Thank you, Cheryl--I was encouraged by your comments today. this is a hard time for me right now--growing pains aren't just for children, are they? I'm feeling a lot of hurt, but it's something important enough to hurt over. there is so much love underlying all of it that I believe this dear one and I will get past this swamp and through to the other side.
Hi Cherly, Thanks for the encouragement. I thought of you recently and your penchant for rescuing stray cats, if I remember correctly. DH found a mostly starved barn kitten doing its best to get away from the dog. Poor little thing. He brought it in and we fed it and loved on it and then took it back to a safe place in the barn so if mama came back, she would be there. (We shut the dog out of the barn.) Mama must have met an untimely end, because she never came back to claim it and we could find no other kittens the same size/age as this one. That was a couple months ago. You would not believe the difference from the bony, little thing to the fluffy, half-grown cat we have now. She's a beauty. She mixes well with the wild barn cats and still likes to curl up in our laps for attention as well. We've not had a tame cat around here for a long time. It's been fun. Hope your family is all doing well.
Sounds like you are ready for a vacation! If, you get close to the Syracuse area...give me a call 315-662-7282...We could meet half way. But, know that when you get to the lake, you just want to be a slug! Enjoy!!!!
Well congratulations! I know what you mean about not turning on the computer when you get home. I'm soooooo lucky that I can visit quilting related sites during the work day - research you know! haha The job is going really well, the knee is moving along very slowly and I've only unpacked necessities...which of course means parts of my sewing room! One of these days I'll get it organized, but I'm spending much of my weekends exploring and learning the area, which I also love.
