We can’t feed it to Topaz because it has rosemary in it, but Onyx will enjoy it!

Sunday’s Ramblings

I’m over yesterday’s hubby rant and all is well again in our humble abode. Actually he’s at work and I’m enjoying some quiet time while the zoo is napping. It’s funny, they are literally laying all over the house. Onyx (Missy) is in the dining room…her and I spent some intimate time cutting the mats off her underarea earlier so she’s a bit miffed with me…Topaz (Puppa) is in the hallway sprawled out, Razzle (Yidda) is in the kitchen on the floor, Malcolm (Mooshy) is in the kitchen on the stove…he always lays there, it’s warm and he likes to be up high…Alex (Fana) is in the laundry room on the rug and Beans is under the bed in her hiding spot.

And me? Well I’m sitting here in my purpley office in my jammies searching the net for scrappy freebies. Oh, and I’m printing invites for my sister’s wedding. We kind of had a girls’ day yesterday (just my sisters and me) and went shopping, to Thai for dinner…and I had this new YUMMY peanut sauce dish with broccoli, chicken and cabbage – YUM!…and then we came back here and searched the net a little for favor ideas and then tweaked my sister’s wedding invites and started printing them a bit. It was a good time!

Today’s layout is another of my nephew. I feel like I am always making one with my other nephew and niece and not as many of my older nephew. I have tons of pictures of him growing up but they’re all on floppy disks and this pc doesn’t have a floppy drive. I need to put them onto CD’s so I can use them!

No template this time, and I made the Elijah picture thingie myself thanks to Pamela from Digitreats and her tutorial!

Everytime I pull my camera out Elijah is posing or setting up some kind of scenario for me to take a picture of or video. Here’s a picture of him from a few Thanksgivings ago where he wanted it to look like he was chasing or trying to kill the turkey for dinner.

Well the husband is on his way home and I have to repackage 40lbs of chicken backs to be refrozen. Fun, yucky stuff! lol

I may be back later with another layout later. There’s a picture of my niece that would go perfectly with the Digitreats “skip” set…

Houston…we have lift off!

I am writing this day down as a success!!

Topaz ate his breakfast AND ate his dinner!! The raw is a success! I am so happy. The lady who runs the Pet Beastro brought me in some chicken necks to try with Topaz…and he ate it right away. So either he was hungry, or he’s into it now! LOL Onyx, of course, ate hers like a pro.

Also, we had an excellent adoption at the shelter today. 15 homeless animals were adopted out into their new forever homes. We were SO busy today at the shelter!!! I’m really glad to see so many people who want to open their homes and hearts and welcome a new pet into their family. It’s awesome to watch people come in and meet their new best friends. It definitely makes me feel great to be a part of it all.

I got all of our Christmas decorations out this week. Well Todd got them from the garage for us. I went through and picked out the few things we will be putting out this year. See, my mother decorates every inch of her house…and I mean every inch. And don’t think it’s tacky because it’s really spectacular. She uses lights and a lot of vintage Christmas items, it’s just really cool. I wish I had that much stuff to decorate with, and could do it as nice as my mother does. But I’m always left with this feeling like it’s just not enough. My sisters say the same thing. It’s a curse really. lol

Anyway…I am going to put up the few things I picked out of our boxes to decorate with. We have not had a proper tree since getting topaz and now that we have 4 cats here, I am so afraid that they will climb into our tree and/or knock it down. And I don’t want to ruin all of our nice ornaments. Maybe next year we’ll get a tree and I’ll decorate with plastic bulbs. We’ll see.

Gotta go…have stuffs to do!!


Please take the container of turkey necks out of the fridge

Well the title says it all.

Funny how this is going…the little lab girl is loving the raw…loved the bones. Knew to chew them, what was I worried about?? And the Topaz…still having a hard time.

I’m worried about the seizure/blood sugar thing since he’s not eating much. We still have a few kibble samples that I’ve been giving him because I am nervous about the amount of food he’s eating. The last thing I want is for him to have another seizure.

I still feel really clumsy and I’m worried about the raw food all over the kitchen.

I need to get into a routine. I’m working on it.

So far though, not that bad. Tripe is the nastiest thing on earth…that’s all I have to say.

Till next time…H
