Wintersdream sorry you have shingles. That is a big fear of mine I got chicken pox late in life 31 so as soon as my insurance will pay for the shingles vaccine I will get it ... I have to wait a year and a half since its costly.

I had a sleep in day today but the rest of my week will be busy I'm preparing for a house guest for this Friday.

early 90's and my neighbor had them a couple of years ago as well as my older brother had them.

it's bad enough to have to deal with shingles then have to deal with an intestinal virus on top of that. you poor woman having to deal with both. i hope you get to feeling better soon.

Jane.. the movie sounds interesting as it is a true story about someone...how exciting for you to have went to school with the person. hopefully i will get a chance to see the movie.

wishing everyone a GREAT 2016.

the most important piece of clothing you must wear is love. Love is what binds us all together in harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. Colossians 3:14-15a

Ruth Ann, so sorry you had the shingles; I've known several people who have had it & some of them at a younger age than me and they've all reported being miserable. I've had the vaccine and I hope it works.

Yes, my sore throat turned what's beginning to feel like bronchitis, not coughing too much yet, but chest & neck really tight. We cancelled our plans to go to my sis's for the evening because even though I'm on antibiotics, I didn't want to spread this.

Jane, thanks for telling about that movie & you knowing the guy, cool!

~Kay~

Jane, thanks for the movie review and telling us about the personal connection.

I'm always sorry to hear that anyone has Shingles and to add an intestinal virus you must have felt miserable. I hope your doctor is right and you never have a recurrence.

To one and all I wish you a Happy and Safe New Year's Eve!

Sorry I haven't checked in in a while , but Dec 22 diagnosed with a bad case of Shingles. , then Dec 26 came down with a very nasty intestinal virus , couldn't keep any thing down for 2 days. and still trying to recover from both. On the Up side , my doc tells me the chances are very slim now that I will ever get shingles again. So hopefully I will be lucky enough not to go through this burning pain and rash again ever.

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas , and To All Happy New Year.

Lesley, sometimes I take a nap after dinner! lol

Dottie, you were right, I overdid it, and today I have felt bad, sore throat came back with a vengeance. Had a lot of office work to do too so I did that instead of anything else.

Today is DH & my 43rd wedding anniversary; we didn't do anything today, probably wait until the weekend; he worked & I didn't feel like going out.

One more day left in this old year; make the most of it!!

I'm feeling better but Mom is down with the creepy, crawly crud. We have wanted salty things and not much else but not much of them either so it works out. I made chicken rice soup once and chili twice. The sun is shining at the moment so I am girding my loins to go to Hobby Lobby, the grocery store, and Lowes. Making this cup of coffee last as long as I possibly can. LOL

Sounds good Dottie, could you please send me some?? Lol I bet it would help!! I do feel better today though. Got out and brought in a few of my outside decorations before they blew away; the wind has been so strong. Did laundry & ironing too, seemed like way more than usual.

Sandi, your New Year's sounds like fun; haven't been to an Outback in a long time, not too many around here, in fact I think they closed all but one.

My Grandmother's favorite cure for everything was homemade chicken soup. I inherited her soup pot from my Dad. It sounds like the team could use some steaming bowls of her cure.

Glad to hear you did get to the doctor Kay, hope you will feel better soon. My sinus infection is so much better after the antibiotics. I don't like to take them but there are times when it is necessary. Especially with us going off for Christmas!

We are suppose to finally have some cold weather for about 4 days, that is about all we get at a time.

We are going out with 4 other couples on New Year's Eve to Outback Steakhouse then over to one of the couples for dessert. It won't be wild that is for sure!

I'm wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2016!

Dottie, I think you covered about everything so I'll just add my wishes to all for a healthy and Happy New Year!! We won't do anything but maybe go to my sister's and play games & snack.

I gave up and went to doctor today, couldn't get my sore throat to let up. Waiting for over and hour and a half in the waiting room should make me sick if nothing else does. Poor man was swamped, I think we all had the same thing; I know it's because of this crazy weather, warm, then cold then warm again.

