I usually get crazy the last week before Christmas and I am determined that this year I will not go down that road. So, I am doing what I have time for and what is important, and the rest will fly away like Rudolph and the rest of his pals.
Can't believe the season is already upon us....but glad to see it. I love the true and good things about Christmas and that is what I plan to spend time on this year.
We'll see how it pans out.....
And off we go.....hohoho.....

Well, she is a plump furry baby, but she knows how to hang out and relax!! She is a real hoot.
We got to celebrate.....she has lost 4 pounds.
The Vet was very pleased. Yea! We don't mind her plump figure, but we want her as healthy as possible so she can be with us for as long as possible.

She had GAINED 4 pounds!!!!
What is up with that????
So we put her back on the 'senior formula' dry dog food. We'll see how this works out. But I think she is looking mighty fine here, don't ya think???
Just like me, she doesn't like to exercise and she LOVES to eat. She especially likes anything her humans are eating. So we try to be good and NOT give her tidbits. But, look at that face. I mean, really, could you turn down that look??
We love every pound of her♥♥

Another nature adventure. This time I found the turtle instead of the rabbit. This cute little one was roaming around on the gravel in our dog run. Scout, our fearless dog, was of course afraid of the turtle....
We put the little guy on the trail to a better location as our dog run isn't really a place I'd want to reside if I was a turtle. Not sure how the little critter got in the fenced in area to start with as he was having somewhat of a difficult time getting back out of the fence.
Of course it didn't help to have Scout barking madly at him and me trying to take pics at the same time. I probably would have been rather confused on my exit strategy if all this was going on around ME! Anyway, I enjoyed the little guy. He may not be speedy, but he is very cute.

Remember to say "rabbit, rabbit" on the first of each month for good luck and positive vibes all month long. I don't know where I first heard this or when we started it, but it's fun anyway.

Our neighbor has several butterfly bushes and they are awesome. I was out this morning to get the mail and saw all the butterflies having their 'breakfast'. There was one very large, beautiful golden colored butterfly-really pretty. So I rushed inside for the camera. Of course when I returned it has left. But I still had fun watching these guys and took a few shots.
These are wonderful plants. Pretty and good for the earth at the same time. Great!!
I'm glad our neighbor has provided us with such splendor to enjoy.

I've started to make some nice little scrabble tile magnets. They are a great size and also REALLY strong. The little guys will hold at least 7 sheets of paper to any metal surface. Small, but mighty. More to come in the future......♥♥

I'm just glad I don't have to wear those dresses.
Arghhhh!!! How did they sit down or do anything for that matter.
At least she is lovely, but as for me.....I'm lovin' my jean, sweatpants, t-shirts and dansko shoes.
And I rarely have an umbrella when I need one.

I had my bead boxes stacked on top of each other. It was a real pain to move one box to get to another box underneath it. And it was difficult to really see what beads were in each box. I needed serious bead organization help!!
Now I know most of you beading folks probably have more sophisticated ways to keep your beads organized. I was looking for something inexpensive and this is what I came up with.
I purchased inexpensive letter trays that interlock and stack. Each bead tray slides perfectly in the trays. So now I can slide each one out and easily view the contents. I love it and it was an affordable way for me to get organized. Also purchased the grid system on the wall from the container store. It also helps out a lot. Hope this may give you some organization inspiration.
Have a great weekend.
