It was a rainy, dreary day here in real life. Mugsy and I did get to meet Abby, but as I feared, Mugsy didn't really get to meet little Abby, because he was too amped up and I was afraid he'd hurt her. She's darling, and TINY.
A family care package arrived today. Missing is the one skein of white SWS Michelle doesn't ever care to see again. I've read somewhere that for whatever reason, white and cream colored wools felt poorly, but at any rate, Michelle wasn't impressed with SWS and I look forward to mixing the difficult white with the another speedy felting color soon.
On left in the back is a cute variation on Footprints with human footprints and dog paw prints. Very appropriate. On the right are Mugsy's new favorite dog treats. Michelle's daughter picked them out, and they're a hit! Then, there are two beautiful mugs, another dog treat , several bags of the pumpkin spice tea I'd eyeballed at the store last weekend, and on top, the most precious little basset hound angel ornament you've ever seen. The face even looks a bit like Fred.
Thank you, Michelle. The timing was perfect; we opened your box at very nearly the same time we eased Fred out of his pain two weeks ago.
Earlier this week, I mentioned that Nicole sent a sweet pin with her card. Again, my lack of photo skills creates a less that ideal picture, but there you go. The verse reads
"A pet's love is true
right from the start,
Through good times and bad,
like sharing one heart."
I believe you can find your own at Dixie's Pet Project.
Thank you again, Nicole, and each of you who said a prayer, thought of us, left a comment, sent a card, or reached out to us in any other way. We have felt your continued support, and it is so sincerely appreciated.
Now, if you'll excuse us, Mugsy and I are off to have a pot of tea. (No, he doesn't drink tea, but he enjoys smelling it brew.) I wish each of you could join us! Wanna bet what my new favorite mug might look like?
(And the Knight will come home later to a cup of real hot chocolate in *HIS* mug.)
