Happy Day After St Patrick’s Day

Did you all celebrate yesterday?  We did.  No corn beef and cabbage for us though.  We had our regular food.

HH is celebrating today by relaxing. It was a busy week launching her new blog: The Helpful Blogger.  (Don’t worry, she’ll still post here and we will too.)

be kind  :  be the change  :  be the healthiest version of yourself

The Helpful Blogger is a food/health blog about nutrition, weight management, food, plant-based diets, and all things that will make you feel good and feel young.

Lou has been doing lots of studying and has lots to share.  So please go over and take a look.  She even put a sign-up form at the bottom of the page over there, so you can sign up to be notified by email when she posts.  There are two ways to sign up…  RSS means you will receive an email when she posts, and RSS and Announcements means you will receive an email when she posts as well as announcements when she has special news, such as give-aways, etc.  We’re going to follow The Helpful Blogger. We hope you will too.

Now on to the important stuff… A Sunday selfie of us.  It may look like we’re fighting in this one, but we are just gently tapping  each other  (MOL)! We are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog.

Have a great day everybuddy…

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Hoping You’re Warm

So many people are having horrible weather this week we thought we’d try to send a little sunshine your way.  The other day it was a bit chilly here, then I remembered what cold weather really is.  Hope it warms up for all you folks north of us.

We’re participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog.  Please join in.

Yes, I know that I’m wearing my toy. I like it that way.


Have a great day…..

Easy Like Sunday


It’s not cold here. I’m just wearing this in solidarity with those in the NorthEast…. Hope you are all okay!

Good Morning…. Knuckles is all hunkered down. It’s very windy here, so he thinks it’s cold too… Not so. Thank goodness.

I’ve been working on a new project. Some of you know that I have been studying everything I can get my hands on about nutrition, plant-based diets, motivation, fitness etc. Never too late to turn over a healthy leaf, right?

Well… of course, since I’m looking up all this info, I thought I’d make a website and put it out there to make it easier for others who are vegans, vegetarians or just interested in learning a bit about nutrition. So, the website is almost ready. I’ll be launching it on March 16, and I hope all of you will come over see it and follow it. I’ll put a notice out when it’s ready.

We, of course, are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop with the photo above. The hop is put on by The Cat on My Head blog. Join in if you feel like it.

Have a great day.

No Painting Today…

No painting today… yes, sadly, no painting to show you today. In fact, I’m about 5 days behind now in completing paintings for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.  Yikes… So, what happened?  I am always so type A about these challenges, right?

Well, the truth is I had a little crisis of confidence… Nothing too major. I just realized that I’ve always painted portraits of the faces of animals.  Animals with actual legs are just giving me a fit and I’m not into showing artwork that just doesn’t cut it.

So,  tomorrow, I’ll start painting whatever strikes my fancy and will save posting animal portraits for when they actual look like the animal, and “ACTUALLY look  like the animal” means that they look as if they could walk on the legs I provide them!!

But, here I am posting this wonderful selfie of Knuckles as we, of course, are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by the Cat On My Head blog.

Have a great day.

hugs,  Bugsy, Knuckles and Lou

Day 4: 30 Paintings in 30 Days… Lamb… maybe?

Good Morning.. This is day 4 of the painting challenge and this little guy was a real challenge.  I hope when you look at this, you see a lamb.  If not, that’s okay too.  Got up early this morning to finish this little painting.

We are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog.  Have a great day.  Here’s our selfie…
