What I did today

Instead of doing something constructive like cleaning or doing laundry...I made 2 necklaces (and about 6 bracelets). I really like both of necklaces...adds another dimention to my jewelry business. My friend Tonni has some of my bracelets listed at her 4Princess site. My new company is called Through being Cool. Eventually, I've got to get my own site, but for now Tonni is helping me out. THANKS TONNI!! I've really got to get some stuff done!


This is Oliver! I've been after Wayne for a long time for a new dog (since we had to put Sherman down over a year ago) and finally I got my wish. I won't do a long rant about how fruitless my search had been with because I think it's a wonderful site. It's just the rescues that use it have become a bit overzealous with their requirements for adoption. Like needing 5!! references (which we only needed 3 for our homestudy to adopt Julia from China), a fenced yard (yeah, I understand that one, but we have an acre plus and there's no way we could fence the the damned thing in!), and adoption fees well over $300 dollars. This is for dogs that were STRAYS! I decided that we could just find a puppy/dog that matched our needs without being put under the microscope. :-) Hey, if we can adopt from China...we should get approved for a dog, right? LOL! Well, I found Oliver in Nunica from a great lady named Pat. Yes, she's a breeder. But, she's super sweet and really loves her pups. By no means is she getting rich off it. Just enjoys raising good dogs. Oliver is 11 weeks old and a purebred English Springer Spaniel. He's been wonderful so far. No accidents, just doesn't like the crate so far. :-)
