Assess snow situation from front steps. Frolic joyfully. Find the elusive stick! Give lots of kisses to our knight-in-shining-fleece.   Happy Thanksgiving Week everyone!

I got my free November Sample Box from Foodzie this morning, and it did not disappoint. For one thing, you should know that I jump up and down whenever I receive a package of any sort in the mail. It’s like Christmas! So that, in addition to waffles with MR, made my Saturday morning just […]
