The Decorations Went up, Then Down

This Christmas tree finally made it up! Christmas Eve was the final day to get it up and that is just what I did on a cold rainy afternoon.

I forgot how long it took to shape the tree. It had been crammed in a bag for at least two years. I had to put my headlamp on to do the job right. Everyone should have a headlamp, but that is a whole nother story in itself, back to the tree.

Another Dog Rescued, Two Others Still Need Homes

This is my last dog to be rescued in 2011. I run a German Shepherd rescue called Muttley Crew Rescue. You can check out my animals on my website. I've named this guy "Samson."

Bless his heart, he was wondering around on South Stateline in Texarkana. I had several calls, text messages, Facebook messages and emails about him before I was able to get over and pick him up.

Mimi’s Private Dinner Party at Twisted Vines

I won one of those silent auction deals at the Mistletoe Fair this year. It was a private party dinner for four people at Twisted Vines. I wanted to have a nice holiday dinner with family and friends so I rushed to schedule it before Christmas.

Dinner was my planned around one of my favorite foods, there was Christmas music playing in the background as well as the Miracle on 34th Street movie on a huge screen. The scene was set for a fabulous evening.

Mimi’s Stay-cation of Fun

Sometimes a vacation is more work than fun when you have to do a bunch of planning. It is a lot of work for me because I have so many animals to make arrangements for. The thought of a "staycation" really sounded good. Especially when I realized I had a bunch of time to use or lose before the end of the year.

I have a goal to downsize, organize, simplify my life by 2012 so staying home for a week sounded like a good plan. I probably would have been much further along in my plans had I not gotten sick on the very first day of my staycation. What luck!
