Follow that Extension Cord

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

After breakfast, the house got really quiet. I had my nose buried in my laptop, so I didn’t notice right away. But, eventually, the silence made me curious– mostly because my husband and pug are rarely quiet for long.

With in a few seconds, I discovered this:


An extension cord that went from our second floor apartment.


All the way downstairs.


And out the front door.




It eventually led me to this scene:


At least they weren’t getting themselves into trouble! 😉



Murphy loves helping Dad. And, today, he enjoyed barking at random people walking by on the street. Generally, Murphy’s not much of a barker, so I don’t know what got into him. Maybe the sound of the vacuum cleaner was agitating him?



For lunch, I enjoyed a delicious bowl of spaghetti squash with roasted grape tomatoes, olive oil, Garlic Gold, and grated Parmesan cheese. Surprisingly, this meal was quite filling!


Here’s my How to Cook Spaghetti Squash tutorial.

A little while later, I felt munch-y, so I made a plate with crackers and cucumber slices with sea salt sprinkled on top. Now, I want something sweet to eat. I’m thinking pitted dates or a Larabar.


Time to take the pug for a walk.

See ya for dinner! 😎



  1. murphy wasn’t tethered?! oh my gosh! i wish i could train my dogs to stay put like that. what a good boy! my pit would have been halfway to mars, wind in his ears, looking for someone to play with.

    i love spaghetti squash! i think it’s an acorn squash night in my house today.

  2. Your tips on spaghetti squash prep are so simple and straightforward. A couple weeks back I was having trouble finding a good ‘how to’ and found your recipe for your spaghetti squash casserole – it turned out amazing and my husband is now requesting the dish weekly.

  3. That spaghetti squash looks so amazingly delish.
    Your little Murphy is to cute. My dog is terrified of the vacuum and will run away at the sight of it.

  4. Haha, this is the scene of my house many times. I came home today to find all of the pictures off the wall. Apparently, my hubby decided to spackel all of the holes in the walls for an afternoon to-do. Boys!! 🙂
