I volunteered today at the animal shelter. It was 60 degrees out today, so nice. I think it will probably be the last nice day that I have walking dogs. There were so many volunteers today that all the dogs were walked by 11:00am & I really didn't have anything to do. I went to the cat area (where I really want to be) & asked if they needed help, but they had just finished & were leaving. So I went & checked out the ferrets, Chinchillas & guinea pigs.
This is Daisy, a 7 year old german shepherd. She was very sweet. If anyone is looking for a nice older dog.

Remember Lola, the sheepdog looking poodle, that I walked last week?

Well this is her now. I was so sad to see her like this. She looks sick & frail now. Like a totally different dog. I do think that she could have been trimmed a bit, but this much?

This & That

Photo from We heart it.

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next Thursday? We are getting ready to host at our house again this year. It will be a short week, next week. Tara has school Monday & Tuesday & then is off for the rest of the week. It looks like it might snow on Wednesday & we might have some friends come over. I feel like I might be getting a cold. My nose has been stuffy & so itchy. I feel like I am breathing dust. My throat is scratchy. So I stayed in today & did some housework & caught up on a few shows on the dvr, "Vanderpump Rules" & "Housewives of Beverly Hills". I had a zinc & Emergen C drink. I'm going to stay in again tomorrow & rest up for the upcoming week. Our X-mas cards shipped this morning, so I will be working on those this week & mailing them out soonish. I'd like to wait until Dec. 1st to mail them out. I mail photo cards 1st & then regular cards once I run out. I need to get a few more gifts to mail out to friends in other states. I want to get them out early this year. So that is it for now. Hope you are all having a great weekend!!!

Nail Files. Week # 180

This week I changed my nails a few times. I wasn't really happy with my nails that I did a few days ago. I bought this China Glaze polish today & painted my nails tonight with it. It is called High Hopes. I saw someone post a pic of this polish on Instagram last weekend & went out & got it.

I switched my day to Tuesday, that I volunteer at the animal shelter. I walked this dog Lola today. She was so cute. It said that she was part poodle. She looked a lot like a sheep dog, I thought. I always loved sheep dogs. She kept rolling around & wanted me to rub her belly.

I went to visit the cats. I fell in love with this guy Mickey. He's 9 years od. He was so friendly & affectionate. His fur was so soft. I would love to take him home. I got this photo from the website.

New England Minute~Vermont

I went to Vermont this past weekend with some friends for a scrapbooking weekend. We got up there on Friday night & got a few pages done. 3 of us went up on Friday & 3 came up on Saturday. That night we went to the town Woodstock. It's become a tradition. They have cute shops & cool restaurants/bars. Some of my friends did some Christmas shopping. The weekend went way too fast.

7 years old is a crazy age. Tara is 7 now & she is like a mini-teenager. She's gotten so fresh & disrespectful. I'm not sure how to deal with this. She has been disrespectful for the past 4 years. So we really need to change things fast. I want to stop it before things get too bad & she is older. Any advice? If you have a girl around this age is she like that?
