So today is the first day of muzzle loading season for deer. We could sure use another deer in our freezer. We already have about knee deep snow, so whatever that translates into inches. We had to take our oldest coondog Belle into the vet. She was not eating and lost a lot of weight. The good news is that she will be ok, but it cost quite a lot of money. She was in the hospital for three days, so you can just imagine. But we will find a way to pay for it, she is my baby girl and means everything to me.  On a brghter note, christmas is just around the corner! Oh my! There is so much to do. I have christmas presents to make, cookies to bake, cards to make and gifts to wrap. So I guess I better get off here and get something done….wish me luck!
