Remember when I told you our heater went out? Well, Hubby had to make sure everything was opened back up before we could start our first fire. Well, the first fire we have had in several years. That is why you see all the tools on the bricks. The pliers to turn the gas on, because, yes, we had 'misplaced' the gas key. The flashlight to look up inside the chimney to make sure nothing was blocking the hole. Then you notice my candles that sat so pretty in the fireplace.

Yes, those are Roo's toys you see to the left!! I promise, that basket is not really close enough to the fire to be in danger. It's just an illusion! Or the angle! Or something!

Ok, I just thought I would share my other baby with you! And, since I can't just post a picture without explaining it..... If you want to see other ramblers like me that like to explain their pictures take a trip over to Angie's place (she really ROCKS!) at:


for more WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

If you don't want to bother with all the explanations, and want to see Wordless Wednesday pics, then you can go to 5 Minutes for Mom, Check out the new Wordless Wednesday HQ!! and .

Oh, and I also chose to share V with you so I could enter her here:

What a nice "friend" for Roo, and vice-versa! Roo is very lucky to have a mom that allows a dog (we are still on the look-out). I wrote my thesis on the pet-human bond... blessings!

Your dog looks like he's really enjoying himself. I love to see contented 'fur babies.'
