This morning I awoke to a soft little whimper! Of course Savannah would not be loud while I am still sleeping….just enough voice to get my attention! What a sweet little lady she is!  So, as usual, I said, “Do you have to go out sweetie”, and  she patiently waited while I got up, put something warm on, got my slippers, then she pranced along with me to go outside! She always wakes ME up, as I don’t care if it’s 3:00 in the morning, I will never let her have to wait to go outside….how would you like it! (smile)

That pretty much sums up My Girl…she is the sweetest dog there is! Of course, you know the story about Savannah…My Girl was my Top Post for 2010! Isn’t that the cutest thing! It just goes to show that our sweet little furry pets ARE MAN’S BEST FRIEND (or women’s)!  I got these fun facts about my blog with an e-mail from WordPress this morning!

When I first thought of writing a blog, I thought, hmmm, well who will want to read my little tid bits of everyday simple life! After all, we are simple people! Nothing that out of the ordinary about our life! But, through all the blogs,  a bit of sunshine & happiness shined through, and isn’t that really what people need in their life?  And as of today, a whopping 1840 people have visited my blog! Pretty amazing if you ask me!

So, I thought I would share some more photos of My Girl, Savannah and give the Top Ten Facts about Savannah!

1) Everyone Loves Savannah! Yep, the mailwomen, the people at Starbucks, Great Grandma and Great PaPa, and one of her best buddies….Jaden

Jaden and Savannah snuggling at bedtime!

2) Savannah loves to enjoy the weather outside, cold or hot, it doesn’t matter, she just loves the outside! (Well as long as the snow doesn’t get between her toes….then she would much rather be in her fluffy bed!)

Even though today was cold, Savannah wanted to go outside and gaze into the pond!

3) Savannah loves to lay on the rug and soak up the sun in the window and gaze outside!

Looking out the patio window in the kitchen, one of her favorite places!


4) Loves to go camping too! Her favorite part….getting up late!

I think I'll lay here just a little bit longer!


5) Like to watch movies in the camper too! I think it was Lassie!  :o)

This is a great show!

6) Loves pillows! This pillow was originally mine! One of those great comfy body pillows! Well, it fell on the floor during the night while I was sleeping. When I woke up in the morning, she wasn’t sleeping in her normal bed, but in this new fluffy body pillow. Well, I didn’t have the heart to take it away from her, so this pillow is now a part of her pillow collection!

I'm going to pretend I don't see her, maybe she won't take this pillow away from me!


7) Just hanging around by my side! Wherever I go, she seems to follow! It’s so sweet!

8) Savannah was a great Therapy Dog! It’s a tough job for such a sensitive little girl! One day we visited a man who just suffered from a stroke, he started sobbing when we were visiting him. Savannah stood like a statue! After we left the room, she whimpered ever so softly to go outside! (no, barking allowed in the hospital) So, I brought her out, she got sick and we had to leave. All weekend, she was laying around the house sad! The next week, well she made someone’s day and she was happy! I wish I could have continued with the program,  it was very rewarding to brighten up a sick patients day, although difficult at the same time! I give nurses so much credit, such a tough job!

9) Just hanging out and soaking up the sun!

I don't care that it's cold out here! My New Year's resolution is to slow down a bit!


10) Just being pleasant and enjoying our company wherever we go!

Another camping photo!

I wish all of you could have a dog as sweet as Savannah! Enjoy our photos and maybe she’ll make Top Post of 2011!

PS We didn’t have a dog when we grew up! Maybe that’s why all of  enjoy our pets SO much! This is my sister Suzy’s dog Ruby Begonia! Isn’t she beautiful!

My Girl!

03 My Girl (Stereo) A happy little tune about My Girl!

My Girl, enjoying the porch and the flowers!

It’s a still, bright and warm morning here in Northern Illinois! This time of year things are a bit quiet in the perennial garden as the days have been quite hot! I was awakened by the sounds of the birds this morning! The two syllable voice of the bright red Cardinal is my most favorite eloquent speech from a bird! I must say, I think I am starting to get a little used to this change in my sleeping habits! I’m normally not an early bird, but must say, the mornings are glorious! (I never thought I would say that!)  So, I decided, no better time than now for me and Savannah to wander outside and checkout the morning!

So, as usual, Savannah is perky right away as she hears my footsteps on the floor! There is no coaxing or begging or even morning crankiness from My Girl, what a delight! She is just incredible. So, I thought it would be a nice little blog to share with all of you! When there are times I’m not quite feeling myself, I think that’s a perfect time to learn from my dog! Imagine if all of us lived like our dogs!

Oh how I love this! I can sit here all day long!

For instance, yesterday when I got home from work, I opened the patio door, and of course, there goes My Girl with me out the door….she didn’t even question the blazing heat! Nope, she danced out the door wagging her tail anxious to lay leisurely on the grass and gaze into still glassy pond. It was a perfect time to spruce her hair up a bit as I’m sure it’s pretty warm in that long fur coat that she wears! So, she enjoyed her hair being brushed and in between would get up to hug me as she likes to do! I wish everyone could have a Savannah of their own!

So, I decided, this bright and cheerful morning made me want to dress cool and cheerful for this warm sunny day! So, I grabbed a yellow and green striped top (all pretty sunshiny colors, my favorites), my favorite Peridot and Lemon Quartz earrings, a Peridot bracelet and a Peridot and Green Amethyst ring! My Girl, the sun, my pretty jewelry, I’m already feeling a bit perkier myself!

So, enjoy the happy little song, My Girl (Savannah) enjoying the morning porch and flowers and Today’s Blooms! (click on the photos to see it larger) And, when you need a break from all the warm sun and are taking a computer break, look at my Etsy shop! Inspired by my garden, I have been enjoying making some fine silver pieces! The mix of vintage looking fine silver and the perfect alluring gemstones, make a stunning piece of enduring jewelry! I really love them!

Well, it’s time to get rolling and hit the road soon! Enjoy your day….and take a lesson from My Girl and take time to smell the flowers!

Love and Peace….Linda
