My Two Good Buddies

Today was such a marvelous day that I decided to take a walk with my two good buddies. I felt guilty, anyways, after having them" cooped up" in the car while I visited my dentist. However, Spedo & Mocha are two very forgiving little critters and they appreciated my attention, not counting the fact that every stick, bush, whatever was showing they had to sniff and "piddle" on them. But it is wonderful owning them. I love them to pieces.....

My New Year's Resolution is not working out very well. I promised that I would post every few days but since my Mother-in-law passed away, it seems I can't buckle down to doing anything. However, today we decided to kick each other in the butt and get moving and are in the process of making "Sweet & Sour Moose Meat"....have no idea what it will be like but I am trusting to my good friend that it is as delicious as she says it is. My mat hooking has gone by the wayside, but I WILL get back at it real soon..

I am posting a photo of the Mat I gave my Son and his family and they had it done with this rustic looking frame. I think it is quite nice and thought I would share it with you all....

Happy Hooking!!!!

My Donation

I'm not sure how many of you will remember that I donated a mat which I call "12 Icons of Newfoundland" to my local Church Group to raise much needed funds. Today I learned that a total of $539.00 was raised by selling tickets on it and I am very pleased seeing that I live in a tiny community of less than two hundred people. Needless to say, the committee members are also pleased. So you see, our work does help!!!

A Tribute to My "Other Mother"

Last Sunday, I lost one of the most precious people in my life. My mother-in-law passed away at the ripe old age of 92. In the 40+ years that I knew her, she never spoke a "cross" word to me. It may surprise some of you to know that not a word of disagreement ever came between us. We had a wonderful relationship and she always said I was her Daughter rather than an "in-law". She was a gentle, patient, kind woman who had gained a wealth of knowledge over her years with raising eleven children in very difficult times.
She was my mentor, confidant, teacher and most of all my Friend. I will miss her terribly.
Rest in Peace, MOTHER....
