Good morning everyone! How did everyone fare over New Years? Any major hangovers? Not for me. I’m not much of a drinker – I like a few glasses of wine or Baileys but that’s about it. I had a very quiet New Years – I was sleeping. lol. My best friend of over 20 years came by for supper and Sammy was very obnoxious all day long. He wouldn’t settle down and wouldn’t sleep so consequently his mommy spent most of her day chasing him around and not really getting to visit much. When she left I was exhausted so Sam and I went and laid down and that’s about all I remember. lol.
Sammy is still quite the handful. So much for getting a nice calm dog this time. I’m sure Buddy’s spirit is lurking in this little guy. Not to mention he is getting big! I weighed him yesterday and he’s almost 13 lbs now – he’s furry and heavy. The breed is supposed to be 7-13 lbs but obviously Sammy is going to be much bigger. The vet figures around 20 lbs, maybe a bit more. The nice thing is he’s quite rugged – you don’t have to worry about being too gentle with him. He is still bad with his biting but at least this week all my body parts are in one piece.
I wouldn’t give him up for anything though. I love him dearly already and I can only imagine how much more it will be over the next years. He loves to cuddle in bed and I really like that. It’s so sweet when he puts his head up on the pillow with me and takes a nibble from my ear. I know I’ll miss the puppy stage when he grows up even though it’s driving me crazy so I try not to wish him to get older for any reason.
On the reading front I’m not doing the best. I really need to buckle down this week and get some books read. I thought I’d get so much read over Christmas and really read pretty much nothing. What I’m working on now is Beneath the Thirteen Moons by Kathryne Kennedy, Tropic of Night by Michael Gruber and The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly. If I really buckled down I know I could finish them this week. Later this week I’ll have my self-imposed challenges posted. I’ve got 5 challenges that I’m going to try hard to finish so we’ll see.
I don’t have too many pictures of Sammy this week. I forgot to take any so there’s only a few. I do have a couple of Sammy and I together. Not the best pictures but they’ll have to do for now. I seriously need a visit to my hairdresser but we all know how crazy things have been for me these past few months. I’ll get there soon I hope.
That’s it for this week. I can’t believe it’s already 2011 – time sure does fly by. So how about the rest of you? What have you got planned for the week? What are you all reading this week? I hope you all have a wonderful week!
