Sophie & Shamrock: Fun with Photos!

Standard

Happy Sophie & Shamrock Saturday!

~

Lately, I’ve been playing around with photo apps, particularly one called Etchings, which I found on Apps Gone Free. I’ve been taking old photos of Sham & Sophie and making them a little artsy…

Sweet Shamrock Bugaboo & Sophie Jean

Photos they didn’t really want me to take…

A bit of novelty…

Then I had a little more fun with it and played around with photos from vacation.

Check out these cool ones of Uluru!

I love this one of Rob from when we were in Australia, exploring the Great Ocean Road

They Like It Best When We’re Both at Home…

Standard

Sophie & Shamrock Saturday

When I used to conduct wine tastings, Rob would often tell me that Sophie would whine the whole time I was away.

But at night, when I went to bed, often before Rob, uber-cuddly Sophie would not snuggle. Instead, she’d choose a spot at the end of the bed, lying with her nose pointed to the corner, which was also toward the door. I don’t think she even slept until Daddy came to bed!

Now I understand what he means.

This is Shamrock and Sophie when I am home alone and they are waiting for Daddy:

Noses pointed toward the front door!

Noses pointed toward the front door!

They bark at every sound that could possibly be him turning into the driveway, opening the garage door, pulling into the garage or walking through the door.

Attentive pooches!

Attentive pooches!

Reading a book in silence is nearly impossible. It helps to have some sort of background noise to distract them.

But once Daddy gets home, all is right with the world.

Happy Saturday!

Sleep

Standard

I don’t even know where last week went.

Yes, I do. I spent it sleeping, for the most part.

I don’t remember the last time I slept so much in my life.

I felt like I was hit by a truck with this cold. I’d go into work and suddenly become woozy. Then I went home. It happened every day last week.

Then the uncontrollable cough hit. Bronchitis? Perhaps.

Then the aches, the weakness, the hot and cold factor. The flu? Maybe.

I drank my fluids.

I slept. A lot. 

I thought that after taking a four hour nap in the afternoon, I would have trouble going to bed and sleeping through the night.

I didn’t.

I’m feeling much better now.

I have a feeling that nasty cough is going to stick with me for a while.

But as long as I continue to drink my fluids and get my sleep, I’ll make it through.

I’m not as productive as I would be if my health was 100%.

But I am alive and I have that to be grateful for today.

Besides, snuggles with my little Sophie Jean have increased.

And who can complain about that?

Cheers to your health!

What they did *after* their summer vacation…

Standard

Sophie & Shamrock Saturday

Last week, I shared what Sophie & Sham did on their Summer Vacation. But what did they do when it was all over? I think they were a wee bit tired…

What They Did on Their Summer Vacation

Standard

Sophie & Shamrock Saturday

We took our annual summer vacation to Michigan. Sophie and Sham enjoyed a little paddle boating…

…a little swimming…

…and a little playing of Chase the Bobber. Don’t worry, Rob removes the fish hook for this game! It used to be one of Benny‘s favorites. It was our first year at the lake without him. But his favorite game, love of the lake and memory lives on.

Happy Summer!
