Our selfies for today are brought to you by mancat Evan. He decided that he wanted to show you all that his taxi cab, which he got for Christmas, is not only good for going on joy rides, but also for doing a little relaxing. After all, who said you can't sleep on the job?
Evan actually snapped today's selfies, last week during our Twelve Days of Christmas festivities. That's why you can still see a stocking hung in the background, and why a Christmas movie is playing on the TV. Can anyone guess which movie it is? It's a romantic Christmas comedy, and to be honest, it's not one of this human's most favorite movies. But, if it involves Christmas, then it is likely to play at least once in this household during the Christmas season. But we digress. Back to Evan.
If anyone needs a ride in Evan's taxi, feel free to give him a call. He'll come over and let you a hitch a ride. When he's done with his nap, that is.
Happy Sunday to all!
Our Doodle of the Day:
Though we're no longer drawing up festive, Christmasy doodles, we do have some Christmas-related pieces to share with you over the next couple of days. What do we mean by that? We mean that we'll be sharing with you some doodles that we gifted to family for Christmas.
For today, we have a doodle that I created for my grandma and her husband. First we'll show you the doodle, and then we'll give you a brief explanation.
This doodle, which I turned into a refrigerator magnet for them, is meant to be a comical commentary on my grandma and her husband's living situation. You see, my grandma's husband really loves dogs, and they have two Boston terriers. And then there's my grandma, who loves cats and is often rescuing kitties and bringing them home. They have both dogs and cats, obviously, but they are one of those couples in that classic dog person vs. cat person relationship. So, that's why this is the doodle they got from me for Christmas.
Our Tip of the Day:
In the midst of freezing temperatures and winter storms, it is the perfect time to make sure that you have a winter emergency plan ready. Power outages can indeed happen in the winter, especially during strong winds or snow or ice storms. Such power outages can be extremely dangerous in the winter, as it often won't take long for a home to become unbearably and unhealthily cold without heating. So, do you have an emergency plan in the event that you lose power in the cold of winter? Do you have a backup generator, or another means of staying warm without power? Do you have somewhere pet-friendly to go if your house were to become powerless and dangerously cold? Do you have a plan for packing up and safely traveling with your furbaby in the case that you need to seek a safe and warm location? Consider these and any other important factors that would need to be addressed in a winter emergency. And of course also take into consideration other potential winter emergencies. Even if you don't lose power, do you have enough food, water, medications, and other necessities for your furbaby and yourself, in case you need to sit tight and ride out a winter storm? Winter emergencies can come in a number of forms, so always be prepared!
