Great Reads

Well as many of you know I have joined a reading site...check widget!  I have decided that 25 books is a good number for me, hubby thinks this is to low!  Well we well see.  I have already ready 8 of the 25 to read and wanted to spread some of my joy. 
I got my Kindle for Christmas from my Mom and have so far love every minute that I have spent reading on it!   I have been looking on the free and 'low' priced books, wanted to get every bang for my buck...or as it was Mom's buck!
I downloaded 2 books by Terri Reid, Loose Ends and Good Tidings, both were awesome!!!  I read both, each  in a day and a half.  The story moved along so smoothly and the chemistry between the characters is great.  I had to look online to see when the next book came out, that's how invested in the characters I became.
If you are looking for a great read you need to check out these books!  Amazon..Terri Reid  there are great and HIGHLY recommended.

Well instead of going anywhere today, we stayed nice and warm in the house.  Sometimes that is just what you need to recoup for the week.  I also had one sick little boy, have my fingers crossed that his brother doesn't get it also.  Temperature and cough all day really make for one tired young man.  Hope he is feeling better in the morning, but not getting my hopes up to high, already made arrangements for O to get to school in the morning.  Just keep your fingers crossed for me that he is better, hate it when my boys are sick.

Since I have been at home all day I have gotten some cleaning done and caught up on the laundry! :)  I also joined a reading website and have challenged myself to read 25 books this year.  I added a widget to motivate myself, but really I love to read and it shouldn't be to much of a challenge for me.  Maybe I will get passed the 25!  That would be awesome.  I got a Kindle for Christmas and so far have really been enjoying reading on it.  Much easier that I thought!  Well wish me luck with my challenge and I will try to keep you all up to date.  Off to READ!

Went and saw Tot yesterday!  She looked great, didn't get to take a picture, but all I could say is WOW!  She still has some serious wounds and has a lot of recovery yet to do, but she was happy to see me and the boys.  The vet said it would still be another couple of months before the wounds are finally healed.  She was so sweet and never uttered a sound while the boys petted her, you would not even know that she had been attacked by another dog she was so gentle.  I will try to see her again this weekend and will remember my camera.  I just wanted everyone to know how she was doing.  If you are interested in helping out her owners with the huge medical bills, feel free to drop me a note and I will be happy to get you all the info you need.  Thanks
Don't forget that I am donating 50% of my sales from my shops, so feel free to drop in and check out what I have on sale.

New design

Thought I might change it up a little and whala a new blog look!  Hope you all like.  Had to keep my earthtones, love green, and I think it is easy to look at.  Will be going by today sometime to see Tot and hope to get a picture, so you all can see what a great dog she is. :)
Comments about new look are always welcome, thanks.

Tot's Story

 As many of you have seen I love my dog.  On Friday of this past week there was a terrible dog fight in our neighborhood, involving 3 dogs...2 aggressers and the 1 they were killing.  Now I have 2 young boys and as you can imagine this was not something that was going to be tolerated by my husband and me.  I was at work when all this happened but my husband was on his way to get our youngest son.  He tried everything he could to break up the fight.  On his way to pickup our son he saw a officer and told him what was happening, 20 min and animal control was here.  Took them quite a while to pick up the 2 dogs but thankfully they were picked up.
I went over the other day to see the dog that had been attached.  Her owner took her to the vet and 700$ later brought her home.  Poor dog had to get 15 stitches and 3 tubes. :(
I have decided to donate 50% of all my sales in my shops, Lucy's etsy shop and Lucy's Zibbt shop,  to help them with the medical bills, until further notice.  I will try to keep you all up to date with how she is doing.  If you want to do something special for, Tot ( the injured Husky), please feel free to contact me through facebook or this post.  I will be happy to give you their address. :)
Thank you for all the prayers and if she is looking better on Wednesday I will try to get a picture!

A Dog and the snow

Just thought with all the snow and wintry weather that we experiencing across the country; I would add a little light to the dreary.  Normally I would get all mushy and post some pictures of my boys, but I thought it would be fun to post something different.  So here are some pictures of our silly husky, named Rex, enjoying his favorite time of the year....winter and a snow 'storm'.

Not all of these pictures are from the snow we have today, but you can be sure I will take some more.  Today it was 25 and all he wanted to do was stay outside and sit in his chair.  That picture to come.  :)
