er 25, 2008 1:01 PM What a day!

I have had a stressful day. I raise Registered Dachshunds and I became a new mother tonoct.
I want you to know, I sat with her all day-Sunday with my hand on her stomach. Was up at 3 P.M. on Monday mng.
to check on her. I lay on the couch in the most uncomfortable position, so I could place my hand on her stomach.
Then danged- if she didn't wait till today to have those babies. Needless to say, I took her back to her crib on
Monday morning about 7. I have run my legs off to be there and keep the kennel warm and check on her since then.
She had 5 of the sweetest babies I have seen -(since my last litter). I have never seen a Dachshund that wasn't adorable.
I have 2 more that are ready to deliver in the next few weeks. Winter is not the ideal time to be having babies- but I
will take care of them when they come. It is just a relief to know it is over for this one.
My sweet grand-daughter got in from college tonoct safely, for the holidays. That just makes for a perfect day.
My grandson and his sister will be in tomorrow- all the family will be here for Thanksgiving. I feel so blessed.
Speaking of blessed, I wish all of you who read my blog the very best of the holiday season.

Okay, I'm kinda old-

and my feet stay cold all the time (especially at noct when I am setting and watching nitetime T.V.)
I found some old electric blankets- that were really popular back in the 50's, at a auction a few weeks ago.
I checked them and amazingly, they still worked. So a light went off in my head (no more cold feet!)
I folded it into 4ths. making sure the control was at the top, and on the Left side (this works for my situation)
I then carefully stitched all the top pieces together, then very carefully (making sure not to nick the wires),
I stitched all along the bottom and up the one side where it was needed. That made a really neat place to stick feet-
all the way up to the thigh area, in a nice, cozy, toast warm , top and bottom cocoon type envelope.
I share this with you- because if you are old, like me, and have the same problems- go to a auction and buy
a old electric blanket and treat yourself to warmth and comfort. I'm making one now for my younger sister,
who says has the same problem.
Does anyone ever read and post on these blogs? I vowed to try to keep mine up daily. I just want someone to read it.
Have a great day!
