The Divot Diary 10-21-13 {Plush Bedding}

Home Goods rocks, right?  I went in for pillows and came out with pillows and a plush pillow bed for Divot.  He loves it.  We have a U shaped couch in the family room.  I get one side, the hubby gets the other and Divot has the middle and that’s where his pillow bed is.

Happy Monday everyone!

Everyday Life 10-14-13

Happy Monday…..night!  I feel like I’ve been away forever.  The day job, the one that helps pay the bills, has been keeping me hopping.  I’ve completed a few projects here and there, but the pictures are still in the camera and still need to be processed.  I’m sharing the  everyday normal today.


The weather was dry this weekend so the hubby, the puppy and I were able to get for a few walks.  A week ago the leaves were just starting to change. Now, they look like a painters tray of oils.  I took these pics last year but I could of taken them now.

A little retail therapy doesn’t hurt anyone, right?   I just say Honey, lets go for an appetizer and a drink.  Then I say, Oh look, we’re right across from Home Goods!   I scored as they had  a great selection of pillows and I wanted needed  some to celebrate Fall .    You’ll have to check back later this week if your curious where I put them and what they look like now.

I did grab the Be Thankful pillow and toss it in the blanket basket in the family room.  My hubby still doesn’t get the “just for show” concept, but I keep explaining.

My hubby and I struggle every month trying to give Divot his flea pill.  Since were surrounded by a gulley and a golf course, there’s lot’s of insects and creepy crawlers.  And Divot loves to run an play.  He snubs his nose at us and refuses to eat when we try to give him his pill.  I just have to watch for him to yawn, then I throw it in his mouth.  He turned into a pouty puppy after he swallowed this months dose.

I was at the Dollar store the other day and look what I found…

Then I went to ACE to buy same spry primer so when I felt the mood to spray paint it would already be here.  They had a ton of colors and patterns so I need to load up the next time I’m there.

That’s it for me except for the normal clean the house, do the laundry, rake leaves from the yard, blah, blah, blah.  Where does the time go?  At the end of each day do you know what you did exactly or does it just fly by?

Enjoy your evening.  The Voice is on tonight so that’s where I’ll be.


The Divot Diary 8-12-13 {I’ve Got A Girlfriend}

Hi everyone!  How was your weekend?  We had sun, wind and rain, but lucky for us, the raindrops came at night.  The “big news” is Divot has a girlfriend!  My neighbor adopted a stray cat and named her Tucker and let me just say, he is smitten!  He follows her everywhere and I find it quite comical.

The Divot Diary 06-26-13 Low Tide

Our Northwest beaches have offered lots of opportunity for shore walking lately.  We’ve had several low tides around  minus 3.8.  Todays Divot Diary is pics from several weeks ago.

In the car, on the way to the beach.  Divot is on my lap.  Hubby is driving.  Divot knew where he was going.  He likes the beach.on the way too the beach

The Divot Diary 5-31-13 {Hide and Seek}

Happy Friday!  I think shorter weeks, those that have a holiday, are the hardest to get through.  I run like a crazy person cramming as much as I can into 4 days.  And I took Tuesday off as well so it’s extra zany!

Divot loves to sit on our front porch and watch for squirrels and crows.  When he finally sees one he barks and chases them away.  In todays Divot Diary, I think the crow got the best of him.  I’m titling this one Hide and Seek.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend.

The Divot Diary 04.28.13 Happy Birthday

It’s Sunday and Divot turned 3 this weekend which makes him 21 in dog years!  He’s growing up so fast.  Here he is at 7 weeks old compared to now.

It’s easy to get attached to your animals and Divot is certainly a part of this family.  Happy Birthday Divot!  We love you!

Yesterday was our  annual city garage sale and I was able to unload some unwanted items.   Tomorrow the city sponsors free pick-up today so I’ll be cleaning and tossing today.  It’s raining so its the perfect day for it!

Happy Sunday,


The Divot Diary 4.8.13 Hanging Out

Happy Monday.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Old Man Rain is  back so I was “forced” to shop, share appetizers and drinks with friends, and accomplish a few items on my To Do list.

Here’s some pictures I’ve taken over the last several weeks of Divot.  I’m titling this post, as evidenced by these pics, appropriately Hanging Out.

See what I mean?  And just so you know, Divot is getting a much needed hair cut this week.  Have a good Tuesday!


The Divot Diary 01.31.2013

Divot Diary Button

It’s been awhile since I shared some pics of the pup.  The last time was just before Christmas.  Divot has become really spoiled.  My hubby had rotor cup surgery December 7 and is out of work for a couple of months.  Divot has had someone by his side practically every minute of every day.  Add this to the endless rain we’ve had lately and the result is The Divot Diary for 1-31-2013.  Here’s a day in the life of one little puppy.
