fruits & vegetables {with a side of muppet}

with lots of candy on the horizon,
i figured i'd mention my health elixir.
behold, the green smoothie.
life is better when i have a green drink
every. single. day.
today, i drank two of these {that's 32 ounces}.
the other waits patiently until the morrow.
green smoothies will stay fresh
in the fridge for a few days.

i loosely follow this recipe.

i've also been taking juice plus
every day since march.
i used to buy this through my doctor
when i was pregnant with ned,
but now, jan is a distributor,
so i buy it through her.

ned takes it, too.
he takes half the adult dose.
he swallows the capsules with
a spoonful of yogurt {great tip}.

for more information, go here.


and here's your side of muppet
she has some astounding new tricks {really}
that i will share here soon.
but this tiny wag that she does
makes my heart do flip-flops.

weather change

today's change in the weather
mirrored my mood exactly.
almost instantaneously,
the weather shifted
from glorious-crisp-sunny
to moody-windy-cloudy.
the overall effect was very cozy.
i baked more of this
and spontaneous napping occurred

what we're watching

ned and i have been watching
on netflix.
mykel hawke & ruth england are married.
he's a kentucky-raised military man
/slash/ survivalist expert.
she's a british tv journalist
/slash/ survivalist expert-in-training.
it's a good mix.

{warning: it's not vegetarian friendly}

give it a go if you've got netflix.

three favorite things

the first two of these favorites can be found at target.
{the third, however, cannot}
whenever i buy things like this at a big retailer,
things i consider to be alternative,
i am casting my vote for more wholesome, safe products.

{hint: they don't smell like radish}

{try the coconut nectar}

scenes from monday

taking this cutie for a walk
{i carry her most of the way}
she still doesn't have an official name,
but we're really leaning towards betsy.
today, we learned that her mom's name is bets.
she had a special visit today from the family who saved her.
she is so loved.

legos at the library

if there was an award for "weirdest" ned said mine would win

tomatoes after dark
it's getting cold & their days are numbered.
i never tire of the fragrant leaves,
the official scent of summer.

signing with deaf dogs

she is deaf, so we're learning lots
about how to train her.
the dog in the video below is a double merle australian shepherd,
with markings very similar to our puppy.

making friends

this friendship seems promising

we are taking this friendship nice & slow

Friday, October 18, 2013


this little puppy
was going to be put to sleep
because she is deaf.
marian's friend, wyatt, rescued her.
he saved her life and found her a home.
{via instagram!}

her home is here, with us.

look how tiny she is
she is an australian shepherd.
she was the runt of the litter.
she is 6 weeks old & weighs just over 3 lbs.

we haven't settled on a name for her.
we have 3 or 4 favorites,
but we're open to suggestions.
