So just WHAT did she do??


I tried so hard to get a picture of my dog.  She's so dark that every place I put her was too dark for me to get it.  So here is a very good rendition of her from the net ^

I have had Pomeranian doggies most of the time since I was in my late 20's.  My favorites have always been the small black ones.  My first was a black male we named Sparkle Plenty, his eyes were so sparlky that the name just fit.  Shortly after Spark died, I got another black Pom named Teddy Bear.  He died 6 years ago.  That broke my heart, but we were missionaries in a children's home so we decided to wait a while.  My Precious is an unpapered little doll and I spoil her like crazy.  We also have Coco Bean, a brown Pommy.  He is untrained and eats everything in sight, mostly paper but he will eat the sofa as well.  He sleeps outside with Sammy our Greyhound and Kessa, a very small and furry rescue dog.  She's 13 years old.

We've been keeping Precious inside because Rob wants to spoil me.  We put her outside with the others several times a day to go potty and play with them.  She wouldn't stay out for any time at all, so we've been keeping her inside.  We figured we would find her little poops everywhere.  We haven't.  Not anywhere!  So yesterday . . .

I went in to clean the cat box and found that . . . out little doggy is BOX TRAINED!!  Isn't that a gas?  I know that people have box-trained there small dogs, but I think the cat trained her

Blessings all around to you who read my life,

Belated, but . . .


I know ~ I'm a day late and a dollar short ~ but I wanted to wish you all a Happy and Blessed New Year.

I am truly at peace entering 2008.  We had a lot of trials and tribulations, but made it through last year with the help of the Lord.

Our daughter Andrea has gone to live with her sister Heather.  Because of my illnesses, I can't care for her properly.  It was a difficult decision, but the best for all of us.  She's completely happy there and loves the snow.  I am really at peace for the first time in several months.

I didn't make resolutions,  haven't for years.  I do have a goal for this year:  I want to stay at peace, leaving the past behind and trust the Lord to help me reach the goal.  He did help with the struggles of 2007. 

This will be short and sweet.  I want to thank the wonderful tag and graphics artists who have helped me/us to decorate our journals.  I know who they are, but I'm afraid that i would forget would forget one.  I respect and am in awe of your talents.

Love and prayers to all of my friends here,
