And It's October......

Wow - it has been like FOREVER since I've written a post!!

Lots has happened though.....

We adopted a new dog from the Antietam Humane Society.  This shelter has a wonderful adoption program and the staff is so knowledgeable with the animals.  Very pleasant experience.

An owner surrender due to "no longer being able to care for him", he's been a wonderful addition:

We call him Dexter.  He's a 2-1/2 year old beagle and yes he does have the hound bark!!

Another Paint Nite (my new obssession) and hubby joined me this time (as well as Suzy, CC, Polt and Mama Polt)!

CC and I are back at Weight Watchers!!! (though I've been sick for over a week, so haven't had a first weigh-in yet and due to illness haven't eaten right yet).

And of course, hubby and I went to the beach:

Wish I could wake up at the beach everyday!

V A C A T I O!

Enjoy the rest of the summer!

My vacation is over!  That's always sad but it also is always good to get back home.

I was in Ocean City, MD with my one sister, her two daughters and her two grandsons.  We went last year and had a great time, so we went back this year.  Needless to say, my eating habits weren't good; oh the intention was there but they didn't play out.  So I'm back to square one; still doing simply filling.  I had a doctor's appointment prior to leaving for the beach and he suggested I enjoy myself and get back on track when I return.  So that's the plan!  He also upped my thyroid meds a teeny bit to move my metabolism along.

But anyway, I'm back and back on track and though it looks like I'm starting over - I'm not defeated yet!

So I see another month has gotten away from me!  I really don't want to give up blogging; but life often takes over!!

I did ANOTHER Paint Nite and had tons of fun; I'm also signed up for another in August and have lots of friends coming along for that one.  This is the painting I did this time:

My dogs were a little bottom heavy; but I thought it turned out great!  This painting was very close to me...I see Toby & Lucy looking up in the sky at Keyser (represented by that bone shaped cloud).  I had signed up for this painting before losing Keyser (or even aware that I was) and now it seems like it was a glance into the future.

I do LOVE the Paint Nites though - there's one going on this afternoon with some spots left; I'd love to go but I'm getting ready for:

V A C A T I O N!!!!!

This is the second (hopefully annual) trip to Ocean City, MD with my sister, nieces and great-nephews!  Sure to be fun and entertaining; oh and I can taste those hard shell crabs already!!

An Update!

This past week a co-worker and I went to Paint Nite.  If you've never heard of this or have been afraid to attend one - you really need to check them out!  They are a lot of fun and you need positively no artistic ability!  Trust me art is not my talent but even my painting came out good:
Mine doesn't look like the artist's nor anyone else's in the room - but it looks like something!  I'm doing another in July and am really looking forward to it.
CC and I went yard selling and wine testing yesterday.  The one winery was having a festival in honor of their dog Rusty's birthday!  There was an artist there doing caricature drawings.  I showed him this photo on my phone:
And asked him to do just Keyser.   I LOVE IT:

Yes, I'm Still Alive!

I'm really really trying to maintain this blog, but blogger just isn't always cooperative and it does it on both my home and work computers.  I can only assume my account is corrupt or something......I really don't want to lose everything.

I like blogger better than wordpress, it is just so much more simplier to use!

So bare with me as I work out the glitches....
