Early morning shadows

What is it? Can you guess?

It’s a fuzzy puppy head, that’s what! Miss Bella of course with her puppy hairdo. Before too awfully long her puppy fuzz will begin to fade and she’s start looking like someone with a receding hairline. Oh boy, the geek stage is soon to arrive.

I have new videos of her to share but Rick has them on his computer and we just haven’t had time to sit down and edit them so he can send them over to my computer. I hope you won’t be bored with them.

She is a joy! Even though she cramps my style a bit (I am bound pretty close to home) she is worth every second. As time goes by I’ll be able to leave her for longer periods of time, but right now a little over three hours is her limit. Considering that I live about 45 minutes from almost everywhere (except the grocery store) that doesn’t leave much time for whatever I am doing once I get there. Yesterday I took her and the big dogs with me on my shopping errands. We stopped in and visited Daddy Rick at work and she got to walk around and see everybody there. She was a real little trooper and just slept in her crate while I went into stores.

Tomorrow night we have tickets to the opera at the Met. We’ve engaged Luke (who watches the kitties whenever we’re gone) to babysit for the evening as we’ll be gone a long time. I’ll worry a bit like any new mother, but I know she’ll be just fine.

We have heavy frosts every night now with temperatures dipping down into the 20s. We’ve enjoyed seeing the moon with Venus and Jupiter by its side, but alas when I finally realized what I was seeing after three or four nights in a row, last night Venus and Jupiter were nowhere to be seen. So, no photos but many other bloggers managed to get good ones. The first night I only saw two bright points of light and thought maybe they were UFOs or a radio antenna I didn’t know was in that position in the sky. duh! I think I even asked Rick. They were so bright!

I just can’t seem to get into gear for Christmas. I used to love it so. These days not so much. I guess I’ll have to force myself to start doing Christmas-y things. I need to be baking cookies, playing Christmas music, decking the hallway and all that jazz. But instead all I can think about is the drudgery of un-decorating and putting it all away. What’s the point? I’m totally disgusted with myself. bah humbug.

Okay. Stop. Enough mindless rambling for this morning. New Bella videos coming soon!



I will puppy sit Bella if you were in CT!! No more Bah Hum Bug…you have Bella now to get into things, I mean trouble, it should be fun!  Loving these pictures!
