Mocha on Ice

I dreamed and wished for a white Christmas, but no snow. Instead, we have had temps in the teens for several days, almost breaking (but not quite) a hundred year record low.

This past week is only the third time I have seen our pond frozen solid. Unfortunately, Louisiana folks don’t keep ice skates in their garage. Wouldn’t that have been fun!

I tossed a stick onto the ice just to see what our chocolate lab would do….. yeah, I sorta have a mean streak in me. LOL He couldn’t get his footing on the ice, but kept trying until I called him off. In this pic he is standing on the ice trying to decide how to reach that stick. I really wish I had a video camera, poor baby. Actually, it was pretty hysterical.
