No Title  
December is being interesting this year, it seems. For one, we're actually - finally -getting some real winter weather: cold tempreatures and even snow. But Kansas being Kansas the weather is still trying to be all over the place. It's supposed to be in the upper fifties on Sundy, but I'll believe it when I see it. Last time the weather said it was going to be in the fifties it also said it was going to be sunny. It was neither, it was freezing and cloudy and that was the day my mom had us help put tarp over the storage trailer.

But, surprisingly, I'm not complaining even though I hate the cold. We've been needing a real winter, mostly to cut down on a lot of the bugs that have been driving us nuts the past two summers. Plus it helps you appreciate warm weather more.

I also sold my first doll! But being my first sale I keep fretting over the package. Did I write the address clear enough? Should I have put more bubble wrap on the doll? That kind of thing.

Also for the first time we've have to put up a barricade around the tree to keep it safe from the dogs. Usually it's the cats that are a problem, but we have a lot of stubborn boy dogs who have been having a peeing contest with eachother. We've also resorted to putting diapers on them, that's how bad the peeing thing has gotten.

I've also opened up my Etsy store to making custom dolls, so we'll see how that goes.

Congrats on your sale of your doll hon. Hope that takes off for you.

The weather has been just as crazy on the east coast as yours. We had snow Saturday and rain took it away Sunday and we froze our buns off Monday and Tuesday and today it will be in the 40's. I guess winter can't make up it's mind what it want's to be.

My hope is the warm days will trick the bugs to come out and a sudden cold snap will thin their numbers ;P

o.o That is a lot of craziness. (Pets, honestly. I don't know what we'd do if our dog decided to start marking the tree. >.<)

But man, that is so awesome - congrats on the sale of your doll! So exciting! May it be the first of many. :D

It's usually a problem with male dogs who are neutered when adults. To get them to stop you have to catch them at it. Problem is the two dogs doing have been incredibly sneaky about it.