Lesley, lucky you, one of my favorite things is dog sitting, although sometimes puppies can be a challenge, but a black lab, so cute!!

Glad you aren't having that terrible weather Mary Alice, really feel for those who are.

Sandi, hope your sinus problems are getting better. Also I hope you don't have too much erosion around your cabin when you get there, that's too bad. This has been one wild weather year.

Wishing all a fantastic year ahead for 2016 !! My annual bottle of champagne still needs to be bought and chilled, that's been my yearly ritual for over 33 years. I usually celebrate with DH at home, we've gone to the boys a few years but other than that we watch the ball drop on tv.

It is almost 2016, and I have a few requests for the New Year.

Good Health and Happiness for the Team
Weather that makes sense for winter
Sanity for the world and ALL it's occupants
No more hate and bigotry
And forever homes for all the animals and people too!

Feel free to add your requests!

And just to cover all the bases, please stay well and safe my friends. And don't forget to give your fur babies some extra love.

MaryAlice, glad you are okay, sure praying for all those getting terrible storms.

We found out from neighbors that the area around our cabin in the mountains has had heavy rain and wind and a lot of erosion. We may have a mess to fix when we get back up there in the Spring.

Sophie, I know you will have fun puppy sitting!!!!!

Have a great Monday everyone! Laundry and grocery shopping for me!

Kayde and Goozlebear I hope you both feel better soon.

My younger son Steven and his wife adopted a Black Lab mix pup 4 months old... Looks like I'll be sitting with him on Thursdays and Fridays until he's out of the puppy stage.

My YMCA pool is undergoing its annual maintenance this week so I might just do weights and treadmill there this next week.

No I'm not in that mess in the panhandle. It was just yucky today till about 5:30 then the temp dropped 20 degrees and it poured. A cold rain and maybe some frost in the morning, but nothing like what the panhandle is getting.

Woke up to a sore throat, blah! This rain & wind is not helping. It's turning cold now & supposed to have sleet tomorrow. More fun..although, I can stay in, my heart goes out to all those affected by the Christmas time tornadoes, I know they have it a lot worse.

Have a safe trip, Sandi!

Dottie, shopping online sounds like a good alternative. Guess it worked before Christmas, it's work after. I really only wanted some cards for next year.

Good poem, Mary Alice, you must not be in the worst of the Texas weather.

Love the poem, MaryAlice.

We have heavy fog and the trails are more like marshland, but Jack doesn't mind. Later I'll take Pooh and Jack to the paved trail around the creek at the park.

Only a night from old to new;
Only a sleep from night to morn.
The new is but the old come true;
Each sunrise sees a new year born.

Helen Hunt Jackson, “New Year’s Morning” (Unitarian, poet, reformer)

Good morning. Mutt and I went for our morning walk, first mile and a half into 20 mile an hour winds, next min light rain last half mile the winds again. It was 75 at 5 this morning so the wain felt good, but could have done with out the wind. The people that tell us this stuff and are never right say we are in for a weather change.

Kay, I did a little online shopping for a few things that I saw before Christmas. I did pretty good 60 to 75 percent off.
Every year the stores seem to push the holiday on consumers before we an catch our breathe.
I am not ready to think about emoticon Day!

But I'll send out some emoticon to you all anyway!

We had a wonderful Christmas here too, Dottie!! Glad you did!! I agree, hope everyone else did too!!

Thought I'd do a little bargain hunting today; you know wrap, cards, little decorations, I couldn't believe it, everything was nearly gone & they had Valentine's stuff was out. People really seemed to buy more around here this year. I guess I waited too late, they must have up at dawn and went. You snooze, you loose!! emoticon

Sandi, glad you had a good time with family & friends. That would help when you can't be with all your family!

Merry Day after Christmas to you all! Guess I didn't make it on yesterday. We had a wonderful day with our son and family and then last night some of my daughter in law's family came over last night and it was fun having lots of people around. Our family is so small especially with our daughter and family in Colorado, that it was nice having others here!

