December 14, 2018

Not much to talk about today but the weather… it is beautiful outside high will be around 35 degrees – which is fairly warm for December in Minnesota.


Another nice sunrise…can never have too many of those!

Still haven’t wrapped any presents to put under the tree.  I am still getting them in. Maybe I will start later today.


Poor little tree, standing all empty underneath.  Part of that is because I know the cats AND the dog will not leave the gifts alone and it would be nice to get to Christmas morning with presents all intact.

I thought I had a photo of the time I left Mandy home alone with presents under the tree…with no short little expen around the tree.  Let’s just say I found out a lot of things the kids were giving me ahead of time. 😉

BUT as I was looking for a photo of that (which apparently doesn’t exist) Look what I came across!

That was Mandy right after we got her.  We got her right after Christmas when she was 2 years old, now this year she will 11 on January 1, 2019.

Mandy now:


She almost looks like two different hounds!  All of the dark fur on her face has turned to white.  She is even sweeter now as an old lady than she was as a youngster.  Such a good girl…even if she does like destroying Christmas wrapping! 🙂

Ummmm – guess that’s it for today!

Hey, it’s Friday!!!


Happy Friday!
