Get well soon, dawg!!

Fall is so close!

I use the Leaf Peeper app, and can see where foliage is turning all over the U.S. It's really cool! I peep about our area, too. We're starting to get some color here. Yay!!

Woke up this morning with the outside temps in the 50s. so between Christmas shopping yesterday and the chilly temps .. I am really feeling the Christmas itch!

Well lunch is almost over. Have a great day everyone!

And with this post, Christmas Star is poster # 40,000. For her efforts, she wins something so special. At first it was going to be having the Merry Maids help her with her fall cleaning. But I just could not find anyone in her area. So, the next best thing is an article from the October issue of Family Circle entitled "Spotless Made Simple." Those helpful hints are much better than the Merry Maids who did not receive good reviews!!! Congratulations, Star!!!

She just ate most of her dinner, and drank more water today. She has been resting more than usual, but it is probably for the best. 💜
We will go for a walk soon!