Mary Anne, glad you are able to be with your parents and others in the nursing home. I'm sure you brought happiness to them.

Finally stopping in to wish the best team a very Merry Christmas. Celebrated Christmas with my kids this past weekend. Was with mom and dad yesterday. While dad napped, I took mom to the mass as the nursing home. Not sure how much she understood but there seemed to be a flicker of recognition. Will be spending the day with them and with others living there that have no family. I'm there so much that most think I either live there or am one of the nurses! Warms my heart to help bring joy to them especially at this time of the year.

Hugs to all! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

DH and me went to 4pm mass then out to eat. Christmas morning we're having breakfast at younger sons home and afternoon dinner at older sons home. I got my Christmas dvd today and we watched it ... And it was good it was the singing Christmas tree at Bellevue Church in Memphis, TN they put the story of Ruth set in 1945 Christmas time theme with the birth of Jesus story.

80 degree weather today expecting more of the same tomorrow.

We had a great day today at my dad's. My nephew's little boys make it so much fun. They do such cute things. And, of course, we had plenty of food, tried not to overdo too much.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas celebrations too!

Kayde I'll be careful on those weight machines some of the machines we skipped because I had aches where it would work.

Jeanette I like gift cards too especially to nice restaurants my kids would get DH and me one which is nice since that seems to be one of the ways to get him to go to one. As far as clothing that's hard gift cards are better there especially for women.

Glad you got your gift package, Lesley, and hope you get your Christmas dvd.

Dottie, I sure hope you get your gift too. I certainly don't feel that way about gift cards, I love them. It takes the burden off of the person, especially for clothes. I even get my DH gift cards, and he does for me too. That way you can try them on, sizes are too uneven anymore. Now if it something specific, and they tell you exactly what they want, I don't mind buying. I tell you, some of my in-laws are picky, and I don't like to buy for them. Gift cards have been a blessing.lol

It was almost balmy here today and the wind is howling; we haven't had storms, but some very hard rains. Not like Christmas. We have our family Christmas tomorrow, so I may not make it on tomorrow, so I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Kay, I sorry to hear about the feral kitty. Thank you for wanting to help him.

I still have one gift waiting to be delivered. It was supposed to be here yesterday and now they say tomorrow emoticon Nothing like last minute and the recipient is hard to please, so I can't just run out and get something else. She also let me know that she felt gift cards were a sign that I didn't care enough to shop for something special emoticon
Bah Humbug!

But I'm sending you all emoticon

Kay...so sorry to hear about the feral kitty becoming road kill...how i know that so well. i worry about Springs so much and that is why Hobo is now a house kitty. it is a 35 MPH here in town, but unfortunately i live at the end of town and on a straight stretch so they are going usually 55 MPH. i even hate walking the road to get the mail as they speed by so fast and so close to me. i even stop when i know a vehicle is coming. Hugs to you for trying to take care of the little feral kitty. at least he knew someone cared. Springs follows me around like a dog and i have to outsmart him if i'm walking across the road or working in the front yard. have a good day.

Yes, do be careful on the weight machines, you don't want to injure yourself. I hope there is someone to assist you with them, Lesley. I had a cousin who tore a rotator cuff by using too much weight on a machine. I hope your package arrives, mine finally all did.

Sue, I generally like most animals. Yesterday I had an incident that really upset me. I'd had my eye on a feral cat who stayed in a lone barn down the road. If I talked or called to the cat, it took off like a shot. I was going to leave food down there at the barn if it got snowy, but yesterday, somebody hit & killed it. People drive too fast down this country road, and I always brake or stop for animals, even the ones I don't like, but I know a lot don't.

i'm so far behind on everything...cards still need done. am almost finished decorating...need to clean and i can't even think of making cookies.

