Raising a Family

When people ask me what I've been up to lately, altho I don't say it, what I want to say is:

"I'm raising my family."

Lucy
I am consumed, like any new mother, with these 2 sweet little puppies that have come into our lives.  Having a puppy and trying to train and raise him to be a good citizen takes a lot of time.  And doing that with 2 puppies takes so much time that right now, there's not much left for anything else.

And besides, I have very little interest in doing much else that I don't have to do right now.  Puppyhood is a brief moment in time, and I'm happy to devote myself to them above all else right now.

Ricky
But I am still playing music.  Lucy and I share my studio...She sleeps in there, and I play in there.  I usually play when she's resting.  I think of it as singing lullabies to my girl.  I'm pretty sure she likes it.  Ricky rests next door in Fermin's office, and he seems to like the music as well.  Lately, I've been editing thru a lot of previously written songs- Songs I've written over the past year and a half.  Mining for songs for my next CD.

I'm pretty sure there are new songs marinating inside of me about our puppies... How could this kind of love not inspire?

I want to get back to writing for this blog, but lately, my other blog is top banana.  But I'll try to get back to posting a couple of times a week.  Jump over here if you'd like to read my blog about all things Ricky and Lucy.  Or just stay tuned here, and I intend to get back to checking in more regularly...

Thank you for being patient while I'm raising my family!

No better way to spend the day...

Just enjoy those babies and the rest will all fall into place!
I was singing to my iTunes the other night and one of my doggies wanted me to hold him while I was singing. I was filled with gratitude over that little moment.

They are so adorable, no wonder you want to spend all your time with them! Great to hear that you're finding such joy in raising your puppies.

ah ... I'm in love! That last shot just says it all. And meanwhile ... keep marinating and know you have some ukulele-playing fans in Omaha waiting for the next album! My girl has fantastic taste in music :)

Ahhh...those big blue eyes are unbelievable! Puppies and babies both grow so quickly and before you know it...it's over...so I don't blame you for wanting to savor every minute you can while they are still playful pups. Enjoy!
