A little slice of life

Puppies and toddlers have a lot in common. They both bite, they're both cute, and they both draw an audience. At my cousin's birthday dinner on Sunday, we all sat around watching Blue, the newest puppy in the family. He loves tormenting Ernie, his (adoptive) uncle. Ernie, on the other hand, hates it. He's kind of curmudgeonly and never in the mood to wrestle with a puppy twice his size. So sometimes Blue gets banished to the back porch (first picture) and sometimes we let him and Ernie fight/play (second picture). Blue loves putting his paw over Ernie, but you can see in Ernie's face how much he's loving that. 

The next picture down is of some hoops I made this week - two of many. I'm loving it. If you live in Michigan and would like to buy one, let me know!

The last picture is of a cat sleeping on a rug in Downtown Home and Garden, where I went today to get some tomato plants. I haven't grown any tomatoes in a couple years and am excited to do it again this summer. Yummm.... garden tomatoes. I just have to be patient until July....

How do you make a hula hoop? I am so curious!

You make the coolest hula hoops I've ever seen.

I love those adorable pictures of the dogs! So cute!! Also, I agree with Jeff about the hoops - the best!

Just be careful when growing those Tomatos, you don't want to come face to face with your enemy; the dreaded Tomato Hornworm.
