Well  first make sure someone is watching. It's no fun to play by yourself. So look in the kitchen patio door and be sure your mom is there. She is and smiles at you.

Now that you have her attention, get busy. Grab a planket out of your doghouse. It smells kind of doggie so it needs airing out. Run with it to the back yard then go back for another blanket. Make sure Mom sees you on the patio. 

She does and smiles at you. Take another blanket out to the yard and let her know. 

So she looks outside and frowns. "What are you doing?" she asks you.

You nod your head and bark, wanting her to come see. By this time all five blankets are scattered around the yard.

Now, Mom is pretty sharp and she knows what you want. So, she gathers the blankets up, two at a time and throws them over the chain wire fence so they can get rid of the doggie odor and warm up a bit. She smiles when the blankets are all hanging on the fence. The wind is almost blowing them away, but she watches close. 

And Happy lies down on the grass to take a nap. Showing Mom what he wants her to do is tiresome. Soon his eyes close and he's dreaming of what he'll have to eat for supper.

Happy here. Yes, that's my name.

And it works. My blankets are all soft and good smelling now.

Sweet Dreams.

This  is  from last year. I didn't put up a tree this year, but just decorated with my ceramics.

Christmas is not until Friday, but I'd like to start the week with a Christmas Carol. Sing along if you wish.

Away in a manger no crib for a bed, the Little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head.

The stars in the sky looked down where he lay, The Little Lord Jeseus asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the poor Baby wakes, But Little Lord Jesus no crying He makes, 

I love Thee, Lord Jesus. Look down from the stars, 
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh

Have a wonderful week.

December IWSG

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group

(And I'm insecure every time I try to post here. Don't know why it gives me so much trouble. Working on it.) 

Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen.

Our Twitter is @TheIWSG and hashtag #IWSG.

Every month, we announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say.
Remember, the question is optional!!!
December 2 question - Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?

Mm, interesting question. I can't think of any special time of the year or months that my writing is more productive. I seem to take it by spells. For days, weeks I'll write, then I get tired or need a change and stop for awhile. Not long, usually a few days. I'll have to think about that.
Happy Writing.

And thank all these lovely co hosts for their work today.

The awesome co-hosts for the December 2 posting of the IWSG are Pat Garcia, Sylvia Ney, Liesbet @ Roaming About Cathrina Constantine, and Natalie Aguirre!

Have a super December.
