08.02.12 ~ Sometimes I like to lay on the floor with a big ol' pillow and watch TV. (Although I'm rethinking that after the HUGE GIGANTIC spider I killed in the family room last night!) My dog thinks that when I hit the floor it's his prime opportunity to lay in the recliner. Well, this particular night I propped the pillow on the bottom of the recliner and he flopped his head over the edge and laid it right on top of mine. I had my phone in my pocket and I just couldn't resist.
When I got up, this is how he stayed. I kept waiting for gravity to take over, but he managed to stay in the chair til I had to force him out to go pee.
08.06.12 ~ Phil had Monday off and we went down the road a couple miles to check out Round Lake. It's right next to Lacamas Lake and there are lots of trails for hiking. We've been hiking at Lacamas Lake several times, but this was our first time to hike Round Lake. As it turns out, it's a bit more difficult of a hike. Lots of uphill climbs and a small waterfall (ahhhh. . . ) a little off the main trail. On this one you actually hike all the way around Round Lake. Lacamas is out and back on one side.
I'm doing this album "project life" style (ala Becky Higgins). I started out with some divided page protectors (WRMK) that I got with a coupon at Craft Warehouse and they were ok. Then in June I used some of my birthday money and got a nice big brown faux leather 3-ring album and finally got my hand on some of Becky's plastics. I've been waiting for those for a long time. (I got the Big Box of Photo Pocket Pages - Big Variety Pack 1, Design G pack, and a 6X12 pack, all available only on Amazon.) January (the month of the dog complete with dog-themed papers) is almost done, and has been for a while, and because I can never quite finish one thing before starting another, I've been working on February. I don't have many pictures
my board on pinterest. I've been pinning ideas like a madwoman. Probably should've been spending that time actually working on my pages, but I digress.