i like most critters...i guess i don't like rats. i think opossums are even cute. Chipmunks used to eat my tulip bulbs and lily bulbs. when there were 5 or 6 of them the one year doing their thing i just couldn't handle it so i have a live trap and placed it in their path and baited it with nuts and relocated them somewhere else in the woods away from homes and i hope they lived happily ever after in the woods. now there are a couple of them and they are not a problem. they just eat from the bird feeder. i enjoy seeing them and the squirrels at the feeders along with the birds. right now i don't have any feeders out as i have been visited by a bear in the night time and it has destroyed my feeders. i just noticed my 3rd feeder took a hit. no feeders for awhile until the bear moves on.

i think the cow pasture must look beautiful when the tulips are blooming.

wish everyone a Wonderful Christmas!

Ruth Ann, that's a lot of cookies, I don't know what a lot of them are, but I'll bet they're all good. Thanks for the info on foods to watch too. I didn't think about peanut butter.

Dottie, you much have a more civilized group of chipmunks & squirrels. lol I just got my cards out on Saturday. I think that's about as late as I've ever been. Now with your foods, I knew about white rice, but not corn, but I can see where that would make sense.

Tulips in the cow pasture, that's pretty funny, Mary Alice. I've been blaming the chickens for rearranging my daisies, but maybe it's the chipmunks there too.

That is an amazing assortment of cookies! You must have a lot of willpower emoticon

Sorry, everybody has troublesome chipmunks and squirrels. Ours do a little digging, but nothing serious. And they plant a lot more than they dig up. The bird baths are frozen solid in the mornings, but I still have flowers blooming that were mother nature's way.
I do take care of the sick, injured or orphaned ones. Maybe that is why they're on their best behavior.

I finally got my Christmas cards and letters written and send along with the packages that had to go to UPS. Shopping is finished both gifts and food, but I have to finish wrapping. Tomorrow is another day emoticon although I'm cutting pretty close this year.

So friends take some time for yourselves this evening and relax and give your fur babies some extra pets from me.

I bet your friend's pasture is pretty MaryAlice!!!

Thanks for the input, Wintersdream. I'm going to see if SP has more information on meal plans as suggestions on what to eat would be helpful. Yesterday we were given a container of homemade divinity, and a friend gave me two kinds of chocolate. If I can't find anyone to give it to, it will be trashed!!! I know some dark chocolate may be ok in moderation but not divinity!!!!! emoticon

I have a friend that built a house in the middle of what had been a cow pasture. She planted around the house, but left the pastures. All her tulips were dug up. Every year she tries again. Every year the tulips disappear. Now she knows were they are. She has no flowers around her house, but the pastures are covered with tulips.

Kay Ill email you some cookies . I like the sweater the cat is wearing but it doesn't look like he likes it much .

Dottie I 'm with Kay, I think the chipmunks are cute too ,, just not in my yard. I planted 75 tulip bulbs out here one year before we had the house built . Expecting that the next spring my tulip bed would be just gorgeous , The chipmunks dug up every bulb I planted , there was a lttle indentation in the ground where the bulb used to be. I was so mad I could spit. So when we moved out here and the cats started killing them I cheered for the cats .

Sandi I am still baking, I have 4 kinds of biscotti cookies done , the oatmeal raisin cookies , the peanut butter, the chocolate chip , the toffee bits cookies, the anisettas , the jujulinas , and the sugar cookies done, Now this week i have to do pignolis, gingerbread, and cuccidaties.

Sandi try to keep yoru carbs under 240 gms a day , watch eating a lot of breads, pastas, sugars, and peanut butter or fruit juices. If you can get your blood sugar under control now you will not become diabetic,, but if you go over the line then there is no going back.

Dottie, thanks for the information, I can use all the help dealing with this that I can get! I did the challenge here on Spark and learned about the hidden sugar in our food. We don't use processed food anymore if we have a choice, I know it is so bad for you. I have been rationing out my treats and my neighbors have been baking lots of goodies!!!

Sandi and Kay, I am a type 1 diabetic. You should be able to still have small holiday treats. Just watch your portions and make wise choices. Hidden sugars are a bigger problem so if you use processed foods read the labels.
White rice and corn are two things that cause my glucose to go up. Look out for simple carbohydrates of any kind

Sorry, I've got to run....Jack just grabbed the cat's bowl!

Sandi, I'm so sorry, but I'm nearly there with you. Every year my blood work shows glucose edging up with this year's at higher range. It runs in my family. Dr. said it was still okay, but I'm going to have to start watching or else. I thought right after the first of the year I would make some big changes.

Dottie, I wish you would teach them manners, yes our squirrels absolutely terrorize the birds and there's usually only one or two of them. They tear out the nests and eat the eggs, usually only in the spring.

Grandma Mary Alice, sounds like you have the magic touch!! It's easier to get them doing something than to sit still, that's for sure.

DD called this morning and told me she was in labor and would I take care of her boys, 6 and 3. As they were going out the door, her husband turned and said "there is a trick to turning on the TV let me show you." My DD told him I would never turn the TV on and to come on. He left muttering about how after 1/2 hour of those boys, I would want them watching a movie. Nope according to Fitbit, the boys and I played in the back yard for 150 mins. Then they wanted to come inside. That's where the fun began. They stood on the back of the stationary bike while I took them to the beach. Then they went back to the back yard and sat in lawn chairs sipping, well it was water, they called it something that sounded tropical. At 10A DD's labor came to a stop and they discharged her. By then the boys were trying to keep 6 balls moving at the same time. No one missed the TV. And somehow I still got a load of cloths done, filled the dishwasher and put a bassinet together. They haven't figured that out.

Finally got my baking done today. I'm not doing as much as I usually do, just not in the mood.
I did find out Thursday from my doctor that I am pre diabetic. What???? how did that happen?? I'm trying to find out just what I need to eat. It must not be on the borderline because she just said try to lose some more weight over the next few months and it will be checked again in May! This is a terrible time of the year to have to give up sugar!!!!!

Kay, I think I have to come and teach your squirrels and chipmunks some manners. I have never seen a squirrel go after any bird's egg. They do fight fiercely to protect their babies from hawks that try to invade a nest.
We have a lot of inter-species friendships, which include our cat and his squirrel buddy and bluejay. It really is a peaceable kingdom.

Love the cat picture, that's how I feel when I want a cookie!! lol

I think squirrels & chipmunks both are cute, just not on my property, Dottie!. The chipmunks here have dug up my bulbs and flowers so much, they are quite destructive, and the squirrels tear up the bird nests and eat or knock the eggs right out of the nest, and really it only takes one or two to do it. But to watch them feed from a feeder or run around playing, I love to do that. Same with rabbits and bunnies.

People can get hostile over parking places, places in line etc. this time of year. I think they forget what it's all about, you know good will toward men. Sad, but true.

I didn't spark yesterday because it was one of those days where there was just too much going on and something had to give, but now I'm feeling more in control, of my time that is.

Would anyone want to wear that sweater? I thought not emoticon

I guess I'm the only chipmunk fan, but then I think mice are cute too! I'm sort of an equal opportunity animal lover!

Cookies would be nice for a change. Your goodies sound yummy, especially the salted caramel cake. I like your theory on why the cat brings it's little victims to you. I hope you learn how to catch those chipmunks!! lol

I've had a hectic day. Trying to get too many things done in one day, I think.

Have a fabulous Friday!

Kay ,, Marissa catches the chipmunks and brings them to me alive. carriing them like baby kittens , then she drops them at my feet and expects me to chase them. Like she is trying to teach me how to catch chipmunks. so Like a good student I give them a chase around until they climb up a tree. My hubby thinks I am crazy but I know she is trying to teach me to catch my own dinner. she is trying to provide for the family.


Kay I have to make the cookies or the family goes bazurk, My husbands mother used to make them they are mostly Italian cookies. She passed away in 2002 and his sister cant bring herself to try to make them so I thought it would be a good Christmas gift "ONE" year for them .. and it has been my job every year since. I also have to make an old fashioned banana pudding, and a Salted Caramel cake too .

