Hello - February Sucks Too

 Gosh, time is speeding by.

I returned last Wednesday from a week in CA helping darling daughter

and beau move in together. They are both completely slammed

 with work and zero time to pack, so Mom headed south.

I was so happy to help and touched that they trusted 

my skills, and lord knows this girl can pack and move folks

and help find ways to make it all fit in the new space.

Walter was, well Walterish, meaning sometimes he is so freaking

adorable and loving, and other times a complete JERK to strangers.

I did a lot of apologizing to folks, who he scared with a very bad attitude.

I was embarrassed, you know just like with a naughty child.

We need some additional training due to his first two years of life

 being totally isolated except for me. 

If he loves you he LOVES you, but fear kicks in with some dogs, and folks. 

We discovered however, that he loves cats and squirrels 

with not a bark or attack mode???

I had so many wonderful meals while there, mostly vegetarian

as all four of my "kids" are now ardently practicing.

My new goal for 2023 is to be as committed. 

I started this post last week and then February in all it's shit storm 

decided to deal another blow.

Yesterday, darling Daughter's beloved

Husky David, was diagnosed with very advanced cancer

with little hope of recovery. No advance warning at all,

other than last week him not being his jolly self.

David was exceptionally beautiful and so beloved.

Walks were always interrupted by strangers stopping to meet 

him and marvel over his demeanor.

A bar called The Garage was close to Hannah's old apt, and every walk

past the outdoor dining was met with calls to "David" "hello David!"-

few could have told you Hannah's name. 

Hannah is heartbroken and I am heartbroken for her.

I said in late December that I am not a fan of January, well

add February to my "done with" list.

Lots of other crap has come down the pike 

the last 27 days so goodbye month #2 

I am struggling to post anything, anywhere.

If it weren't for the few gals I am friends with, 

and can only communicate here with them or on IG,

I would be saying so long.

Then events like yesterday are recorded here on my journal

and I keep typing. 

I am still purging with increased vigor.

Today I am purging all jewelry making supplies,

it was never a favorite of mine, got caught up in the

enthusiasm of others- fabric and paper remain my interest always. 

I will be selling off all in a lot at bargain price.

Let me know if you are interested.
