The last couple of days I've been in crazy panic mode to get stuff done. The main task has been getting cookie tins filled for certain people. I'm like a psychotic Martha Stewart. Or a damn Keebler elf

The calendar claims it's still Fall but it sure feels like winter here! A frigid blast of winter weather has left us with a couple of days with temps in the minus 30's. Yes, I said minus....... This mornings weather online
Look at the "feels like" temp........BrrrrrrrrNot much happening today outside. Abby and I stayed in and cleaned for awhile. But eventually she would have to go out so being the stylish pup she is, we dressed in the trendy (and super warm) LL Bean Field Jacket

I travelled to the family holiday cookie exchange today. It was a perfect travel day, although the rest of the week is sounding like a winter mess. Not only were there guests inside but also some visitors in the backyard.

Ahh, such a relaxing and productive weekend! Our first winter nor'easter storm arrived today. Cold, windy, rain and then snow that is sticking. Not enough to shovel, just enough to blanket the ground. Loving that new fireplace today! It was just enough to get me blasting the Christmas music and dragging out the decorations

I'm happy to report Miss Abby is acting more like her frisky self today. She was much more playful, although playtime is shorter she still brought me a toy to throw many times today.

I had planned on updated you on the progress of the renovation but that will wait. Poor little Miss Abby is sick. I came home Wednesday from work and the den(her room) was covered in a mess, bloody diarrhea and then there was another pool of just blood on the other side. I freaked out. It was a significant amount of blood. I thought she was dying! I grabbed her and we raced to the Vet Clinic. After a series of tests everything was fine except she had a fever. We worried there might be an obstruction inside but X-rays were clear. Thank God! It seems it is some kind of gastrointestinal infection. We came home with 3 prescriptions and some special canned food.

A dear follower Kelley brought something terrible to my attention.....I finally blogged after a long absence and completely ignored Miss Abby. I'm a bad mother. Well, Miss Abby is certainly happy to have me home more. "Please throw the toy a thousand times Mom"
Just back from the groomers and another walk and it's time for a little nap. "Don't forget to fluff my pillows Mom"

Hi guys! I'm still here. It's been a wild couple of months but as of tonight I can start getting back to normal. My "special project" at work is done. I am the chief electoral officer for our town, a task I have done for the past 20 years. I thought I had seen it all until this election, which was held yesterday. I have NEVER been involved with anything like this one. It was the most vicious, controversial mess I've ever seen. At times it made the US presidential race seem like child's play. I was insulted, threatened and spit on. Many other staff were threatened as well. On top of this I was working day and night for weeks, including weekends. I'm exhausted but I survived and managed to come out unscathed. I may have worn out my "big girl panties" because I had to wear them a lot. Lol But we have a brand new Mayor and 5 new councillors so I'm hopeful the wounds created recently in town can heal. I arrived at work yesterday at 6:30am with my team and we didn't leave until midnight. I then had to pick up Abby at the neighbors, who graciously babysat her for the day. Today I've just tried to rest up a bit and regroup. Thanks to those of you who checked up on me. I'm baaaaaack 😄

Sometimes circumstances make us feel differently than we could have imagined. Case in point - you've rarely heard me say what I said multiple times today.........."Yay, it's raining!" And it's supposed to rain all weekend and I'm happy about it.

Yesterday we had an Artisans Market downtown. I planned to stay away because I am beyond broke and have no self control but a friend convinced me to go with her. I made 2 tiny purchases so that wasn't too bad. I could not resist the little pottery tea bag holder. Isn't it cute?
