just things

I don't really want to spend a lot of time thinking about what to write on my blog today so will just write some things that are "out there."

First, I've been nominated for the Rockin Girl Award by my daughter, Tracy! Me, Rockin??? Maybe a few years ago I was rockin a little more than today. Some days I just feel like I need a rockin chair.... Blog awards are fun; they certainly make us feel special. I nominate Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage and A Pink Bee at Fairiebees because I never get tired of their creative ideas.

My husband and I run Doggy Day Care four days a week. Not really.... but it seems we always have more dogs than our own little Sadie on any given day. Maybe it's our big, fenced yard. Maybe it's the cookies.... Maybe it's just that we love them. Whatever, dogs LOVE coming here! We watch Kona, my son's dog, four days a week because she didn't take kindly to moving out a year ago.... If left to her own devices during the day when Bucky and Michelle are working, she chews up the door. So they have to bring her over here. And I don't blame her for loving our place. We have the big, fenced yard to run in and low windows to look out of and a comfy couch that is all hers. It's truly a great place for dogs. And now with Tracy out of town and Adam working, we have Porter. He loves it here too, loves our Sadie. He's still a young pup; about a year old but is doing really well. This was the scene a few minutes ago. Honestly, I didn't drug them or beat them! It was just nap time! Sadie was sleeping on the couch (her picture didn't turn out; too dark). My hubby is fishing with Ray today and Timber (Ray's extremely large malamute) wanted so badly to stay and play at Doggy Day Care that Ray had to literally shove his big butt out the door to get him to leave. It was pretty funny. Like I said, dogs love it here. Go figure.

This is Monkey Bread I made this morning. I love it and it's so simple to make. Here's the recipe:

4 small or 2 large refrigerated buttermilk biscuits. Mix 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. Cut each biscuit in fourths and roll each piece in sugar mixture. Place in a well-greased bundt pan. Mix 1 cube margarine (melted), 3/4 cup brown sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Pour butter mixture over biscuits. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
