♥For Today… Tuesday, May 18, 2010
♥Outside my window… Green grass, mud, and WET streets. A little bit of sun wanting to peep through.
♥I am thinking… about why the two dogs are scared of the cat? Especially Goldie, because he outweighs the cat by 75 pounds.
♥I am thankful for… losing 25 pounds, even if it did take a diabetes diagnosis to motivate me.
♥I am wearing… Duh… New Orleans sweatshirt, new black jeans, my waterproof black shoes. Still a bit of a one-hit wonder in the wardrobe department, but I did go shopping while I was “down south” on vacation in Virginia and Texas.
♥I am remembering… why I love having a dog of my own. Too much fun to train and play with and walk with. I hated to do too much beyond family stuff with Goldie, because I wanted him to bond with my Leah. Harley, however, is mine. All wild one-year-old wheaten terrier of her! What fun.
♥I am going… to get the last bit of unpacking done from my trip. Yes. I got back two weeks ago, but I had some catch-up to do, some homeschool planning/discussion to do, and a new dog to bring into the family.
♥I am hoping… Harley and the cat will learn to get along .
♥On my mind… wanna work on my novel. Which means getting my workout and morning routine finished soon. Need to get “writing routine” worked into my daily schedule.
♥One of my favorite things… Karen Kingsbury novels.
♥From the learning rooms… Leah’s working on her oral presentation on Maurice Ravel, due tomorrow, for her online Music and Leadership class.
♥From the kitchen… going to make some bread today, and planning to FINALLY get those garbanzos ready to try the garbanzo bean bread recipe later this week.
♥Around the house… routines, routines, routines. Laundry day today.
♥A few plans for the rest of the week… besides the garbanzo bean bread, I want to train Harley “sit” when I’m not doing a formal training session.
♥From my picture journal… My Mother’s Day present, Harley! She’s soft, lovable, loving, and eager to please. Come look at my Harley training blog at http://levels.honkersoftware.com/journals/vonitrainsdogs/harley.
We love Susan Ailsby’s Book of Training Levels at www.dragonflyllama.com. It’s a positive, incremental, relationship-building approach to clicker training your dog.
