I’m still in L.A., but I’ll be returning home by evening.
It’s been a busy few days.
I made it up to L.A. through a torrential downpour.
It’s been beautiful since I arrived.

I did a (very) little bit of Christmas shopping on this trip.
I’ve been seeing friends, and family, and Christmas-Partied a bit too much.
I’ve been wearing “real” clothes with sweaters, and scarves, and boots.
(Such a change of pace from my usual yoga pants/jeans and flip flops!)
I do have a little bit of good news to share.
I have “officially” put a deposit down on a Newfoundland, male, puppy.
Because Newfoundlands are prone to heart problems, nothing is 100% definite on the puppy front until a cardiologist checks his heart when he is between nine and ten weeks old.
As a result, I’m trying not to think about this puppy as “mine” yet.
Boy Puppy will be ten weeks old on January 8th.
If his check-up goes well, I expect he’ll come home with me sometime around then.
I think it’s a good thing this is such a busy time of year.
I won’t have time to do much puppy-prep until after Christmas.
I have to stay focused on non-puppy things right now …
Which, is probably for the best – in case everything falls apart like it did last time.
