Ollie's Dog Stairs
I'm very excited because almost three weeks ago (Jan 27th) we bought some stairs for Ollie to use to get up on the bed. I'm sick of having to pick him up every single time he wants up there. I never did get my last Chihuahua, Little Boy, to use the stairs, but I was determined to make Ollie use them. I kept telling the Captian that I was more stubborn than Ollie is and he was going to use them or never get up there again. Well, guess what? I was right! I am more stubborn than he is! It took him three weeks, but he finally got up there TWICE today without me saying a word or helping him at all. YAY!!! A breakthrough! I'm ridiculously happy about it. My little Ollie is a man today. My patience and stubbornness paid off.
A "Real" Bakery!
Since it's was Valentines Day and all...
When we first walked in, I nearly died at this sight!
Seriously. My heart beat sped up a little.
Such beautiful cakes she makes!
We brought home a box of various cookies and two pieces of Baklava, and we sat outside at a table on the sidewalk and shared a Napoleon and a Tiramisu with coffee. So indulgent.
And lookie what the Captain got me for Valentines Day...
An Etimo Rose Tulip Set of Crochet Hooks
Case, scissors, and needles included.
Pardon the glare.
I had dropped a few rather huge hints that this is what I wanted in lieu of flowers. I think I said something like, "This is what I want instead of flowers," and emailed him a link to purchase them. Ha-ha-ha. We have to ask for what we want, girls. Don't be shy!
And lest you think all we eat is CRAP...
These are the dinner salads I made the other night with our Tuna dinner.
So fresh and good!
(Sue me...I sprinkled some cheese on top)
And a pic of my veggie sandwich we had for lunch today out on the back porch.
The filling starting at the bottom: Mustard & a little mayo, a slice of Pepper-Jack cheese, a thick layer of fresh baby spinach, cucumber, tomato, a good dose of dried oregano, and a little salt and black pepper, all on two slices of Orowheat Nuttygrain bread.
