I swear I will never again complain about being cold in sunny California. I guess I'm just spoiled with good weather most of the year, AND I get to spend time in the sunny warm desert as well. After Jim posted about he and Barb's day of -22 degrees while their floor heating system coughed and spit, I have absolutely NOTHING to complain about.
It was a dog day ... mostly spent catering to the dog. Yes I love Christmas and no, that's not my tree. Well it WAS my tree, but I didn't put it up this year. That's a whole lot more work than I was motivated to do, only to take it down two weeks later. Cooper really doesn't have an opinion on "tree" or "no tree". That's probably better since he does love to water the trees.
This is him bragging to his buddy Halo. Yes, there are squeakers in every one of those balls he chews up. I find them spit out on the floor all the time. At least he doesn't EAT them.
Sweet Halo came by for a visit yesterday. He just loves to water my trees too, and always runs up on the porch to look in my side windows to see his buddy. Cooper of course goes crazy! Halo and his Mom were invited in to play. He and Cooper ran around the house smelling EVERYTHING! He's such a sweet boy .......
And so is his Mom who brought a bag of goodies over for me. Have you ever heard of bunuelos? I have not, although I think I've seen the gadget you use to make them. They are like super crunchy sugar coated churros. YUM!!! I tried to show great restraint and only ate one. Okay, maybe two!!
Along with that came some tamales WITH sauce and white chocolate covered popcorn. What a sweet neighbor. They completely make up for the "other" side of the tracks. On the way out, Halo got the zoomies. You can't help but laugh at these kids.
Cooper's Christmas stocking surprise also arrived. It just kills me when they send such a tiny package in such a large box. Nothing else .... just the snacks. I imagine Santa will put them in Coop's stocking tonight as he flies over. We have requested another ball, so hopefully Cooper has been a good boy for Santa.
Jonathan's only request was more HEAT!! I made it to the closest grocery store to get him a surprise banana and fresh Cole slaw. Too bad it was dated 12/20. I won't tell him if you don't.
I'm doing absolutely nothing today ... watch a little TV, or maybe a LOT of TV, sew a little, play with the kid since it's Christmas Eve and worry about ice cream.
Cooper, Jonathan and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas Eve.
Remember the reason for the season!! Christ is born!

Indy has had her Squeaky Squirrel for over two years now. The Squeaker in tail has not worked for well over a year, but the one in the head is still fine. She has not torn it up, and it has been through the washer a couple of times now.
Enjoy your Christmas Nancy.
Wow ... good for Indy!! None of Cooper's squeakers last THAT long! Merry Christmas to you and Marcia!Delete

Merry Christmas! We do chuckle when we see people in Arizona all bundled up in 40 degree weather. We are going to hit 40 this week and are looking forward to it!ReplyDelete
I guess cold is relative! I definitely prefer the Arizona kind!!Delete
