Silencing the beast

My dog has been barking incessantly for the past five minutes and I want so badly to throw something at him to silence the treachery. I love him, (probably more than the rest of the human race will ever understand) but right now he falls right into the category of the 'little dog.' Anyone who has ever hated little dogs knows the bark that I speak of. It isn't the normal, “I just want to scare the FedEx man," or "get the hell out of my yard" bark. Instead, it's a high-pitched shrill that says "I'm barking because I can." Believe it or not, I didn’t set out to blog about my dog, but seeing as how I repeatedly fail to silence the little beastling, I could think of nothing else to write.

ahhh…silence at last.

Now, before my dog began singing his version of ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall, I was going to tell you about my recent endeavors. Over spring break my sister Joleen, taught me how to knit. What she doesn’t know, is that she taught me a few other lessons along the way, in addition to serving as a source of motivation. I was so sad to leave her and my grandma but simultaneously excited for the opportunities ahead. Since I came home, husband and I bought a new cookbook which I have already come to know and love. I am still knitting (with warm feelings of tenderness for the process), and have even found a scant amount of joy in keeping up with the household chores. Can you tell the end of the school year is near?

grrr…{he} just remembered that he stopped barking. More on my cooking adventures (and I do mean adventures) to come…

So Jake has expressed his disontent on your not being home to give the much needed and required attention to the little Jake! This will pass, I promise...

Cooking? When one is alone most of the time as I am, cooking for one doesn't sound great.....

Dont' ever, and I mean ever go to the supermarket hungry!!! I did today and what a mess to deal with. I bought everything from Salmon kabobs to two packages of Double Stuff Oreo Cookies! MMMMMM
Hang in there sweetie and keep on knitting. School will be out soon!
