Have I mentioned that I am allergic to Mountain Cedar, Juniperus ashei for the more learned out there. The Austin area is covered with Mountain Cedar and I sneeze a lot during the winter months when it is pollinating (mid December through the end of February). I always look forward to winter for the cooler weather but the Mountain Cedar takes a lot of the fun out of winter for me. We have really had a very mild winter. While the Northeast U.S. has seen a lot of snow, the low this winter at my house has been 31 degrees on 3 nights in January and on 1 night in early February with no snow and little rain. Even with my allergies, I still like to spend a lot of time outside before it starts getting hot.
I have met a new dog two houses down from ours that is an adorable Labradoodle puppy. He really likes me so all is well in the neighborhood. I am back up to 205 pounds with the cooler weather. I do like to eat during the winter.
We have been home bodies lately and haven’t done much traveling. Things have been quite boring for a 4 year old Wolfie other than around Christmas. We had so many friends over during the holidays and you know how I love to meet and greet at parties. I am always the center of attention. I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season and are looking forward to a wonderful Spring.
