Welcome to my favorite month of the year

A personal note from Twinkie:

My Mommy Bonni and her children (from a prior marriage) are all planning to abandon me. Imagine picking them over me when I'm so cute & furry and just 3 1/2 years old. I'd call Child Services but I don't have an oppossible thumb and licking a touch pad has proved useless. 

In the past when she left I stayed with her lovely friends. But now everyone is going away or can't help. I was adopted from Animal Services two years ago, but still remember the short time I spent in a cage and wouldn't like to do that again. I'm a people

So, I'm hoping that you, or someone you know, might be willing to take me home from Dec 26 - Jan 3. There's even a chance I can convince Mom to let you have a week long sleep-over with me at our house in the Village of the Arts. I love everyone, especially guys & kids, and get along with friendly dogs & cats. When I first meet someone I get SO EXCITED I jump up (whoops) but within a short time I'm relaxed and would love to snuggle in your lap. I can also stay at home by myself all day. Call or email if you can help me.
Puppy hugs, Twinkie

Now that we've dipped our toes into December, I'm really getting into the celebratory mode. Back in the day, my family was programmed to party because it was the month when 6 of us celebrated birthdays, 4 had anniversaries plus Chanukah & Christmas (though marriages). December in New York City also meant cold weather & possible snow...I loved it.

Now I'm here in the tropics, growing out-of-season tomatoes & bitching about 80 degree temperatures...still. Next week I'll have adorable hand decorated sugar cookies ready-to-gift in Christmas mini bags. Okay, I don't really know the difference between a reindeer & moose, but imagine the cookie cutter is a decorated Christmas cute is this.

I can "write" someone's name on the moosey body to personalize it. Sorry I don't have a sample picture to show (it's been a hectic weekend), but if you'd like to order some they're just $5 each.

Here's what else I'm cooking up in the kitchen this week:
