December already! The New Year is approaching fast. Where does the time go? It has been a trying time the last couple of months. More pet drama! This time our little pup, she started experiencing pain in her tummy or back end. Blood work showed all normal and she was still eating and going potty on a regular basis. The morphine type meds from the vet didn't work, actually made her more sick then I requested a anti-inflammatory pain killer and got Metacam. Only one dose and she was cured, back to her normal self until 5 days later had a relapse, so another dose and now its been 7 days......knock on wood. I like to write about our pet issues in case there are others out there with the same pet problems who can relate and could learn from what I've learned. The other issues has been dental for myself. These little white teeth can sure cause some PAIN! Couldn't eat for 14 days... all better now and a little weight loss was a bonus.
And finally there was a loss in the family. My husband's 96 year old grandmother, she told it like it is, as she saw it. My kind of woman. RIP
This Christmas season I started decorating early on November 15. I usually wait until the 25th but I couldn't wait to set up our new slim Christmas tree. We have such a small living room and the old tree took up about half the room. 6ft wide on the bottom, it was crazy. So I sold it for what I paid for it and found this full slim tree for cheap. The tree has 400 tips less than our old tree but I did manage to get almost all of the ornaments on this smaller tree.
I do love our tree, filled with things we've grown up with. Ren and Stimpy, Mickey Mouse, Tinkerbell, Batman, The Simpsons, Loony Toons, The Grinch, Rudolph, SpongeBob...etc...
Below is an assortment of Christmas décor I've got in the dining room and kitchen.
Vintage Elf on the Shelf in a Christmas vase filled with vintage balls from Poland.
Deers among the little trees. I wish I could find some more of these bottle brush trees.
Faux deer head from Homesense I got last year.
Vintage Santa mugs.
Collection of Gingerbread men.
So that concludes Christmas around my house for now.
