Our evening ritual

On most evenings, I work on my photos and then will do a blog post for the next day. We’re quite the exciting couple, my husband and I. And we wear this dog out during the daytime hours, I tell you.

Tonight, while sitting across the living room from George, I looked up and noticed this.

DSC_0071 copy 2

He was sound asleep, cuddling his alligator toy. And of course, it woke him slightly when I went over to capture some photos of it.

DSC_0070 copy 2

Dear mother, I am trying to sleep here. Can’t you see that?

DSC_0072 copy 2

Call me crazy, because I like sniffing his feet. I am a sick person, I know it.

DSC_0073 copy 2

I think I have woken him.

DSC_0076 copy 2

Yes, I’m quite sure he’s awake now. He gets ready to play really fast and the last thing we had been playing with was that alligator.

DSC_0087 copy 2

Good gracious me, I love this dog.

Thanks to all for cheering me on when my cardinal photo made Pioneer Woman’s Holiday Bokeh finalists. That was pretty darn exciting. Remember that lens that went wonky the other day? Well, maybe my prize winnings will go towards a new one. Just maybe.

I also actually sold several cardinal prints from my etsy site, too. And I’d like to welcome the new faces here as well as old my old friends who keep coming back, not just for the excitement and not just for the prizes, but because they’re in love with my dog.

I know who’s famous around here.

And I love having you stop by.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ And now, some questions for you: ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

1. Because it’s the near year, what’s something that’s better after the newness has worn off?

2. What dish do you always go back to get seconds (even when you know you shouldn’t)?

3. In 2009, who made you laugh the most?

4. What is one healthy food you really, really like?

5. On what date do you think 2010 will no longer feel like the ‘new’ year?

See you in the comment section, my friends . . .

Well, Kate...I know what you're saying about smelling his feet :) - My Happy dog, from once upon a time, always had (what I called) Frito Toes. They smelled like salty Frito's to me :) - now how's that for weird?! hahaha

George is such a wonderful dog, Kate...I can see his personality in his expressions. I'd love that little bugger right up and I know that energy you're talking about. Happy had it. She was part Border Collie...and it showed in the depth's of her heart. I loved her.

I don't know if you really want my answers to your questions but...here we go:

1. Mostly that my children aren't trying to stay awake until midnight :)

2. Oh, just one dish?! Are you kidding?! Must be that I'm such a marvelous cook that I tend to nibble for seconds at every meal...trying mostly for the veggies, but managing at least a spoonful (you know the large serving spoon) for one last bite before putting it all away. I'd have to say my favorite is the starchy dishes...and brocolli :)

3. My children are the ones who make me laugh (and grouch) the most.

4. Oh, I suppose I just answered this one in question 2. Brocolli, all the way baby.

5. Hmmm...that date will probably be around the time we receive our tax rebate :) - Feb/March'ish

Thanks for asking Kate...forgive me for not properly answering with the questions as part of the sentence :)

Astaryth said...

It made me happy to see your picture featured over there... I still think it should have got first prize!

1. Anything made out of leather (boots, saddles, coats...) is better once it is broken in and softer!

2. Rice Krispie treats ;)

3. Our new kitten. (and actually our dog because a lot of the laughter was at them playing together!)

4. Strawberries

5. I have to agree with the February 1st answer. It takes me about a month to get into the groove of writing the new year on stuff.

nancy in ks said...

1. Better after newness worn off: any new tech thing because once I've had it for awhile, I finally understand how to use it.

2. Always go back for seconds for pumpkin pie with real whipped cream.

3. My husband makes me laugh the most. He's hilarious.

4. I really do love oatmeal with raisins.

5. It will take me until March to feel used to twenty ten.

I wish I weren't allergic to dog hair. I would be so in love with one. George is gorgeous George.

Debra (a/k/a Doris, Mimi) said...

1. Because it’s the near year, what’s something that’s better after the newness has worn off?

2. What dish do you always go back to get seconds (even when you know you shouldn’t)?

3. In 2009, who made you laugh the most?
My husband

4. What is one healthy food you really, really like?
Watermelon

5. On what date do you think 2010 will no longer feel like the ‘new’ year?
I have to agree with February 1st

Congrats on your prize from PW. She is right - your photo belongs in a frame on the wall. I'm so glad I won this beauty! Thanks again, Kate :)

Hilary said...

Well, I have to concur, I also love the smell of my puppy's feet......I was so happy to hear you say that...now I know I am not alone....ha!!
ok...on to the quesions at hand.
1. A book is always better after the newness has worn off, and it opens on cue.
2. I can't believe you said mac and cheese, but that's it for me too...it is the ultimate comfort food in my opinion.
3. I think Tammy, my apprentice for a year, made me laugh the most....esp when she brought me things like the sign that said, "how about a nice hot cup of shut the ______ up"......oh, my she is a hoot.
4.salad, salad, salad.
5. probably February some time.

Did you make these questions up????
That's my question.

Julie Harward said...

I must admit, I have never smelled my dogs feet! They run through the horses area too much! That dog of yours that you share with all of us...yes, I do love him. The way he was looking up at you with those eyes..made me laugh! He has eyes that look into the soul, next to my dogs and a beautiful golden in the UK named Bella..I do love this dog!
1. Flannel Jammies
2. Pie (sour creme Lemon)
3. My grand children
4. About February
How's that sweet lady with so many questions?! I always look forward to your posts and I love to tell my husband about you and you do and your pic's...Come say hi :D

J.L.S. said...

I hope you keep your cardinal print in your Etsy store for a while because I really want a copy, but right now the hubs is in between jobs so we have to limit spending. Your George is absolutely precious. My pup always wakes up when I go to get the camera... it's like she has this sixth sense about it.

