Oh, what a beautiful morning :)

I'm posting from outside this morning - laptops and wireless internet are so wonderful!

I feel like we've been up forever already - I got up at 5:45 with Luna, then had to get back up at like 6:30 to get ready to go to the dentist for a follow-up appointment for Mark, and to try and figure out why one of my teeth is hurting so badly when I chew (it's one where a cavity was filled - they think it's a bite issue.)

Now, I'm sitting out here in the backyard while Luna digs holes in the ground. It's her favorite game, and she's pretty darn good at it. Keeps her occupied, which keeps me happy :)

Always got something in her mouth...

Whenever she digs like this, it always makes me think of the Seven Dwarfs from Snow White singing the "Heigh Ho" song ... you know the one...
"We dig dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig in a mine the whole day through...
To dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, dig is what we like to do..."

She's so sweet.

In other, non-Luna-related news ... I had my first total cooking FAIL in quite a long time last night. I was trying a new recipe, which I usually enjoy doing and usually goes really well. I thought this one would be the same. Savory Broccoli Bread Pudding - sounds pretty tasty, right? I love bread pudding.

Unfortunately, I think I only love dessert bread pudding, because the "Savory" part mainly just tasted like soggy bread. It was more wet than normal bread pudding too, for some reason ... Anyway, we sort of picked the veggies out of it, and the whole dish just went straight in the garbage. So sad :( So now I've got to come up with something else to make this week, since we were planning on eating leftovers for a couple days. Oh well ... I guess you can't win 'em all :) I'm just thankful that I have way more hits than misses in my little world of cooking.

Speaking of those hits ... I'm about to post a recipe for Curried Butternut Squash Soup on my food blog in just a few minutes. It is delicious, nutritious, and you should definitely check it out and try it :)

I can't believe it's Thursday already - this month has flown by so quickly! October is almost over... I'm totally not ready for the holidays yet. I'm not even remotely in that mindset... Hopefully I'll get there soon though :) Maybe the giant box of Christmas decorations that my mom has waiting for me at her house will help!

Happy Thursday to everybody - the weekend is almost here!


  1. Awe, she is such a cutie!!!!

    I don't like cooking fail's! Def had my fair share of them. ;-)

  2. She is so tiny!! And super adorable!

  3. Sorry about your cooking mishap :o( I hate those nights.

    You're so making me want a puppy!! Sadly, I think my 3 cats might object.

    And I have been trying to get through Halloween before I bought anything Christmas related, but I broke down when I found really cute cards in Walmart today. I lasted longer than I thought I would, lol. Enjoy what's left of your week!

  4. I don't think broccoli bread pudding sounds very good at all but I am sorry it didn't turn out the way you were hoping.

    That dog is just too cute, reminds me of Lily as a puppy, back when we really liked her :)

  5. Oh my gosh! She is so, so beautiful! Thank you so much for linking me! <3 I want another puppy so badly now. :)
