Winter reservations

Winter retreat

It won’t.

“You think our room is ready now? The reservation was confirmed for early arrival as the days are so short. Don’t want to be let out in the cold at the end of the day.” Puppy escorting his buddy to the nice warm barn with plenty of hay – and maybe a Greenie under the pillow – at the West TX ranch.

Fine.

I’m not ready for the reheat.

    So pretty! And did you see the photos of the kids sledding up around DFW somewhere? In the meantime — I have chickadees at my bird feeders now! Hoohah! Also: one wren has showed up. It’s not snow, a horsie, and a pretty landscape, but it’ll do.

      You have Cat TV! (Now all you need is a cat HAHA)
      I’ll be just as happy if all that chill stays a bit north and we just get cool-ish and clear….and the backyard mud hole from Friday’s storms drains a bit…but the winds are doing some nice pruning of dead and small branches saving me the trouble. (Once again so glad of the absence of pine trees)
      Thanks for going out on a limb and perching a comment here

    I’m enjoying winter in northern Illinois, but we haven’t had nearly enough snow for my liking!

      I’m a fall and winter person….not a fan of cold dreary drizzle/rain which we get here just before it turns to scorching glaring heat. Ah, the beauty of flakes and flaw covering drifts. Have to admit it’s easier when you are time and task flexible. Thanks for sledding in with a comment

      And a sunny sheltered spot to enjoy the a winter afternoon (…and no bath because your paws are muddy from a full day of snow romping!) Thanks for the smile and paw waves from Molly and warm Puppy!

    You’ve got winter and we’ve got summer. It’s weird. I’m not sure what to make of any of it!

      While Amarillo/Panhandle, Central TX, across to Dallas usually get snow each winter, this close to the coast the fronts normally only bring us fierce winds and rainstorms. The back yard is flooded…again. We’re between 50’s-70’s and expecting temps of 80 towards end of the week…noooo! While Molly is excited the pool will be open at her park, I’m not ready for sweltering and mosquitoes yet! It is weird. Thanks for pondering along

    Thank goodness for the “sugar coating!” It almost makes winter tolerable. That and a nice cozy house. –Curt

    I think the animals enjoy it. No reservations. It’s a nice change, but thank goodness for the warm barn and warm home. Enjoy.
