Today I welcome my first Guest Blogger, Jackie of Housewife Blues and Chihuahua Stories! Put down your bags, pull up a chair and tell me a story!
What a Texas housewife does for entertainment.....
First off just let me say thank you to Amy for inviting me to guest post, my very first one and hope it is not too dull!
My name is Jackie and as you can see my greatest pleasure in life is my pets, the "boys" are Nikki and Blade. My eleven year old Chihuahua and my 6 year old Tom Cat!
This young lady is my 7 year old Tabby cat Munequa, the true "Queen of the House" and my husband's favorite "sparring partner" !
When I am not playing with my pets I can be found in my recliner with a book in my hand, on my computer working on blog posts are reading others posts and laughing or doing housework on and off during the day...
My favorite time of year is spring and early summer when I can work in the yard.
I am the one who gets to mow, weed eat and then clean up the mess after for 7 months or more a year... Unfortunately these last two years my back has not wanted to cooperate so the yard work is not as easy or enjoyable as it used to be!
On weekends we tend to run errands, hit a movie if one is out we want to see locally and of course go out to Chili's to eat at least once!
My all time favorite hobby though other than reading, eating out, going to see a good action flick is my craft work. I have a passion for cross-stitch and crochet, the cross-stitch has been put on hold for the last 21/2 years as my right eye has a cataract and it has made it impossible for me to work on my stitching for any length of time... Here are some of the items I love to look at that I did few years ago now!
My favorite subjects are woodland creatures, and my most prized piece does not photograph well but it is an 11"X14" framed Indian War Pony that took me months to do and is my favorite of all!
Anyway thanks again Amy and hopefully someone will stop by and enjoy a little glimpse into the very laid back things that make me smile!
Thank you, Jackie for being my first Guest Blogger! I hope you all enjoyed getting to know Jackie a little better!
