Simpatico: A Letter, An Award and a Visitor (Shudders)


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

A Letter, An Award and a Visitor (Shudders)

Woot!! Miss Nola gaves us the bestest award ever! :)  She is one of the most fantastically talented girls ever.  We love reading her blog each day! Her momma is a great photographer and Miss Nola is definitely a fantastic model.

If you aren't friends, please go visit and become friends LIKE NOW! :) No need to thank us.. We know.... We rock... We loves you, too! :)

The rules of this award are:

  1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award and link back to them.
  2. Tell you how I started my blog and why I blog.
  3. Nominate 10 other bloggers.
We originally started the blog to chronicle the things going on in the Life of the Pennington Family... cool recipes, neat crafts, etc.  Then Mom figured out that we, Milo, Dixie and now Newby, are definitely better subjects than boring old popsicle stick crafts.

I nominate the following blogs for the Addictive Blogger Award:

We gots the sweetest card from Reuben! :) He had a chip-in program to help with some Dawg-tor expenses.  We sold a few bones and some toys.  When we didn't have enough we logged into Mom's Paypal account and sent a little bit of her money.

Don't tell her we know the password cause we got our eyes on some wayy cool stuff on Etsy.

We had a visitor recently. He isn't the largest we've had, but... still... he was rather... uhm... large.

I would like to think that he appreciated my spraying of him so he could go on a rafting trip, less the raft, down the kitchen drain and out into the river, pond, ocean or wherever woe-begotten spiders travel.

I believe he is sitting on a beach towel in Florida right now... waiting to scare some early arriving snowbird.


This was what our weekend looked like... Sunny, gorgeous...
If you've never been to Kentucky, well the central part of the state, this is what you see down every country road.... Miles and miles of fences surrounding the beautiful bluegrass.  We didn't see any horses close enough to picture for you. Perhaps another time.

Such a pretty award from the gawguss Nola. Muffin and I think that you should try making some doxies outta popsicle sticks, now that would be great entertainment for all of us :)

Ewwww.... BIG spider..... Glad he went on a "swirley" ride to someplace else. We get huge ones in Florida and Mommy won't let us out until she sprays them all.

Sweet picture from your car ride.... Very pretty countryside views.

Hope you have a good week!
