Meet Paco the Pup

The So Cal snow melted off the mountain tops and the temps climbed back up the other day. The sunset was golden in color. I just love how the sky can begin looking so pretty in lavender and then show us an amazing grand finale in fiery orange! For more sky connections, visit Skywatch Friday

Today we are bundling up because of a cold front moving in, experiencing frost. Looks like the avocado grove and plants will be hit hard today but I thought the morning sunrise seemed hopeful.

So, my friend Rose at Color Connection was having a giveaway awhile back and I won Paco the Pup! Thanks so much Rose! This adorable soft, cuddly puppy was the perfect gift to share with our grandson on his first day of preschool. This was huge for him and Ryan was so pleased with the gift and excited to meet his teacher and make new friends at school. For now, his favorite color is green.

Do you have memories of putting your children on the school bus or walking them to school on the first day... how about drying a tear or two? They grow so quickly.

On Friday mornings I head over to +Freda Mans and participate in her weekly book meme:
The Friday 56 

This paperback book was at our local book store; looked interesting. Chapter 5 talks of digestive fire.


"Imagine that you are building a fire and that you've already put into it the quantity of wood that the fire can consume within a reasonable period of time. Then, suddenly, someone dumps a truckload of heavy lumber on top of the fire. The fire will most likely be smothered as a result. This dumping of a truckload of wood at the end is analogous to taking a heavy dessert at the end of the meal." --Deepak Chopra, M.D.
I'm thinking that maybe we should eat dessert at the beginning of our meal because it's a new year and the best comes first! Oh, how sweet it is! It's a funny thing how 'ice cream' and animals can bring my grandchildren such joy!

So, when I was growing up in the 50s and 60s, one of my favorite songs as a kiddo, was hearing Miss Patty Page sing, How Much Is That Doggie in the Window. Remember that one? Sweet memories!


 We used to breed Australian Shepherds when the children were little ones and have owned many Aussies. Now that we're older and have lots of grandchildren crawling around the place, we just have the one cat, our Siamese, Jazz. How about you... do you have a pup?
