My dear cat Arnie passed away on December 15, suddenly, of heart failure after battling hyperthyroidism. I know those of you who have pets understand. He was with me for 17 years, came out of the woods and adopted us, became a part of our hearts. He was the sweetest little guy, and life just won't be the same without him. He had a great life with us, and I do think he gave us more than we did him. What a cat!
We muddled along through the holidays, mostly at home alone, and now have to get going on work again. Today I am going into my sewing room and maybe crank up the machine and get the oil moving, and see if I can still remember how to quilt. It is bitter cold here in Wisconsin so have no urge to go out and about.
Wishing all of you the very best for 2010, see you in class!
