Happy 4th!

Well I had the most traditional 4th of July! Ha! Well not really. It has been raining here for like 40 days and 40 nights so most 4th of July fun has been cancelled. There has been so much flooding I think I may build an ark.

I did not have to work today so it all started with me sleeping a teeny bit late, if you call 9:30 am late. Then I made some coffee and a southwestern omelet for breakfast (basically an omelet with reduced fat cheese and salsa). After I got all jacked up on coffee I cleaned the kitchen windows, fan blades in both bedrooms, and cleaned out my closet! Boy do I have a BUNCH of stuff to donate to ARC! Then I decided that I wanted to bake something. I did not want to make something for myself because I am trying to loose a little weight so my pants fit better :-), so I thought...why not bake something for little Millie, my dog? I found a great dog biscuit recipe and tried it out! This is what I ended up with, peanut butter dog treats!

I made some to look like hearts...

Then, the rest I made to look like real peanut butter cookies!

Millie loved them!

I also began to work on my Etsy shop. I have alot of fine tuning to do to vamp it up but it is none the less a start! I have been talking for months about getting this going so I thought if I don't start now I never will. I will be working pretty diligently on it this coming weekend. For some reason I am having a really hard time with my banner. I have my banner all ready to go, it just won't download on the Etsy sight so will have to work on it. However, I will be selling all kinds of fun things and eventually maybe even dog treats

Jeff wants to be a veterinarian. I have told him all along when he has his own practice I will have my own little dog barkary. I love dog bakeries! There is something about them that is so wonderful, maybe I am just an animal lover. But, I figure selling dog treats in my Etsy shop will be a good way to get my foot in the door to his vet practice (he is still in school so that will be a while). Who wouldn't want to buy their dog a treat after going to the vet? It is like getting a lolly pop after going to the doctor!

Well, I hope everyone had a happy 4th!

I think a animal clinic/bakery sounds like a fab idea!

And good plan to try your treats out on Etsy - promote yourself alot in the forums. Post links to your items so that folks can check them out : )
