Time to update!!!!

A bit about me: I have several jobs, as the market where I live is very slow, like many are!! I first and foremost am a favorite job!! I have 3 grown kids..but they will always be my kids no matter how old they are!

I own a small custom bakery, which is across the street from my home. I specialize in wedding and celebration cakes and you can often see a picture of one posted on my blog!

Then comes the horse show announcing..I do this mostly for fun..I grew up with horses, my daughter showed for years and we had quarter horses, and I have one of those voices, so there you have it!!!

I had a knee replacement with major complications, and its been a long haul coming back. It will never be fully ok, but we do with what we are dealt, right?

I met my fall goal of 30 pounds, mostly by switching my food plan to keto. Never in a million years thought this carb addict would be able to do it, but doing it i am. So, new goal as of today is 26.8 pounds. Isnt that a marathon or something?? Would love to be there by July 1....

I won't give up!!!

I'm on the winter 5% team...GO FIRECRACKERS!!

    It may be unpopular opinion, and may make people upset (not a busy blog, so maybe not) but I think it needed to be said. I was thinking about dogs more and more and then I watched my son full body "hug" the cat. And while I want a dog that can physically handle that (another point against greyhounds), I also want a dog that it wont phase them. I may be a bit hasty in wanting a Rottie with kids this young. Perhaps when they are older and not as prone to body slams. Our local Newfie rescue feels awkward. They don't advertise any of the dogs, or show any pics. You fill out an application and they will decide if any of their dogs will fit. While I don't disagree with some selection process, that is so off from what I've seen/experienced. Anyway, I think we will go the route of visiting the shelter a time or two to see who is all there that may be a good fit. (Everyone wants a lab mix, right?! emoticon ) thanks for sharing difficult words.

    Congratulations on being in the spotlight (the link did not work-I had to go to your page a different way!) Have a great week!

    I saw a post you made in the Dog Lovers group, and had to come visit. I have a Newf too. She's our second. I adore giant dogs -- we've had two Newfs and two Great Pyrs. We also have curly coated retrievers.

    I've also done some horse show announcing. I volunteered with a group that pairs youth ages 9-18 with young mustangs for a 100-day training competition. I did the announcing at their final show and auction for several years until we moved.

    Anyway, nice to meet you!

    Sorry I missed your day in the spotlight yesterday!!! I hope you had an awesome day. I had a good laugh at the toilet paper reference for your deserted island! I never even thought about that but YES!!

    Thanks for all you do on all your teams. You are such an inspiration!

    Keep sparkling sister Firecracker!
