Furry Friends Linky Par-tay!

Wow, as I wrap up my Sunday planning it suddenly occurred to me that most of us really only get one day off a week.  My Sunday goes like this (I'll bet yours looks similar), nap, planning until bedtime.

It was a looooooooooooooooooooooooong week.  I came home Friday and C-RaShEd on the couch.    And here it is time for Monday again!  It's going to be a GREAT week!  <----being perky and positive.

You know I have to join the Furry Friends Linky Party hosted by Sandy at Soaring Through Second.  Go check her out!  She is having a giveaway AND is going to donate money to her favorite rescue for every new follower she gets.  Awesome!  I can't miss the opportunity to show off my furry girl.

This is Bella (and no she was not named after that whiner from the Twilight Books---don't get me started on that lol).

Bella is a rescue golden that I got when my sweet golden, Sarah, crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  She was 4 when I got her and she is an absolute dream.  I will always get rescue dogs now.  She is so smart that she gets trained without me knowing it!  Like she figured out right away that when I take off my bra I'm not leaving again.  If I come home and don't take off my bra, she follows me around hoping that she's going to get to go bye-bye (and to sulk when she doesn't get to).

This is bedtime..see if you can figure out where I sleep lol!

I have learned so much from her but the big thing is that there is nothing that a treat, a snuggle, and a nap can't solve.  Haha, amen Bella!

I worked on lots of things today, but I'm not ready to share all yet.  I must test drive them in the classroom first.  Our reading story this week is Fishing Bears.  This non-fiction text is one of my favorites in our series.  I made this go with it.  The pic cut off part of the lines for some reason.  I really need a class to learn how to do all of this right!  I'm winging it!

Get it here if you want it!  Bears Map

Good night all!  Have a mah-vel-ous Monday!


  1. Bella is such a doll! It is amazing how they do catch on to our routines!

  2. Bella looks so sweet! My cats know when I come home and immediately put my pj's on that I am going to bed soon and they run and jump on my bed! (And . . . I have a secret confession . . . I can't believe it . . . but I actually almost did name my cat Jasmine after Bella from twilight 2 years ago . . but then I felt guilty for changing her name when she'd already had it for a year!)

  3. Aww, Bella looks so comfy on the bed. I have a higher bed and my dog can't/won't jump up on it. If he could he would though.

  4. Oh, your Bella is beautiful! Good thing you have a big bed -- ha ha!
    My dog, Max, recognizes my running gear. He gets very perky when I put on my capris.


  5. Bella is gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by Owl Things First I'm your newest follower. I love LOVE love your blog design and can have are!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do.

  6. Do you need a Cricut? I love mine. I got mine from ebay for about half of what I would have paid at Joann's! I get cartridges from there as well. I'm sometimes surprised by how cheap I'm able to get the cartridges for. I share and borrow from other teachers. I borrowed one from a friend never intending to get my own. I was surprised at how much I loved it. I make puppets, games, and cards. Check out my valentine cards for my kiddos...

  7. So cute! I believe in getting rescue dogs too-I love that bumper sticker that says "Who rescued who?". It's unbelievable to me how smart they can be. Mine knows the difference between when I put on my sneakers (which means a walk) and my dress shoes-which means leaving for work.


  8. I see Bella leaves you as much room as Gizmo leaves me!!! :) Smokey leaves me 1/2 of my pillow on a good night, usually I'm barely hanging on!!!! :)
