Backyard Musings During The Holiday Season

Someone is going on Santa’s naughty list!

If you see one of these rolling across the yard, don’t blame me!

I know what I want in my Christmas stocking!

I’m just saying, how many things do you need hanging on this branch?

Santa, can you please hang my carrots from the branches so I don’t have to dig through the snow?

If you let me borrow Gabby’s adorable new UGG pajamas, I will tell you which squirrel chewed the Christmas lights wire.

Hurry, run, before she tries to hang lights on you or make you wear outfits like that silly dog!

Who are you calling silly???

Some Days I Just Need To Let It Be

My mother has always said never wake a sleeping baby, and in my case, don’t wake your snoozing dog since it is the only time the house is quiet when you visit.  Even at this age, I never let Gabby be and she is soon running through the house barking.  I’ve discovered over the last few days that I should also just let the moon be.

The moon needs little help with its brilliant display, but somehow I thought the moon needed a little decoration and tried to capture it through the Christmas lights.

 I wasn’t defeated when the red lights failed and thought maybe the moon would prefer a little blue ambience.

While my attempts failed, I thought the Three Dog Bakery Christmas lights reflected nicely with the moon.

I know I am middle-aged now and have to adjust to many changes in society, but somehow I don’t think there will be a musician capable of replacing Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon with a modern version of Drone Me To The Moon.

Lesson of the week where snoozing dogs and the moon are concerned – let it be!!
