I've just been feeling a bit down for the past couple of months.
Part of the grieving process, I imagine, because it isn't like me. Not for that long. Then the new year arrived and I decided it was time for me to find my way back to joy, so I set to work on myself and now I'm feeling much better.
Samson says: Good mommy, and don't forget you always have us. Me and that little thing, look at her out in the wilderness:
Yes, Samson, she's so small and running so fast all over the place. But she's both cautious and fierce, so I let her run, knowing she's having the best life.
My second eye surgery went well, but I have a slight inflammation in that eye, the left eye. It doesn't affect my vision, but I have to continue with the eye drops until the end of this month, then be checked by the local doctor here. Hopefully, I will be fine.
I'm so in love with this little girl.
It snowed yesterday and last night so we went out early and played in it. Snow melts almost immediately here at 4000 feet, creating a huge mess on my road to the main road. Fortunately that road is not long, about an 8th of a mile, I think. But when it's part lake, part muddy mess, it's no fun.
We play in the snow while we can,
then we come in and snuggle on the couch.
Mary made this barn quilt for me for Christmas and I treasure it. I put it on the wood wall to the side of my fireplace and it cheers up a dark corner there. The colors are blue and yellow, not as dark as in the picture.
Finally, thank you my friends for your emails, cards, and comments. I feel bad that you were wondering how I was doing and I may not have replied. I want to wish you all a very happy new year and I will stay in touch.
