My son took this picture with my daughter-in-love's
new Christmas camera. I thought it was such a good picture.
You get to see the wisdom in Sasha's eyes. I have always
had a dog in my life. My whole life. I believe, I have never
loved a dog like this. I love her for her gentleness with the babies
and for just being the best dog ever.
I warned you this is a rambling post. We have rain on our horizon
starting tonight at 4:00 a.m. and going until next Thursday.
To give you a idea we might get 10 inches of rain in a year.
A year. They have us getting 4 inches between tonight and Saturday
night with 8 inches by next week. With 15 feet of snow in the mountains.
We don't ever get rain like that. So I am pretty excited. I really like weather,
if I don't have to go any place.
I finally started a small mat to get back into rug hooking.
I am so slow. I feel like instead of just having two thumbs I
have ten. I can't seem to get my hands to obey me. I drop
my hook and I pull out and I start over. It is like starting over
at the beginning. But when I do sit and finally start getting it
I remember how addicting it is to sit and pull the "worms" through.
There was a fire in the wood stove and I am sitting by the Christmas
tree and the house is quiet except for the sound of the wood
popping in the stove and the sound of the flames dancing,
keeping me warm.
I hope to be able to sit and watch the rain and watch the fire
and sew and hook to my hearts content.
I can say with a thankful heart. " Find rest, O my soul, in
God alone; my hope comes from him."
Have a glorious Weekend.
