Blankets and Trees

My cousins, Maddie & Gracie, made me a Texas Tech blanket for Christmas.

I really like it. It is super big and warm. Only there is one little problem.

Someone else REALLY loves this blanket!

Seriously, I cannot get her off the darn thing!

I always worry when the temperatures really dip in the winter that she will be cold in her kennel.
Yes, I know that the kennel is in my house that is a constant 65 degrees (I keep it a little cool) and that she does have hair, but I still worry. She never seems to like the blankets I put in there either.

So today I hope I solved this problem

Voila!

I made her a blanket just like my Tech one, but a different print.

It is the perfect size for her kennel.

She'll probably hate it and then I'll be frustrated, but I have my fingers crossed that she will love this blanket as much as she loves mine!

On another note, we've had lots of excitement around this afternoon that gave Lola reason to bark and growl.

Some guys showed up at the house and offered to trim the trees out front. I had intended to get them trimmed this winter, but just not right now as I'm trying to spend less money this month.

But, they offered to do it for a great price and they were here and willing to do it, so I said what the heck!

Here's the end result


I'm always amazed at what a difference it makes. I had them trimmed 2 years ago, but it incredible how much they grow in that amount of time. The guys cut off one BIG limb that I'm not 100% sure they should have, but I think that it looks good. After they were done, I hit the front yard with a water hose and made sure the grass and shrubs got some water before the "Arctic Blast" gets here.

Your trees look great. Can you send them to my house?

I love my Tech blanket. James says it is the warmest blanket ever.

When we lived in Dallas, I had to have my trees trimmed fairly often. Now, not so much! :)

Oh I am so glad that I am not the only worried mommy. I worry that Winston will go out the doggy door and freeze to death...then be so cold the rest of the day. I leave him with 3 blankets, 2 beds, and his kennel. I am sure he is fine in the kitchen all day but still!
