Taking Care of a Little Business

Happy Saturday everyone!!

I thought I'd jump on here and take care of a little blogging business before our day really gets going.  Most days I post something deep and reflective.  Some days I don't feel that way and just want to shoot the breeze with you all. Today is one of those days.

Lucky you.

It is a big day at our house.  Boone turns one today.  Who is Boone you ask?  Well, he is our much loved, highly adored Beagle pup. {I know, I'll get pictures posted soon - I'll speak to that in just a minute}.   We bought this little nut nearly a year ago after many pleads and moans for a puppy.  He was just irresistible and ended up at our house the day after we first saw him.

At the time we reasoned that no child should ever grow up without a puppy. Now we think that growing up without a dog might be an OK idea - they'll survive.

Case in point:  So far Boone has celebrated his birthday by tearing through the family room {where he is not allowed - I have dog hair issues.  Like, I want to sit on my furniture and not be covered in dog hair when I get up!}, he has jumped up ON the couch, sailed over the half wall that divides our family room and kitchen, landed in said kitchen, and completed this birthday obstacle course by dragging his bed around the kitchen, attempting to tear it apart like any good hunting hound worth his salt would do to a rabbit.

He may not see two.

The other big news is that the Tooth Fairy visited Grace last night.  It is practically raining molars here at our house and that dang Tooth Fairy just keeps forgetting to stop by.  Well, she did last night - halleluiah!  It seems she finally got her tired act together and remembered to leave a little something under her pillow.  Unfortunately, this Tooth Fairy took with her the tiny treasure chest that holds the tooth.... who knew?  I guess she was supposed to know that she is to leave it,  but seeing as she is filling in for the Tooth Fairy that is currently camping with our oldest, she had to wing it.

She may not make it either.

On to the blogging business I was speaking of.  My hope for this blog is that it would be a place of encouragement, a thing of beauty in your day.  I also hope to weave in our family life and document our journey together.  I want to have some fun here, too.  I love fun!  I am all about the fun!  I'm hoping to do a monthly giveaway, just some fun products and neat things that I've come across and think you might enjoy.  In order to do that, I need people to leave comments so I can get a feel of how many people are actually checking in on a daily basis.  I have enabled this site to accept comments from anyone, whether you have a blog or not.

If you stop by and like what you read, could you please leave a comment?  You can even leave a comment if you don't like what you read, but I'll probably delete it.  :0)   You just click on 'comments' under each post.  You'll be able to see yours as well as read others.  It is a great way to develop an online community -  who knows?  You all may have a lot in common!

On another business note, I'm working on learning how to incorporate our own photos into my posts.  They make a post so much more interesting.  Doing so involves all kinds of technical what not and blah, blah, blah.  And I am a girl who runs from technical blah, blah, blah.

  Like Joseph ran from Potiphar's wife, that kind of running.  {I love Biblical humor, don't you?!}

Soooo....  I'm getting there.  Slowly.  Hopefully there will pictures next week when the Tooth Fairy comes home from camping- {he's a genius with that kind of stuff}.  And it's not the last week of school.  And finals are done.  And all the end-of-the-year- gifts have been given.  And the 200+ potluck dishes we have been assigned to bring have been consumed.  And all the sports are wrapped up.  And I can take a minute to just breathe.

Oh, I now have advertising on the sidebar of the blog.  Would you mind clicking on those if they interest you?  It would help generate some much needed income.  Don't feel pressured - only if it something you are interested in.  I have issues even asking this, but it is an honest appeal.

OK - I think that takes care of business on my end.

I'll leave you with a quote for today.  I thought it was fitting after all the rain we've had here recently.  It is so true and just lovely.
