Sat. 11.10.18 – On our afternoon walk, Sweet Pea stopped to enjoy the sunshine next to a pine cone. It was too picturesque…
Sun. 08.26.18 – One week and one day ago, Miss Sweet Pea, the small dog formerly known as Cindy Lou Who, joined Casa de Mobile Hanen as the Dog in Residence.
So far, so very delightful. Miss Pea is approximately 8 or so years old (6-8 according to Dr. Kali), in her previous life before rescue she lived outside in a backyard somewhere in SoCal. She now lives inside with multiple walks a day.
Just yesterday she realized that chipmunks were prey and got SUPER EXCITED at every chipmunk movement, smell, and burrow. Walks are extra more anticipated now…

Wed. 25 April, 2018.
When I was a young teen, I attended several sleep-overs where late at night some of the girls played the ‘parlour game’ Ouija.
Not me, as I was tucked into my sleeping bag trying to go to sleep. When they would encourage me to get up and join them, I would decline. One time I watched the first ten minutes of the proceedings but was considered a joykiller as I kept asking if it wasn’t their hands moving the game piece to get the answer they wanted.
I was sent back to my sleeping bag.
The second time this happened, I was in the state of nearly asleep when my friend Tiffany screamed, “Jenifer!! The Ouija board says you are going to die in your forties!”
“That’s nice, I am going to sleep.”
Fast forward to yesterday. My fiftieth birthday. As of today, I am officially completely out of my forties and am not going back.
Take that, Tiffany’s Ouija board!

Tues. 03.06.18 – The fabulous Ms. Belle has had a rough and tiring morning here at Camp Hanen!
She woke me up at 6:00am to go out to use the doggy potty, it was cold and windy while she minded her chores. From 6:30am to 8:00am, she carried on a heavy kiss bombardment and foot stepping/stamping campaign to get me to feed her breakfast before 8am.
After her hard won breakfast, she got up on the bed and promptly went back to sleep.
Fri. 02.24.17 – Yesterday my Mom and I took the dogs for a walk in the Meadow Creek Meadow and I took my Nikon D800 with a Nikon 70-200mm f/4 lens along for the walk. I am enjoying the reach of the 200mm with the D800’s larger sensor, as I am getting some fun bird photos. Here are a few photos of birds seen out in the wild doing their thing, as you can see the local hens are diligently patrolling their yard and house…
Sun 01.21.17 – I am currently visiting my Mom in Bishop, a small town in the high desert on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Rain was predicted today and the current storm had other opinions on the matter.
I am wildly excited as I love love love snow. It is so exotic! ;o)
