Tuesday Tidbits

I've been AWOL from the blog.  Sometimes I go AWOL because there is absolutely nothing going on, and sometimes it's because I'm too busy to put together a post.  It's been more of the latter lately. 

I'm going to try and catch up on the blog this week, but no promises.  I started summer school last night.  I always seem to bite off more than I can chew, and this summer, I agreed to teach 2 classes.  I'm teaching a 6:00 and an 8:10 class, so I go for 4 hours a night, 4 nights a week, for the next 5 weeks.  It's really not that bad.  The worst part is that I don't get home until about 10:30.  By the time you play with the dog, get ready for bed, and read for a bit, it's 12:30.  Then getting up for court the next morning is not so fun!

Here are some random things I wanted to share today...

If you aren't following the Interior Department on Instagram, you are missing out.  Big Time.  They post lovely photos of the national parks, and I'm constantly updating my "Places to Visit" list thanks to their posts.  Check them out if you are on the Insta.  Their username is: usinterior
(P.S., if you want to follow me, my insta username is: legallyblondekf)
The weather here has been wonderful.  Cooler than average and rainy.  Though I wish we had gotten more rain, I really can't complain.  It was so cool, I was able to break my "I do not turn on my oven from June-August" rule and bake some cookies!
(p.s. the cookies were a pinterest find and I gave them a thumbs down)
Lola had to go to the vet last week to get her rabies shot.  My little gremlin is always going to be on her worst behavior in the waiting room!  The only thing I don't love about my vet's office (well other than the fact that it is located approx 150 miles from my house), is that they don't make appointments.  As a result, you sometimes have quite a wait, and with little miss "I'm the boss of this place", that can be like wrestling a bear the whole time.

The vet was really concerned about a few things, so I had to leave her for some additional testing to see if she was diabetic or had Cushings Disease.  Turns out she is just fine!  She is just drinking an excessive amount of water, and seems to have a fat butt (the odd fat distribution around her tail was one of the concerns).
My friend Abby has a garden.  I saw her a couple of weekends ago (more to come on that trip), and she gave me tomatoes from her garden.  I love having friends with gardens!  I made some yummy pico!
They were giving out samples and coupons for these frozen yogurt bars at Walmart the other day.  They are so good and only 90 calories!  I highly recommend trying them.

I have been wondering about those bars so good to know !! I had to have both Annie and Maisy tested for Cushings and both turned out negative. Glad to know she is ok :)
