Busy Mommy or Slacker Blogger…

However you want to look at it!!

ha ha

Busy or not…

just keep smiling…

just keep smiling!   =)

so I didn’t manage to link with Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt…  = (

but I think I can still link with Sarah’s 365?!!   better late than never? =)

well… anyway…

here is a tiny peek into last week anyway…

Sunday     134/365

Meet Mr. Bones

Sammy and I made Mr. Bones last week…

He painted him with  glow in the dark paint on Sunday

I am hoping to teach Sammy the skeleton this week

my kind of Fun Science!

Monday  135/365


I love it when roses open up…

so delicate … soft… lovely!

nothing like me…

ha ha ha

Tuesday 136/365

Meet Mr. Hairy Feet

he needs groomin man

one problem

he bit the groomer last time he went!

OH MERLIN!

in his defense she said she turned the hair dryer on right behind his head

when he wasn’t expecting it…

Merlin is afraid of the dryer… and water …

its not a fun day for him…

The Groomers know all this about him….

she said it was her fault… and he didn’t break skin…

NOW

I am looking for a groomer who is more gentle…

one who is not in such a hurry that she forgets his fears…

its for the groomers safety

Well…I  can’t have a biting dog!!  yikes!

Anyway…

Merlin’s paws double in size a few weeks after he is groomed…

its crazy how hairy King Charles Cavalier/Cocker Spaniel dog feet are!

Really his whole body doubles in size after 3-4 weeks…   =)

its funny really…

if I manage to find a new groomer and get him a hair cut this week

I will post a pic just like this one next week…

and he will look like a beagle not a fuzzy polar bear!! 😉

if I manage to find a new groomer and get him a hair cut this week

people in the neighborhood keep callin my poor hound FAT!

he’s not “fat”…

a little chubby from winter maybe?…

He’s Hairy!!  which makes him appear fat!

hm …

wish I had that excuse…

moving on…

Bread ~ gluten free bread

GF loaves are NOT cheap… and they are TINY!!

and it is so hard to find time to bake my own bread every week…

especially since we have been hand washing all our dishes …

never mind that… somethings are better left alone…

I LOVE bread.    I can’t live without bread.

I have made a few gluten free bread mixes…

So far.. .this one is my fav!!

I love turning it into Cinnamon Bread!!  yum!

for $4.79 I get two small loaves…

better than one store bought loaf for $5.99 or $6.99!!

and… this mix is EASY to make …

no kneading or bread machine required!

I hope to get into a more regular blog pattern again…

and share some of the gluten free foods I have stumbled upon…

made, created, modified to fit my tastes…

who knows maybe someone out there will benefit, right?  =)

Bueler… tap tap… Bueler…

Thursday  138/365

Thursday we had some cat drama…

or Cat adventures?

it is a story for another day this week..

it really deserves its own post!!  =)

I know I know…

I haven’t blogged twice in one week for MONTHS!

will I really post it this week??  =)

*sigh*  I am just going with the flow of my seemingly busy life… including but not limited to … motherhood/home school teacher for one/planning next years curriculum/housewife/soccermom-wife/end of the school year stuff for the other/church stuff…etc. etc…blah blah… hard to find the blog time… never mind I seem to be tired all the time… I have got to shake the tiredness!!

anyway… I have high hopes to blog again this week…

in case you are interested…

about our funny-odd-cat- mystery cat-mole adventure…

just sayin… you might want to check back in say… Thurs or Friday??  =)

speaking of Friday  139/365

Trader Joes Gluten Free Brownies… plus candy melts =  BRownie pops!

I made brownie pops for the School Auction/Carnival fundraiser

my thought with brownie pops is this:

it eliminates the messy frosting step

brownies are sticky enough to form balls with out the mess… ha!

and it cuts down on the sugar… right??!!

I just realized that …  bonus!

unless of course brownies have more sugar than cake…

then you can throw my theory out the window!

sadly I didn’t get photos of the final product…

and I didn’t get to taste any of them either!

aren’t you glad I shared… ha ha ha…

Anyway…  I AM making them again this week

for Abby’s Girl Scout Project (another fun blog post coming soon)

I have made cake pops 5-6 times in the last couple months…

I am feelin like a cake pop pro now!!  ha ha…

so more on the Brownie pop madness next week …

Saturday 140/365

The Last Soccer game of Spring Season …

the girls fought hard against a strong team…

we didn’t win (but let’s not talk about that ok!!)

They are becoming fabulous little soccer players…

and young ladies…YIKES!

many of these girls started with they were little little girls!

my man has been the head coach for a full year now… =)

Anywho….   As one of the soccer coaches wives…

the one thing I am never sure of

is what to do for the girls at the end of the season…

I mean trophies are nice…

but I don’t want a house full of trophies at this age…

do the other mom’s?  =)

and ribbons… well… do the girls care anyway?

All Abby’s gymnastics ribbons are somewhere DEEP in her room…

not displayed or used for anything really…

In the past we have done trophies, certificates, small balls they all signed…

we are running out of options…

so Saturday (the day of the game) ha ha

I suggested hubby give them each a Yellow Rose …

I think they liked them… smiles all around!  =)

did you notice them in the soccer pic??  he he he

Here is a close up of Abby’s rose…

yellow flowers are so cheery… like the sun!  =)

Speaking of Sun…

I need to get my FAT hound out and run him…

while the sun is shining …

gray clouds are threatening our blue sky!!  =)

and then I hope to come around and visit y’all…

I miss y’all… my friends in the land of blog!

Abby and I have a little sewing to do this afternoon…

but I will be around by night fall!  =)

Blessings~

Just another busy housewife/mommy Seizing Her days… lol!

or not…  =)

Just Jenn

and just because

My little girl was taking nature pics for a project this week

and this is one of her nature pics…

shadows count… it is a product of natural elements??  =)  right?

She had a fever a couple days this week…

sadly she missed a really cool field trip to Seattle…

bummer… anyway…

just a fever and a cough… I will take it!!

better than… oh… never mind!

we are just glad she was only home sick 2 days…

the kid LOVES school… **beam**

I should be cleaning…

or walking my fat dog…

so why am I still here??   =)

g’bye… (wave)  bye now… (wave)  bye… (wave) … g’bye…

    I just wanna snuggle those doggie feet! I can’t live without bread either. Ever. You’re not a slacker blogger. You’re just living!

    I am always afraid that my puppy might bite the groomers too or the other doggies. She loves people…not doggies. Ugh I hate that about her. Your puppy is so cute. Sorry he gets so upset at the groomers.
    Love the roses in the post this week. So gorgeous. Mr. Bones is pretty cool too. Sorry she had to miss a field trip. My kids love field trips.

    Those furry feet are too sweet!
