Joie survived his grooming, and so did the groomer! Though I think they will charge more next time for all his squirming. It was nice to know he was just outside in the van for an hour rather than across town all day.His eyes are really bad though...probably from the new food the vet put him on that he was allergic too. We caught the ear problems but with all the hair in his eyes we couldn't see the redness. The groomer was concerned but we assured her we didn't know it was that bad - I feel so bad for little Joie - he has to wear the dreaded cone collar and we will be making another trip to the vet on Monday.

I am trying to get used to a new keyboard - my ergonomic was too big for my new desk keyboard tray. This one is very flat and compact...it was Dad's and I put large letters on the keys so he could read them!

I also made some real headway on my craft room. I got all the cake decorating stuff put away into the closet as I won't be using it for awhile. That helped a lot to make it less cluttered! Still a ways to go but it is getting there!

Drinking lots of coffee since being home as it has really tired me out

May go and recline on the lounge for awhile now

They are in a crunchy base and in that is the Mars Bar caramel topped with chocolate

New to me, they look really good!

We got home from a party a while ago. Oh boy am I glad that we aren't going to any more parties this season - too many drunks on the road.

My sister's family had a greyhound, Tippa. She chased a lot of rabbits while sleeping. I never saw her catch any though. She was also a good mouser. The only problem, when she would catch a field mouse, she would deposit it as a gift on the porch right in front of the door. A very thoughtful dog.

I am sitting here shaking a container with coconut flakes and green coloring for the Christmas Wreath cake for my daughter's party on the 24th. I used the gel coloring and it is harder to mix than the liquid coloring. Next I have to make the Royal Frosting to make the trees and holly leaves. AHA! I just had a brain storm. I have surgical gloves. I will put one on and mix it that way.

I can't decide if I want to make a cream cheese frosting or a butter-cream one.

Seems we were both up with our furbabies last night MrsLMB! It was Joie's first full night with the cone collar and he wasn't too happy about it. He kept scraping it along my side of the bed, wanting up, wanting down, trying to get it off. He is sleeping peacefully now on their bed in my office.
