Getting Through

Thank you for everyone's very kind comments- Sometimes when I think I am just being ridiculous and that I should just get over it, I re-read your comments and am reminded that I am not the only one to feel this way, that plenty of you understand...
This week will be a challenge- oldest daughter has gone back to college, youngest daughter goes back to school on Wednesday (as a high school sophomore!), but no furry daughter here to keep me company. It will be very quiet here. I used to complain that I couldn't get anything done during the day, because I was interrupted every 10 minutes by Daisy, who wanted to go out, and then wanted to come in, and then wanted a treat..... but now, I'd just give anything.... to take her for a walk, to pet her soft fur, just one more time..... I managed to put a few things away over the weekend, but her basket of toys remains in the corner, I can't bring myself to put them away just yet.

So life goes on... I have several new patterns I have been working on, and hopefully in the next week or two I will get them up on the website. Maybe I will do a sneak peek here soon. Quilt Market is at the end of October, but I'm sure it will be here before I know it, so I really need to get to work on some stuff. And there are a couple of upcoming fabric lines to work on, so I should have plenty to keep me busy. Distraction is a very good thing.

I hope I am not too much of a downer..... I know I will get back into the swing of things, it will just take me a little more time. Enjoy this last bit of summer... I am trying to think of something fun for youngest daughter and I to do before she goes back to school in a couple of days. She will probably be happy to stay home in the air conditioning (today starts our 8th heat wave for this summer.) Maybe a quick walk around the park before it heats up too much today. Whatever you do today, enjoy it. Have a good Monday.


  1. My youngest started college this past Thursday. And although he is commuting, I really miss him already. He has a pretty heavy load for his first semester.

  2. My youngest starts college on Weds. That just leaves me and the cat during the day...It's going to be soooo quiet and I'm afraid, quite lonely. I can't believe that I'm embarking on a new stage in my life! Glad you posted as I was wondering how it was going with you. Keeping busy is good but take the grieving too.

  3. Sorry to read about your dear Daisy. Maybe your DD would enjoy going out for an ice cream. ;-) Our youngest has been in college for a couple weeks now, and our DD leaves this weekend. The house will certainly be quiet, but I have lots of boxes to unpack. :-/ Have a good weekend!

  4. The hardest part of this week without Roscoe is getting used to the silences. I keep listening for the click, click of his paws on the wood floor. No, you are not alone.
    And keeping busy is a good thing.

    Hugs again

  5. I am crying with yoiu and for your dear Daisy. Don't ever think you will never have another dog. I look at it this way-Daisy showed you jsut how wonderful animals are and how they fill your lives with happiness. Daisy showed you haow relationships are meant top be. Give you r love to another dog perhaps a shelter dog and save a life
    from one animal lover to another (the cat's lying on the mouse making this computer hard to use !- haha)
