Homemade Honey Oatmeal Bread

Nothing like the scent of homemade/baked bread to transform "house" into "home"! Are you hungry yet?

Muddy Feet but Happy Tails!-DOT's Post

As we finally had a bit of sun after then longer then a week of rain, the pups and I decided to make the most of it with a hike this morning.

Autumn was dressed in some of her finest array...

We decided to take a different route rather then sticking with the bike trail. Sometimes the road(path, trail) less traveled really has the best scenery...

To the left of the trail, you actually look down upon a part of Sandycreek back water which is down over a cliff...

it appears the lilies are done for the season...
but look a little you see what I see?
A snapping turtle caught sight of me as I was clicking the picture, but if you click on the picture, I bet you can make him out.
Then to our right...
a gentle water fall...

Next we came upon a sandy cove along the Sandy Creek.

Tails wagging the whole time!

What a lovely camp site!

Sampson checking out the fire ring and Dew the seating!

They really didn't avoid most of the mud holes, but may have thought this one was too deep for them.

This was really pretty, click on the picture to get the full effect.
The mushrooms were really out since all the rain and gloom. But it is still quite pretty don't you think?

Heading back but this is what it is all about, lolling tongues and wagging tails, you know you did good!

Happy DOT's all!

Thank you!

I wanted to just say thank you to all my blogland and facebook friends and family who have posted so many great comments, wishes, and supportive emails. This is one of the great things I love about the online "community"!

I am really enjoying the time and want to make the most of it, and yes of course will post maybe a little more frequently then I have previously, maybe with all the pictures of things getting done!

Thanks again!

Officially-Laid Off

You know how you always say, when I have time to get to that...well now I do. Have time to get to that. I am making a list for myself of things that I want, (insert: need or have wanted) to get done. And not just housework. Things like:

~Getting into a regular exercise routine
~actually completing some knitting projects
~working with Sampson on his confidence level
~(I know this one is early) making up Christmas Cards
~and of course right up there is getting this house organized again.

My oldest has also told me that he has decided to get a place with a friend and he will be also moving out this upcoming week. He is pretty excited about it. I have a little glimmer of excitement about the possibility of seeing err I mean using my sewing machine again! And there are three projects there that I have been wanting to do also.

My boss says not to get used it, this is only a temporary situation and when things pick up wants me back at my job.

One day at a time, one day at a time...

How Funny...

At least I still have my sense of humor...such as it is!
