Newest Addition

It had dawned on me this week that it has been a long time since I last blogged about...anything.

I seemed to have gotten swallowed up by life and am now only getting back to the surface to breath.

Let me see if I can but the last month or so into a "cliff note" of some sort.

In February we welcomed into our home a Golden Retriever. We adopted him from a rescue group that is out of Austin area. I had started the ball rolling on the adoption process in December. There where several stages to go through but in the end it was so worth it. We where matched up with this very handsome 2 year old. He came to us with the name Banx, and since he seems to answer to it, we kept that name. Banx!

First night home after being picked up from his foster parents

His first time in the bay by our home

He found the native birds to most interesting!

After a day playing in the water, what better way to relax than on the couch

Feeling more and more at relaxed in his new home

He has done wonderfully adapting to our home and our life style. He is fully house trained and has had some obedience training as well before coming to us, his forever home.
He keeps me motivate with our morning walks everyday. Which is good for me and great exercise for him. He is friendly to all he meets and had just been a blessing for our family all the way around.

The weather here is in full Spring Bloom mode. I have been working in the front and backyard getting ready for flowers and vegetables. I should be able to get some of my planting done this coming week! Very excited for all the spring colors and the herbs I want to plant this year. I already have roses blooming and am drying them when they are done.

I have also had abit of a wake up call or rather a slap from my beloved Goddess to get my act together about my health. I have made the dreaded Dr.s appt. and will be addressing those issues coming up soon.

I do want to tell all of you that I have still checked in from time to time to read your blogs and try to stay current. I enjoy each and every one of you that takes the time to blog!! Lots of good info and some light hearted stories to keep a smile on my face. Thank you.  =]
