Getting Too Cold To Sit Out By The Campfire!

Good news, we found a home on a farm with a natural pond for Huey, Dewey, and Louie! See last post. I will miss those little ducky's, cry, cry sniff...sniff :(

I think our evenings of sitting out by the campfire are coming to an end. The evenings are starting to get pretty cold. We did sit out the other night and I took some awesome pictures of the sunset.
The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. I wish I could hibernate like a bear. It would be nice to wake up on a beautiful sunny day and just sleep the winter away.

But if I slept the winter away, I wouldn't be able to work in the mall during the holidays and deal with of all of the crazy mad shoppers. Now who would want to miss out on that?

I’ve been told many times, that I’m not a shopper, I’m a buyer. I think a lot of shoppers are “sport shoppers”. Sport shoppers will burn more gas to find a bargain, that they end up spending more than they save. I guess it’s all in the sport to find that bargain no matter what. Who else would get out of a nice toasty warm bed to go out and shop at 3:00am on a cold blustery day the day after Thanksgiving? Brr... 

I write a list, go the the store buy what’s on the list and come home. No sport in that. Good grief, there is a nice bottle of red wine to share with my honey in the warmth of our motor home.
Thanks for reading, life is good.........

Hibernating does sound like a good idea to me.

I am glad that you were able to find a nice home for Huey, Dewey and Louie. Love your sunset pics. The colours in the sky look awesome.
