But wait– lucky for me there are people whose lives follow in an orderly fashion and who manage to post about their time in a creative workshop within two weeks . . go here for Helen’s write-up: HenHouse. She is so lovely– as were all the people I met in class. Be sure to check out her emporium website if you are partial to pretty quilts– hers are wonderful.
I had all the right intentions yesterday– I DID have a hot coffee at the ready. That was before I had to take Daisy to the emergency room and lost half a day to find out my dog does not have a foreign object stuck in her nasal cavity, but in fact has a very bad cold.
Who knew? I’ve had dogs for 20+ years and never saw one have a cold before. Unlike humans where it first surfaces with a few sniffles, perhaps a cough or sneeze— Daisy spent Tuesday night at the foot of my bed in violent (rather scary for me) and loud coughs that ended with a round of vomit. It came on like a hurricane so I called the vet who insisted I take her down to ER to get x-rays to make sure there was nothing in her air ways that she had ingested.
Lolo is keeping care of the hearth and beasts– and, most especially, keeping her aunt dressed with her face washed and pointed in the right direction. Maybe this is how it goes sometimes? Maybe next week will be a stretch of calm and normalcy and a bag of stories for the offering like so many caramels?
We can only hope— I miss you guys– sorry to be so sketchy—
