We had a nice Christmas! Sweet Mama said that LB was her present...she was going to put a bow on his head to let everyone know. He opted out! There was talk of snow here for Christmas day...but NO. Everyone else in the state got some...even Savannah had a flurry. But here in middle GA...we got nothing...not even a flake. Skippy was one dissapointed boy. LB said that he could go home with him...they had 10 to 14 inches while he was gone! He was not looking forward to digging out his car at the airport! There still was snow on the ground in Atlanta when we took him to the airport on Tuesday evening. It would have been nice if we had just a teeney bit...
So now that the Christmas rush is over, time for New Year plans. The 2nd Anniversary Sale of my Etsy shop is next month! 10% Off!! I am busy getting cute new things ready... But Beau is pooped. He thinks it is time for a long winter's nap!

Can you believe it? It will be 91 degrees today. Too hot. I hear it is Fall but.....My roses don't know it yet! This rose is planted by the storage house in the back yard. I didn't plant it...it has been here since Sweet Mama bought this house. It always has looked a little sickly but this year it has persevered. It has decided to grow....and grow...and grow! A little house sure hasn't got it the way! So it reminds me that no matter the challenges...never give up!

It was fun! We rode from the top to the bottom. This was at the bottom.
You have to pay at the top which is on a tiny neighborhood street. It was $1.00!
When I was in the shops there was a cool bookstore (which I bought a Crochet book!) and a neat antique shop which had this!
I have never seen a mannequin like this one! Check out how the skirt can be expanded! It was $200...if I was closer to home...and rich! Too cool!!!
Here are some pictures of the grand dogs. Bruiser is the alpha dog...a chihuahua. (He was named after the dog on "Totally Blonde"). He is very sweet and cuddly. Sam is a flat coat retriever who is camera shy! He is actually a foster dog and is going back home to Missouri on Saturday. He belongs to H's parents who had moved to Arizona and could not take him with them. But they are now back in MO and now, a year later, Sam is going back home too! Bruiser is getting a girl friend sometime soon..Cinderella. He can not be left alone...he gets lonely. So he is getting a cute babe...Pictures to come! I hope he will be nice!
We had a great time but the drive home was long. It takes 2 days! Skippy kept the cats and they loved him! That was nice..so glad they didn't have to go back to the kennel...Beau HATED that!! They are thrilled we are back and life is getting back to normal...whatever that is. I just miss the cool weather..although they said it was hot up there. I couldn't tell! It was 94 degrees here when I checked one day with a heat index of 111...Didn't miss that one bit!
It was nice not to think about work and relax..just like Bruiser!

Remember our tiny snow fall in Feb? Okay it was HUGE to us! And, of course, was almost gone by daylight! Which was fine with me! But a little of this stuff would be nice to have right about now!
So cool of with me and my memories...Look out the door with Mom....feel the cool air and sleep well!!
