It has been a busy few weeks for me. Unpacking, putting the house together bit by bit and and another week long visit back to California for work. The whole time I was in California I missed my dogs, my husband, my kitty and my new home fiercely. We finally got the wood burning stove installed (right in time for a crazy heat wave). But when you find the exact stove you want used for nearly half the price you don't turn your back on that kind of gift. So here is our beautiful new stove that won't likely see any use for a bit. One of the first photos I took of the stove was with the flash because I wanted to capture the blue green color. The dogs did not care for the flash and it gave Diesel demon eyes so I turned the flash off for the pics above. But I have to share the one flash photo because Kahlua's tongue. lol In addition to the stove we found a frog in our hot tub. We actually relocated the little frog into a nearby stream. And she came back!!! Argh!!! Not sure how to keep this little frog away. I understand frogs are dangerous for dogs and my hot tub is not going to be a great place for her once they come service it. But she just won't stay away. We had a bunch of dandelions pop up in the yard. And while I find it hard to believe the dogs have never seen a dandelion they sure act like that is the case. First there was curiosity. But after sniffing the dandelion Diesel became wary. And then he decided it was a threat. And once it was determined that this dandelion was super dangerous he went into guard dog mode.
