Natural Balance

Sorry.  Really reaching for a post title this morning.  Don’t know why, but neither MJ nor I can seem to shake that morning fog!

July 2011 002Nichole sent a fabulous birthday box, and within was a cute bandana for Sis.  Ironically, it’s for the brand – but not the same formula – both girls are eating now.  I really like that color on the fur-girls, and they really like the food.  Gretchen has been on it for ages, but Sis just started the switch 10 days ago.  So far, so good but we won’t know for sure for maybe another 3 months or so.

Funny story…  Friday, while the girls were at work with me, a customer remarked that Sissy must like him because she kept winking at him.  I couldn’t decide if that was his gentle way of noting her missing eye or if he really thought she just winked non-stop.  She looks rather “zen” here, doesn’t she?

July 2011 009The ‘dana was FAR too big for Gretchen, but that didn’t stop her from sporting it as a halter dress.  Yes, funny wee one has a thing for the leaf blower.  See, she has a lizard problem.  She’d rather chase lizards that eat, I do believe, and a little newt likes to hide under the leaf blower, so…

I’m very fond of the tote Nichole sent me.  I love gingham, and the colors are just perfect for summer.  Inside there are three slip pockets on one side… one large in the center and two smaller ones flanking it.  It’s just the right size to drop my small crossbody within and still carry the girls’ medicine bag (a small cosmetic bag), my sunglasses and a few other little things.  You can find the “maker” at Seacostbaby on Etsy or facebook.  Sissy wasted no time wiping her slimy mouth on it, and a damp paper towel made it all better immediately, so we have a winner for the summer tote!

Thanks, Nic!!  I love it!

We had a very full weekend and I have a couple of food reports to share, but it’s taken me all morning (and then some) to get this done, so that will have to wait. 

How was your weekend?
