Susan P.'s Profile
I love water but for added nutrition a fresh veggie/fruit juice is great.
I had to work all weekend. Super short staffed. Today was really busy. Tomorrow I will only work a part day.
Haven't seen the grandkids for a few days, but will have all three for a few days while their mom goes to a conference. My son has to leave for work early so they will stay with me. I'll rest up for that.
I need an early bedtime, so goodnight everyone.

I will do some kind things. I will definitely thank my daughter for working all day even though she was sick! It was a very busy day in both stores and I know she and I both worked hard all day. I am getting sick too (again!!!) and doing everything I can think of to fight it off. A regular Saturday employee was off all day. I will probably not get anything done at home tonight. I feel like I used up all my energy.
This photo was on of the best surprises of our mini vacation last Sunday. We took a scenic detour and were stopped by a small herd of elk. It was raining but they were just hanging out in the road. When they finally wandered off the passed by the car may 3-4 feet away. The dogs bark so they ran past quickly. They are growing back their antlers. I believe they are more docile during this time. We thought it is pretty cool.
Thanks Kaye for the encouragement. You are kind!
Have a lovely evening!
I’m careful about not paying added fees, especially on something I don’t use!
Yesterday my daughter went home from work sick. Hope she’s feeling better tomorrow because we have another employee missing as she gets training for a part time internship at the wildlife care center. Guess I’ll see what happens by morning.
It's been a busy week with lots of kid time...Waylon represents well, how I feel! We do have a lot of fun. Today was so nice and summery that we spent most of it in the backyard. We had a major tea party, Belle dressed as Belle, and the boys enjoyed it too. We set up the tinkerbell tent on the deck, and there was lots of running around with the dogs. Great day, and I will also enjoy my quiet evening alone and a good nights sleep.
Thanks so much for the encouragement Eibhlin, Sue and Latifah. Blessings to you all!
Teaching Waylon how to play checkers on our trip...
I usually just eat leftovers...they don’t need much, other than warming up. I usually have a whole chicken that that then becomes other meals. I make chicken broth which becomes soup. I also freeze the broth into cubes which I use in my green smoothies every day. What’s left of the bones and chicken bits, gets cooked up one last time with sweet potatoes and any other leftovers, and I serve it to my dogs with their meals. There’s not a bit of waste. A chicken and a crockpot goes a long way in this house.
It’s 3 am and I just got up to let the puppy out. All three grandkids are here and in my bed. It’s pretty crowded...and now that I’ve gotten up, there may be no way to get back in! Brody used to sleep in his play ‘n pack, but he want to snuggle with the rest of us. It’s really time for a king sized bed. Lol.
Much thanks to Marianne, Sue and Eibhlin for the encouragement. I barely made it...thanks friends!
Belle sitting like a mermaid. ♥
Home again and filled with sweet memories. It was a great little trip. It’s good to be home, but I sure loved the sounds of the surf outside the door. We will go back to the lovely little house by the ocean.
I value my sleep. It is the time I can rejuvenate from a busy life. I need a good night ha sleep tonight because tomorrow night I will have all three kids overnight and all day Thursday. I don’t get my best sleep when they are here but it’s worth it.

Photo is from this mornings walk down to the beach. We started out the day with a long walk with the dogs on the beach then back for a hot tub. It's been a great trip. The house is lovely and we have had all our meals here. On the trip up, we were stopped in the middle of the road by a small herd of elk. The finally passed by our car, maybe five feet away...it was pretty cool for all of us. Today we went to an aquarium and the kids got to pet sharks, and hold a shark egg. We could feel the baby move inside the egg. Tonight it was a raucous game of kids charades. We will head home tomorrow. The vacation with kids and dogs has been a success. We will do it again!
I will do my challenge tomorrow. Right now I am ready to nod off...goodnight all!
I usually take my water plain, but I’ve got lemon or cucumber in the house so I’ll use one of of those.
Belle woke up at 6 am and said “today is the day”. Yes we are taking our mini vacation. Earlier in the week they were forecasting sunshine for Sunday and Monday but now they’ve changed it to heavy rains. We will let the weather dictate our plans a bit...but we are prepared with raincoats and rubber boots!
Big smiles to everyone!
Photo of my happy little lion! I decided I'd better get to daily challenge before I missed it again. Today will be a busy day at work. My daughter and I will be taking the next two days off work and taking my two oldest grandkids to Brookings, on the southern Oregon coast. This little lion will stay home with his mama and papa. We will have a lot more freedom without a two year old. Tonight the bigger kids will come spend the night and daughter Alex will pick us up in the morning. We are taking two dogs with us, but my friend will come and stay at my house with the remaining four dogs and my cat. I'm very grateful to Marissa for house and dog sitting for me!
This will be the first time Alex and I have both been away from the businesses in years and the first time with my current employees. It will be fine, yet it's hard not to worry. I am certainly looking forward to a fun little getaway.
Have a beautiful day everyone!
