Photo Friday

I’ve got some photos to share with you today. It’s been one heck of a week!  (and much as I’d love to keep it a shocker, be aware there is a photo of a snake at the end of this post. If snakes scare you, be aware. It will be after the photo of a tire, so scroll carefully)

ham First up, HAM….yummy delicious ham!! I tried a new recipe to cook this ham and I have to say I don’t think I’ll ever cook a ham differently! It was so moist, flavorful and tender! What did I do? I cooked it in the crock pot! I’ve always baked hams in the oven, but I didn’t have the time to do that this week. I had a busy day, so I googled crock pot ham. I came across a blog post with rave reviews.  (you can find that blog post here.) So, I tried it! It was heaven!

flat pup

My silly puppy! Yes, he did snooze a few minutes draped across the steps like this. No, I don’t know how he thought that was comfortable! He’s quite the goofball sometimes!

wet gus

Here he is all wet after a bath. He is so sweet and gentle! He takes great baths, too! Now that he’s outgrown my big kitchen sink, we bathe him in the kids’ tub. His first bath, he just layed down in the water! He’s preparing to lose those sharp baby teeth, so he’s chewing a lot! He is pretty good about keeping it to dog toys, thank goodness! He is rough on the stuffed animal toys….we’re gonna have to invest in some tougher stuffies!


And, on Wednesday, this happened. It’s the first flat I’ve ever had out on the road. Yes, I hit a curb…but I know it was better than hitting the idiot that was over the yellow line and in my lane as I was turning left. I couldn’t see that he was on my side of the road until I was already in the turn. I was so glad to have roadside assistance. While I know how to change a tire, my strength isn’t what it used to be, so I was grateful to be able to call my insurance to send someone out! (Hubby was tied up with work.)

Snake photo is next…..don’t scroll past here if you don’t want to see it……




It’s not a big snake…..but it is a snake……



After the older boys brought the trashcans back up to the house from the curb, they rushed into the house saying there was a snake in the driveway! I went outside and did find a dead snake in the drive. It was a small snake. It was just over 12″ in length, but I didn’t know what kind of snake it was. While I doubted it was poisonous, I still wanted to check! I went and used my good friend google, and determined this was a brown snake. Real descriptive, huh? Just a common brown snake. And while I thought it might be a young snake, I found that this is an adult! They stay small – full grown at 12″. I think one of the neighborhood cats may have killed it.

Ok, so there is a short and sweet photo account of highlights from my week. How has your week been?
