Winter WONDERland!

Last week was a really exciting week for me at work. I actually got to do the job that I want to do for two whole days! It did make me appreciate my solitude in the kennel, but helping the docs actually practice medicine on our sweet and even on the not so sweet (I got bit by both a dog and a cat one day) patients. I have been told that this is how I am going to be able to transition to the treatment area so I guess there are going to be many more days I go in and SURPRISE I'm a tech for the day.


That being said my next online class starts today and I'm excited and dreading the fact that this super procrastinator has to try and get it done again. LOL!

I hope that 2011 is going great for everyone so far. I am thinking it is going fantastic for myself. Because the tech shift is a longer one and frankly the days I have done it so far I have come home completely exhausted and worn out, Penny is going to be taking over some of the cooking duties. Since she doesn't have as much experience in this area, I have referred her to The Pioneer Woman who has the ability to make my mouth water over the internet! MMMMMM!

We had snow here at our little home in the south yesterday and are expecting more tomorrow. So I'm gonna have to go put on extra warm socks and crank up the car. You will be happy to know that the certainty of snow made me a cooking maven yesterday morning. After the morning kennel shift I cooked homemade Chili from scratch, Shells with Cheese (also from scratch and not a box!), and some cornbread. Ah, Penny and I have tummies that are in heaven indeed.

Hugs to you all!


  1. Thanks for the link to the Pioneer Woman. Lots of new ideas there!

    That is wonderful to hear you are advancing at work. Being busy does have it's benefits. Good for Penny stepping up! The internet is a super resource for the 'budding chef'. Heavenly tummies. LOL


  2. Thank you for that link. I love recipe sites and that one seems to have a lot of things which are different to things that I normally cook.

    I always cook from scratch and never from a box! I can't see the point of packet / ready made food. I'm a food snob :0 I saw ready made mashed potato in the supermarket the other day!
