New Year

We rang in the New Year very quietly at our house. The hubs, myself, and three dogs (one loaner) had warmth from the pellet stove and a Doctor Who marathon to help us stay up until the neighbors were done popping off whatever it is they were using to make noise at midnight.

Hans, our visitor, claimed the little doggie bed on the floor

Sasha had firm control of the pillow on the big sofa…

And Misty was doing her best “velcro dog” imitiation next to me on the love seat..

Our child who was “home” for the holiday ran off to visit friends an hour away for the night, leaving us to look after little Hans (Solo) for a while. He is dog-sitting for a few more days yet, so our rather un-social (with other dogs, that is) Sasha is having her patience tested. I almost think that the rather frequent stays of other dogs at our house this year have helped her to overcome her fear….a little bit at least. That’s one plus for 2012!


  1. Didn’t know you have a pellet stove. The Knight wants one badly. Convince me… or at least share what brand you have!

  2. With our Katie here for the last week we’ve been hearing the telltale theme song from Doctor Who a lot. 🙂 God bless you all in 2013!

  3. Sounds like it worked out for the best. As for kids needing to visit with friends when they’re home, it used to be quietly hard and now, after 12 years’ practice at it, I encourage them to not feel guilty. (There, do I earn my brownie points now, kids?)

  4. I just got an email back from the Colourmart folks. I had bought all they had of a bright blue silk/lycra to make a baby blanket for the coming grandson and I was coming up short; did they have another one not listed by very wild chance?

    And they DID!!! It is on its way today!