JANEGIBE ; Jade digs up the moles here and Molly takes them away from her. My husband hates all the holes in the yard but I think they are doing me a service .

Well more work to do have a great day everyone .

I love the little things.. way too cute... My dog has a thing for moles.. When we do move.. we have a lot of holes to fill.. I have saved all of the ones she dug up but a tiny one.. didn't know until I looked at the slimy thing.. It may have had a heart attack cause she don't chew or eat them...

No thanks, Dottie, we have plenty of chipmunks here too. I wish she would catch some of them, but she'd probably just play with them like she does mice. She's kind of mean the way she acts like she's letting them escape only to catch them again, over & over. I don't like to watch. lol

I finished my shopping today, even the small stuff, I really don't know why I wait so late, although my son didn't tell me what he wanted until the first part of December.

I made cookies one year for Christmas & my bunch just don't eat them, they want pie, so I don't bother because I certainly don't need them.

Jeanette , I have hundreds of chipmunks out in the woods behind the house where they piled up all the trees they bulldozed down to build the house in 2013 . The Chipmunks aren't to happy that hubby is slowly wittling the pile of trees away for the fireplace

Well Nicholas and the dogs are friends again. And I have noticed he and Marissa are some what friendly if he don't try to jump on her. Mindy just likes being with people ,.and staying away from the other animals.

It was Molly and Jade's Vet visit day. vaccinations and heart worm shots , they are not to happy. We have to muzzle Molly at the vet but Jade does ok.

Well its back to making cookies have a Great Day everyone

She'd love our garage, we have chipmunks!

When Jack is in trouble, he cocks his head and looks at me with his big brown sad eyes. He can be pretty irresistible. When I say come here he comes and touches his nose to my right hand and then lifts his head up for a kiss on the nose.

I'm glad to hear you have good walking weather again.

I think my cat likes exploring in anything new like the decorations and such, but that gets her into trouble, and getting into trouble doesn't suit her. Then she wants to go out into the garage on her own. lol

Now Ben, the dog, is another story, no matter how many times he gets in trouble he'll still try again. Stubborn is his middle name.

I'm back on track with my walking, glad the rain is over.

I think cats sometimes get out of sorts during holidays. Many don't seem to like changes in their routines, like decorated windowsills and table tops. It provokes a question as old as time, "And just where do you expect me to lay?. As you can see, I speak emoticon

Jack loves hiking, Pooh loves her walks, but nothing too strenuous.

Always remember, kindness is it's own reward emoticon

that's funny what everyone's fur babies do.
i know here at my place it is never a dull moment, especially with Hobo being a very playful 8 month old kitten. He keeps the other cats getting their exercise by chasing them. i hear a hiss and i know he is trying play with someone, even Panda my Aussie jumps away from him. well, it's feeding time so i must get moving. i feed late in the evening and the kitties sleep through the night and all is quiet. have a wonderful day!

the most important piece of clothing you must wear is love. Love is what binds us all together in harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. Colossians 3:14-15a

Dottie, I've been making Ben's food because he doesn't like hardly any commercial dog foods, and a lot of them don't agree with him. I've been getting recipes off of Pinterest, but was happy to see what you put in yours for ideas. My dad had a lot of ground beef (it's more like ground round) that's free range and it was in the freezer and he let me have it because he doesn't cook anymore much. I've been putting veggies, pumpkin, brown rice etc. I put in over kibble which he sometimes eats & sometimes not. I've never had a picky eater like him. Every other dog I've ever had & I've had a lot in 50+ years has been big eaters. By the way, my lab numbers have went down since walking Ben too, he's small but full of energy.

