Pug Ride

The pugs took a trip in the new car for the first time today...the third row of seats fold down and is a perfect place for little puggies to stay! Their trip took them to a Pug Meetup at Sanford's Paw Park. Nice park - lots of shade :)

New Car!!!

I got a new car on Sunday :) Well, new to me anyhow - no longer do I have the economical and fuel efficient Prius (hybrid)...I officially own a polluting gas guzzling Ford Explorer. It was bitter sweet to trade my little car in but it was time for a larger vehicle. I love it.

Jax Jaguars - Week 7 & Films

The Jaguars played on Monday night this week against the Indianapolis Colts and lost :( But, Caleb and I did make the trip up to Jacksonville for the game and found some great tickets to the game. It is fun just to be in the stadium with all the energy and excitement of the game - there's always next week...Our record is now 4-2 for the season.

Today I went to a film showing by a long time family friend - Bryan Yokomi. His work is amazing. Check out his site...he's got several films on his site that you can view. The one we saw today was titled "One of Many." Below is the poster from the film I saw today. Check out his website to view the film (about 19 minutes long) and others:

New to me #2

My take on a few things I've found...

1. Fig Newtons, baked with 100% Whole Grain - this is a tasty twist on the original fig treat. I'm happy to report that they are still delicious, the 'whole grain' did not take away too much of the moistness from the cookie (as I've found some 'whole grain' products do). I'm not sure how the nutrition facts compare to the original fig cookie but the Whole Grain figs have 2g of fiber for every 2 cookies. Hooray for fiber! Rating: 7

2. Pfeffer-Nusse - (aka gingerbread cookies made by 'Old Germany') These things are delicious! But, you have to be in the mood for a soft ginger cookie...these do not have the 'snap' but are very soft and chewy. These are coated in a sugar glaze and I've noticed that it is very difficult for me to eat just one. In the words of Rachael Ray, "Yummo!" Rating: 10

Jax Jaguars - Week 6

Jaguars win again...although I'm unable to view most of the Jag games from the house...we have Bright House which doesn't allow for the Sunday Ticket (special program where you can view a specific team's games). So, I only get to watch the games that the networks deem will get the most viewers (unfortunately the Jags don't usually attract many viewers, unless their opponent does). Of course I do realize that I could probably venture out to a restaurant/bar that has the game on but there's something about lounging on the couch, snacking on food and watching your team on your television in your living room. BUT, next week we've got the Monday night game against the Colts - put it on your calendar to tune in and cheer for the Jaguars!

New to me

I love to try new food products that I find in the grocery store - my latest:

1. V-fusion - (V-8's new twist) I tried the banana-strawberry and pomogranite blueberry...both very tasty. Hard to tell there are vegetables in the juice with the fruit. Good flavors too... Rating: 8

2. Andes Mints - okay actually this is an old favorite that I haven't had in a long time - with Halloween around the corner, they now have Andes mints packaged for the holiday. They are a little larger than the original and have a "fall" picture on the mint, but as always, just the right bit of chocolate and just the right bit of mint. Rating: 10

Pug Meetup

In addition to the Knitting Meetup, I'm also a part of a Pug Meetup....we had a meetup last weekend but I forgot my camera so couldn't post pictures from that weekend (had to wait for others to post pictures and then I copied them). There were at least 30 pugs there...there's one shot here from when we tried to get a group picture - owner and pug.... it really did not work all that well, it's hard to keep so many pugs still for a group photo!!!!

Brantley, Emmett and Paris stayed near me some of the time...but they did go off on their own and play with some of the other puggies!

That's Brantley girl in my lap :)

Brantley girl still in my lap...and Paris getting an ear massage. Emmett is on the left, behind me.

This is an attempt to get a group photo.

Picture from the start of the Meetup...before most of the people came in from outside (it started raining after an hour or so).

Fall is here!!!!

Gotta love the fall - cooler weather and the ability to drive with the windows down and open the sliding doors in the house to let a breeze in. I finally broke down and bought some candy corns...yum!
