How I Spent My Day...LOTS of pictures

First off I went to Walmart and picked up a few essentials, then came home and went down to the park for a walk n play with the dogs, well they were doing some work there, so we came home and spent some time in the backyard:
Zoey, my chihuahua in her carry bag, it straps onto my chest so she can go for walks with us.

Shellie LOVES tennis balls, notice the dirt progression, she kept putting it in her water then it would end up in the dirt.

EWWW Dirty!
While we were outside, I decided to take advantage of the good weather and weed a little (anyone who knows me knows this is a MAJOR undertaking for me, as I hate weeds, bugs, and am allergic to a lot of plants/trees/weeds), the part behind the fence is going to be Shellie's potty spot in our backyard we are just waiting for the grass to grow, as our backyard is mostly deck with dirt/flowers around the perimeter. Right now we have Lilacs and Tulips in our yard, both are pale purple in color (purple is my favorite color--no we didn't plant these).

Then I came inside, did some dishes, organized our tupperware cupboard which was a MAJOR undertaking, here's the finished result:

I made a healthy mixture of 'food' for the dogs to entice Shellie to eat better. It consists of 1# of hamburger, 1 grilled chicken breast, 1 salmon patty, 2 cups brown rice, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 4 hardboiled eggs, 3 cups mixed veggies all were ground in a food processor and all were cooked, Munchie the kitty is the supervisor, and Shellie was Quality you can tell she LOVED it! I only give like 1/4 cup per feeding to Shellie and then maybe 2 teaspoons to the chihuahuas mixed with their dry food per feeding. I separate it out into storage containers freeze some, and keep 1 in the fridge.

I also did about 4 loads of laundry, cleaned a little in the kitchen, mixed up the dogs weekly foods, since they are on supplements and such and to save time I portion out their am/pm feedings for each day add the powdered supplements and put them in rubbermaid type containers...BIG time saver! I do this about 1x a week. Yah my babies are spoiled. I also went for a 45 minute walk with my dog, Shellie, while listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone on my Zen player, I'm almost finished with it, should finish it tomorrow. YEAH! I've watched all the movies and have listened to them before, just re-listening.

Your babies are so sweet! My neighborhood is swarming with little chiuahuahs running around the streets in packs. They crack me up cause they seem to think they are big pitbulls roaming with their homies and if you even look at them they will bark at you like they are gonna eat you. Freakin little dogs dont even know how little they are! *laugh* your yard is beautiful! I love the flowers. what a busy day you had! fun fun.
