Getting Through and Gearing Up
It was one of those days when you feared giving a hug, because it would induce a bucket full of tears.
Thankfully, we have other dogs and cats (and a rabbit) that kindly give therapy to those in need. Jesse seems to be the top therapy dog for Oldest Daughter. Even the barns cats are providing therapy.
Getting through it is the toughest part. Accepting it.
A dozen golden yellow roses are on the table in remembrance of Sadie.
We'll be keeping her (Oldest Daughter) busy today, as we load the porch with wood. We are gearing up for a big storm. It's not going to be as bad as the East coast, but it will bring more than six inches of snow.
I think a nice roasted chicken is in order for a comforting dinner tonight.
It's the last day of January, and my netting is not completely cut into strips. Maybe after we get the wood re-stocked, I can meet my personal deadline on that project.
