mystery update...the near house update...and the new pup update


You know what I love?

Posting a mystery and solving it by way of elimination.
We don't have a firm answer yet...
but we have our suspicions.
Once a gift giver...always a gift giver.  =)

You know what else I love?

When I say..."we should bring our pressure washer over there so they can wash that deck."
And he does.
And uses it too.


All the menfolk got involved. 
Between the three of them...
the decks are clean and the bottom stair post has been reinforced...
and I feel a lot better.


I wish he could stay this age forever....sort of.
I said to my beloved yesterday...4 1/2 is the best age.
Sweet and almost sensible and still reach over to hold hands.


This fellow wore his boy clothes and shoes and happily watched the water sports while swinging gently in his princess swing.


All work...
must be followed by swinging as high as you can...
because you know how to pump and every new thing learned is just the best.


Now about Kobee.
I am updating just in case his sweet previous owner is wondering and coming by my blog to check.

When Kobee decided she liked farm life just fine we went out and bought her a new house.



We went to that place where people spend millions of dollars every year on things for their pets.
It is easy to see how that happens.

We left with training treats..
and not one but two new toys...
which she is loving.

As I write this in the tent...
she is happily sitting under our table.


She is a good pup and is sleeping well at night...
after a bit of crying like babies tend to do.

She comes and sits and lays down when we ask.
Just now...she's left to go eat her supper...
but she'll be back under our table to keep us company until bedtime.

all for now...

  5. That is a lot of decks on their house! Oh the feeling of pumping my legs and getting so high in the swing I got dizzy! :) I'm glad Kobee is settling in. It's fun to spoil a dog and so easy to do. Enjoy!

  8. A cute post about things that bring value to life. I wish too that one could put the little ones on hold a bit longer. Our 41/2 year old twins are so precious right at this stage. I loved my three days with the boys.
    KOBE makes a beautiful addition to your farm. He will be loved.

  9. Thanks for the updates, Lovella, there's still a lot happening over at your place. Your dog sounds as though he is loving the new space to run, your grands have a marvelous yard in which to play and learn new things, your kids some lovely, clean, outdoor space to enjoy. But I am still curious about the grillstone giver!

  10. Congratulations on your new family member. Lovella! Kobee looks like a very friendly dog.

    We did power washing this weekend. I am always amazed by how much better everything looks when we do it! I'm glad your husband had good helpers and supervisors! :)
