3 month old puppy

Zepher is now 3 months old. I had to take her to the vet last week to get another booster shot and the vet told me that he thinks she will be bigger than he told me last time I was there. Still uncertain how big she is going to be, but I was told medium, now it's looking like she's going to be a large dog. She's weighing in at 20 pounds compared to the 8 lbs she was a month ago. Here she is with her new collar. The markings on her back keep changing.

Play time with her best friend who's a year old Great Dane. She's the size of his head!

Nap time with the toys.

Starting A Garden

You can find many starter kits like this one at your local garden shop or home improvement shops. Mine includes: soil, seeds, plant food, twine, and the containers to plant in.
After a couple of days I already had a garden starting. First thing that came out were the Squash. They took over the container! As a first time gardener I do suggest that you read the instructions. I however didn't read, and planted several seeds in the same compartment. You are only suppose to put one seed into each. Woopsie! I just figured that some of the seeds wouldn't come up or stay alive so I planted 3-4 seeds in each compartment.

Here's what mine looks like after a week. I have tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, basil, oregano, carrots, and beans. The peppers are taking a bit longer, but they should be there soon.

Full size of garden container 74 compartments.

I think this is going to be a cucumber. A good idea to mark your garden with what's in it!

Basil and Oregano

I hope that all of these make it outside. I'm going to be testing my green thumb this year and as always I'm looking forward to this adventure!

Coffee Drink Of The Day

This is one of my favorite drinks that I've created while being a barista at a cafe in Vermont. When ordering this at your local cafe you may just want to ask for a vanilla latte then add cinnamon and honey yourself. This will prevent you from getting that blank look and the barista should know what you are talking about. Warning: this drink is very addicting!

Honey Buzz Latte

1 teaspoon of honey
1 shot of vanilla syrup
1 shot espresso (2 shots espresso for large)
dash of cinnamon
steamed milk

Mix all ingredient together and enjoy the taste with your favorite scone or biscotti!
