Christmas Card

This year my Christmas card is the 
Eighth Day of Christmas.
.



I have been sending cards out but I have lost my list.
I think it was shredded with some of thehamish latest vet bills lots of bills.
So if you did not get a card from me I am very sorry.
Next year I will be better.
Next doctors visit is tomorrow 
thehamish has been throwing up last night and early morning.
This morning he is much better ate breakfast and kept it down. 
We are keeping him warm and quiet.
He is the gud dug thehamish
.

 My friend Debbie spoils me. She always finds such wonderful gifts on her trips.
I told her all she had to do was give me this box and I would be heaven no matter what was inside.

And just because I can here is your pretty for the midweek


When I was growing up in Tucson we did not have snow.
So we used tumbleweeds for our snowmen.
We did not have lights on them but we fun anyways.


snow. . . parsnip
music. . . There's Still My Joy,  Indigo Girls

  2. I have a story book called Tommy The Tumbleweed. I have seen them spray painted white and hung in trees with lights, but the snowman is even better. I've seen those things as big as volkswagon beetles rolling along. They don't have them where I live now. Sweet memory. Glad Ham has improved as I've worried about him. Sister is diabetic too and we had the cataract surgery. She has lots of stomach problems from both ends;( Avoid dairy and any fat, but I know you already know that. Sister has had it for several years now. God, we love them so. Happiest holidays to you. I knew you'd like that crane tree.

    1. We had a new Scotty Puppie reserved for us. We named her Agatha. I really didn't want a puppy but it seemed special that one came up. But I droppeed out. So now I will keep looking here for an older friend for thehamish

    2. If thehamish's kidney are getting really bad I don not want to be training a new puppy.
      So I will just keep looking for an older terrier, NO chihuahua mixed in there. Nasty dogs.
      Except for a blog friend dog. I is good the other is bad.

  4. I adore that card and mine is on my mantle. I'm getting worried about all the cards I sent out...I haven't heard of even one arriving yet and it's been over a week! :(

    Poor Hamish. Give him a kiss for me.

    1. Mail hasn't come yet, I will look as soon as it does.
      Even though I love cards, blogging with you has been the best gift.
      No worries on my part.

    1. Thank You. I am enjoying doing The Twelve Days of Christmas. I have done them before but since moving to back to Tucson it has been fun taking a western twist on it. It it easy to know what you have to draw that year.
      I so enjoy reading your comments on the blog we follow.
      Merry Merry Christmas and let us hope for a better 2017

  6. Your card is lovely, you are very talented. I've enjoyed looking back at your decorations as well especially all those cards. I keep some of my old ones as well, they're too nice to throw out or cut up.
    Hoping thehamish is a lot better after his doctor visit.
    Merry Christmas to everyone at your place.

  7. I received the card and I love it! Thank you for your beautiful card!
    Sorry to hear thehamish was throwing up but glad he is better today. He is such a gud dug, I'm sure Santa will bring lots of pressies for Christmas :-)

    Thank you for your friendship again this year. I'm sorry I've been MIA a lot...work has been crazy this year (and I'm certain next year, too. Sigh). I wish you and all your loved ones very happy holidays! xoxo

    1. His kidneys are acting up. It is not really looking all that great. I am very worried.
      Christmas is so late at the home. Barley got the tree up and a few decorations out. What shopping I did was thing I ordered from Amazon months ago.
      I am hoping I can get things together.

      Happy you liked the snowman.

  12. Loved the card! And the tumbleweed snowman is so wonderful. Yesh, we have snow...lots of snow! Our driveway is an ice skating rink. Asked the plowman to drop an extra load of salt and sand today as we have family coming in soon and don't want slipping accidents! Holding a good healing thoughts for dear Hamish. X

    1. I would think you could grow poms where you live. The grow fast and are so tasty.
      It takes a few years for fruit to set. I had 4 good ones this year.
