Venturing Out

It has been awhile since my first post, but I have had quite a bit on my plate. I am still trying to figure out this whole blogging thing.  It takes me forever to find exactly what I want to add and then it tells me I can't, so I have to try and figure it out again.  So please be patient with me as I stumble along.  I follow so many wonderful blogs and hope that someday mine will look as good as the ones that I read.  

I want this blog to be an extension of me and what I do.  I am currently planning a virtual card party for Operation Write Home and will be posting more on that in a couple of days.  I am also planning a card making party at our village hall in McCullom Lake.  I'll give you all the details in my next post.  So now you know what I am planning, but none of the details.  That's because I don't have all the details yet.

But for today, the sun is shining and the humidity is low and it is a beautiful day here. I hope you are all experiencing the same. I am going to visit my mom today and I think that I will take our dog Jack along for the ride. He loves car rides.

Here is Jack, waiting for the trash pickup.  He loves to bark and growl at the garbage truck when it rolls down the street.  I think he decided to just lay in wait for the truck.  But much to his dismay, I called him into the house long before the confrontation could take place.

Jack is our rescued Jack Russel Terrier mix and we love him dearly.  He was named after the dog in the Little House on the Prairie series, so no we didn't name him Jack because he was a JRT.  It is truly a coincidence.  We've had him for 2 years and he is now 3 years old.  He is full of energy and it makes me tired just watching him. 

That's it for now folks.  Have to run for now.  Be sure to check back for my posting about the Operation Write Home parties that I am hosting.

This is a work-in-progress.  Please be patient until I enter my first "actual" post.  I'm still trying to figure this whole blogging thing out!!!!

Thanks for your patience.
