Bruiser ~ Hal ~ Yukon ~ Parfaits

Good 46º cloudy morning. We got a bunch more rain yesterday.

Ok, back on the radar and feeling back to 'normal'. Thanks for all the concern from so many of you! It's so appreciated to hear people care. Love all you guys!!!

So, yesterday was a big nothing. I did, however, clean out the cage and get Bruiser's 'stuff' organized back on the porch. His bed on the glider and his food out. He didn't do well with the cat box, made a big mess, so now he's back to the great outdoors for his pottying.

Maggie got off her bed and Bruiser took over!

Sort of like me, when I'm in my chair and Harley is on my lap and I have to get up......he takes over my chair!

Today was the birthday, 1929, of my dear friend Patty's brother and my special friend, Hal. RIP Hal you are missed.

Today, four years ago I lost my sweet Yukon. RIP buddy. I miss you a lot. The most gentle sweetest dog ever!!! Always wagging his tail and when I'd sit he'd put his head on my lap. Sigh..............

Ok, enough mushy stuff...
Christmas is 1 MONTH away! Best get to gettin'. Working on projects already. Kristen ... Jen .... pictures please!!!
