• Did you watch football yesterday?
I want to apologize to all of you with cold weather.
I got chilled just watching the games.
• We are getting beautiful winter sunsets here. People don’t often realize the “best” sunsets in Southern California are usually in the winter months.

• Fred is growing like a weed. Having a puppy means I’m getting up a lot earlier in the mornings now. (I’m more of a night owl by nature.) I took this silhouette iPhone photo of Fred at dawn.
It gives a little glimpse of what Fred will look like when he grows up.
Profile shots do that.
But, Fred is still just a baby.
He’s such a good puppy.
He’s so smart.
I’ve always had (sort of) hyper puppies in the past.
(Retrievers – which I love.)
Fred is so very calm in comparison … very busy, but very calm.
And Fred is adorable, of course.
He likes to “talk” a lot. He doesn’t bark much, but it seems like he’s trying to talk at times. The more time we spend together, the better we’re getting at understanding each other. For example, when Fred starts getting whiney and naughty I know he’s tired and going to take a nap soon. It’s like having a two year old again except it’s a puppy instead of a baby.
• Today will be my fourth day of having “bulletproof” coffee for breakfast. Since I wrote my post last week, I’ve been informed a “Bulletproof Coffeehouse” is scheduled to open in Santa Monica. An entire coffee shop devoted to coffee made with butter instead of cream! I’ll give you my thoughts on my butter-coffee experience in a post this week.
• There were at least fifty hummingbirds in my backyard yesterday evening at sunset. I think my yard is the official hummingbird hub of Southern California … it really is amazing how many congregate here. Sometimes Fred gives a half-hearted jump in their direction. I think he knows he doesn’t have a prayer of catching one.
It’s only January 19th, but I’m pretty sure the arrival of so many hummingbirds means it’s spring. The male hummingbirds are fighting over the females. The birds are mating, building nests, etc.
I think it’s going to be a very early spring here.
