bbq and a birthday

Nat's parents were here for a visit last week, it was soo nice to have them here! They put in hard days driving across the country in Nat's car that we had to leave home when we moved here and they arrived late the day before Nat's birthday. Facebook is great as we were able to track their voyage and knew that they would arrive within the hour. For his birthday his mom and I made him a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting (a tradition in their home) while Nat and his dad bought a bbq, what a fantastic gift, I love summer suppers on the bbq.

During their visit Val the expert painter helped me paint our living room, dining room and kitchen. Checkout the pictures on my other blog

10 years younger?

Nugget badly needed a haircut, he was a small dog with big fur. I had cut out some mattes and burdox but he just plain had too much fur. So this past Tuesday was the day...groomer day. I dropped him off in the morning instructing the groomer to "give him a good cut" "buzz off his fur" she showed me a spaniel and asked if it was a good length, sure was. When asked what I wanted her to do with the tail I said whatever and left Nugget there for the day after he peed on the door frame. That afternoon when I arrived to pick him up she showed me this little puppy with a poofy tail, he sounded like Nugget so I brought him home. Next time we will have his tail shaved too, but he is still pretty cute, much better without the fur and apparently 3 pounds lighter according to the scale at the vet's..

Nuggets and sunny drives

It has been brought to our attention that we are lacking in the blogging area so I thought I would compile a little update. Let's see...We are settling into our new community have found a great church and we are making new friends. This past weekend the weather was beautiful so on Saturday we decided to load Crosby into the car and take a drive to Williams Lake to see where my parents had lived for several years and where I was born.Soon after we arrived in the city we realized that our map didn't cover the area we needed to find my old house so we called mom and she directed us from home via telephone to our old homestead.The fence was built by my grandfather for me so I wouldn't tumble off the edge of the lot.
Voila! The place where I came into the world!!

Sunday afternoon we decided to go for a drive since it was soo nice outside, it was originally going to be a walk but it was too cold along the river so we settled for a drive instead. We headed to the tourist-y monument, the largest gold pan in the world for a photo op.

As we were heading back the the car I noticed cars on the highway were slowing down and saw that the cause was a little dog running on the road, I headed over to see if I could capture the little guy and Nat quickly put Crosby into the car and came along with his leash. We found that he had a collar and was very friendly but there was nobody around with him. We waited in the parking lot for a few minutes and then loaded him into the car. Now since the SPCA wasn't open I convinced Nat to let us bring him home and I placed ads on the radio and at the SPCA. So nobody called to inquire about "little dog" and the lady at the SPCA said he may have escaped from a puppy mill so maybe it is for the best. As of now we have a new addition to our family, his name is Nugget as a reference to his size and the place where we found him. Welcome Nugget! Nugget has an appointment with a pair of clippers in his near future.

Our new house...sideways

Sorry it's sideways, I was caught up in the moment of being in my future new home. But don't worry, it looks fine if you turn your computer sideways.
