I Think I Can

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was one of those days that you would just as soon forget.  Actually, the beginning of the day wasn’t that bad, but the afternoon was outright horrible and even after I left work, I just couldn’t seem to regain my footing.  Mr. Taleteller drove me to work and came back to pick me up.  […]

A Soggy Glimmer Of Hope

by Houndstooth on

I have mentioned that this has been a winter of discontent, not just for me, but a bit for the dogs, too.  When the weather is too dangerous to go out together most weekends, it’s not much fun.  The groundhog didn’t give us much hope, either, prognosticating another six weeks of winter.  After weeks of […]

Stuck In The Attic With You

Celebrating The Fun

by Houndstooth on

Yesterday was Flattery’s seventh birthday, a fact that I find incredibly hard to believe.  Actually, I completely believe it was her birthday, but I just cannot wrap my head around the idea that she’s seven years old.  It seems like just yesterday that we brought a two and a half year old wide-eyed wild child […]
