Day 30/30 Marco Photo Challenge

Day 30/30 Marco Photo Challenge My dogs have such a tough life. Sleep, eat, nap, drink water, nap, eat, nap and then it's time for bed. I want to be one of my dogs. This Lady aka Lady Bug she was my first Westie. She is the one that spend the most time with me. She lays on the cough by me and sleeps with me at night. She is my best bud and I love her dearly. You can really see but she almost always lays on a quilt that my mother-in-law made for me many years ago. She thinks it is her blanket and she must lay on it. And of course I let her she is my sweetie.

Day 20/30 of the Marco Photo Challange

Day 20/30 Marco Photo Challenge This is my sons idea of how to discourage Robin's from roosting in our window wells. We have this very annoying Fat Robin that keeps tapping on our window like he wants in. He also keeps leaving little birdie messes. So out came the BB Gun. Now it is his mission to plug the little guy. Hopefully he will go away and stay away.

Day 13/30 Marco Photo Challenge

Day 13/30 Marco Photo Challenge, Christina and I went over to downtown Portland, Or today an outside one of the shop was a small Ginkgo biloba tree growing in a pot. It was very cute and just showing the first sign of new spring leaves. I can't wait until she has Brice and the three of us can go walking around to all of the little shops.

We also saw this beautiful old stone church in Portland, Or. It has some really great stone work and stained glass windows.

Katie giving me the raspberry

Day 7/30 Marco Photo Challenge. This is one of my Westies the really pudgy one. Katie she was giving me a raspberry. She needs groomed soooooooo bad. Maybe one night this week. I have four Westies so it is very difficult to groom them all on the same day. Maybe I need to call the mobile dog groomer. I've seen one driving around in my neighborhood just keep forgetting to get the phone number.

Here it is photo from day 4. Peppercorns in the pepper mill. I'm really tired tonight still not sure how I'm feeling. Even a little stomach pain almost sends me into a panic. I think I take a nausea and pain pill and head to bed. Hopefully I'll feel tip top tomorrow.

Day 3 of the Marco Photo Challange

Well I kind of missed day 3 as I was still a little dopey from spending all afternoon in to early evening in the ER. Had really bad abdominal pain at work thought I was having a heart attach. Turned out to be gallbladder. They gave me pain meds and sent me home need to make an appointment to have it removed. I don't want to ever have that pain again. I'll see if I can come up with something today.
