Times they are a changin....

Our missed buddy Clod....we will always love him.

Our new Black Lab Riley
Hunter and Riley Boy!

I am sure by now many wondered where I may have gone since Christmas(thank-you to those who emailed me). If no one ever ventures this way or plain gave up on me I can't say I blame ya lol! We have had some changes in this household. First off I have now JUST ventured into the 21st century.....as of yesterday I waved goodbye and good riddance to dial-up. It had gotten soooo bad I couldn't visit anyone...it took sooo much time to get to just one blog and than more time to see pictures (which half the time came up with big x's anyway). Such frustration! Living out in the boondocks we have now just gotten access to Quest. Secondly we had our wonderful Airdale dog Clod of 12 years pass away in Jan. and we have been very upset over that. Thirdly we recently added two new members to our family. A bit chaotic but a lot of fun! We adopted a new dog (Riley) and a new kitten (Calvin) from the Humane Society. Pictures of all above. Fourthly I am the proud owner of a new Canon Rebel Xti digi which I have been playing around with. So much more fun doing my layouts with the pretty new pictures. I have left it on Automatic....havn't ventured to any other dials as of yet. I have MUCH to learn. We still have a lot of snow here and we have stayed home most of the time. I have so much to catch up on with soooo many of you. Hope all is well. I will leave you with some pictures of my newly painted wall shelf. I needed something new and cheery so I repainted it. I am also repainting the walls in there. The winter has been long and tedious here and my good ole paintbrush is a little much needed therapy. Cabin fever is putting it mildly......Loves, cherry

Cherry! It is so nice to see you! Hey, sometimes life just is life, ya know? I am so sorry about the loss of your beloved dog, and congratulate you at the sametime on the additions to your family! Can't believe you were trying to blog with dial up - no wonder you threw up your hands! Good to see you again! Love, Esther

Welcome back, sweetie pie! Sure have missed you and I am SO SAD to hear about the loss of your sweet baby, Clod. I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. Your new babies are sweet and how wonderful of you to adopt them. They look very content.

Your shelf and bench are fabulous - as always, your home is full of sweet things. I like it all.

Isn't have a fast internet the best? I cannot imagine not having it. Dial up is old news. High speed is awesome.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
