I am thankful for 2011, for the chance to reevaluate and nourish myself, I am excited and hopeful for what 2012 has to offer, a new year, a new start. The world is always changing and reinventing itself...do you feel it? Are you open to it?
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

My guys have always worshiped the heat provided by our space heaters, they quickly discovered the beautiful warmth of the wood stove. I have a steamer on top of the stove that I fill with water to add humidity to our dry winter air. Yesterday Mick commented on the lack of static electricity this year, seems the steamer and the limited use of the forced air oil furnace is the reason, much to the relief of my dogs, nothing worse then coming for a cuddle and getting a static electricity shock from your owner.

If you check in on my blog occasionally you may have seen my postings about the addition of rabbits to help supplement the dogs diet. Really pleased with the results, its wonderful to know that I am supplementing my dogs with well raised fresh meats.
The occasional rabbit has also made it to our dinner table, yes it's true, once you get over the whole fluffy bunny thing, healthy garden fresh rabbit makes an amazing dinner.

Update-Looks like I am out of calendars, dropped a few into the mail today, and the rest will go as payment arrives, should have them all to those that requested one by the end of the month. Hope everyone enjoys them.
I have 2012 Calendars! They are lovely, glossy quality photos, composed of photos that have appeared on the Blog as well as some that I have never posted. Calendar 'open' dimension from top to bottom is 17" and 11" wide. In the photo above August is shown open so you can visualize the finished product.
Photos include Pups, Golden Oldies both Black Schnauzers and Pepper & Salt Schnauzers, ears natural and cropped. No Show photos, just beautiful shots of Standard Schnauzers doing what Schnauzers do best, being our pets.
I have a couple that I have pre-printed, I could pop them in the mail immediately if you would like one by Christmas. I can also order more if I get enough requests and have in the mail in the New Year, so long as I receive your request within the next two weeks.
*CORRECTION* error on original invoicing, sorry. Price is $20 including postage & envelope for Canadian orders, $21.50 to send to USA.
I am not looking to go into the publishing business, just thought a few folks that visit the blog, or have Dinsdale dogs themselves might enjoy a purely 'Standard' Schnauzer Calendar for their walls. If there is no response then I will not order anymore for printing. So let me know soon! :-))
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details....Oh and for fun, the first 2 people to contact me will get a free Calendar :-) Only Canadian or USA eligible for the free calendar fun offer.

......happy??? I picked up a bunch of seasonal hats & scarfs to dress the dogs up for some seasonal fun photos. Hope promptly laid down on the sofa and asked me to kill her quick before she died of embarrassment. Anyone that tells you dogs do not have a sense of self, show them these photos of Hope.

We have an old Balsam at the side of the driveway that needs to be removed, I have a feeling that if we don't have someone come in to take it down, soon the winter elements may do it for us. The moss and lichen growing on it are very beautiful to photograph.
