Diggity Ding Dong

Hey dig this.  My mother-in-law gave me jeans last year and when I put them on today they were TOO BIG.  Even better, I have energy for chores.  That usually doesn't happen following a work day.  But wait, that's not all ... 

Who has her wedding band on?  If you guessed me, you win an A on your paper and a star on your forehead.

Meanwhile, here's today's hot drink.  I use various spices but for this morning, it's almond milk, homemade ginger juice, honey, organic cinnamon and organic brown sugar.  Served in a Halloween mug.  As all fall drinks should be.

But first, dig these Halloween bakes I made last year for the pups.  Just canned Blue dog food and flour.  Make a dough, roll it out, make the shapes, and bake.  That's it.

    1. You know, the smaller pants is fun, but I swear, the energy and not being in pain is MORE fun. Thanks.

    1. And a star on your forehead. Rayolla will be jealous, as he has no star on his forehead.

  6. When I first started losing weight, I could actually feel how much skinnier my fingers were. I was excited about putting the wedding band back on ... only to find out my wife had somehow lost it.

    1. Oh nooooo. Did you get it replaced yet? It is amazing how the bloated fingers go away. Even my ankles. Congrats on doing such a great job. Bet it feels great.

    1. The pups really do. Do you have pets?

    2. We have two cats and two ferrets. The ferrets are my daughter's, really, but I also provide care when she's not around. So they are attached to me. They are adorable and cuddly animals.

  11. does almond milk have real milk in it too, or just almonds?
    I have jeans of all sizes in my wardrobe... showing the fluctuations in my size :) And I never have the perfect jeans - always too small or too big..... :(

    1. No dairy. Just almonds, sometimes sugar or honey. When I make my own I like honey and vanilla. When I buy it, I get what's on sale.

  13. Love your mug! I just realized I am sorely lacking in Halloween themed mugs. Must get one next shopping trip.

    Also, those are some lucky pups you have there! :)
