Final Letter of 2015

Dear Fabulous Few,

It has been a week ... Funny how quickly the time has moved since we got Christmas out of the way! 

Monday DH took Jack and Jill in for their annual drain on the budget. To hear him tell it, things got a little hairy. Neither dog was impressed by their visit. Jill got terrified and escaped her halter, spreading her stool sample all over the office. Meanwhile Jack was off in a different direction. Guess they have some new vaccine(?) that goes in their nose - Jack growled at the woman and Jill wasn't wanting any part of it. At least the ride report was a good one!

Since all the wind and rain has slacked off, the birds are back. It's mostly cardinals right now. It's nice to see that red flashing out there in the ruins of Sparrow Hall and my window sill.

Father and Son went to see the new Star Wars movie yesterday, in Huntsville. Senior discount was a whole 50 cents! Wow, how generous is that? I guess they had a good time and went out to eat as well. They played with the wii some more before son went home. (Glad to see it being used for a change)

DH is shopping - finding the Christmas things he missed before. Stollen, three kinds. Wonder what else he will find? Nothing quite as good as a thick slice of stollen, toasted and smothered with real butter, and then chased by some good hot chocolate.

No real plans for tonight, maybe a glass (small) of wine before we turn in early. There will be no reflecting on the past year - I can't remember half of it anyway. 

Wishing you and yours a healthy and happy year to come. I'm sure we will have more of the same ... Stay warm, stay safe!

  3. I agree that Stollen is delicious. We used get home made when my paternal aunt was alive. Nothing is ver as good as hers. All the best in 2016

    1. I used to make it myself. One year I took a loaf on the plane with me and when the people at the gate opened my bag, their faces lit up! Guess the smell is universal!

  5. Vets are a necessity with pets even tho others say otherwise. Luckily all the cats I've had 'enjoyed' their visits.
    I'm sure The New Year that will be arriving at your house soon Sharon will be kind to both you and your family. It came to our house while we were sleeping - no noise, arrived just like that. It promised to be better than the previous one so we have 12 months to find out :)

  10. Happy new Year. I have plans for Star Wars myself, but we didn't get to it while Mark was off on vacation. I might have to snatch one of the grands up to go with me.

I've taken a long break. Sorry. Using comment moderation, I think.
