Rainy day hike, puppy lovin' and Thursday Teaser answer
Thankfully by the time we got to where we were going the rain passed for the most part. We start out by doing a 14 flight stair climb which is the bane of my lungs existence but the Mr trots along like it's nothing.
It was cold and I loved hiking through the woods that were just starting to be painted with Fall's colors.
On the way back the Mr spied two deer on the trail.
They were skittish but let us get close enough to snap this pic and watch them eat for a few minutes. It boggles my mind that some people kill these beautiful creatures for sport. 3/4 of my family being amongst them. Boo. Look at those sweet faces...
We were marveling at this
The night before I was looking at videos on YouTube of Toy Fox Terriers. Both of my dogs were TFT's and I was missing our girl something awful. (I can't believe it's been 5 years without her.) We were both craving the smell of puppy breath and warm pup, sweet kisses and a wee snuggle. We stopped by a pet store and lo and behold, they actually had a TFT! Is he not adorable?
Thankfully he was rambunctious and that doesn't appeal to our impatient sides so we weren't tempted to get him. (Well that and we only own girls. No "red rockets" in this house. For those who don't know that term it's when the boy dog's weenie comes out to play. Gross)
We got home and I made dinner.
BBQ salmon over carrot and spinach polenta with a side of brussels. No bacon able to be fit in but that'll be rectified tonight.
For the Thursday Teaser, I got a lot of guesses from an aerial view of the Hawaiian Islands to grout to paint spatter.
So what is it?
Our bedroom TV...
...after Pottery Barn's oil rod air freshener thingy got pushed up against it and MELTED the plastic on the TV!!! That's right people, if you use the rod diffuser from anywhere, make sure it's nowhere near plastic or well anything if you can help it. (Honestly, it doesn't work that well anyway) So consider that my consumer tip of the day. Thanks for playing along though! :-)
Got any plans for the weekend?
