Woke up this morning to heavy frost but sunny skies! Such a beautiful day! Thoroughly enjoyed the day off yesterday (November 11th is a stat holiday in Newfoundland) and since just about everything closes for the day the whole town seemed more relaxed.
I haven't exercised in a few days and I'm feeling a bit down because of it. I am working this morning and then have volunteered to decorate a local car dealership for Christmas this afternoon and tomorrow. In lieu of pay, they will give a donation to Central Paws Humane society which is the only reason I got myself involved in decorating. I'm not the most creative person around so my attempts at stringing up beads, garland, lights don't always look festive! Ha!
I've got a cute dog story to make you all smile...or at least I hope it does. I got up this morning and found Louisa (Lou) staring at me with a stuffed toy across her face. She lit right up when she saw that I was awake and took off to the living room where she proceeded to squeak her toy very loudly. Maddy stumbled out of the bedroom when he heard the patio door open so witnessed Lou racing out across the frost covered boards and sliding into the BBQ! At first she looked back at me but then she looked at her feet as if to say "how did that happen". So there I was, outdoors on a frosty morning wearing my husband's robe and.....get this......high heel shoes....(I had left them out after I tried them on yesterday with my "goal" outfit) laughing my head off at Lou. Of course, this wound her up even more and she was racing across the garden barking on top of her lungs just because she could. Maddy was just making his way back up the patio steps (he is NOT a morning dog) when Lou barrelled into him and sent him flying across the slippery boards. The expressions on their faces was hilarious! Maddy looked indignant and Lou looked like "can we do that again?"
Anyway, have a great day and please remember to enjoy the little things in life!
