Friends, Work, Cats…These Three…

And the greatest of these is friends (cats are fur-friends!), to paraphrase.

I want to thank all of you for your comments of support after last week’s post about the end of my relationship. I’ve spent the past week recovering from a nasty bug, that probably snagged me because I was in a state of shock.

But enough, it’s over, and time to move on to better things. The worst is past. I have the best friends in the world, including my daughter and my cats! Big thank-yous to you all, for reminding me that life does indeed go on, and better things are around the corner. We just have to assume they will be there, proceed as if they are, and voila! They ARE!

Work is not waiting for me to recover from this bug. But it’s wonderful to bury myself in it…bags, bags, bags! The wonderful Star City Cat Fanciers’ Cat Show is July 2-3 and I’ve just received an invitation to the National Capital Cat Show in September at the Expo Center in Chantilly, Virginia. I’m hoping to go and if you’re near either venue, stop by and check out Nana Sadie Rose’s cat bags…this is where I started, this is my true love (even as I love all fabrics!!!). Sometime soon, I’ll take a group shot of some of the bags that will be at the Star City show.

Knitting? Well…I’m not doing as much as I’d like, but I did get in a few inches on the Easy Ripple Baby Afghan – which is good, because little Mady is due next month! I’ve got another skein to knit up before it’s finished, too…I also had to frog an entire repeat plus 4 rows of the Triangle Lace Shawl – so what you see in the photo down below is as far as I am. (A word to the wise, when using a lifeline, frog gently.) That’s what I get for working on it when I was sick with a fever! Another lesson? Knit only mindless things when seriously sick!

Have a great weekend everyone!

sallee,
e-mail me (melanie_harmelingATsbcglobalDOTnet) when you get a moment-- can't find your e-mail. I swear I'll add it to my address book this time! ;-)
Hugs,

Sallee I have been so overwhelmed by finishing out the school year and immediately starting a new job (all on the same day, Monday), that I haven't kept up on my reading. I am sorry to hear of your anguish... I do wonder if aging makes women become more compassionate, hence more progressive, while making men more conservative (now, I will probably just stir up trouble with that statement!).

I loved the bags for autism; really fabulous color combo. Now, write me back and tell me what RAOK stands for, and never forget you are WORTH more than that.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
