Dog Sitting and Conference Prep

It’s been a different kind of busy week this week. My sister and her family, as well as our parents are on vacation this week. They asked Sean to dogsit. Since they’ve moved closer to where we live, he opted to just go over in the morning, then for a few hours each evening and then come back home to sleep. They are social dogs and need human interaction.

Dog sitting ~ Lifeofjoy.meMichael went over with him last weekend. While they were gone, I decided that I could go over in the mornings, after my breakfast, and deal with them and stay for a few hours. I’m not really an animal person but . . . they are good dogs.

They definitely know the sounds of a camera.

First we let Kipper out of her enclosed area and let her and Belle outside. Then we put them up so that we can let my parents’ dog, Hutch out. Although Belle and Hutch are liter mates, they need to be separated.

Hutch's Turn ~ Lifeofjoy.meWe give Hutch some people time. Let him out and give him treats.

People time for Hutch ~ Lifeofjoy.meKip and Belle get some lovin’ too, even while being penned up. :)

Dogs ~ Lifeofjoy.meI’m not sure which one this is . . . Hutch or Belle.

Comfy ~ Lifeofjoy.meAfter a bit, we put Hutch back in his area and let Belle and Kipper back out for their people time.

Belle the Ham ~ Lifeofjoy.meShe usually ends up at my feet under the table.

Belle at my feet ~ Lifeofjoy.meBefore we leave, we try to run them around a bit, since we know Macie usually runs around with them.

Play Time ~ Lifeofjoy.me Play Time ~ Lifeofjoy.meI usually throw Belle’s toy for a bit. She plays fetch. I’m not used to large dogs, so this week has been an experience for me. ;) They are all lovable though.

I’ve also been trying to keep my sister’s mums alive.

Mums ~ Lifeofjoy.meThe good thing about mums is that once they are planted, they will come back. Mine have multiplied. They bloom in the spring and generally die off during the heat of the summer but bloom again when the temperature drops out of the 90’s. :)

Mums ~ Lifeofjoy.meThose are my mums on the back right. I started with two pots of brown mums a few years ago and it has multiplied that much. I hope to get a better picture soon, minus the weeds.


It’s been a bit cooler! Hallelujah! It feels like fall. I am glad. These make me happy.

Orange Lights ~ Lifeofjoy.meI know it is a bit blurry but the point is, I have orange lights up in my kitchen and it gives me holiday feels (as my daughter would say).

I especially like my dishwasher magnet! I’m so happy to have several different holiday themed ones. I took the hummingbird one down and put up this one. It’s new . . . I think I got it for my birthday.

Fall Decor ~ Lifeofjoy.meThis just makes me happy! I have a cornucopia for November and Snowmen for December. :) My real sunflowers outside are way beyond looking this good. The heads are all dried up now and ready for harvesting. I’ll save some of the seeds for planting next year and some for eating, either for us or for the birds.

Conference starts at our church Sunday and I’ve got some preparations to make. I’m working in the kitchen and am happy to make some low carb egg muffins/omelets. It will be nice to have something instead of the heavy complex carbs in the bagels and muffins. I may make some keto bagels one day.

They are really good about attempting to provide some healthy breakfast items with apples, oranges, bananas, and yogurt. The problem is that the yogurt has sugar and the fruit has carbs that some cannot eat. Thankfully they have allowed me to buy some stevia sweetened yogurt too. They really do try to meet the needs of the people.

Well, I’ve got a lot to do, so I’ll run for now.

Until next time, God bless,

Michele ºÜº

  1. Awwww thanks so much for taking such good care of our doggies :). I know you are not a dog person which is one reason I have not asked you to dog sit ;). But thank you for doing it selflessly . Much love to you and Tiffers for all the time you put in. And Big D and Sean too!
