Don't look at me like that!

Look at that face!  {And this is nothing compared to when she wrinkles her forehead and looks all worried.} I can't resist it!

Now that I have that off my chest...

Dad and Jacob left for Nairobi at about 3am this morning,  so Jake can get some dental work done.  Hopefully they'll be back either tonight or tomorrow morning.

I'd like to thank Mum for sharing the link for my last post on facebook!  Since you all enjoyed it so much, I thought I'd give you a couple more quotes from when we did pilates next.
TV: "Make sure you engage your abdominals for this segment..."
Us: "This sure is a good neck exercise!"
TV: "...Now, rest with your head face-down on the mat..."
Me: "*bonk* I can't - that squishes my nose!"

I feel like I should inform you that we do spend some time working out when we work out.  

I need to come up with a halloween costume.  We're having the Gees over for a party, and everyone has to dress up!  Bwahaha, we'll see what everyone comes up with. 

Don't forget to go check out Cookie Monster for some new recipes!

Hi triceps, long time no see

Furlough was not kind to my muscles.  Not kind at all.  So a few days ago I said, "Mom, let's do pilates!".  It was going to be easy- like before, right?  We got the mats out, and ready-set-go!  It burned.  Apparently, after a couple months of almost no real physical activity, you lose some muscle.  *Arrrgh, my triceps!

As I'm in a heap on my mat, I contemplate my situation.  Surely someone will walk by and help me up sooner or later.  That, or I'll just lay here on my mat collecting dust until I'm no more.  Feebly, I call for help.  "Help.Whew, that was exhausting.  "Heeeeeelp!

With my arms feeling like jelly, and not even being able to lift my arm up to reach my water bottle, I make the comment, "Well, this makes me appreciate the shape we were in last time we did this!"

To top it all off, a savage beast takes advantage of my helpless state, and attacks my stomach.  

Me: "Panya, bleh, get offa me! *Tries to ward off her attack with a useless arm*
Panya: "Raaaawr!"
Me: "Heeelp, I'm being attacked!...Giant pink tongue, aaargh! Fiend!  Flea-bitten mongrel!  Back, back I say!"

How I survived is anybody's guess.  As well as I how I got up.  

The next day I think, "Hmm, that wasn't so bad, let's do it again!

Hello fall!

It's not exactly autumn where I am, but it is where most of you reading this are, so that being said, I decided it was time to change the look of my blog for fall!

It was a beautiful day here today.  The sun was shining, I got alot done, Panya was running around in the yard, and I sewed one of these.  It turned out super cute!  I'll have to take a picture and post it.  

Panya is settling in wonderfully!  We finally let her be down together with the other dogs yesterday.  Axe, the female, had no problem at all - just wagged her tail, but wasn't that interested.  Don, the male, didn't exactly have a problem either...but let's just say he's smitten.  Don, honey, I don't think it's going to work out between you.  Over and out.  We need to take Panya to the vet this week to get her booster shots.  We don't want any little beasties anywhere!


Happy Tuesday!

Home again

A "we made it back safely" post is long overdue, but here it is.  *ahem*

Here we are in TZ again, safe and sound!  We've been getting back to normal, starting with cleaning the house up and getting everything back in order.  

I got my puppy.  Her name is Panya, and she's the cutest little thing!  She's almost exactly four months old.  I don't have any good pictures of her at the moment, but hopefully I will soon!

Hope y'all have had a wonderful week!

Goodbye, America

How strange that we're flying back to Africa tomorrow morning!  This has been a great furlough with lots of things that've happened.  Julia got married, we went to Polishing the Pulpit, visited lots of friends, and went to Roundhouse!  Roundhouse is definitely always the highlight of any visit.  It gives a tiny, little taste of what Heaven must be like one day.  

I don't have too much to say, just please pray that we have a safe journey!
