Well, we are sure to have a white Christmas this year. After about five days of rain and temps in the mid-30s, we are getting dumped on and are expecting 5-8” over the next couple of days. It sure is pretty though.

It’s been a busy week starting with our Stampin Up group’s annual Holiday Party that was held at Pat’s community room at Amira (an upscale senior apartment complex).  We had a yummy lunch followed by a Zoom call with our leader Carrie (Portland, OR) and Pam who lives in Phoenix. Carrie gave us a secret Christmas project to work on and this is how mine turned out. It is a 12x12 picture that can be framed.

On Tuesday evening, the Daughters of Penelope (the philanthropic group who owns our building) put on a very nice Holiday Party with Greek food, yummy cookies & cupcakes, a visit from a very humorous Santa, and singing of Christmas Carols accompanied by Dave who was playing the organ.  It was nice to see people dressed up a bit and to enjoy some good conversation.

I took Joey to the dog park yesterday but we only stayed about 10 minutes as he grew tired of the dog who kept pestering him and the grounds were slushy and hard to move around in.

Mary, a local Vet Technician came here last evening and she and I went door to door clipping pet’s nails.  There are 13 pet owners in our building and 10 signed up for her service at $12 each and all are happy and she was happy to have the opportunity.  We will schedule another clinic in about 8 weeks.
