We went to Kentucky for a church homecoming, and took some time to check out properties near Irvine that we saw on Zillow. Somehow our GPS got confused in the mountains, but we found the property I had my eye on purely by accident. It is everything that I want - a view, quiet, and a small house. The only problem is that we aren't ready to retire for anot her couple years, and can't afford two mortgages. I hope the LORD will keep it for us!

This is the job du jour. A few years ago we laid wood flooring in my mother-in-law's bedroom but I laid the the wrong way and they began popping up. Today I'm pulling them up, turning them around and making sure they're locked together. My knees hurt so I'm taking breaks.

I was concerned about the horses and cattle, although they are large animals and have body heat. There are some folks around here who keep their dogs outside. I hoped they would have the dogs inside while it was freezing. Now that the snow melted and we got plenty of rain my yard is a mud puddle thanks to Rose.

How beautiful! We don't get to see much of sunrises and sunsets in the holler. I would love to see them though. We didn't walk our dogs either during the cold spell. Hubby took good care of the outdoor animals and kept our wood fire going good and we were warm and toasty. This warm spell really makes up for the super cold. It was kinda scary as I worried about the donkeys and goats. So glad it didn't last long.

Merry Christmas Barbara! Our dogs are getting cabin fever because it's so cold I can't take them for walks.
This was our neon sunrise.

Beautiful meal Vanessa! We are doing the traditional turkey---our pug awaits getting her fair share. A beautiful sunny cold white Christmas here. Santa was very good to us. We are quite content. Merry Christmas!

Last night I served prime rib, and today as a nod towards when we lived in San Antonio, I steamed tamales. We saw them in Kroger and the boss had to have them. I made Mexican rice, refried beans and corn, tomatoes and okra from a can. Now we're stuffed!

Luckily Rose ignores them. If she liked the decorations she'd probably pull them off and shred them.

How fun is that! I bet Rose is loving her Christmas decorations. I have always wanted to put Christmas lights up on our cow shed. My husband laughs at me but I will do it sometime in the future lol!

Rose would definitely win the decorating prize! Have fun finishing up the decorating.

We humans may not have many Christmas decorations up yet, but our pup Rose has her new doghouse ready. Snoopy would be proud!

Life has been busy, between my job and caring for my mother-in-law. But as as John Lennon sang, Hard times are over. My brother- and sister-in-law are bringing our son up to KY to help out.
My younger daughter from Germany has been visiting and brought incense so I found my smoker and lit him up. It adds a holiday atmosphere to our home. May everyone's Thanksgiving be as blessed as ours will be.

A little good news at our home. This bathroom faucet moved from dripping to dribbling. It wasn't until today that we had time to get a new part. Of course we didn't know the brand it was but at the 4th place we got something close. As a side note, i thought Rose would like a road trip, but she gets carsick.
After I installed the part, my sweetie discovered the faucet brand and we found the parts at a Lowe's near Cincinnati. So we got back in the car (without Rose) and got the correct part, with a side trip to Party Source for a birthday gift for my dad.
Now the proper part is in, it works perfectly and thank goodness we didn't need a plumber.
