time...

I've written dozens of posts in the last several months.  Generally at night.  And in my head.  Not one of them was actually written down.  It's too bad, because I'm sure they were among my wittiest and most interesting posts.  Oh well.

I know I've thought a lot about the end of 2016.  I really couldn't wait for last year to be over.  Without going into a lot of detail, last year was a very difficult year - physically, mentally and in so many other ways.  And even though it's just an arbitrary date, I'm hopeful that 2017 will bring brighter days.

Unfortunately, it hasn't started out that way.  In November, our dear sweet Sam was diagnosed with cancer.  It was supposed to be slow growing and not metastasize, but she was gone in about 6 weeks.

Sept. 5, 2000 - Dec. 21, 2016
She was such a wickedly smart cat.  We have 4 other pets, but I think their collective IQ has dropped in half now that she's gone.  You could actively see her figuring things out.  (I have so many Sam stories.)  She also had a thing for potato chips.  If I opened a bag anywhere in the house, she'd immediately show up.  I'm having a hard time eating them now because they remind me of her so much.  We're grieving her loss right now and trying to adjust to not having her around.  She was a big part of our lives for 16 years, so it will take some time.

I have gotten back to quilting and there are even some quilts I worked on in 2016 that I never got around to blogging about.  Hopefully I can play catch up in the future.  Happy New Year everyone!

  2. I have been thinking about you Dee....... so sorry about Sam. However, you realize, she had the best life on earth she could have ever had, and that is all because of you and your husband. Hope you get some comfort in knowing that. Hope the new house and studio are what you always dreamed of!
