Easy Microwave Sweet PotatoesI love sweet potatoes and instead of peeling them to bake or boil I just wash them, cut the ends off, stick with a knife and put them in the microwave for 10 minutes, check them and flip them over if needed.
Moving To A New State With PetsBefore we moved to another state, I had new dog tags made for all my dogs with our cell phone numbers and also my mother-in-law's phone number. I also contacted the microchip company where all our dogs and cats were registered and updated their files with our new address before the actual drive.
Squirt (Cat) and Emma (Dog)My 19 year old cat was asleep on a kitchen counter and I layed down on my back on the floor to take a picture of him hanging his head over the edge while he slept.
Adopted Feral KittensAt the time this picture was taken, we lived off a very busy highway. It was the norm to see animals that had been hit by cars and it always upset me.
Product Review: Voyager Solar Crank KA500 RadioAfter going without power for a week due to a tornado, I started researching hand-cranked radios. By the time I was able to get to any local stores all batteries had been sold out.
Morning ChipmunkEvery morning I put out wild bird seed for a few squirrels and birds that I've been feeding for awhile now, not to mention probably some of their offspring.
Hutch (Husky/Wolf Mix)This is Hutch a Siberian Husky and Wolf mix. He's not my dog, but he thinks he is. He's 6 years old and, until this past March, lived chained to a big tree across the street in a neighbor's back yard.
Squirt (Gray Cat)Squirt was my husband's cat when we met, so I'm guessing he's give or take around 16 years old. I'm more of a dog person, but Squirt thinks he's a dog. He started walking with me when we got our Parker, as a puppy, back in 1999.
In Memory Of Webster (Cat)Yesterday, when my husband and I returned home from work, we noticed our 16 year old cat was unable to stand and walk. I had noticed him limping for a few days, but he had always been one of those cats that spent his entire day jumping up and down.
Emmett (Great Dane)Emmett was born on April 5th, 2014 and I actually found him on craigslist. Turns out his breeder lived only 8 miles from where I lived and I was very fortunate to visit him every week, take pictures and see how much he had grown.
Use Dog Tag for Medical InformationI purchased a dog tag from PetSmart and on one side I have my name and phone number, on the other side I list O-POS / DIABETIC. It's attached to my key chain just in case of an emergency and can easily be seen.
Solar Lights for a Power OutageI live in northern Alabama, and after 150 some tornadoes recently touched down, I was without all utilities for 5 days. By the time my husband and I got out to buy some candles, batteries, and extra flashlights, everything was gone.
