I’m glad you have stopped by. Sit down and I’ll grab us a cup of coffee.
I just don’t know where the time goes. Wasn’t it just Thanksgiving? I feel like I spend my life rushing though time. I think it’s because I am working in retail. In August we had back to school…before that promotion was over we were into the Halloween stuff. Then before we even finished with that it we were getting Christmas stuff in along with Thanksgiving product on the shelves. Christmas wasn’t over when the Valentine push started and today at work I caught a glimpse of the Wearing of the Green! And I might mention, we had a shipment of Mardi Gras decorations that was stocked last week! It’s just plain crazy
I would think I would be getting used to it since I have been working at the store for three years now, but I’m not. You know what is funny to me? I am sounding more and more like my parents. I always thought that you didn’t turn into your parents until you were old. I mean I am a mere 71 years young. So, how is this happening to me? Well enough of my complaining.
I am happy to be blogging again. I really missed it. I had my daughter here with me for a while and it kept me from my little hobbies. I am on my own again so look out blogosphere I will be blogging my little heart out. At least I hope to be doing so.
In my absence I adopted a puppy. Her name is Dixie. She’s a chihuahua min pin mix. She will be celebrating her first birthday on the 24th of this month. I love her to death, but I have to wonder whatever possessed me to get a puppy! What a lot of work! My Gracie who will be 9 in September was two when I adopted her. She was calm, sweet, trained, and quiet. Dixie on the other hand needed to be house trained, needs to calm down and likes to chew, but she is too sweeet. What great fun right? Below is a pic of my two girls. Dixie on the top and Gracie on the bottom. About 20 pounds of dog that take up almost the entire bed! 🙂 They do keep me on my toes and give me such joy.
The weather here has been crazy. Lasts week it was 70 and the trees started to bud. Which, by the way caused my allergies to rear their angry heads. Today we are back to the low 40’s and it’s cold! Not cold like back in Pennsylvania, but after being in the south for over 20 years my body feels cold.
Not much else is new this week. I am going to have a mini vacation next week. I have four days off in a row and am looking forward to doing a little house cleaning, photography, and maybe some sewing. Just a stay at home and enjoy time for me.
