Sad News

January 16, 2014 - Pat and I have just returned from Ontario Canada. Last week I received some expected news. Rosemary, my Cuz, had a stroke. If anyone would have the strength and determination to make it back after a stroke it would be Rose. But then heart-breaking news came, the doctors say she will not recover from this.

Rosemary passed away on Saturday morning with her husband, son and daughter-in-law by her side. I was devastated by this news. Rosemary has been my rock through the good and bad times in my life. She will be missed by all who knew her.

This was a photo we had done many, many moons ago.

Yeah! Pat is Home.

January 9, 2014 – Mom picked Pat up at the airport the other night. She said she had a wonderful time visiting family in Sweden. Molly and I didn’t see her until yesterday when she surprised us by coming to the Spa to pick us up. I should have known that something was up because Molly and I had a bath. My tail wagged so fast when I saw her. Pat worked from home, so we got to share her lap throughout the day.

Mom was out to an embroidery class. Not sure what that is, but I think it has something to do with the big noisy machine in one of our bedrooms.

So happy is it getting warmer – it was 22 degrees this morning. Down right balmy compared to the other day when it was 7!

Have a great day!

Baby It’s Cold Outside!

January 7, 2014 – Molly and I are at the Spa and we woke  up this morning to the thermometer saying it was 7 degrees and I heard Jennifer (the nice lady who owes the spa) say the weatherman said the wind-chill is making it feel like –10 or so. Mom has been talking about how our friends to the north and west have it much worse, but this is really cold for NC.  At least it is a beautiful sunny day, but I think Molly and I will be staying inside today.

Mom told me that Pat arrives home this afternoon and will be a balmy 18 degrees. Mom will definitely have the seat warmers on for sure. Molly and I are looking forward to seeing her.

Stay safe and warm out there.

Pat is Coming Home tomorrow!

January 6, 2014 – Mom says that Pat is coming home tomorrow night, so Molly and I have to go to the Spa to get all pretty. I think the plan is for us to stay overnight. Mom has some errands to do today. Hope she stops at Phydeaux in Chapel Hill to buy us some goodies.

Stay warm out there!

52 Week Challenge

January 3, 2014 – Happy New Year!

Mid December Mom came across this on Facebook and she is going to set up a jar and put money in it weekly.

Apparently, every week you put the the dollar amount of the week it is in the year. You save $1, week two you save $2, and so on.  By the end of your 52 weeks you will have saved $1,378.00.

52 Week Money Challenge Chart

So all you need to do is start a jar and one dollar....Are you game for the 52 Week Money Challenge?  What will you use your money for? I am voting for more chew sticks or cookies (for me – none for Molly!)

Happy saving!
