Journal to Healthier Living – Week 5

Welcome my friends.  I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living.  It’s a step in the right direction for sure.  I hope you come along for the ride.  Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share.  Hope you enjoy.  Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤


Week of 02/04-02/10/2018 – Week 5

“Dear Journal – I had intentions of having a perfect week this week with all of my circles completed.  It didn’t happen.  Six days out of seven I’m taking and doing a high five to myself.  Even God rested one day. I have to work out something I couldn’t do the rest of my life – not a quick fix.  If I take one or two days off, good for me.  I love my Apple i-Watch.  It gets me up/going and reminds me to do such.  However, it also brings out the OCD in me and being perfect.  I have to find an equal balance.”

Dear Journal – I broke down and found a pair of jeans that actually fit and didn’t seem like a family had moved out of them.  So from a size 26 to now a size 22.  And I actually bought my first ever button up shirt.  I have *never* worn button up shirts for obvious reasons.  With my breast size they way the were, button up shirts did not stay buttoned up.  My shirts were a 3XL and now I’m down to 1XL.  Small changes but it’s working this plan of mine.  I keep on walking.  Who knows what this summer will bring.”


This week walked: 12.54

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  44.18

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  541.06

  small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤


Update on my Air Fryer.  Let me introduce you to Elite – my air fryer.  Fits nicely on the counter and has little suction cups to keep it stable.  One of the meals we prepared this week was steak and waffle fries – both done in the air fryer.  The steaks came out awesome.  We cooked two this size at one time around 5 minutes.  Next time, I will take the time down a bit for more our liking.  The waffle fries cooked 4 minutes and came out perfect!  They were crunchy and awesome!!

My Journal is Up…. Again

Dear Journal

Friends – mine and Houdini’s journal is back up and running again.  What?  You didn’t know it was down because you haven’t been visiting?  No way!

You can check out our journal here or by clicking on the link to the right of my blog titled Journal of Bacon and Houdini.  Our journal is about the behind the scenes of our life here at the Hotel Thompson.  Our humans don’t read it because well… that would be an invasion of privacy, right?  So we talk about everything there – everything!

We hope that you enjoy it and leave us messages about what you think.  You never know what we will be discussing 🙂

Love, Bacon and Houdini

Paw Time with Houdini

Barks!  Well friends there was a lot going on here at the Hotel Thompson this week.  Let me run them down for you –

First – mom weighed in last weekend.  She is down a whopping 12 pounds!  She weighs in again tomorrow.  I’m hoping that the scales are still going in the right direction for her – DOWN.  Isn’t that awesome?  And she hasn’t lost her temper and beat dad up for some chocolate yet.  That’s a lot in itself – barks!

Second – I have my monthly groomers appointment tomorrow.  I’m excited on one paw but upset on the other paw.  You see, mom wants me to be all pretty and everything – that’s a given.  But she also wants me pretty because next weekend is the dreaded yearly shots.  Can you believe it’s been a year already?  You know what the vets visit means?  I better get extra treats because I’m going to be violated.  That’s what that means. Pouts.

Third – Bacon has been really pounding his keyboard on his laptop this month in getting his 31 Days of Spook out.  We all hope that you are really enjoying his blog postings.  He has worked hard on them.  The other night – he even scared himself.  It was hilarious!  And I’m not sure if you have noticed, but me and the pig have a journal on line now that we are keeping.  Thanks to our good friends Easy and his Staff, they got us started here.  We hope that you visit it and read about the inside makings at the Hotel Thompson.

And lastly, I got in trouble this week here at the Hotel Thompson.  Can you believe that?  Me in trouble?  You see, I was sleeping with mommy on her chaise.  Mouse Girl climbed up on daddy and wanted some loving.  Let’s just say it didn’t go well from there.  But that Bacon – he videotaped it all.  Busted I was!  Hope you enjoy the video.  I guess mom was right to put my t-shirt on that day that said, “It’s all about ME!”

Well that’s all for me my friends – yawns – I hope you had a wonderful week as well.  Happy weekend!

Bashful is Back Home – YAY!

20131211-105628.jpg Bashful made it back to the Hotel Thompson from Australia!  

