  1. It’s a Mite Chilly

    It’s 1:00 PM and the temperature is up to 26 degrees.  We aren’t going to make it out of the freezing zone today.  This morning at 10:00, it was only 12 degrees.  We don’t have this cold weather often and the dogs (including puppies) are ecstatic.  It snowed two days ago, but has been so cold that even with bright sunshine, it hasn’t melted.  The dogs (including puppies) love that as well.  Mud, mud, mud . . .

    The last year sped by.  I must not have been paying attention.  So now it’s time to start another.  I don’t make resolutions anymore because I disappoint myself by day four.  I simply attempt to do the good things I did last year and really consider the not-so-good before I repeat them.

    Last night I didn’t put the puppies in their individual crates.  When I do, they think they need to go outside at 5:00 AM — I REALLY wanted to sleep in.  So, no one woke me up until 7:00 and that was Holmes cleaning my face.  Inca joined in and I gave up.  7:00 is definitely past breakfast time.  I turned on the puppies’ light and they allowed as how they were also ready for breakfast.  Everyone fed, I decided a little puppy torture was in order.  I put them in an open cube, got out the camera — wait — Smooch, come back here.  I forgot how athletic she is.  I caught her a few times and then gave up.  So, you won’t see much of her in these photos.  DeAnn will be here next Saturday and we will try for some good photos of all the babies.

    I feel fortunate to start my year with puppy breath and puppy kisses.  It would be nice to hold that warm feeling for the next twelve months.  That’s what I wish for every one of you as well.