WINTERROSE we have something in common, besides loving our animals and Spark! You big batch bake and yes my big batch cooking is for the dogs. When it's chicken or turkey one container is set aside for my cat, Horatio.
Here's tonight's menu, stewed chicken in it's natural broth, steamed sweet potato, carrots, celery and tomatoes. Jack gets his meals mixed with a half cup of kibble.
Both dogs love veggies, some favorites not on tonight's menu, squash, spinach, kale and green beans. They get eggs twice a week and chicken livers three times a week. They're other meals vary protein wise as does their basic starchy carbohydrate. They love brown rice, barley and couscous.
Jack loves peanut butter and Pooh loves apples. I keep a big container of kibble in my home office and they both think of it as a treat, when they get a few pieces at a time emoticon

MaryAlice, you are so right, we do learn to multitask when you have fur children!

Kay, I bet the chickens were happy Lexi was under and not in the coop!

Jane, the last time I saw my doctor he wanted to know what I was doing. I told him, I have a new exercise partner his name is Jack. He said is Jack a friend or a trainer? I said no he is a large hound with a ton of energy. He thought that was hysterical, but he also said my lab results were great!

Until tomorrow, take care everyone emoticon

Dottie if I set anything out on the counter , my cat Nicholas will get it down , the funny thing is he takes it over to the dogs and drops it in front of them .. Not sure if he is being generous or trying to get them in trouble LOL.

MaryAlice and Sandi I need to send out christmas cards to this week , and bake cookies to .. I have 44 dozen to bake and am adding sugar cookies to the list this year. I love Christmas but boy it takes me a month to prepare and get ready for it and a month to recover from it.

Thanks everyone on the compliments on Mindy, She truly is a wonderful cat. I feel sorry for who ever lost her . but I know she was pregnant and had a litter of kittens when she was in the pound I sure hate to think someone dumped her.

Dottie do you make your own dog food?

Well have a Great Day everyone.

Dottie, that was a funny story! I could just see you chasing after your Jack with a chicken leg in his mouth. lol That would get your blood pumping.

That like me today with my cat, Lexi. I let her go out with the dog &me when we walk and then take her back in when we're done, because she's a house cat. Well, we couldn't find her, and it was getting dark, she always comes when I call or answers me when a meow. I kept hearing a faint mew in the back yard but didn't know if it was her or the chickens settling down. We had a concert to go to and were about to give up and my son yelled he found her. I asked where & he said chicken coop, we had looked inside it, but she was under it which dh has enclosed all but one hole for them to get in & out for winter. I bet she was under there looking for mice. Needless to say I got my 10,000 steps in .

I think it gets tracked next to my having to trow a ball if I'm in the yard. I can hang laundry, mow and pick up sticks while tossing a ball. The things we do when we have a dog.

Hi everyone, thanks for the get well wishes. They worked....I'm back emoticon

This was my afternoon to do big batch cooking for the dogs. Ten pounds of chicken leg quarters. Jack stole a leg, while I had them cooling. I thought the bowl was well out of his reach, but with Jack it is if there is a will there's a way!
Does anyone know how to track chasing a dog up and down and all around a four story house?
I've never seen that in any exercise routine! emoticon

Needless to say the Christmas cards didn't get touched. There's always tomorrow or next year emoticon

Always remember laughter is the best medicine!

Christmas is not so much a matter of explanation and interpretation as it is a mood and a feeling. It is a time in the cycle of the year set apart by hope and fellowship and generosity. Christmas is the season of the heart.

That's cute, Mary Alice. Not too kids that would care much about getting cards!

I would take him if I were closer, Sue, my mom's cat was Smokie and she was a great cat.

I can't believe how warm it is here, got a couple windows open a bit, even though I'd already taken most of the screens out for winter. Great walking weather, but I miss the snow.

My daughter sent me a picture of her 6 year olds letter to Santa. Very first thing on his list was mail. I sent a Christmas card just to him. He carries it around showing everyone, but they better not try and touch it. Maybe Santa needs to send another card.

I need to start on Christmas cards today too, I've already started getting some from out of town friends and it is always fun to get them even if they do just sign their name!

Decorations inside and outside are done, it's a good thing since Christmas isn't that far off!!

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone
