this and that

Well, it has been a busy couple of weeks!

Thank you so much to everyone who posted such lovely comments on my last post. We still miss Boonie so much...I still expect to trip over him when I come downstairs in the morning (he always slept right in my path and I never turned on the lights!) and I miss seeing him waiting for me after work. And eating our first pizza without him was crust was his favorite treat...I don't think I have had any crust in the past twelve years! We got a beautiful card from our vet yesterday which was very sweet...there were a few more tears too, but he will always be in our hearts. Our other puppy (well, he's not really a puppy...he's also 12) was lucky enough to have my daughter's two doggies to play with while we were on vacation, so we came home to a happy boy.

Jeff and I were lucky enough to go to Hawaii for a much needed vacation last week. We stayed on the beach in Waikiki and just relaxed and acted like beach bums for the whole was heavenly! We even got to renew our vows at a ceremony on the was really lovely.

And now it's back to work...this week has sped by. My director is at a conference so I have been "in charge"...always fun. And it is National Library Week so we all got to wear  library themed t-shirts all week...easy peasy dressing!

If I am correct, this is Hermitting weekend, and I am planning to do just that. I received an out of print Blackbird Designs pattern ...Blessings Be Thine....and I would love to get to it this weekend. I have everything all ready to go...just need to get the time to stitch! So hopefully, I will have some progress to show next week. are a few snaps from our trip...

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and thanks again for your good thoughts.

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
