Mom's Secret Identify

You know that my mom is many things, mom, martial artist, blogger, worker-bee, but did you know that mom has another, secret identity? My mom is a "Personal Shopper" for people like Auntie and Blondie.

Here's the story. Blondie is going to a black tie wedding and needed a fancy dress. Mom to the rescue. Off to the mall (mom got there before Blondie) and by the time Blondie got there mom had several choices, including the winner; a black and aqua beaded jacket and camisole style blouse with harem style black pants.

Then they went off to by work clothes. Well, mom was batting 1000 at this as well. (Mom made Auntie buy a blouse that Auntie described as a "tablecloth" (it's plaid) and whenever Auntie wears it she gets compliments.) Several hundred dollars later and Blondie is set for the rest of the summer and mom is ready for bed. Snuggle time!!!!

Beatiful Day

It was a great day. No rain, no humidity, not too hot and lots of sunshine. I just can't ask for anything more. Well, maybe if mom were here to spend it with us, instead of having to go off and WORK!

Half the play set is gone.

But I am sure she'll get used to it.

These are some of mom's forty something green bean plants. Auntie asked if mom was feeding an army. Mom said she liked green beans and she does have to feed memere and pepere.

Mom's peas are looking good. She has to get out there and string them up, though. She sure does hope those are the sugar snap peas. lol

Easy Like Sunday Morning

For mom, Lucky and me, at least. Dad and PlusOne are going to help memere by doing weed whacking and hedge trimming. That is, if it's not raining.

Silly Saturday

I think this sums my feeling about water up very nicely.

Rainy Friday

It rained all day yesterday. And PlusOne abandoned us to go spend time with Memere and Pepere. He is not going anywhere today, as mom is coming home from work early to spend time with him.

It is supposed to rain most of today, tomorrow and Sunday as well. You know what that means. Yup, you got it. SNUGGLE TIME!

Who's The Boss

I would say Lucky is the boss, here. Wouldn't you?

Mom's Garden

Last year mom's peas didn't grow at all. So this year, she made two furrows and dumped all the seeds in them. Look at them grow!

And this is one of the brand spanking new raspberry plants mom bought. Latham red, which was supposed to bloom later in the year. It has berries on it already. Can you believe it?

Mom is very excited.

Mom Is Jealous

Because this is what we will be doing while she goes off to work. Life is good if you are a pug, or out of school.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the best dad EVER. Our dad is a great place to sit on and

snuggle up to.

A great place to sleep on and

big strong arms to hold us tight.

A great dad to PlusOne and

a man with a great sense of humor.

Yup, our dad. He's the best. Happy Father's Day Dad!

Mean Mom

Mom took us for a walk to meet and walk home with PlusOne on his last day of school. It's not a bad walk, over half a mile, but it wasn't too hot or sunny. We waited patiently for PlusOne to come out and then it started to rain.

I HATE rain. I won't go out in it if I don't have to. I did NOT enjoy walking home in the rain. Over half a mile. PlusOne carried Lucky. Did mom carry me? No, she did NOT! She was very mean to me, making me walk all the way home, walking in puddles and getting soaking wet.

When we got home mom toweled us off until we were mostly dry. then they changed their clothes and we took a nap. A long nap. And I ate all the treats! Serves mom right for being so mean to me.

The Promoted

Last night was a promotion, not a graduation. Mom thinks that is pretty funny. She never had a "promotion" when she passed eighth grade. Oh well.

In other news, dad is real mad at me for getting through the barricade and squeezing through the slider to get onto the back porch and get into the garbage. I better lay low for a while. If only I knew how.

PlusOne Graduates

It doesn't seem possible, but PlusOne is graduating from 8th grade tonight.

Heck it was only yesterday that he started middle school.

And the day before that he started first grade.

Sheesh, mom can hardly believe it.

Oh yeah, you might have heard, Boston brought home Lord Stanley's Cup for the first time since 1972! Su-WEEET! It is Par-Tay time in New England!

Rainy And Cold

Part Two
It's Bike Week here in New Hampshire, which means it will rain all week. It managed to be nice (if you call 64 degrees nice) so PlusOne could go on the 8th Grade Field Trip to Whale's Tails Water Park for a day of swimming and fun. Mom thinks she would have frozen to death, but PlusOne said they got to jump in the hot tub at the end and that was awesome.

Lucky and I are just staying warm and giving lots of cuddles to whomever will accept them. Are we really sure it's JUNE?

Time To Go

Mom has decided it is time for half of this play set to go. PlusOne and Mr. Karate (as well as mom) want the swing set to stay, but the rest is coming down. Of course, since mom built the thing, (over 12 years ago) it may take a while to get the darn thing apart.

Mom may build a greenhouse in it's place, that way she can have fresh green beans all year round.

Green Beans Growing

Mom just planted these about a week ago. Look at them grow! My green beans!

Mom planted these inside, just to use plant the rest of the seeds. Look at them

and then look at this mutant that was planted at the same time.

I bet his green beans are going to be HUGE! Don't you?

I Can't Look!

This is how mom felt about last night's hockey game. If the Bruins lose the series it's because mom posted something about it. She should have ignored it. Paid no attention to it. Pretended it wasn't happening. It's all HER fault! I so don't want to be mom.

Friday, June 10, 2011

Lord Stanley's Cup

Mom has been watching the series while hiding behind her hands. She is afraid of showing too much interest and then having the Bruins crash and burn. Been there, done that. Not interested in doing it again. So here is our show of support for the Bruins,

as well as a reminder how cute Lucky and PlusOne were about 7-1/2 years ago.

Another Scorcher

It was at least 95 degrees here yesterday, and will be just as warm today, except for the big chance of thunderstorms, hail and strong winds. I guess you can figure out what Lucky and I will be doing today. That's right waiting for mom to get home and turn on the air conditioning!

Take My Word For It

These things...


Honestly, I wouldn't lie to you about this.

I really wouldn't.

Gracie Jiu Jitsu Fun

This is Mr. Karate, Mom, Ryron Gracie (Pronounced Hyron) and PlusOne. The family had a 2-1/2 hour seminar with him on Jiu Jitsu and ground fighting Friday. They all said it was AWESOME and they can't wait for him to come back for even more fun.

(Seriously, are they weird or what, rolling around on the ground grappling with other people is fun?) Anyway, they all said Mr. Gracie was super nice and VERY cool and they had a LOT of fun.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Pug Belleh! That's easy all right.

Not In The Mood

I'm tired, and not in the mood to try and be witty or bad, pesky or brilliant.

Do you have a problem with that?

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Thankful Thursday

We are very thankful that we did NOT have the terrible tornado that hit Massachusetts yesterday, though New Hampshire did have tornado warnings. We do not normally get tornadoes in New Hampshire and that makes mom really happy. That makes me really happy, too.

I am very happy that Mason found his way home after the tornado that blew him away from his family. Lucky and I are sending him lots of pug snorts for a speedy recovery. I hope all of my pug friends are safe and sound in this wacky weather we are having.
