Only three more sleeps until Christmas, our decorations have been hung, the yard shines brightly thanks to hundreds of solar fairy lights and all the presents are wrapped and under the tree. The only thing left to do is the shopping for fresh food items so that a small, non-OTT feast for two can be prepared, not to mention finding something yummy for Maxi and Bundy to eat, brining the total number of creatures celebrating Christmas at our house to four (visiting wildlife does not count).
This year we decided to stay home and relax for the Christmas holidays, normally we load the car up and head south to spend the holidays with our extended families, it is wonderful fun and we enjoy spending time with family but this year we’re making it about us. 2013 has been a hell of a year, plenty of ups and downs and far too many sleepless night, time at home to rejuvenate our body and souls as well as do some work around the house, is exactly what we (especially me) need because I don’t think 2014 is going to be any less hectic. Christmas morning we’ll both head to the local animal shelter to help clean pens, feed and walk doggies that are unlucky enough to be in a shelter at Christmas and then it is home to our own dogs for a day of doing whatever we like, we may even take them to the beach for a swim and a stroll along the breakwall. What are you doing to celebrate Christmas this year?
To all of you wonderful people following, liking and reading my posts, Two Black Dogs and I would like to say a huge thank you and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. May you and your families be happy, safe and enjoying life wherever you are.
Best wishes for the holiday season!
