From My Bookshelf
Happy Monday Friends, You all know my mind has been on dogs lately and blogville lost another one of our canine friends this last Sat. My friend, Kim at Life at Golden Pines, lost her precious golden Rudi. Heart felt sympathy was sent her way this weekend; it is so difficult to face the end of days with a beloved pet.
This last week I read Betty & Tom's book, which has been out for many years and it was so touching; had me in the first chapter. I have long known that Betty White is an animal lover and advocate and supports so many worthwhile organizations but this shed a new light on her home and her dogs. If you are in the need of a good read, check this book out.
We had a relaxed weekend and even found time for a ten mile bike ride yesterday; the weather was perfect and we so enjoyed ourselves. I'm hoping to get in another sometime this week.
Have a productive day today and remember to grab life with gusto for it passes us by too quickly.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
