And we're freezing around here! We're hovering around the zero mark at night and this old house, well, we love her but she's just not air (or heat) tight. Time for a fire in the fireplace, now all we need are chestnuts...and not just the Great Scot's jokes. Abby and Buddha have been parking themselves in front of the fire to stay warm; not to mention wearing little outfits I've been busy re-purposing from Goodwill children's clothes for them. Abby just loves her little dress; after all, what dainty wee pitbull wouldn't want a pink flowered dress with smocking?!?
(I had to add elastic to the bottom so her back legs wouldn't get tangled in it. Can you believe 3M laughed at me for it? )
The last few weeks have been busy ones, but there has been good mixed in with the bad. My oldest brother's heart cath went very well and whilst he does have blockages, none of them are severe enough to require more than medication. What a relief that was! Mom and Pop made it back to Florida before the really cold weather hit. Mom told me the only change she's noticed from the chemotherapy is that she has to have something sweet after a meal; there could be far worse side effects!
Let's see, the kidling is now living back home...she's staying here but her things are only partly moved due to inclement weather. You can tell how thrilled she is by it!
At least she's stylish whilst freezing!
It seems I keep apologising for not blogging and during the last few weeks I've realised that there's a bit of burn out going on. This has been a stressful year for a number of reasons and it's the blog which has suffered. I make no promises, outwith the fact that I have the best of intentions, but I shall endeavour to improve my performance and to spend more time with my blogging friends. I hope that the last few weeks have been kind to you.
A bit of cheer appropriate to the season:
