Remember That Saying

Be careful what you wish for, because you may get it

Yeah, I wasn't careful and I got my wish. Hot Hot Hot. Mom put the bedroom air conditioners in last night. It's gonna be a HOT summer, I think.

But I DO love my sunshine.

Mom IS a Geek!

She SO can't wait for this movie! And yes, she thinks he's "kinda hot" as well. lol

Tattle Tale Tuesday

This is mom's solution to my eating her the broccoli.

A garden table four feet off the ground and near nothing I can climb up on.

My broccoli is looking good, even if I can't reach it.

So is dad's romaine lettuce. Mom is such a killjoy.

Can You Believe SNOW!!!

 Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States at 6,288 ft (1,917 m) and the most prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River. It is famous for dangerously erratic weather. For 76 years, until 2010, a weather observatory on the summit held the record for the highest wind gust directly measured at the Earth's surface, 231 mph (372 km/h or 103 m/s), on the afternoon of April 12, 1934
Here were the conditions on Mount Washington last night.

Temperature  22.8°F
Wind35.1 mph
Direction36° (NE)
Gust39.1 mph
Wind Chill4.0°F

Before mom went to bed, Dad told her that the weather guessers were saying there could be 5 - 8 inches of snow on Mount Washington overnight. Boy, am I HAPPY I don't live there!

Three Day Weekend!!!

Mom is very excited that she has a three day weekend coming up. I am very happy that I will have two mornings mom can sleep late and I can snuggle up with her. Lucky is happy just because. Sounds good to me!

May Showers???

We have had a lot of rain in the past few days. We had a big thunderstorm last night and we may have some more tomorrow. I think it's great, because all this rain will make my green beans grow big and strong. And because Lucky and I are safe, sound and dry, inside.

Almost Wordless Wednesday

I don't know why she's so tired, it's not like she's done anything other than sit in PlusOne's lap.

Mary Mary Quite Contrary

How does your garden grow? Mom planted all her sunflowers, green beans, sugar snap peas, and strawberries  this weekend. She even a planted a sweet red bell pepper plant and some carrots. She bought some broccoli plants that were already started (since she has a hard time growing them from seed) and she even planted some lettuce. And most of the time she was outside, I was right beside her. Mom thought it was cute that I wanted to be close to her. I think it's going to be a good haul this summer.

Mmm Mmm Good

Here is the pork while mom and dad were "shredding" it. Trust me when I say they didn't need to shred it at all. It was falling apart on them. And boy was it GOOD! (Mom dropped a piece and I got it.)

Here it is all done. You can see me patiently waiting for dad to give me some. He did not get the hint and I did NOT get any. Mom says it was because the barbecue sauce would have made my stomach upset. I say it's because they were HOGGING all the delicious pulled port. Which sounds like the truth to you?

Easy Like Sunday Morning

It's going to be another happy day here in New Hampshire. Mom will do her usual thing, PlusOne will do his usual thing, and Dad is going to try out a pulled pork recipe. We can't wait to try it out. Enjoy your Sunday.

Meet Frosty

Meet Frosty, PlusOne's Dragon painting for art class. One of his class mates suggested Frosty as a joke but PlusOne liked it. All mom could say about that to Dad was "he's your son!"

I'm just glad Frosty is a painting and not real. He looks pretty ferocious. And he looks like he could swallow me whole, not that mom would let him.

The Weekend Is Coming!!!

The weekend is coming! The weekend is coming! Yippie! Time to sleep and rest and for mom to plant my green beans. She started the broccoli already, but now she has to get her butt in gear and get my other favorite green vegetable planted!

Can't Wait For The Weekend

Mom can't wait for the weekend, so she do some of this to recover from her VERY stressful week. Mom actually NEEDS Lucky and I to snuggle up to her to take some of the stress away. You gotta admit, Lucky and I always find good positions to put ourselves in. I think this one is pretty fun.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom was VERY snarky when she came home last night. She had that stink eye look that I perfected in the photo above. Turns out certain people don't know how to read or follow instructions. So mom decided she was going back to her store to figure it out after a good night's sleep. That solves everything, doesn't it?

Back To The Grind

Mom has to go back to work today. Actually, she has to drive down to the other store and (hopefully) finish up their inventory and bar coding. She doesn't want to drive an hour to work any more. I can't say I blame her. So here's paws crossed that today is the last day. :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Today we celebrate moms! Those wonderful beings that we just can't live without. I wouldn't do well without mom and mom wouldn't do well without memere. So Happy Mother's Day be you a pug mommy, a human mommy, or a mother to pugs! :)

Mom Is

Just plain tired. She has been traveling to the other store all week to put bar code labels on all the 2400 pieces of inventory. Everything from area rugs to wall decor, lamps and sofas, throws and accessories. She is tired of standing ALL DAY LONG after driving an hour in the morning and hour in the afternoon (mom hates driving). Now she has to solve the puzzle of why she has over 200 labels left and where all those pieces went. sigh. I am SO glad I am a pampered pug.

So, it didn't rain Tuesday or Wednesday but it is really supposed to rain today. Goodbye my sunbeam.

I will see you after all the trees, grass, bushes and flowers get the rain they need to grow strong and tall and beautiful.

Tuesday, May 7, 2013


We are supposed to get rain today or tomorrow. That's okay. I am not going to complain. I don't have to go out in it (much) and we have had so many nice sunny days that a day of rain won't kill me (I hope).

But Rain also happens to be one of mom's favorite Beatles' song. So she thought she would share it with you. Enjoy.

Sooo Nice

It has been SOOOO nice this last week, mom is wondering if we have landed in the Twilight Zone. Either that, or we are going to have one heck of a nasty hot, hazy, humid summer. For the moment, I am going to enjoy every nice, sunny day I can. And if mom opens the door, then I claim the sunbeam as mine! All mine. Well, maybe I'll share with Lucky. Maybe.

Sunday, May 5, 2013

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Boy, I love sunbeams. It has been so nice this past week. Nice and warm and comfy and just plain wonderful. Ah, sunbeams, I think I am going to lie here all day and enjoy you.

A Rumor

I heard a rumor that in addition to these...

mom is going to plant this
and this

and this!

My garden is sure going to be yummy this year!

A Little Cooler

It is supposed to be cooler today than it has been all week (the 70's). I'm okay with that, as long as it's sunny. Lucky doesn't care either way. She's happy if it's raining, snowing or sunny. As you can tell by the photos, Lucky is pretty happy just to be.

I like more of a challenge, but then I AM a Devil Dog.

Typical Parent

Mom is a typical parent. My son is soooo handsome, blah blah blah. Except I think this time mom might be right. PlusOne is a handsome boy. And he has great taste in clothes. Black! NICE! lol
