January/February Update

Yorkie and Chihuahua in party hats

I have not forgotten you all. Once I started to try to get back to blogging, I remembered one of the things that was frustrating me and was one of the contributing factors to me stopping, and that was my computer. It was getting to the point that I had to start it up hours before I was ready to do anything, and then the battery would not hold a charge, and I had to use an Ethernet cable for internet, because it would not stay connected to wifi….Anyway, I finally ordered a new one at the beginning of February and it’s due to arrive next week! I’m excited to have a working computer again!

I’ve been keeping busy with work most days, but trying to get some crafty time in on the weekends, or in the evening. I finished my second Diamond Painting and have started my third. The newest one is larger, so is going much slower, but I’m really enjoying it. Here is my progress on it so far.

I started trick training classes with Jasmine in January and we’ve been having a lot of fun. February 29th is our last class, but we may sign up again for that one because there are a few tricks she is just not getting yet, and the trainer asks what we want to learn, so there is the opportunity to add to Jasmine’s list of commands.

Truffles celebrated his 14th birthday on January 25th! I bought him a new bed, a stuffed toy to cuddle with, and some special treats. Here he is just a few minutes after I put his new bed and toy down for him. He doesn’t play with toys, but he does like to snuggle with them occasionally.

We also celebrated Jasmine’s first birthday on February 24th! I can hardly believe that it has been almost a year since she came into my life. We had a little celebration, where I tortured the dogs with party hats (they were thrilled as you can see from the pictures), and I made them some special pup cakes from this recipe. I made minis because these two are too small for full sized cupcakes, and we still have a bunch in the freezer, but they loved them! I’ll definitely make them again.

That’s it for now! I hope to be back more frequently once I have the new computer and get it up and running! Bye for now!

  1. Happy birthdays to the doggies! They are both looking very cute, despite the lack of enthusiasm for the party hats. 🙂 The diamond painting looks really cool (and relaxing). I hadn’t heard of it before, but my wife has been on the lookout for a new creative hobby, so I might buy her a kit for her birthday. I hope the new computer helps make your life easier. The miracles of technology are extremely frustrating when they don’t do what they’re meant to do. 😣

    1. The diamond painting is quite relaxing! If she takes it up, there are lots of groups on Facebook that are very helpful with tips on where to buy, what to look for in a DP, etc.
