I had planned to stay up watching TV in the living room until midnight last night, but Hiker was already getting scared from the noises going on outside around 10 pm. I kept hearing a noise that sounded like a 45 caliber or larger gun being shot starting around 9 pm.
I decided since Hiker was so frightened that I’d go to bed and let her hide under the covers. She would not go outside to go potty before bedtime even though I walked out there with her thinking maybe she’d calm down some, but she didn’t, so we came back inside and went to bed.
She was fine until about 11 pm when people started shooting off fireworks. She was running all around the bedroom and bathroom trying to find somewhere to hide. She jumped on the bed and went under the covers, but then there was a big boom and she came out and gout between the wall and my dresser in the corner and stayed there for a long time. She finally got back on the bed around 12:30.
Since she had not gone potty since around dinner time last night, I let her outside around 5:30 this morning. It was 27° on my patio at that time. We went back to bed and did not get up until 8 am and it was still only 29° at that time.
Had breakfast and then I balanced my check book, which took me about an hour because I was off by $30 and then remembered I had not written a mobile deposit in my checkbook.
Started watching the “Hart to Hart” marathon on Hallmark Movie and Mystery Channel, but then watched “Y&R” at 11:30 am. I was surprised that it was on since it is a holiday. Went back to “Hart to Hart” later.


  1. Poor Hiker. I do not like loud noises either and on New Years people do get carried away with making them. It was in the 20's here too. But that is mighty cold where you are, isn't it? HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  2. Happy New Year to you and yours... I hope that 2015 will bring you (and us) lots of joy, happiness and GOOD HEALTH....
