This morning’s run included a close-up view of many of these guys
My mom’s neighborhood is basically overrun with the cute little guys! It would be just like a Disney story if it weren’t that it’s actually somewhat of a problem, being as they eat peoples’ flowers & run around fearlessly like they own the place. Since hunting is not allowed they’ve grown quite used to human presence and don’t get scared and run away like most deer in the wild. Although they can be a nuisance, they were cute as can be on my run & I enjoyed scoping out all the little baby Bambi deer that still had their spots! Adorable!
Did everyone have a good Christmas?
I had a great day! If you’ve been following along, you know my week prior to Christmas was pretty insane! It was nice to have a full day yesterday just to relax & hang out with family! I even snuck in a 2 hour nap! Yesss!!!!
Here’s how we split our day: morning opening presents & breakfast at my Moms house; lunch and more presents at Chris’ mom’s house. Dinner & the entire extended family (with still more presents) at my Mom’s house again.
And we’ve got a big family!

And of course there was food!
Dinner included spare-ribs, grilled chicken breasts, and steak
with mashed potatoes, green salad, jello salad, rolls, cocktail shrimp, cheese balls, veggies & dip….I can’t even remember everything!
And dessert included several kinds of cookies, pies, fudge, cheesecake, caramel, and more!
We’re house- and dog-sitting for some neighbors of my Grandma for the next few days, so after dinner we went over there to let the dog out.
Tuscany is a full-blood great dane. She’s only 1 year old (still a puppy in personality), and she totally towers over my beast of a dog. (for comparison, Rocky weighs just under 100 lb! He’s pretty huge!)
We took Rocky over so we could let them meet and walk them together. Rocky really liked Tuscany….as a friend. But we think Tuscany is in puppy love!
Much of today is going to be spent playing catch-up with some very neglected, yet much needed school-work! Ugh! I mean, oh joy!?
Me and my work – we have kind of a love-hate relationship. I love it. But sometimes I think it wants too much from me!

Does it feel like Monday to anyone else or just me???
