It's cold out there! Brrrr!
Sunday we got a little bit of snow - nothing all that measurable but it's been so cold since that it hasn't melted.
The back porch is icy in spots. Bandit's lead that I clip him to when he goes outside froze in an ice puddle. Trying to get it to open, I wound up breaking the clip. So at lunch yesterday I went to Petco and picked him up a new one.
I never seem to get the right length. The one he had before was too long and he'd often wrap himself around a tree. Now the one I got yesterday is too short. He only has 12 feet. I'll have to pick him up another one to add onto it.
While I was at Petco, I stopped by the grooming salon and left a Christmas card and Dunkin Donuts gift card for his groomer. She was at lunch but the girl behind the counter left it at her station.
I wrote out a bunch of Christmas cards. I used to send upwards of 40 or so. Now I pretty much just send to immediate family and those that care enough to send me one. I love getting cards. I used to go all out and each year get several boxes of Hallmarks in early September or October when the best are still available. This year I just got two Hallmark packages and then some handmade ones I found at a craft fair. Maybe I'll send out more. After all the more you give; the more you get. The ones I really wanted to send were Charlie Brown cards that when you open plays the Vince Guaraldi theme song. They wanted $22 for 6! Even with the buy one package get the other at 50% was too much.
Anyway, I should get ready to get ready. Over and out...
P.S. Bandit says hello from the warm confines of his comfy pillows.
