Thank you so much to all of you who wrote with words of encouragement after my last post
about us losing dear Daisy.
Daisy was Violet's full sister but she lived with my Mom.
So I'm doing ok...I loved her but she didn't live here and was not part of my every day.
I also feel that a big part of my frustration of late...is I'm not finding time to be creative.
I vowed to find the time....but this week my days off were filled up again.
First with Daisy's funeral.
We buried her at my Mom's
(Mom dug for two days, day three I was able to come help and finish)
and then on Friday Mom and I decided we needed a day of fun.
We went to see...
I'd already seen it but Mom hadn't.
I loved it even more this second time.
But poor Mom...she had in her head that we were seeing The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
and she kept waiting for Judy Dench and Maggie Smith to show up.
It added to her confusion because they showed a preview for the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
just before the movie.
Before the movie...we shopped at the new Von Maur.
That was really a treat. We hit the sale racks and declared it a great day!
Oh...my I love that store!
Oh...best thing about Von Maur?...the Ladie's Lounge!
It was sooooo pretty!
I got emails from a couple of companies this week asking if I'd try out their products
in exchange for blog posts and that made me feel needed.
My spirits are lifted due in no small part to all of the super nice emails and comments
I received from all of you.
Thanks so much!
