Happy Thorsday, little friday, thankful thursday and first Junior League General Membership Meeting of the year! Needless to say, I’m a little scattered at the moment, but I did want to thank Bridget for the goodies I won in her bloggiversary contest. As you can tell by the title of the post, we were most excited about the Dogsbars. Dog for Dog’s Dogsbar is new to us, and the fur-girls have proclaimed it awesome, so now I must find more. (It operates on what I call the Toms theory; buy one, give one.)
If you want to actually SEE dogs on Thursday, you’ll need to click over and see the blooper-like photo from my attempt at a photo shoot.
Bridget didn’t know that I’ve been thinking maybe I need to reconnect with the sock mojo that had a lot to do with my knitting addiction, so I’m delighted to have a new book and some pretty sock yarn to inspire me. (There are in fact, two of everything except the book, so much yarn and a bar per dog, not that Sissy thinks that’s fair. Sissy believes they should share each bar, with her getting the lion’s share, because is both larger and the Queen… and in fact, that’s how we roll in the Woods, because Sissy is the alpha dog and Gretchen is quite a bit smaller… and almost plump.)
So, I’m most grateful for Bridget’s very generous prize, but I’m really very touched that she – that anyone – is aware enough of me, my blog, the furgirls, their blog, and Sissy’s tremendous run of food allergies. It was a truly special package!
I’m also very thankful for the incredible leadership team in the JLC. I’m moved beyond words by the dedication so many of these women have to our organization, by their continued above and beyond performances. It makes the tough jobs a little nicer when you are shoulder to shoulder with women who are willing to give a lot extra and share the same vision for what we are here do to.
Now, back to collecting my thoughts and preparing my remarks for tonight. What are you thankful for today?
