I've Fallen....

....and I can't get up!  Man!  I plum fell out of the land of blog for the past month.  This new critter of mine, Miss Katie, has been "making" me take her on at least two walks a day AND I am gearing up for the retail rush that is peeking it's head up rather swiftly.  Where has this year gone?  I seem to be asking that same question each year, but really, 2015 has slipped by like a sneaky snake in the grass.

The highlight of my month was to get to see Pastor Joel Osteen at AT and T park in San Francisco.  My sweet friend, Robin, had an extra ticket and she asked if I would like to go.  When she first told me she was going to see Joel, my eyes lit up and she remembered my reaction.  So when her other friend had to opt out, I was blessed with the invitation.  The evening was perfect and the stadium had over forty thousand people there!  It was packed!  I looked around at all of the people there and had to think about how the rapture will look with all of the Christians going to Heaven.  Chills ran up my arms at just the thought.  

I am looking forward to meeting a blog friend this coming weekend and will share more about that later on.  I'm not sure she will want everyone to know that she is away from her gorgeous home.  And since I tipped on that....I also have to scratch my noggin' when I read Facebook posts of people who share that they are here, there and everywhere...and not home...at. that. very. moment.  Geesh!  It would be a perfect opportunity for someone to come and rob them.  Maybe criminals aren't that smart..but then again, maybe they are.  

So HAPPY SEPTEMBER to everyone.  Time to pull out the fall decor!  I'm finding a lot of scales these days to sell and have kept a few for myself.  

And LORI, the sweet lady who left me a comment on my last post, I hope you had a beautiful birthday!  Thanks for introducing yourself via the comment section and your sweet message left a smile on my face.  :)

Portraits Of My Scotties, Duhgall and Katie

The other day the sun was shining in the kitchen windows and it made for a perfect back drop for taking some photos of my Scotties, Duhgall and Katie.

Duhgall is a confident guy and is not a bit shy when the lens of my camera is aiming in his direction.  He has always been the little poser.
And I am in love with him.

His beautiful neck, round black eyes and the soulful way he has about him.  If ever a dog could read your mood, know when you need a little nudge of love, it is our guy.  I often wonder just how much these little creatures really sense ... just how much they know that we don't even realize.

It has been three weeks since we adopted little Katie and she has made such wonderful progress in the short time she has been here in her new home.  She wakes up with her tail wagging away and loves to chase the "red" ball, just like Fiona did. (Makes me miss Fiona!)  She is quite the comic, however not so comfortable when having a camera aimed at her.  But we took our time, let her get acquainted with the black box with a single eye that stared straight at her.  With a little coaxing from me and some loving reassurance from her new brother, we were able to snap some sweet photos.

My beautiful furry children.  I love them so much!  Katie's hair is starting to grow back in.  I am waiting for her "skirt" to grow in - but it may never be as thick as Duhgall's.  Time will tell.  She is much smaller than Duhgall.  A wee petite lassie.  He doesn't mind at all having his new "sister" here.  It is quite sweet to watch him with her.  He even waits for us to catch up to him when we are out on walks.  So thoughtful and so very kind.  

Our little home is filled with a lot of love and laughter and we are amused with the Scottie antics that happen here.  It makes me happy.

Till next time...
Scottie aroooooos to our friends and
