January 1 2017



Welcome 2017!

Today we are having a blizzard, it is the perfect day to stay inside, take down Christmas and just chill with the dogs.  Brad is working nights so he is fast asleep.

I am glad to see 2016 go, it had a lot of downs, the worst being my sweet sister passing away in April, my heart still hurts so bad, but it did have some ups as well.  I finally found a job, one I have now been at for 6 months, grooming, I never thought I would do it again but here I am.  I guess if you are good at something you shouldn't fight it, grooming is my calling I suppose.  I am not sure how long I will be able to continue, it' not an easy job, but I will continue as long as I can, at least until Brad and I are more financially secure.

I have some goals for this year, one being trying for Lync's CD title.  I need to get back into classes, I'm putting those off until Spring, I just don't like going out in the winter, especially at night. I will also get back into tracking with Ash in the Spring hopefully, maybe even take Kort out as well.

I hope this year brings nothing but happiness to you and yours, Happy New Year!

Christmas 2016

Out tiny tree this year
Christmas is over for another year.  I had a lovely day with Brad, this year he didn't have to work which was so awesome!  We had our chicken and stuffing on Christmas Eve then had yummy sandwiches on Christmas Day while we spent our time watching movies together.  It was so cold we didn't go out anywhere so the dogs are going a bit crazy.  I could take them but their feet freeze up so fast.  Today is Boxing Day and it's supposed to warm up later at which time I will go out with the dogs.  They will enjoy that . 
I am off now until Dec 29 & 30th, then off again until January 3, 2017 is fast approaching! Brad has to work on New Years Eve, the price of having Christmas off.  That's ok, I will ring in the New Year with the dogs for company.
Hope all of your holidays have been Merry and Bright so far :)

Presents!

Keep on Smiling


Those first smiles are the best, especially coming from such a precious little boy :)

Christmas Craft Day 2016


Craft Day is over for another year.  This time we made wooden tea light holders.  I am not at all a crafty person so I am very excited how nice these turned out! good for me!

Liz made her famous peppermint mochas as well as a spinach and ricotta quiche.  It was snowing outside and we had the fire place going as well as Christmas music playing in the background.
A perfect day ....

December


Dawson met Santa last week, while he slept through it all it was still a great picture to treasure.  What a wonderful Christmas it will be for my niece Sherri having her first child to help her celebrate!

We are having another quiet Christmas, just Brad and I, makes me wish we had children but that was not in the cards for us.  I am however looking forward to my Christmas holidays, I work until the 23, then am off and don't work again until the 29th and 30th, then off again until January 3rd, so a nice little break.  Brad is off for Christmas but not New Years, that's ok, I would rather he be home at Christmas anyway.

Yesterday I picked up a little tree, I will decorate it after work tonight.  tomorrow is craft day out at Liz's, this is something we do every year and it is so much fun.  A bunch of us get together to make something for the house, this year will be wooden candle holders, can't wait.
