Good Week

ttot, gratitude blog

  1. A lollipop from my daughter she bought from her allowance debit card. It is her first purchase and she thought of me.
  2. My Fitbit and challenges I am in with my Fitbit friends encourage me to walk 10,000+ steps a day.
  3. The nice weather allows me to enjoy some time outside on my lunch break.
  4. My walking partner Velvet who is a dear to be with. She does not bark to other dogs and their people.
  5. Beautiful scenes like this birdhouses to be enjoyed while walking.
  6. My first ceramic plate in years I painted. What a stress reliever to paint this.
  7. Another painting, my only Denver Broncos cup.
  8. Daughter's love of painting gives us more reason to spend time together. Look at this box she painted.
  9. The home recipe to bathe poor Velvet who got sprayed by a skunk.
  10. Not pictured here is my son who got all A's but one B this summer semester in 12th grade.
This end of the week has been good. Today, perhaps, we'll even go to the mountains and take a hike.

    1. I've own dogs since I can remember and this is the first skunk spray. It was a big work getting the fouls smell out of Velvet.
      Well, my poodle, barks a lot too. Maybe it's a small dog kinda thing. They have to show the big dogs they are superior.

  6. You and your daughter are both very artistic! I think it's terribly sweet (no pun intended) that she bought you a lollipop as her first debit purchase. And good for your son to get those grades, especially in the summer!

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Sweet Times

Say hello to our new dog, Bando. He is an 8-week old boxer mix dog. We estimate he will grow and weigh up to 70 pounds. As my family got over the untimely death of our miniature poodle, Snowball, we all welcome this new baby, Bando, into the house. Josiah loves dogs and our dogs love him. They are all are very sweet.  We can't have too much sweetness in the house. So grandma got some cupcakes for them to decorate. Josiah decided to decorate his face instead though. It was a mix of cool nights and warm to hot days. It's nice to go out and be around the water, even man-made dams. We took a hike this morning. I am still growing plants, even indoors. Here is today's picture of my little aquaponics. Fish in the bottom, plants on top. I like these sprouts on my salad. I lost my father a few years ago. He died in the hospital after a few days stay. His passing, however painful to us, was a relief for him. I am thankful his suffering ended. I feel grateful for a good week. Happy

Week of Painting

I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
