The Saturday Six

1. By far one of the best moments of the week! I squealed with joy when I first laid eyes on him! And luckily, I was deemed just small enough to ride him.

His name is Tony The Pony.

I couldn't stop grinning the entire time :D It was like Christmas came early!

Thanks to my barn friend Jenn for taking the awesome pictures!

2.  I have been on the lookout for fun culinary-themed prints to hang in our future kitchen. This one takes the cake.......or rather mushroom!

3.  Australian Cattle Dog puppies are adorable! Definitely want to own one in the future.

4.  Snow covered villages in the Alps. This is what I picture the Harry Potter village of Hogsmeade to look like, magical and inviting at the same time.

5.  ...And speaking of Harry Potter, my darling sister Anna and I decided early in October that this Halloween we are going to relive J. K. Rowling's famous tales by watching the films and making some of our own magical treats.  On the menu.....Cauldron Cakes, Butterbeer, Pumpkin Juice, and Hagrid's Rock Cakes!

6.  Finally.....things are on the up and up!  My background check passed and I received my final job offer from the VA Hospital of Cincinnati on Wednesday! Woohoo for government employment!

Love Letters II

See the pyramids around the Nile
Watch the sun rise
From the tropic isle
Just remember darling
All the while
You belong to me
See the market place
In old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember
When a dream appears
You belong to me

And I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too

Fly the ocean
In a silver plane
See the jungle
When it's wet with rain
Just remember till
You're home again
You belong to me
(Lyrics of You Belong To Me)

Love Letters

It's hard when you are separated from a loved one, especially your husband. 

Zachary is in Missouri for the next 5 months completing his MP BOLC  and I am still in Cincinnati working and waiting.  While he is there we will only be able to see each other every few weekends. The rest of the time we will have to resort to blowing kisses over skype and typing romantic letters via yahoo messenger.

Here is the amorous conversation we had just this evening:

Zachary Vance: hi
Zachary Vance: i love you and miss you a lot

bethany: i love and miss you too
Zachary Vance: i named my worms on my worm team and two of them are Kipper and Bethany
Zachary Vance: Bethany didn't make it
Zachary Vance: .....

bethany: guess that doesn't bode well for me
Zachary Vance: worms don't do well in water

bethany: no they swell up and get soggy
Zachary Vance: lol which is what bethany worm did 

bethany: eww
bethany: but in reality i am a very good swimmer
Zachary Vance: not if you have no legs
Zachary Vance: and you wear a camo hat and aviators
Zachary Vance: lol

bethany: yeah those would weigh me down significantly
Zachary Vance: haha i wish you were here to play with me

bethany: i don't want to play games where i swell up and die.
Zachary Vance: haha
Zachary Vance: you don't actually swell up you blow up

bethany: in water?
Zachary Vance: yea lol

bethany: what makes you blow up in water?
Zachary Vance: you run out of health and BOOM!

bethany: that is completely illogical
Zachary Vance: its ok the british created it
Zachary Vance: so it must be well cultured

bethany: like yogurt?

Creepy, right?
(FYI, Zach was playing Worms the video game)
