I want to thank everyone for the nice comments and the emails regarding Howie. We are still waiting to hear the results of the biopsy. Howie had a great appetite up until Saturday when he became very picky. He decided he likes roasted chicken and will eat only I have been roasting chicken for him. SPOILED DOG! Other then his weird appetite he seems to be his old self just a little slower getting around.
On Thursday our old laptop finally crashed for good. So on Saturday we got a new one and had it all set up on Sunday thanks to Uncle John and Jenn! I was going through serious withdrawal issues not having my computer for a couple of days! But I am back online with a brand new laptop and I love it.

The other evening we had amazing sunset. I grabbed my camera and snap some pictures. It was so beautiful. After I finished taking the pictures I was walking back to the house when I saw the sunset reflected in our kitchen door!

I have more pictures to share BUT I can't get them uploaded from my camera to the laptop....I still have a lot to learn with this new computer!

I have a lot that I want to get accomplished this week. I have orders to work on for the Shop and I just ordered new stencils so I want to paint and stencil signs this week. AND I want to figure out how to get my pictures on the computer so that my blog isn't as boring as this post is! AND if you are in our neck of the woods PLEASE stop by The Brickhouse Craft Shop. We have been getting new things in almost weekly and the goodies don't last long in the Shop. The doll holding the pie with the oven mitts in a previous post lasted only a couple of days in the Shop. It has found a new home with our good friend, Danelle, who almost knocked down the door to the Shop to get to that doll after she saw it pictured on our blog! We love when Danelle and Ray visit our Shop...always so much fun talking and laughing with them! I told Danelle and I will tell all of you...if you see something on our blog and you want it..just let me me or email me and I will hold it for you at the Shop. I am sorry but I do not sell items from this blog so if you see something you like you HAVE to stop by The Brickhouse Craft Shop in Millersburg...we would love to meet you.

Have a wonderful week and please stop by the Porch again!

your porch is so pretty and welcoming! I hope you get pics up of your crafts soon - I love signs, I am rather addicted to them so I could probably find a few things to buy.. unfortunately I don't live close enough to come to your shop! I am glad Howie is doing fine - he's a lucky dog to get spoiled by you :)

All of our animals (ducks and cats) are spoiled and we wouldn't have it any other way. Hope Howie continues to eat, what happen to pretzels and pizza crust?

I'm keeping positive prayers and thoughts for you and Howie. I know exactly how you feel. My little Katie (a/k/a "The Ham" is having similar problems. Her liver is enlarged and they suspect CA. However at 13 years old, I don't want to put her through things she may not be able to handle at that age, so right now we are treating her with meds and special diet.
