Happy Thanksgiving!

In year's past, I have prepared a meal for an army of people but today we are having a low-key Thanksgiving since we are caring for our mama.  I have prepared some of her favorites and hope that she will enjoy the meal.

I'm also sharing with you some photos of our little home's autumn decor and tablesettings.

As soon as the last dish is washed and put away later today, I will immediately be in a peppermint-everything mode!  I have scaled back from the days I when I had 10-20 decorated trees inside our house.  This year I will only have four trees.  Small house = less trees/less work!

I hope everyone has a very blessed Thanksgiving.  Count your blessings, name them one by one!

Miss Coco

I would like to introduce to y'all my new dog.  We got her from a sweet family in Warner Robins.  They were looking for a loving home to adopt her because of some health issues in their family. I had a friend who heard about this and called me immediately.  

Some of you might remember my late Yorkie, who was also named "Coco."  (Yes, I name all my Yorkies "Coco," just like I have named every kitty I've ever owned "Kitty Puff.")  We had not gotten another dog since the last one died five years ago because my husband said he didn't want a dog and cat in the house anymore--one or the other, but not both.  *insert roll-eye emoji*. Well, he was out of town during the weekend this pup became available, so I took that opportunity to bring her home with me and was sure that he would fall in love with her.  I mean, Kitty Puff is 17 years old and I didn't want to keep waiting.  Of course, he loves her 100%.  She is the sweetest thing.  Not a floor dog.  No ma'am, she's a lap dog and snuggle bunny.  

And yes, I saved all the late Coco's clothes!  Here she is...

It's a dark and rainy day in Georgia.  I have gotten out my Thanksgiving decor and am now working on Christmas decor, but I'm not skipping Thanksgiving y'all!  

Count your blessings, name them one by one.  Count your blessings, see what God has done!

Hey Y’all!

It’s been a long time since I last blogged. I’m back. Who knows for how long.  Not sure I remember how to do it anymore. Not even sure I can write without using hashtags or emojis.  I definitely need to clean up the sidebar and get a new header. Might need professional help!

I took a break from blogging because life was getting a little hectic.  You might remember we left Florida and moved to Georgia—bought a little house across the street from mama’s house. My mama (Miss Pauline) has Alzheimer’s and we wanted to keep her in her own home as long as possible.  Mama is now 94 years old and doing as well as can be expected.  She has several caregivers and that helps a lot.  I spend a lot of time running back and forth across the street—the neighbors only see me wearing sweat pants and carrying bags of stuff!

We also got a new Yorkie recently.  Her family had some health issues and wanted her to go to a loving home. She is 4 years old and just precious. We renamed her after our belated Coco and just love her!

So, when time permits, I’ll be blogging about my outfits, Miss Coco’s outfits, home decor, and my barely-existent social life.
