All is calm... all is bright

At this moment the wind is howling and it is snowing. Looks like we will have a white Christmas this year, which is rare. I am tucked inside, all my shopping done, listening to Christmas music finishing the present wrapping. I wish you a holiday of peace and joy.

I checked my Christmas list.... you two weren't on it...

The other evening just before dark, just as I was finishing up feeding my furry loved ones, I saw headlights down at my gate. Now, no one should be there on this particular nite so I started walking up my road towards them. I live a bit off of the main road, so I have a little walk to get to my gate. I saw someone pass from the passenger side of the vehicle to get back in the driver's side. They backed away and took off before I could get close enough to see what they were doing. I walked on up to my gate to check things over, then saw two small shapes red, and black moving around. With a look that could kill, complete with mental daggers, I glanced in the direction of the escaping suv and muttered under my breath, they have dumped two dogs.
Sadly, that happens a lot, the reason I have a small herd of dogs. As I got closer, I realized these were not dogs, but a red rooster and a little black hen. Incredulous, I just kept saying to myself, who dumps chickens???? And the old standby " This could only happen to me." Well I had to round them up for their own safety, so after some crawling around under my cedars for the hen, I finally had them both secured.
They have since gone to a proper chicken friendly home, much to the disappointment of my dogs. As one of my co-workers stated, " Isn't it always the way, people giving you something you really don't want for Christmas."

Oh Christmas tree......

Did, or are you putting up a tree this year? Mine is this smaller tree set up in a shabby chic urn. My tree is decorated in silver, turquoise and white, with only white or silver horses, one black one to represents Indi. I mixed vintage and new, and love that look. I wish the photos would show it as pretty as it turned out. There will be an old pull toy horse under it soon, and if I would get some wrapping done, a few gifts too! Hope you are getting the holiday spirit!!!
