I mentioned it yesterday, but one year ago today, we brought home our sweet Gretchen Greer.
There’s so much to love in that tiny package, but if I had to pick just one thing, it would be her courage. She’s not fearless, as most Jack Russells are, but my heart swells when I watch her suck it up and “just do it.” I’m sure that and her deep love for and her tremendous devotion to her pack sustained her on that dark, long night when she was separated from us.
I could spend all day talking about Gretchen, but there’s more ground to cover! Felicia has donated another prize to the pool, but you’ll just have to wait to see what it is. Please do enter as many different ways as you can, because there are a host of great prizes. This really is a big blessed bash!

Here we go! Why do I love blogging? Well, I’ve kept a journal almost since I learned to write. Seriously… I think my first diary dates back to age six or so. Blogging has replaced my journal-keeping, mainly due to time constraints. They’re not the same thing, by any means. When I scribbled in my journal, I was generally trying to sort things out on paper that I couldn’t work through in my heart and/or mind. Here, I just share rather randomly, although I do try to protect a few details, just because the web casts a wide net.
I’ve been lucky enough to meet several of you, and honestly, I count a few of my blogging pals as “best friends.” I don’t go to a knit night, but I don’t feel I’m missing out too much, because I have a great community of knitting friends right here in whichever computer I’m using.
I had more planned for today’s post, but that’s long enough. I don’t want your eyes to glaze over. I’m very excited about my rainy weekend, which I’ve already covered ad nausem, so just skip right ahead and tell me about your weekend plans!
