. (Playtime with this particular doggy friend means playing “tag, you’re it!” They chase each other around, try to catch each other, run away, and then do it all over again. (Which is actually quite entertaining sometimes considering one is a giant & the other is barely the size of a rabbit.) — Only it’s not so much fun when the giant is blatantly ignoring you & dragging you around with her, lol.

I love my dog. She’s the closest thing we have to children at this point in our lives. She drives me absolutely crazy sometimes… but she’s such a little darling. (Okay, so I may be a wee bit in denial… she’s spoiled rotten & she knows it. Lol… but she’s still our little sweetheart. — If you don’t have a dog… you should consider it. — They’re amazing! πŸ™‚ –(Lol, Please disregard my first sentence if you feel it conflicts with my last statement, Haha! πŸ™‚

Oh, the adventures of a dog owner! πŸ™‚

Heather!
