Photos from Christmas 2015 and Early 2016

I have been so busy I haven't been posting. I know I play too many Facebook games and am trying to wean myself off those. I get so much more done not wasting time doing stupid things!

While looking at my photos I and past blog posts I realized I haven't posted any of the dogs during the holidays or really any other time. So, here are a few from then and later in January.
The Christmas tree
I had bought Luna a nice Serta dog bed from Sam's Club because it was a great deal, it has great cushioning for the arthritic older dog, and also cooling gel. I should have bought 2 because Ziggy decided he wanted it for himself.

My wonderful sister-in-law, Hal's sister, went and got me another at a different SC, when the first store no longer had any. Now they are content.
 Although, occasionally, Ziggy still wants to be wherever Luna is. Especially if she is eating something.

 Lyra came to visit at Christmas, of course.
  Ziggy snoozing happily on his bed.
For some reason I can't remember, Luna panicked Christmas morning and just had to climb onto my lap to be rescued. Poor thing is such a nervous Nellie!

Was Cold Again, but No Longer

The weekend turned cold. One night it dropped to 32.5, no idea about last night, but cold, I had to turn the heat up in the house this morning, it had dropped to 66, haven't had to do that in a couple of weeks. But spring is here for the most part though things are behind the schedule by a couple of weeks. Even the trees are late leafing out. Usually by the 15th the maples have leaves about half the final size, not this year. This year they are barely a half inch across. I keep thinking perhaps the Earth has shifted on its axis a bit, but it's probably only the fault of El Nino.

But now it's almost 1 pm, the rain showers have stopped and it's a lovely 61 F outside. The pups will want their second walk soon, so I'd better sign off for now.
