On Dasher, On Dancer...


So how's your week going? It doesn't seem like a typical Christmas to us. I REALLY need to wrap presents today - hubby and I still haven't done this.

Both of our daughters and their significant others are coming for dinner tomorrow night - that will be fun! On the menu: smoked pork butt, buns and barbecue sauce, corn casserole, slaw, snickers salad, chips, and dessert. (You heard that correctly - a salad made with Snickers candy bars - never made it, but I've heard it's delicious.)

We are adjusting to the loss of Prince, though my lap feels half empty. Mickey has slept in the same crate with Prince for his entire life, snuggled under an old quilt with him. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and could hear Mickey crying. Yes, I went and got him and snuggled with him the rest of the night. He is having the hardest time with this.

I'm all but finished with the new issue of Hexie Love ! Just a couple of tweaks to make today and I'll call it done! Happy Dance!

We are having a rainy day - good to stay in and get some things done!

  1. So sorry at your loss and Mickey will feel the loss for sure too.
    Years in rescue has shown me its often helpful to allow the companion animals smell the deceased pal before burial, although that's not always possible of course. It gives them closure too that wy. Try giving Mickey one of your worn ( as in scent not worn out!) t shirts to snuggle into at night.
    Love that arched hexi!

  2. So sorry for your loss of Prince and Mickey's loss as well.

    It is warm in Texas so it is not typical Texas weathet. Looking forward to when we can order the new hexie ruler and paper and read the new Hexie Love.

  5. Oh, it just makes your own heartbreak even worse when we see how our other babies are mourning too. Poor Mickey! :( How is Cooper doing with it?
    Here in Wisconsin we have had weather in th 40s and are expecting 50s for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Unheard of up here after October and before April! We're enjoying it but holding our breath and waiting to get creamed by a few feet of snow!
