Happy Thursday Friends~Firstly, yesterday just as hubby had taken this picture and I was on the way to my laptop, our friends arrived to pick us up for dinner and a concert-so there just wasn't time. I have to say the groomer apologized profusely when I got there to pick up our boy; it would seem that she was having a rough day and a schedule crammed with dogs that were breeds that take a long time to groom-two or three poodles, Hunter and a old heavy coated Cocker that it very difficult to groom. I have never seen her any way with the pups, other than kind and gentle, and I am choosing to give her another chance. I know we all have days like this and I want to be on the receiving end of grace if I need it, so I will give it to her. So today is Thankful Thursday and I am thankful that Hunter is nice and clean and groomed. Doesn't he just look so darn cute! Last evening we attended a Natalie Macmasters fiddle concert and let me tell you it was wonderful. I love fiddle but other than blue grass have never been to a concert of just fiddle music before. I didn't even know who Natalie is; what an entertaining show she puts on. A young mom(who happens to be gorgeous) to five children ages 7 yrs to 5 mos. who homeschools them-if this sounds familiar, it could be my daughter's bio. She is from Nova Scotia and sounds more Irish/Scottish than anything else. She is also a Step(Clog)dancer as well. Seeing her do the jig reminded me of seeing my mom do it when I was little. If you like fiddle music, check her out on U-Tube; if you ever get the chance to see her, by all means do.
This last week I have been fighting a boil in an area where you really don't want them. Boils aren't any fun! I've had to skip exercise and been loading up on vitamins to help heal it. Other than being uncomfortable, I have felt fine but told hubby if I got any more or if it got worse I was going to get a prescription for antibiotics. This morning I'm off to bible study and looking forward to it. I hope you have a glorious day filled with Thanks.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 37 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 38 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.
