from our quiet little house to yours

Out with the old, in with the new,
may you be happy the whole year through.

…and another quiet holiday was had in our house.

No loud music, no crowds to push through, no wild parties here or any where on the block. Not even a rambunctious game of Monopoly!

Just a quiet time reading, watching Times Square on TV, crocheting, playing with the doggies, taking a few pictures, and enjoying a late night snack… We did hear one boom at midnight as someone in the distance set off a lone firework. I guess that’s what happens when a holiday falls on a workday.

The most excitement of the night around here was running Bella Dog and Pablo Dog in and out in the cold. Why doesn’t the cold bug them as much as it bugs me?? Bella seems to enjoy it! Maybe I need a furry black coat like theirs to keep me warm this year.

…from our quiet little house to yours…
we wish you all a very happy 2015!


Labor Day – The Last Long Weekend Of Summer

It’s Labor Day! – the last long weekend of summer. Do you have big plans for today?

We plan to just hang around the house and relax, stay in out of the hot weather, watch a little TV, crochet a little, throw some hot dogs and/or burgers on the grill, cook up that fresh corn on the cob, and hopefully take the Canon for a walk.

Yep; that sounds like a good way to spend a day off.
I hope everyone else is also having a relaxing day!
