Prairie Fun

Yesterday I headed out to Lync's breeders house and we took all the dogs for a run and then a swim in the river, it was great fun and the dogs were so content afterwards.  We will have to do it more often,

Some pictures from the day......

Memorial Necklace

This is the necklace that my sister in law had made from Joannes finger print.  After Joanne passed away we took the prints in some moulding clay to save for this purpose.  The lady lives in Thunder Bay that makes them.  It turned out so nice I ordered one for myself. 
I am grateful to my sister Debra for having the presence of mind at such a difficult time to get the moulds of her finger done.  I am anxious to have mine and have a piece of my sister to cherish forever.

Happy Friday

Where have all the bloggers gone?? Seems like no one blogs anymore, guess people are busy living their lives and such.  I blog mostly as a diary to have that record of what has gone on in my life.  Right now nothing is going on, I am totally and completely bored, I am however looking for a job. I think if I could just work 3 times a week it would be so good for me, at this point I'd even take full time.  Some days I am so bored I feel crazy. 

I have had my first interview to volunteer at our local hospital.  I will be glad when all the criteria is met and I can start, it takes about 6 weeks before everything is said and done though. I even have to update my vaccines.  I have no proof of getting them when I was young so I have to have them again.  I am hoping for office work for my volunteering shifts, that way I can also get some experience in that department. 
I applied at PetSmart the other day, they are looking for groomers.  I thought I had put my grooming days behind me but because of my increased boredom it is back on the able.  I have applied there before for other positions and never heard from them, I am wondering if it is my age???

Anyway that's about it for this Friday, have a good weekend everyone !

Well Meaning Neighbour?

On Friday I got a visit from the local Animal Welfare.  Apparently one of my neighbours called concerned as my dogs were barking, they wanted to make sure I was ok.  While this was nice of them to be concerned it has turned out to be a pain in the ass!  I don't know who called .  I am not sure when they heard the dogs barking.  I think it was when the young girl came to take Lync for his jog, Kort and Ash bark like crazy as they are blocked off from getting to the door.  The officer was super nice thankfully.  I wish people would just realize that sometimes dogs bark, they are dogs after all and can't be silent all the time.  I have been working on keeping the dogs quiet but it is hard, especially with the Collies.  They bark all the time.  Anyway, I hope they don't call again!

7 weeks Wheat Free

Day 1

Day 58
It's been approx. 7 weeks since I've been wheat free, I have had the odd cheat , having rice for instance, but no bread or any other grains.  My most exciting day was when I found out I could actually have ice cream!  I also can have the full fat variety too, when eating wheat free you are encouraged to have fat in your diet, butter for instance.  Of course it doesn't mean I can go out and eat a bunch of fattening products, it just means I can eat full fat in things like butter, ice cream, yogurt etc,  I have found adding these things has helped with my hunger cravings too!

The picture above was taken this morning, it is the first time in 7 weeks I have noticed a difference in my face, I can see less of a double chin from Day 1 !  So good for me!  It has actually not been as hard as I thought it would be, I don't miss bread, but I do miss pizza!!! So, once every few months or so I am going to reward myself and actually have pizza, I could make wheat free pizza crust but I want the real thing :)
