Our favorite day has arrived and can I just say color me happy! Although time seems to be whizzing out of control toward Christmas, I’m starting to make a little bit of progress with the howli-day baking though Sam and Elsa keep staring at an empty treat jar hinting that I’m not as far along as I think. What about you? Any plans for the weekend?
Live, love, bark! ❤︎

No baking for me yet. I’m still in the cleaning phase, yuk. A.
BOL!! Yummm! Sprinkles!! I think my humom is still in denial about Christmas coming so soon. She JUST ordered our xmas cards!!!! Sigh…don’t even get me started on the howliday baking!
I know, it sure snuck up on me too!
That’s a hilarious photo!!!!
Nothing exciting here except for two sick dogs. I give up. I won’t be ready for Christmas, and that’s just fine with me. 🙂
Oh no, not sick pups. Sorry. Hope they get on track to feeling better soon. POTP being sent your way. P.S. Glad you enjoyed the smile.
We had a bit of a winter storm on Friday afternoon into late yesterday afternoon. So, after breakfast at the diner on Friday, we picked up some groceries and came home to snuggle with the pups. The little bit of snow we did get is mostly gone already, but there’s black ice on the roads so we’re staying home today too. At least until it melts. Current temp is 27F. Even the pups get cold in those temps! Happy Sunday!!
That’s probably quite a shock to everyone’s system. It’s unseasonably warm here and I’ll have to water the trees and garden again today. 60’s in December is beyond comprehension!
We are hanging around the house and trying to stay warm. LOL!
Hope you manage to stay cozy and warm. Enjoy the day with some hot cocoa and a nice lap blanket with a couple adorable pups. 😍
HAHAHAHAHAHA!! Hilarious photo Monika!!!!
((hugs)) Sherri-Ellen & **nose bumpsss** Siddhartha Henry xxx
We love to make effurry-one smile.
We haven’t seen any cookies either. Me and Stanley are gonna bring up the tree today we think.
Murphy & Stanley
BOL, we think you might have seen those cookies right before they disappeared.
Hope those were extra tasty sprinkles!
If I could bake it would be a good alternative to moving two yards of rocks to a new garden project we are working on. I thought about hooking a wagon to Kloe to move them about 100 feet to the final destination but she would be too “enthusiastic” and they’d land in all the wrong places. Kali would be much better suited to follow instructions and be precise in her delivery but alas, she is much older and sometimes can barely carry her own 60 pounds. SO, dad will be humping all the rocks while the dogs lounge in this unseasonable warm weather snoopervising (thanks for letting me use your hilarious term).
Our fur-babies do manage to do that whole snoopervising thing oh-so well. Don’t hurt yourself and be sure to take lots of thirst quenching breaks. 🍷
Have a great weekend.
Right back atcha!
I have orientation this weekend for my new job! 🙂
Congrats and best wishes!
Christmas cookies? We will be hopping on the first flight outta here to help you eat them!
Thinking that maybe it is time to get the house finished decorated and maybe get the tree up
Sounds like a good plan. Have fun with the tinsel!
The struggle’s real!!!
Boy…you know it!
Early morning walk with Benji ; breakfast ; computer ; garden ; help Annabell to get things ready for Sunday ; watch Netflix ; Sunday, church then the congregational Christmas Lunch ; home ; help Annabell ; Family over for dinner; Once they have gone, have second glass of wine, go through to my room,, settle down with Benji and watch another episode of the Shannara Chronicles on Netflix. Quiet weekend really……
☺️ Gosh you’re so busy you’ll need the week to rest up!
MOL😹 may I lick your nose🎅Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend😻❤
BOL! Love the meme 😉
We are installing our new wood stove; it’s bigger! Apparently it will throw more heat efficiently while lowering the emissions to almost nothing (whatever that means)!
HuMom didn’t want to put up our purple tree until this is done; it may get messy.
So we will be decorating this weekend after the stove is in (it’s heavy, almost 10 of me).
Sam & Elsa, I hope mom gets to those treats soon 😉
Have a toasty weekend with decorating fun on the side. Decorating the tree seems like sprinkles, right? 🎄
Housebreaking the schnauzer (still), grooming, housebreaking the schnauzer, church, continuing to housebreak the schnauzer.
LOL…sounds like you’ve got your work cut out for you. Good luck!
Because we have a lot more shopping to do, we’re going to a hockey game instead of shopping!
Excellent plan! Go Badgers.
Nope – go Irish!! Our alma mater is in town!
Works for me then! Go Irish 🍀
If today counts as part of the weekend, which I like to think it does if I’m not working (like today), we are going to have a Christmas photo shoot for Tippy, tomorrow my plans are to go see my nephew graduate from college with an advanced degree and Tippy gets to go to doggie day care (if it doesn’t snow like the weather people are calling for), and Sunday I’ll miss church (because they are only having one service at 10:40) so I can go have my sing-along with the residents at a local nursing home. I’ll probably break out the Christmas hymns, even though they are pretty hard to play and sing, I think. In between times, I’ll try to get some cards mailed, cleaning done, and Oreo Balls made.
Whew…I’m exhausted just reading all you’re doing! Have a great time enjoying the season. 🎅🏻
Thank you! You too!
A bird would have licked those sprinkes off the beak-destroy the evidence and extend the pleasure.
Tis the Season now means, shopping, baking, cooking, cleaning (not always in that order) hahaha or is it ho ho ho?
Or procrastinating like me 🎅🏻
We’ll definitely go and see the “Christmas Journey”, a living Christmas scenes display by the congregation of the Bethany Lutheran Church – either today or tomorrow – and on Sunday we’ll very likely go to a Vivaldi concert by a local choir and orchestra in St. Mary’s Church here.
Sounds like wonderful Christmas events to enjoy. Savor the concert!
We shall! 🙂
we go to a show and the staff has a cold gremlin… sounds like fun… or not LOL
Does sound exciting. Stay warm and best of luck!
