Snow Day!   4 comments

It’s snowing! Yesterday, it was 65º F, today it’s snowing, and tomorrow the temperature isn’t supposed to get above freezing. Mommy says the snow won’t stick, but the roads will be icy and slick. Weird weather? Yes. But I’m not complaining, because it means mommy is staying home! She’ll be typing away on that stupid computer all day, but she’ll be home with me. Yay!

and thanks to a random act of generosity, my foster mommy is going to become my furever mommy. A total stranger wanted to see me stay in a good home so he donated money to the rescue group to pay my adoption fees. isn’t that neat?

So… mommy home with me ALL DAY, SNOW, and Official Fureverdom! it’s been a monumental kind of day

Greetings, all!

Like efurryone in the US and Canada, we are suffering through very cold temperatures right now. Mommy has set practically every faucet in the house on a trickle after coming home to discover the kitchen pipes not quite frozen, but darn close. It didn’t take long to defrost them and apparently no harm done, but a disaster averted nonetheless! Still, quite a concession from the woman who wakes up from a sound sleep whenever she hears water dripping. Gonna have to wear earplugs if she wants to sleep tonight!

Miss D is so cold, she’s shivering as she leans into Mommy, cuddling on the couch. Mommy heard no complaints as she slid the UNC sweater over Miss D’s head and gave her hips an extra long rub down. Needless to say, neither of us is interested in patrolling the neighborhood tonight.

The electric company has asked customers to conserve energy for the next 24 hours, such as turning the thermostat down a couple of degrees, especially overnight. Meanwhile the water company has warned customers about freezing pipes and suggests we turn the thermostat up a couple of degrees and leave it at that constant temperature even overnight. WTF!!!

So we’re leaving the thermostat alone, and set a fire burning in the fireplace. We’ve turned off and unplugged as many appliances as we can, leaving only the TV and a  candle or two for light (and the Christmas tree, b/c Mommy was feeling too lazy to take it down after Twelfth Night).

Happy New Year, efurryone! We’re starting the year off with a bang!

No, really, a BANG! The water heater broke and we were without hot water from Christmas to New Year’s Eve! But mommy decided it was time to get rid of that old tank anyway and start the year fresh with a tankless heater. We had men stomping around the house all day on New Year’s Eve. I made sure to bark at them every chance I got to remind them that this is my house and I won’t stand for any nonsense.

I must have been a very good doggie, because Santa and all my doggie friends sent me some awesome swag! Look at all the new plushies! Yippee!

I have already carried each of them through the house and around the yard and up onto my favorite chair. The red & white felt Santa is very shakeable while the moose is just the right size to carry by his antler without tripping over his feet. They all receive the Miss D Seal of Approval!

May your new year be filled with joy, love, and all the plushies you desire!
