February Monthly News

Welcome to the February edition of monthly news!
Happy Leap Year!
Leap Year will never be the same for me. At 1pm est today, the dog I walk daily for the last 3 years has been put to rest. Between old age and severe allergies, she couldn't do it anymore. So rather than suffer, she is now in an eternal slumber. R.I.P. Missy. I'll miss you so much.

  1. Sorry to hear about Missy, she looks like she was an adorable, sweet tempered dog.

  2. I'm sorry to hear about Missy. It's always so hard to put an animal down, even when it's so they won't suffer. Hugs to you.

  6. Always sad when an animal has to be put down, but better than if suffering. My 91 year old Dad has just adopted a stray cat that was starving but friendly. Hope it works out for both of them. Have read one Terri Blackstock that I enjoyed but so long ago!

  7. Oh, how sad. We had to put my dog to sleep last year on Mother's Day (we were also celebrating my daughter's 11th birthday). As you can imagine, that put a damper on the celebrations. But we loved him and we know he's better off since he had gotten to the point where he couldn't stand. :-(

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.