We all stayed up really late last night talking about his travels and misadventures.  OMP (oh my pig)!  He had a blast down under.  And like Las Vegas, some things that happened in Australia stay in Australia if you know what I mean – winks winks.

You’re not going to accept that, are you?  You want the juicy details of his wicked time with Bimby while making his short silent movie Rockadile Dundee.  I’m sorry.

I can’t tell you any of the juicy details.  Bashful said that a gentlerock does not talk about his ladies.  aaaww – I raised that little pebble right!

.

The little international rolling stone came home with some great treasures of his time spent with his host family.  The above left handed picture is Bashful in his suit that he wore to the wedding. What a handsome little guy!  He now refers to that suit as his 007 Rock Bond outfit.  What a riot!  He told me late last night that he wore his suit out one night when he took Bimby out for a date – 🙂

The picture to the right is of Bashful and his Australian outback hat.  What a looker!  And you see that item behind him?  That is a hand painted boomerang from Australia that came home with him.  I’ve already caught him throwing it around the house.  We’ve all learned how to duck really fast with that thing flying about.  And never fear about his cross eyed look in the picture.  I think he was slightly inebriated from the long flight home.  You know, they’ll serve anyone a drink these days in the happy air above.  I guess there is no ‘under age’ in the sky.

20131211-105649.jpg

This picture to the left is of the other goodies that Bashful came home with that was in his luggage.  Stickers of all different things – Koala bears, snakes and Kangaroos.  Bashful told me that I could have some of them to put in our bedroom – I can’t wait to decorate my board.

And you know, they didn’t forget mom either.  See that fluffy pen in the picture?  It’s a Mickey Mouse pen!  It lights up when you write with it.  Mommy is in love with that pen.  I do believe she took it to the worky place so she can use/look at it every day.

.

Fozziemom and company was even so nice to send the purr things some treats.  Trust me, those little vultures jumped on that bag like it was crack!

20131211-105657.jpgAnd talking about crack – snorts.  See that can to the left beside the Koala pouch, Bashful is hooked on that stuff!  Mom/dad tried some last night and gave me a small bite.  OMP (oh my pig!).  It is GOOD!  No wonder that little Bashful couldn’t stay out of it.  It’s peppermint glory.

And you’re probably wondering about that Koala pouch.  It is the cutest little thing that zips up.  There was something amazing in that little pouch.  I’m getting too ahead of myself so you’ll have to wait for what it was. I promise to tell you.

.

20131211-105705.jpgAnd of course, we have to show a picture of the intellectual Bashful with his glasses on and sporting his hat.  Can you believe he went to bed last night wearing that?  And yes, he used his specks when he was reading to us out loud about his adventures in his travel log.

Can you believe that we also had a slide show of his side trip to Sydney?  Oh gracious – it was a hoot.  He visited so many places while down under.  I think we will be hearing about his tales for some time to come.

But, we are talking about the international rolling stone – my Bashful.  He will be home for a couple of more days and then he is off to his next host family and his next adventure.  Where will it be?  Only me and the next host family will know.

.

20131211-105724.jpgBut before he hops that plane, we had to take some family pictures of the “Rock Clan”.  There they all are on their sofa in their bedroom getting to know each other.

From left to right, they are:

Princess Coralena (from Hawaii), Mannie (from France), Virginia (from Virginia), Bashful and wait a minute – who is that?

.

20131211-105734.jpg

May I introduce you to the newest member of the Hotel Thompson.  This is Rockelle from Australia.  She is in this picture wearing Bashful’s Australian hat and wait – what is that?  She is siding up with Bashful and they are a twosome?!  Stop the presses – Bashful came home with a girlfriend?!  And they know how to grow them in Australia.  She has the cutest little accent and look at that purple eyeshadow.  She has so woo’ed the little guy.

And you’re probably wondering about how Princess Coralena must be feeling about this.  Well, let’s just say there’s going to be a rock fight about whose rock Bashful really is.  I can feel it in my bones.  But Bashful, he’s a young tyke.  He needs to experience life right now.  He can always settle down when he hangs up his travel boots, right?

So, to Fozziemom and clan – thank you so much for hosting a great time for the little fellow.  I know he had an awesome time and will always cherish his memories with you in Australia.  You were great.

But the bottom question remains – where will Bashful end up next?
