a splendid saturday

It started out like this, at a Christmas celebration at the grandkids school.  That guy in the blue is Alicia's brother and I am fond of him and his wife.   They were brave enough to be my first real estate clients way back when.

 There were songs and kids and it was very, very sweet.

 He did great too, hard to get a clear picture between everyone's heads, but this one is nice.

 Then I went Christmas shopping for a while, and that was good too.  I wandered home and Jay had cooked General Tsao's chicken for supper, because apparently the inventor of this food item passed away this week in his 90s, so that was good.

Then the Newf breeder we've been in contact with texted me.  We could wait for our puppy who is due this week.  But. She had two little girls left from the last litter if we were interested.  We toyed with the idea, and the kids were enthusiastic.  Then she sent a photo.

Yup. Done.

 Sidney didn't seem to mind at all.

They're camping out with the new baby in the family room tonight.   Jay set up the kennel in case we need it for safekeeping, but we never used it much with Sam anyway.   We had no kennel at all for Spooner or our other dogs.   They're useful at certain points, but she's not used to being alone at this point.

After a few hours of discussion, her name is Elin, aka Elle, Ellie.  It works.

Anyway, a lovely ending to a very lovely Saturday.

Love, Val
