Chef's Life

A few months ago, I was exploring on Apple TV and came across the best show, A Chef's Life.  It is no secret that I enjoy to cook.  I was completely enamored with Vivian from the first episode.  The funny thing is so was the Big Guy.  If you have access, give the show a watch.  We are so sad that we got through all the episodes and have wait for new releases.  We are also trying to figure out a way to get to Lenoir City.  Someday, we will get to Chef and a Farmer!

Office Move

The Big Guy started in a new position on Monday!  He was excited.  It is always stimulating to expand your horizons.  I helped him with some of the stuff.  He wanted to have it all in place.  That way he could focus on the new job.

His new office is actually an old work room.  The music is playing and he will move again before the music stops.  He got a desk on Monday and hung a few more pictures.  It is now his home away from home!

Dinner Out

We went to mass this evening and decided to go to dinner after.  We opted for a restaurant that is a bit higher end.  We had a lovely dinner.  Peanut was our photographer.  I thought he'd take the honors with lobster pizza, but I got the award.  I ordered the pasta special, a butternut ravioli with blackened shrimp.   I should have known.  When you order the special, you never know the cost.  Oh!  Well!  It was yummy.  I decided we won't eat out again until Pumpkin gets home.  I still feel guilty going out to a nice meal without him.  
Yep.  Had glasses on for the picture.  I wear them most when I knit, but I noticed my eyesight is not perfect in the romantic lighting.  The Big Guy and I were laughing about our eyes.

Gonna sleep in tomorrow, let it warm up and then take Buddy on a long walk.

We took advantage of having Veteran's Day out of school and went to the doctor's office.  We wanted to get Peanut checked out after the few "issues" while running cross country.  Turns out, all indicators point to his breathing.  He gets so far into the race and for whatever reason sort of starts to hyperventilate.  He has got to learn how to take deep breaths.  We will see how that helps.

It never fails.  They promptly call us back to the exam room and then we wait and wait.  Not the best selfie.  I was trying to anything except go bonkers!

Lap Dog?

Ninety-nine percent of the time, Buddy wanders off behind a chair, curls up and is dreaming in minutes.  The other evening, though, he decided he wanted to be a lap dog.  He is so funny.  He slinks one paw up and then the other and then the other and finally he is all the way up.  There is nothing sly about 65 pounds climbing up on your lap!  The good thing is that he doesn't normally want to cuddle for long.  As Pumpkins said, "He loves his pappa!"
I'm thinking he loves me most right now.  He is patiently waiting for his morning walk.  I gotta bundle up.  It is one of the coldest mornings yet this fall!

Veteran's Day 2014

Yesterday, Pumpkin went to a local elementary school (local to the Academy) to teach the children about flag folding.  Thought the saluting picture says it all on this Veteran's Day!

Swimming & Singing

CGA hosted a swim meet this past Saturday.  Look who was singing and swimming?

I love to see the cadets at attention for the national anthem.  Pumpkin said it sounded good.  Wish I could have been there to hear it!
