Donating Hair.

I had my hair cut today intending to donate the hair to Locks of Love... but after doing some research I've decided to donate it to "Children with Hairloss" instead. I thought it was only 8"inches in length, but turns out it's really 14"... awesome.

Corpus Christi Texas Trash

People, you really need to pick up after yourselves. THERE IS NO EXCUSE. There are trash receptacles EVERYWHERE. In 30 minutes I collected over 30lbs of trash.

-Plastic soda bottles
-Glass beer bottles
-pieces of sharp glass lodged in the sand
-plastic eating utensils
-fast food boxes & cups
-plastic bottle caps
-aluminum cans
-plastic bags:over 40 of these
-bicycle tires
-bicycle handbars
-wire hangers
-a tangled mess of red cable..........

I took my dog with me but I do clean up after him. Is it illegal to post pictures of people not cleaning up after their dogs? I captured a few photos today.

Neutered fake flowers crazy yo

We adopted 2 pups from a local animal shelter and tomorrow they return to get their stitches out. They got neutered last week. Titan has grown to love them and this morning I found all three of them sleeping together in the dog house. I was afraid Titan would be jealous and worried we would have trouble introducing them to each other but they have been great. I can't believe my little chocolate love is already 3 years old, and the two puppies are barely 4 months old, but man are they growing fast.

This weather is driving me crazy. My herb garden is not too happy with the colder weather. My basil looks so sad and the parsley is dying. The only thing that doesn't mind the colder temperature is the rosemary, which is cool because basil and rosemary are the two that I pick at the most. And I started a little cacti garden! It's my favorite. I bought a few from Home Depot and I love them even though they have FAKE flowers hot glued to the tops of them. I did buy a few that have real flowers and one has started to bloom bright pink - looks so pretty. I will take pics today.

One of our outdoor cats captured a gigantic mouse. I'm not even sure if it was a mouse, it looked more like a fat white hamster. I must have been somebody's pet. The other day there were about 20 hawks circling above. I'm guessing they were after the squirrels (and maybe the hamster/fat white mouse!?) I saw them chasing after a seagull, poor thing was screeching and trying it's best to get away but those hawks are CRAZY YO.

I love frozen apple juice. I want one of those COOL sno cone making machines. I love raspas.

And quit staring at my lunch...

Thank you for the compliment but I do mind when you touch my hair - I just don't say anything because I don't want to come across as bitchy.
I don't like it when complete strangers call me "Sweetheart, Darling, Honey, Sweetie."
I dislike it when a certain someone calls me "MOM" - I AM NOT A MOTHER.

This past weekend I told a friend that you reminded me of Oompa Loompa and this morning you were singing a song from Willy Wonka ... I thought that was awesome. You are so annoying.

Baby blanket # 2 - Complete.

I'll have to charge my batteries to take a picture, but I finally finished the baby blanket for my coworker! Felt bad because his baby was born a week ago and I wasn't able to finish it before the due date. I lost many hours of sleep over this so his baby better use it!
(I need to get a new digital camera, one that doesn't use rechargeable batteries!)

I have to get started on my friend Abril's scarf and hat... at my pace I'll have those done by Summer. HAHA.

I ordered one too many packages of Girl Scout Cookies. Never have liked the mint ones, but I have fallen in love with TAGALONGS.

New Year

2008 flew by for me and I am glad it's over. 2009 is going to be a great year! I made no resolutions, but I do have many things planned.

I hadn't baked anything since I started the new job (August). I was blessed with a few days off for the holidays and I decided to bake a large batch of cookies. Ended up with over 500 cookies :D I was in the kitchen for hours... and realized how much I miss baking. I have to make time for that. I'm mailing some cookies to my best friend. We're still not living in the same city, but we're finally in the same time zone AND in the same state! I bet she misses Hawaii ;)

On Christmas we went to see Marley and Me. I loved it! My sister thought it was stupid, she's a cat person. But I have her to thank for Titan. She's the one that brought me my "clearance puppy". Her friend was selling them and nobody wanted my dog. She said it was because he was born with a white patch on his chest and people preferred the other dogs. He was also the most energetic and ate all the food. My sister surprised me with him 2 years ago. I love that damn crazy dog. Don't know if I'd feel the same about the movie if I didn't have Titan though.
