I was afraid this would happen!

I become a different person when the warm weather hits.  I can't seem to keep myself inside!  Even as I write this I am sitting on my front porch!  So I will apologize now for the sketchy posting schedule! 

Speaking of the porch, you know what I hate about spring?  THE CLEANING!!

As many of you know, we have had 2 dogs the last few years.  One passed away recently.  The remaining dog, my lovely McKinley, spends a lot of time on the front porch.  She is an outside dog.  Crazy story, most of our family is allergic to dogs....but yet we own them!

This is McKinley:
I love this dog dearly, however she sheds like mad!!  You don't even have to touch her and you end up with white fur on you!

Anyway, back to the porch.  She spends most of her days on our front porch, especially in the winter time.  Now don't go calling animal control on me, she is a Siberian Husky....she was made for frigid temperatures.  She sleeps in our mud room at night, so she isn't that bad off!  So having a dog live on your front porch all winter can be a little messy (white fur everywhere!).  And it is hard to go out there and clean in 20 degree temperatures!

So that was my day yesterday......all afternoon.....hours of cleaning!  I do love my front porch.  It is enclosed, painted like the house, all beautiful windows that let the gorgeous sunshine in, a swing to enjoy...and the dog.

So now my front porch is lovely again, smells good, looks good, and still has a resident dog!! 

Oh well, I love her!


  1. Your dog is amazing. My girls want a dog so badly, but we are not quite ready for one in this house. I keep telling them that when they learn not to leave their dirty clothes in the middle of the living room, we will talk. :-)

  2. I will admit I do not miss the dog hair from Reba but I miss her sometimes!


I am so glad you that you stopped by today! What's on your mind?
