Playdate for Pooches

Sorry about this blog going to the dogs a couple times in a row, but Teddy and Daphne were lucky enough to have their friend Angel stop by for a visit today.  Angel is a high-energy yellow lab mix, and she always gives Teddy a run for his money – and he definitely needed it today.  He has been rather mopey this week.  As some bitter cold temps dipped in for a visit this week, that made me, or anyone else in the family, pretty much unwilling to go outside and play or go for a walk.  The sun came out and it was a bit milder today,  so I ventured out for some pictures with our guest.

Angel speaks softly and carries a big stick.

Daphne decided to stick with a small stick.

Break time!

Back inside the house, Angel’s mama wanted her to try on the antlers that Teddy wore a couple weeks ago.

This evening, Teddy and Daphne were pooped from their exciting visit!

In other news, I’m trying to be organized!  I am the hostess of Christmas dinner for the family next Saturday.  Just a week away, can you believe it?  So I started today trying to figure out what I need food-wise over the next 9 days (including tonight, which was Rustic Pizza from Papa Gino’s! Mmmmm)  See here’s my chicken-scratch plan I mapped out today:

I also negotiated with Meghan to get some house cleaning done while I am work next week.  We made a deal that works for both of us. Have I mentioned how jealous I am that our town’s school district is already out on Christmas break, while the district that I work for has to go all the way til Thursday?

I think I’m done Christmas shopping, but I still have to wrap.  Christmas Eve will be spent prepping, cooking and cleaning.  Today, I got around to putting up a downsized version of my Christmas Village:

More pictures and stories about the Village coming tomorrow!
