Thought I should update on the puppy status

My baby grew really quickly! She is quite a girl so very sure of herself. She seems to explode with energy so I decided to register her name as Jo'Mel Spontaneous Combustion but around the house she is Ziva. If you watch NCIS you will know the character who reminds me a lot of my girl.

She is a terrible digger so I trained her to dig in a pot half full of dirt. She thinks this is some kind of sport lol.

She is quite a big girl now and stands just a little taller than her mom, Zoe. Don't think that because she is bigger that Zoe lets her get away with anything. Zoe still rules the house!

Daddy J just kinda sits back and lets things happen although it is not unusual for him and Ziva to have a round of rough housing.

We also have a new house guest. My roommate (for now) Diana just bought a new puppy. With 4 dogs and 1 very big cat running around, the house is always full of energy.

Of course we cannot forget the "Breakfast Gang". My girls feed me and the babies lots of yummy eggs :)

As you can see I am keeping myself rather busy lately and have actually begun a new blog. I have taken up the hobby of pottery and have challenged myself to make a piece a day for a full year. Feel free to stop by and check it out Kim

Our new baby

My sweet little papillon girl, Zoe had her first pup. She is a singleton and was very large! It seems that single pups get all the nutrition that a full litter would normally get and tend to get very large. The vet and techs all referred to her as the "giant" baby. She is 11 days old today and is pretty much an eating machine. Hopefully she will open her eyes soon and get a little personality. Zoe is an excellent mom :)


I purchased 6 chicks from TSC. They seem to be quite entertaining for the house pets. These pictures are weeks old already and the chicks are now feathered out. Seems I need to add some more recent pictures.

I'm Back!

Major computer problems caused me to wait to post for awhile until I was able to get a new one. Just learning how to use it and what it can do but so far love it.

I told you I would let you know if I got some chickens...well I did. There are 6 little future food makers in a makeshift brooder in my family room. As soon as I get a chance, I will post pictures.

Tomatoes & chickens

Getting ready for the summer bounty of tomatoes! First few have popped up in the seedling set up.

Now I am seriously looking at getting a couple of hens for some fresh eggs. Trying to make up my mind but I REALLY want a couple. I have been thinking it over since 2009 and may take the plunge this year. I will keep you updated if I actually go for it!

Time to get going again

I decided to get my little blog going again so here is my first post of where did the time go?

Today I put out a couple dozen containers of winter sown vegetables for the springs garden. Good to be thinking about spring again. This winter seems to be dragging on with consistent low temperatures.

Not really much gardening news to report for awhile but having fun sorting through seeds, doing some seed swaps and dreaming with the catalogs.
