Welcome Winter!!

Finally our winter is here. All the warm temps have spoiled us so badly that the 30 degree drop feels worse than it really is. We had a high of 32 today. I know compared to some folks that is pretty warm, but it's COLD to me!! Especially with the wind blowing. I took Pup out for a walk and here he is in his cute little sweater. He doesn't like it much. I ended up taking it off him before we got home. He was thrilled about that. He's just not used to wearing clothes and he can't feel as free with them on I guess! We have had some snow flurries today.

My Christmas cactus is blooming. It's late. I guess that's because I repotted it this year. Then it grew quite a bit and is late blooming. It has many buds on it coming out, plus the ones already bloomed. The cat decided this was a good place for a nap.

Keep warm folks and here's a joke to end this post with!

A man went to the dental surgeon to have a tooth pulled.
The dentist pulled out a freezing needle to numb the area. "No way! No needles! I hate needles!" the patient shouted.
The dentist started to hook up the laughing gas and the man again objected. "I can't do the gas thing! The thought of having a gas mask on is suffocating to me!"
The dentist then asked if the man had any objection to taking a pill. "No," the patient said, "I am fine with pills."
The dentist said, "Here is a Viagra tablet." The patient replied: "Wow! I didn't know Viagra works as a pain pill!"
"It doesn't," said the dentist, "but it will give you something to hold onto when I pull out your tooth."

Haha, very funny joke, I'll tell that one to my husband! Ooh, you know, I am actually quite envious of your cold weather - it's far too mild here in England!

1. Rachel. It's winter. Your pup probably would have been happy with something in black. This spring a nice pastel would be good.
2. The joke. Did we hear that one in church?? Good one.

When I was growing up, we had a dachshund that HATED sweaters. When we put them on him, he would freeze and refuse to move until we took it off him. :)
