A Few Random Thoughts: Snow, Millie and Snow, Meals, Happy Thanksgiving
Soon very soon, it will be Christmas. If you’re into the gift-giving season, well... you better get your hurry on in the purchasing and/or making of those Christmas gifts. I know that was mean, but I needed the reminder and I dragged you into it. Sorry about that.
We had our first snow on Saturday, a heavy dusting, enough to make you say brrr, but that could have been the 29 degree morning temp outside and wind gusts. And perhaps that is why Millie Dog Coltrin (who liked snow last year) reacted to the newest weather condition as if she had just been born yesterday.
This was my FB post/status thingy:
Millie had forgotten about snowflakes, how they drift from the sky, swirl in your face and hit you in the eyes. Surrounded by its chaotic dance, Millie tried dodging the invasion of both large and small flakes by running sideways, spinning in circles and blinking fast, but finally gave up the fight to do her business.
Back inside the house, she inspected her fur coat and even between her toes to find any leftover invaders, but Millie found none. Those scalawags had disappeared.
Her anxious eyes say that round two should begin soon, as she forgot to do one of her businesses. Oh, Millie.
I spent a day and a half last week phoning potential families to see if they wanted to receive a Thanksgiving meal basket put together by our HS student council. I’m always nervous when I contact parents to see if I can help them and in this case hook them up with a Thanksgiving meal. Sometimes they want me to butt out of their business, but offering a Thanksgiving meal always brings cheers, many thanks and sometimes tears.
Millie wants you to know how much we love our blogging friends. She also said to tell you Happy Thanksgiving and that she will be tied up this week with toys and entertaining me.
