Dog Days of Summer





Life is slowly coming back to normal around here. There are the sad
moments, and the happy ones. Death is not easy, one must let go and
remember the wonderful times.

Saturday Connie and I decided we
needed to escape from all that has been going on in our lives. So off
we headed. There was only really 5 or 6 sales. We hit them, and I
bought a new rug for the dining room. Much like the one I had, but
these colors are more vibrant.

When I returned home from saling,
my husband asked me to run to Lancaster with him. The dog needs a new
dog house. So I agreed, but only if we could sale on the way. He
grinned, and off we went.

I found three really nice items. Napco Alice In Wonderland from 1956. A wonderful Italian dish, NO CRACKS!!! Not even the flower petals. Also a bird.??? What am I going to do with that bird. Guess I will have to look for some more bird cages.

When
we returned home with new dog house, I decided to use an old school
desk ( had been re-paired so many times, no real value left) that I
made the dog a dinner table all of his own. Came out pretty nicely.

Oh my goodness! I've been out of pocket the last couple of weeks and just checked on you. I am SO Sorry to hear about your nephew. Losing a child has to be the most traumatic thing for one to have to go through. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. The Lord understands because He too lost his son. Blessings to you and yours. Vickie
