Chinella & John at the Fair

Here's John and Chinella after their costume class at the Alma Fair last Monday.

Posting here has been difficult for the last month and I'm not totally sure why. It is somehow related to Smitty's death (8/21/08), but I just don't understand how the upcoming anniversary is keeping me from blogging.
I am doing sort of a weird thing but it feels necessary..... Everyday I check my calendar from a year ago to see what was going on. A year ago Thursday we checked him back into the hospital for his last stay there and this coming Wednesday was when he came home - with Hospice's help.
All these little anniversarys are helpful to remind me of all that has changed and how grateful I am to my family, friends, and dear 4-leggeds.

Maple, these are all appropriate grieving behaviors. I was wondering why you hadn't posted, I check every day. My heart is with you. Whenever I work with your fibers or yarns I think of the wonderful person who provided them. Smitty is thinking of you as you think of him.

It is completely understandable. I still get sad around the time my dad passed away and that was over 20 years ago. It is hard when you lose someone you love.

I hope you are taking good care of yourself. You deserve the time.
