when it starts to get comical


So, there's no hot coffee to my right and I am a quick hop down the highway from my white chair, it seems. End result? No stories today--

But wait-- lucky for me there are people whose lives follow in an orderly fashion and who manage to post about their time in a creative workshop within two weeks . . go here for Helen's write-up: HenHouse. She is so lovely-- as were all the people I met in class. Be sure to check out her emporium website if you are partial to pretty quilts-- hers are wonderful.

I had all the right intentions yesterday-- I DID have a hot coffee at the ready. That was before I had to take Daisy to the emergency room and lost half a day to find out my dog does not have a foreign object stuck in her nasal cavity, but in fact has a very bad cold.

Who knew? I've had dogs for 20+ years and never saw one have a cold before. Unlike humans where it first surfaces with a few sniffles, perhaps a cough or sneeze--- Daisy spent Tuesday night at the foot of my bed in violent (rather scary for me) and loud coughs that ended with a round of vomit. It came on like a hurricane so I called the vet who insisted I take her down to ER to get x-rays to make sure there was nothing in her air ways that she had ingested.

Oops-- hang on-- boarding call. Am at the airport and headed to join Jen and Michelle in Florida . .. I know, the life, right?

Lolo is keeping care of the hearth and beasts-- and, most especially, keeping her aunt dressed with her face washed and pointed in the right direction. Maybe this is how it goes sometimes? Maybe next week will be a stretch of calm and normalcy and a bag of stories for the offering like so many caramels?

We can only hope--- I miss you guys-- sorry to be so sketchy---


Bisous, e


  1. I never knew dogs could get colds - I always heard that dogs bodies can store vitamin C, unlike humans and therefore they 'never' get colds... hope your sweet Daisy is mending quickly - safe and happy travels!

  2. Glad the pup is ok, that is scary. Have fun and give each other big hugs from me.


  3. Poor Daisy...and poor you! I have never seen a dog with a cold either. Weird. Have a great trip (again!).

  4. oh, poor little daisy...and poor you, sounds like it was scary. hope the cold passes quickly.
    so appreciated this little blip from you today. :)
    happy travels!

  5. Good lord, how awful for Daisy (and you!) My cats used to get colds once in awhile...the sneezes were godawful.


thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with me-- I love that you stopped by and hope something I shared was what you needed today. xo, e