1. Because it’s the near year, what’s something that’s better after the newness has worn off? Shoes, definitely! There is nothing worse than breaking in a new pair of shoes.

2. What dish do you always go back to get seconds (even when you know you shouldn’t)? Pastas of all kind and bread... my weaknesses

3. In 2009, who made you laugh the most? My husband... my little puppy was a close second.

4. What is one healthy food you really, really like? green beans... I could eat a whole can of them by myself, easily (but only if they are made the right way)!

5. On what date do you think 2010 will no longer feel like the ‘new’ year? Oh man, it takes me a while... it will probably be close to March before I get used to it.

I'm so happy you did so well in PW's contest!

Deb said...

I'm not in the habit of smelling Dan's feet, I'll have to and let you know what they smell like.
Hope it's fritos and not something from the barn :)

Questions:
My new leather boots will fit better after the newness wears off, I hope.

Always have to have a second helping of Kitchen sink soup. No one can eat just one bowl!

Hubby made me laugh the most; my boys a close second :)

vegetables...any kind

Mid february or so...

Thanks for asking Kate - enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Country Girl said...

I love reading your answers. And I am really relieved that other people smell their dogs feet. Why is this, I wonder. I once had a dog whose feet smelled like brownies.

And if I had a word that rhymed with that, I'd have a nice little limerick.

In answer to the question about where the questions come from, I peruse the FridayFive.org site. They often have some great questions and I just choose the ones I'm interested in.

JackDaddy said...

The feet thing scares me... :)

I did.

2.Sadly, just about everything...
3. A friend who sends me jokes via the internet, some old, some new and some side splittingly funny. Or is it just me?

5. Yesterday!! I love 2010. It flows and it's easy to remember and I'm already right there.
Love that alligator. And George too - of course.

Kate, I always tell my granddaughter, "See you later, Alligator"! and I've been looking for a little stuffed alligator for her that wasn't scary or just plain lame. Where did George's alligator come from? Need to get one for Rileigh!!!!

Thanks, Jeanne

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

I feel the same way about my border collie.

TSannie said...

All I know is for two certain dogs, there's nothing better than a certain green alligator and pink bear.

Wouldn't that be nice if it were so easy for we humans?

Happy palindrome day, my friend!

Amy said...

Well, it was the dog who drew me to your blog in the first place, you got me there, but your photo and whimsical postings have kept me coming back...what the heck is it with the feet of dogs? PW says the same thing about her dog's feet...I need to smell my dogs feet..it's just never crossed my mind before.
Let's see if I remember the questions you asked:
1. I think jeans are best after they are worn in...
2. Anything pasta- homemade mac'n cheese would probably have me sitting on my back legs and drooling..
3. Probaby Stig..he cracks me up..
4. Spinach...baby spinach...oh and asparagus..oops...that was two...
5. Gosh I think I'm already over 2009- it's gone..I'm so in 2010...no problems!!
Have a super day!!

Country Girl said...

Peanut butter is healthy but only 2 tsp. per day. Or something like that!

JackDaddy . . . you funny.

Hi Kate

I really missed a lot in here during my christmas holiday. And congrats to you as one of the finalists in PW contest. Your photo is awesome, truly! My husband who is an eager bird photographer will be so exited by this photo when I show him this ;-)

Happy new year to you Kate.

Evening Light Writer said...

1) A new author that you've just stumbled upon. Oh sure there is the honeymoon phase where little shivers of joy go through you at every other word but when you find an author that becomes an old friend..that is much better.

2) Everytime I go to this little Mexican restaurant I always swear I'm not going back because it is so unhealthy but..I do..!


3) My sister makes me laugh so much, she says the most witty and amusing things.

4) any fresh salad I will gobble down very heartily.

5)When I finally remember to write 2010 on my checks which will probably be in July sometime.

Anonymous said...

1) A saddle or a pair of chaps when they become buttery soft...
2) Mexican food or garlic mashed potatoes...I cannot resist the temptation.
3) My husband always makes me laugh.
4) Any vegetable but I really love avocados and cherry tomatoes.
5) Sometime in the summer will no longer feel like the new year. Also my favorite time of the year.

And I love the way my dog, Benny's, feet smell too. I love to bury my face in his fur and tell him I love him. He always smells like the fresh country air and a little bit like hay...

Hope you have a great year.
Karen

I'm late weighing in, but hey, that's my modus operandi of late....

First off, you know I have a 'thing' for George and I love your photography. Even I feel slightly inadequate when I look at them.

I love smelling my animals' feet! Although, normally, I would never admit that in public. I used to love to smell a spot on my first rabbit's head, right between his ears. I called it his 'sweet spot' and I loved to bury my nose in his fur and breath his scent in. Small pleasures.

Okay, on to the questions:

1. Bluejeans.

2. Chinese food. Mostly a black bean sauce chow mein that I love.

3. My friend, Rob. Love that guy.

4. Fresh squeezed orange juice.

5. Today, January 4th, when my brief 4 day holiday is now over and my work-a-day routine.

Blessings,
Carolynn

1. Photos of weekend road trips used as my ever-changing desktop wallpaper.

2. Home-made cakes in cupcake or layered form with home-made fillings and frostings.

3. Tina Fey. And I like Sarah Palin, I admire her courage and strength, she's a pioneer woman, but I just disagree with some of her politics.

4. Fresh peaches.

5. Valentine's Day, 2010. Because then I'll remember previous Valentine's Days. And I'm already planning the decorations, candy to purchase and make, etc.
