Random updates

Lots of updates on random things, not enough of each for a blog so I threw them all together.

The baby birds are getting bigger! It's getting harder to get their pictures because Momma has decided that I'm not her friend. She chases me back in the house with that pointy beak of hers.

Trina and I went to see Norah Jones at Red Butte, blog to follow!

This morning I let Clementine out to potty and when she came in she was limping. I tried waiting it out but her poor little leg just kept swelling. Took her to the vet, apparently she was stung by a bee or something and had an allergic reaction. Here she is playing with the new toy she got for being such a good girl at the vet. Now I'm just wondering if everytime she gets stung by a bee it's gonna cost me $120.

I have been a slacker this year. My back yard looks like the weed field it was when I bought the house and my vegetable garden is dead, everything but the artichoke.

Everyone told me artichokes are perennials and that I wouldn't get anything until at least the second, possibly the third year. I have three artichokes! Maybe you just have to ignore them.

So ends today's random updates. Back to yard work!


  1. I wish I knew how to eat an artichoke...poor clementine...kiss her for NanNan

  2. Clementine was just faking it to get a toy. I do it all the time.

  3. Random updates are fun! I did ok by my front garden this year, but my backyard ones are in a sad, weed-infested shape. I just couldn't bring myself to go outside and work in them in the heat wave we've been having! I have big plans for the cooler weather though :-). And I'm glad you're puppy is ok!

  4. OMG Poor Clementine, but seriously how cute is she?!?!?!

  5. Your poor baby Clementine! I'm glad she's okay though. I love artichokes!


Say it, you know you wanna!
