Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019

Christmas Tree 2018Our family including Miss Ella Coffee Paws Bacon wishes everybody Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We had a feast for Christmas Eve starting with my special appetisers and ending with my famous Christmas cake.

In between we had sarmale from Bourret Deli and many other seasonal delicacies. Suffice to say we’ll have a lot of delicious food through the New Year!

A toast to the Holidays!

Victim of plant theft TWICE!

This past August we redid our landscaping at great expense. We planted 3 hydrangeas in front of our house: 1 shrub and two young trees. Lovely!

Doggone it! Within 10 days the 2 young hydrangea trees were stolen overnight. A couple of weeks later we replaced them and tied them down as best we could. My husband would wake up several times a night to check on them.

They survived intact until last night when again they were stolen along with the shrub that had been spared the first time, somewhere around 2-3 am.

There are no words to describe the fury I feel.  These thefts cost us several hundred dollars plus the effort to plant and care for these plants.

I can’t even begin to understand what these thieves hope to achieve in mid-November with these plants. It’s too late and cold in the season to plant them and hope they take anywhere. Yesterday we had snow, and we’ll have plenty more in the days to come.

Maybe they were just vandals rather than opportunistic thieves. No consolation anyway. May these s.o.b.’s rot in hell!

And this is Remembrance day. Yeah, I’ll remember this alright 🙁
