Busy Is A Goode Thing!


Yesterday proved to be challenging, to say the least. I had been working between meals,schedules and appointments with the girls and my parents. It was the last of the Girl's Basketball season at school, and the beginning of dialysis three times a week for my Dad. I was later than I would have liked getting my new friends here up on TDIPT, but once they went up I was so excited to see them! This is Fooey, named after my Uncle's cat with the same attitude.
This sweet little bunny was so fun with her twiggy arms and feet and simple grace.


And finally, dear Corkey. Her stance and way about her reminded me of a dear friend's Mom. We would go traipsing through the woods at all different times of the year. She point out certain flowers and herbs. Sometimes we would go gathering for good eats such as fiddle head ferns. I never forgot these things that she taught us, and I still gather the fiddle heads in the spring for a tasty treat!


I had a lot of fun with these friends, but there are new ones too in various stages. I can't wait to get my chores done and another cup of coffee so that I can work on them! It's a beautiful sunny day out and I have been sneaking out to feel the warmth on my face. It's only mid February and we will have more snow ahead, so days like this are cherished!
