After our meal we had time to take a short walk down the bridle path. They brought one of their little Dachshunds (Simon) along so he joined us for our walk.
Warm in the sun, cold in the shade, however. We encountered ice in the puddles on the trail.

It was a beautiful morning so we enjoyed a very long second cup outside watching our bird friends.
|even the dogs were transfixed by the bird traffic|

The afternoon was spent washing both dogs and trimming Lewis' sweet face in preparation for Christmas with Jesse and Erin. I made the dough for some chocolate crinkle Christmas cookies and froze dough for another.
Dear friend Judi made and sent us some of her famous cutout cookies last week and I had all intentions of frosting and decorating them. Best laid plans.....
