I will guard you while you sleep….

I am getting a little obsessed lately with taking pics of Remi and Buddy together, but they are so darn cute!



Oh so cute!!

It really amazes me how much Buddy loves to hang around Remi, and how Remi has taken to him.  Remi was brought up a hunter, chase anything that runs and get it.  When we brought her home just a few short years ago, she didn’t care for our outdoor cats, she wanted to chase them had the mentality “I must eat this”.  But in time, she has learned to “like” them.  Especially Buddy, who sleeps with Remi anywhere and everywhere!



Ok, you look that way and I will look this way and watch for the TV guy to get here……

Alright, so Remi and Buddy aren’t really watching for the TV guy to get here (we are switching TV services again) but I loved the “pose” and had to capture it.



Merry Christmas – to me!!

Look what Santa brought me – a new pair of black patent leather boots!  He put them under the tree early as he knew I really wanted to wear them on New Year’s Eve.  Ok, so that isn’t entirely true.  I ordered these on Monday and thought they wouldn’t ship until December 24.  I was still hoping to get them by NYE as I have ordered from this company before and gotten my boots in 3 days!  I have been searching for black patent leather boots so I was thrilled when I found them.  These make pair # — way too many — but can one have too many boots (no comment Greg!).

Merry Christmas from our brood to yours!!



Chicken Fried

You know I like my chicken fried
A cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up

Zac Brown Band

Ok, so this isn’t fried chicken, but I love the lyrics to that song and they are all so true!  But tonight we did have chicken fried venison with mashed potatoes and gravy along with a side salad.  Can you say YUMMO!!


And the winner is……

For the past several years, we have been invited to a Christmas dance that is hosted by several couples.    Donations of either canned goods or money is given to the local food bank.  Food is provided and at some point in the evening, beer is free!!  And they give out door prizes.  The last prize of the evening was this gorgeous jewelry box that was hand made, and as we were sitting there talking with our friends, I made the comment I sure could use another jewelry box as mine is full.  Well, it came time to announce the winner — Tracy Stasny!!!!  I was shocked (and very pleased at the same time).  This jewelry box is spectacular and craftsmanship is amazing!

Let’s play hide and seek…

I was outside putting up some decorations and put something on the shelf in the garage and looked down and there was Buddy, on one of the blankets that I had stored out there (I keep those for the dogs in the winter).  I guess he made himself a warm, comfy place when it gets cold!
