November 17th, 2017

Hello everyone! How are you? Mom and I are all right. Mom didn’t hurt herself this week (yet, she says) at the not-retail job, so we’re considering that a big win! I’m writing this on Wednesday because we have to drive Mom’s sister and the nephew home tomorrow!
We have been listening to audio books on the drive to and from the not-retail job lately. Have any of you listened to any? Mom has had a few audio books of her favorite titles for a while, but she recently started to use Audible and some of the audio books that she bought with the corresponding ebook. I picked out a book called Uncommon Carriers by John McPhee. It is a book about the transportation industry. I picked it because I like trains and ships. Next up is a Dutch language learning audio book that we picked out on Hoopla. It has music and spoken word, so I don’t know how I feel about that! Do any of you have any sites you go to for audio books? We’re thinking of going to Audible, but Mom thinks we ought to stick to the library and Hoopla.

Since I can’t post without a picture of something, we’re going to end this post with a picture of Oliver! He is currently sleeping at the end of the bed. Mom says we ought to join him asleep! Have a great week!

Hello everyone! How are you? I am okay. Mom pinched her finger in her embroidery machine today, so we are going to keep this entry a bit short. Her finger is all wrapped up, and it doesn’t hurt so much any more. She says it’s mostly just some funny colors!

I went inside to Mom’s work for two days this week. I hide in her backpack. I have her ipad, and I play all day long. I also take naps. She says I am very good moral support, even just from her backpack.

With the new temporary position, Mom gets out of work at 2. It gives her some Graham time on every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. In this picture, Graham, Mom, and Oliver were discussing the playing attributes of doggy kibble. Graham thought that dropping it on the ground made a great noise, and Oliver thought that picking it up after Graham was fun. (Mom was in charge of making sure that Graham didn’t put all of the doggy kibble on the ground!) Graham’s sweatshirt has teddy bears on it!
I hope next week’s entry is a bit less eventful! Hope you all have a great week!

November 3rd, 2017

Hello everyone! Mom’s not-retail job gave her a fidget spinner for Halloween!  She left it in the car so we could play with it while we wait for her.
Mom recorded a short video for her instagram page. I wanted to share it here so I could have a nifty video for this entry, but Mom can’t figure out a way to make Live Writer embed it properly. She uploaded it to YouTube too. Sigh.
Otherwise, things have been pretty quiet. We didn’t do anything for Halloween, which disappointed me some. Did any of you do anything for Halloween? We live out in the country—well, in a more rural area, and our driveway is pretty long. We haven’t had trick-or-treaters in a very long time. Mom says there aren’t any sidewalks to walk on, so it’s not very safe to come down our road. (There’s also a subdivision on the other side of the road. Mom says people probably go there.)

Since I couldn’t figure out a way to upload the video, here is a picture of Oliver instead! (Pictures of Oliver make Mom happy!) Talk to you next week!

Hello everyone! How are you? I’m okay. Mom changed departments at her not-retail job. She is back in embroidery. She doesn’t get to come outside on her lunch break any more. (Because it is only fifteen minutes instead of an half hour!) I miss the extra time with her. She does get out earlier though, which is kind of nice.

It was rather cold and rainy today. (This is what it looks like at 5:30 in the morning when Mom is waiting to go into work.) Mom says that in January, we will think that these temperatures are warm. (I know this happens every year!) For those of our friends who are entering into fall, has it gotten colder where you live? (Mom explained to me that not everyone’s going into fall—some people are going into spring!)

Otherwise, things have been pretty quiet around here. Mom bought some more rement and books. She says that she wants to buy me some new clothes, but hasn’t gone to the right store lately. We spent Wednesday with Graham. He loves to walk, so we walk around the property. Oliver likes it too!
More next week! Hope you all have a great day!

Hello everyone! How are you? Mom and I are going to work on my blog entry and her family tree until her headache goes away.

Things have been pretty quite around here. The weather has been nice, so we have been spending a lot of time sitting outside on the porch with Oliver and Graham. It was almost 70 degrees Fahrenheit today! It’s supposed to get a little colder next week though. There won’t be as much wandering around outside for Graham and Mom when it’s only 50 degrees.
Are you looking forward to Halloween? I love all the colors! I also like the black cats! I don’t think they’re scary at all. Are you going to dress up for Halloween? This year maybe Graham will go trick-or-treating and I can go with!
I hope you have a great week!

October 13th, 2017

Hello, everyone! How are you? I am writing this on Thursday—and I totally forgot that it was going to be Friday the 13th today! I wish we had something superstitious to talk about! (Sometimes, Mom is not a lot of fun—she thinks superstitions are silly. I think they’re harmless!)
We are watching Bob Ross now. Mom’s a bit obsessed, and I’m all for making Mom happy. She found magnets at Five Below on Wednesday. Who would’ve thought there would be Bob Ross magnets?!

I’m currently trying to convince Mom that since she’s watched all these Bob Ross shows that she ought to try to paint. She says that she probably won’t be any good at it—and I say that if Bob Ross says you can, you ought to try! What do you all think?
Talk to you next week!

Hello everyone! How are you? I’m okay. Mom is pretty tired, so I’m afraid this will be kind of short this week. She’s the typist—I don’t want to be up all night typing this letter by letter! (I can type, but it’s definitely a long process!)

Mom recently signed up for a genealogy website called Geni. It’s a world family tree. You can figure out how you’re related to famous and historical people. Mom is distantly related to Charles Darwin, David Bowie, and a gentleman who served in King Henry the VIII’s court (he got beheaded!). Mom and I would love to know if any of you were on Geni, and we could be connected!
I hope you’re all having a great day! Talk to you soon!
