It's Over

Today was the last day at my shop. It is officially over. My last class was held Thursday night and it is all pretty bittersweet for me.

Also Thursday night hubby and I lost our little old man. Our Miniature Schnauzer, Sir Buckingham Bolling (we called him Buck), left us quietly and now rests on our property in a beautiful spot underneath the apple trees. The grief has been overwhelming. He was our very first baby together and we are both pretty shook to lose such a dear friend. Our lives are better for having him in them for so long, though. We'll never, ever forget him.

And as Forest Gump said, "that's all I've got to say about that".

Tomorrow the packing and getting ready begins in earnest after a quick ride up to see my dear friend Carole at Orchardside Yarn Shop in Raphine, VA. I just can't leave without saying bye to her.

Please remember to vote on Tuesday, I already have.

Have a great weekend and I'll talk to you all again from China sometime next week!
