Seriously, where is this summer rushing? I am entering panic mode.

Maybe because our puppy grew so much in a week that it feels like a month. Maybe because I grew a little too. Or perhaps because we went sledding yesterday on Mt Baker and even if you are wearing shorts, snow will remind you quickly that winter shall return soon! Are you feeling like summer is coming to an end too soon?

This week we are peaking into each other’s shopping carts. I do not shop at all ( unless it can be ordered on Amazon, from the comfort of my home) but hubby does all the grocery shopping and claims he loves it too. So this list is all him. Again. He is starting to demand an assistant editor in chief of my blog position. Should I promote him?

Next week’s topic comes from Christine : 10 PHOTOS OF LIFE WITH KIDS. And for all you not wanting to share pictures of your children, don’t panic. Furry ones, spouses acting like ones, neighbor’s annoying ones or celebrity ones… Anything goes!

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. Hearts
2. Liver
3. Tongue
4. Kidneys
5. Carrots
6. Apples
7. Dental sticks
8. Pig ears
9. Salmon oil
10. Biscuits

( In case you are wondering, this is what it takes to feed two Newfoundlands and spoil a horse )

Hello friends, how’s life treating you?

We are having a week of our lives. Our family has increased by one. Our new puppy Bruce arrived on Wednesday from our friend Debra in Yorkshire. He is so utterly lovely, just like Max. And as I post this we are on our way to pick up Sophie, an exchange student that will vacation with us for next three weeks. How awesome is that? And just when you thought life cannot get any better for me: POW! My husband wrote the listicle for me! 10 LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE OUR FAMILY AWESOME. I am a lucky gal…
