A Mouthful Of Squeaky Clean

The weather had turned mild by the time this morning had rolled around.  Outside first thing the "crunch, crunch, crunch" was no longer underfoot, with it more of a sloshing sound with the feeling of being sucked in.

"Morning coffee was spent being coaxed to play by a certain Bandit boy."  Please, please and PLEASE !!!"

Nothing out of the ordinary went on this morning.  With a few daily household chores finished up, I went on to seal and address the "Secret Sister" gift, along with another greeting card I was mailing off.

Not "out of the ordinary" but still a very exciting event, is that we are pleased to announce the possibility of ....

"... a new upcoming "Checkerboard Aussie" litter !  First time parents will be our Missy Mercedes and Buddy.  We are hoping it has been a perfect "match"."

Should the match be good, I will be anxious to see what "colours" will come of it.  I had been getting pretty worried at one time that this wasn't going to be happening, but hopefully I can set that aside now with a good possibility of more  "Puppy Love" yet to come !

Rob drove me downtown Wiarton where we stopped at the Canadian Dollar Store to pickup some gift bags, the Post Office, the Drug Store, then a last stop at the Foodland.  A quick trip downtown sure can eat up most of a morning that is for sure !

Yesterday when in Owen Sound I had picked up a few goodies for the Puppy Bags I make up that goes along with each "Checkerboard Aussie" puppy to its new "Forever Home".

"The bags I had picked up this morning, and put together this afternoon.  Three pink and one blue.  Too cute."

I had a couple of phone calls to make before heading North of the Checkerboard to Lion's Head for my 3:00 pm appointment with my Dentist.  I LOVE going to see my Dentist, Dr. Pat Durino.  He is one out of two of the best dentists I have yet to have in my lifetime.  After I had my appointment with Dr. Pat today I had myself "a mouthful of squeaky clean" teeth.  I LOVE going to get my teeth cleaned, never mind how much I enjoy the visiting time with Dr. Pat either.

I didn't arrive back home until at least 4:30 pm.  Rob was such a sweet guy having vacuumed up the floors for me while I had been gone.  I had to get the potatoes and cauliflower prepared and cooking to go along with the rest of our Dinner I had cooking in the Slow Cooker from this morning at 11:30 am.

"There is nothing quite as simple to make this this Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken.  It was so very good along with a creamy sauce to spoon over top."


I have to say since I had posted the photo of the two sized Pedigree Dog food bags and the price differences on Pedigree Canada's Facebook page yesterday there has been quite a bit of "action" in the way of comments.  The photos I posted can be found on my post of yesterday, HERE.

Somebody has to start "capping" some of these things, as I am scared to think where it is all going to end !!!

Honestly I am usually so frugal my husband and son have many times called me out and out "cheap".  I even felt a bit guilty on Rob and I spending $22.00 out on rare Chinese lunch out yesterday.  I am so frugal and thrifty most times, finding it a challenge to get ahead.  It is difficult to imagine how some other people are struggling to stay a float with rising costs.  Sorry I know I touched down on this yesterday, but it is starting to become a real "craw" in my throat.

Okay I have said my peace with rambling on again, hopefully for naught as sometimes it makes me feel better to do so, and I am certain that is one of the reasons I began this blog.  *Smile*.  On that note, I am off to do me up a sink full of awaiting dishes, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".


  1. Oh more puppies how wonderful ! I am cheap Papa is not he gets upset cause I wont spend anything on myself even for a treat so he gets it for me and then I ask can we afford it ? he says I never get myself anything true but I was raised on a farm and you only get what you need not what you want ! I am retired and am on a fixed income as Papa still works and say's we are good ya got to live and enjoy life women he say's lol ! Chicken looks good . Have a good evening !

  2. Yeah, I saw about the puppies on Facebook! So exciting!! Can't wait to see what colors they will be!

  3. Congrats on the upcoming litter!! Yoour gift bags for the forever families are so cute, what a great idea, I know the new families love that extra touch. I too am feed up with the prices going up, up, up and the pay keeps going down :(

  4. Hello Cindy,
    I have been having a good catch up reading many of your recent posts. You sure do have a lot of snow up there! My in laws live near Newmarket. They say it has been miserable lately. Maybe soon you will start to get a little sun and warmth, I hope so!
    I hear you about the smaller sizes and higher prices. I did notice that myself this past year. Thought I was imagining things at first! lol!
    Yay about the new puppies! You sure can hear your pure enjoyment about your dogs! I think that is fab!
    Your chicken recipe sounds delish! I will have to try, Thanks so much!

  5. Those coffee cozies are so cute! What a great idea to send the gift bags with the puppies. When we bought our English Bulldog they promised to send a couple of toys home with us that would be safe for him. Well, they did do a lot of things they said they would so we ended up stopping on the way home. He now has more toys than a lot of kids! He LOVES his toys:)

  6. When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the thought of a user
    in his/her mind that how a user can know it. Thus that's why this post is great. Thanks!

  7. Sometimes we all need the chance to rant!

    Looks like a spammer breached the blog....


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
