Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

The Hippo Has Landed! And Thankful Fur Three Bloghop, plus a bit of Garden Talk!

Hi Everyone! Exciting news -Hugo has arrived at our friends Chez Cat! Be sure to go over to say hello and see how his visit goes - and who knows, maybe he could be visiting you next! I am going to set up a Hugo Page, to track his visits and so that you can find his posts! Since I have all my static pages used up (though not all showing right now - someday I hope to finish them), I will be doing a pre-dated post and just add a link for it at the top (or in the sidebar - not sure yet). I am super excited and hope he gets to meet a lot of you!!

Also, today is Garden Thursday - ours is looking a bit ragged now, so I am going to talk about the aerogardens instead. A lot of you have asked about them - I think it is prety cool, and am amazed that the seed grew at all after so long. The mint is taking over (I really need to trim it) and the basil is doing good, but everything else is pretty small - but again, the seeds are old, so I am amazed they grew at all. But I think over all I would have to recommend the aerogarden because it is pretty cool. Since I got this one, they have come out with a lot of new styles (I have a 7 pod - a pod is a plant/seed holder) but they now have 6 and 3 pod units too. And, the coolest thing is that they just came out with a catnip pod! And they also have the kind you can fill with your own seeds (not pre-seeded like I have), and even a seedling starter kit. I really want to get a couple small ones for things like tomatoes, hot peppers, and of course cat nip! I just don't know where I would put them!

Next week I promise to have some pics for the garden post - our tree will be coming in this weekend at some point too, so I will get a picture of it!

And now, we have the Thankful Fur Three Bloghop, which was started by our friends over at The Teacher's Pets! We hope you all have a great day (and I am going to try and get some pictures up later on today!) We will see you tomorrow for Friends on Friday!

Welcome to Thankful FUR 3 Thursday Blog Hop! Why did I create this Thursday blog hop, you ask? Simply put, my three kiddos (Henry, Buster, and Daisy) want to meet three or more friends on their favorite day of the week and I thought their idea was pawsome!

This pet friendly blog hop is for every two-legged and four-legged blogger who wants to meet new and old friends alike. If you are not a fan of blog hops and do not wish to add your link below, we invite you to simply have fun, leave a comment (or not), and meet new bloggers who might strike your fancy!

Here are the guidelines of the Thankful Fur 3 Thursday Blog Hop:

1. We love your pawticipation and want to show it! In addition to gaining followers, each week we are giving today's Google Friend Connect followers, RSS reader subscribers, and e-mail subscribers a chance to be featured in next Thursday's blog post by doing the following:

a) Become a Google Friend Connect follower or an e-mail subscriber or subscribe in a RSS reader.

b) Leave a comment letting me know that you want to me to post a write-up for next Thursday's Blog Hop. When you comment please let me know what type of follower you are along with your blog address.

2. To join in the Thankful Fur 3 Thursday, include your link in our list and follow The Teacher's Pets (no co-hosts today, unfortunately). Visit other blogs on the list and comment to give them some blog love.

3. When people comment on your blog and let you know they’re a part of Thankful FUR 3 Thursday, return the favor and follow them back. This way everyone gets traffic and followers for pawticipating, and it’s a win-win situation.

4. Remember, YOU can host the link list on your blog too! Just click “GET THE CODE HERE…” at the bottom of the list.

We're having a lot of fun with Hugo! And thanks for al the gifts--though mama is being a little stingy and only giving us a few at a time. That aero garden is the coolest thing ever--mama loves fresh rosmary and sage, and the idea of our own 'nip would be fabulous. We'll have to check them out!

Mom said to tell you she is envious that you can sleep anywhere. It appears the older a human gets the harder it it is to sleep soundly!!!
Hugs Madi and Mom

That's very cool that Hugo is travelling like this! What adventures he's having!

Your aerogarden did really well, we thought, from pics we've seen before. Impressive!

Our garden is looking a bit long in the tooth. It slowly fading with the autumn growing more abundant.

The aerogarden sounds nice. We have some shelves for seedlings in the basement, but they dont look good enough to have upstairs...

Hi Amy, we went over to Chez Cat to say hello. We have added them to our reading list so now we can follow Hugo's adventures while he is visiting :-)
