Birthday boy!

Wishing this handsome fella

Happy early 13th Birthday!

Yes! That’s my Chief!

See the top of the five pointed white star on his chest?

Fitting since his birthday is Christmas- December 25th!

I can recall the day my son brought him home!

“Happy Birthday, mom!”, He said. Then added jokingly, “you can have the back half and I’ll take the front”!

Chief, the puppy, looked like a little black bear cub!

These days he’s more like a bull in a china shop! Add BIG LOVE BUG and that’s the Chiefster!!

He’s a Husky/ Shepard mix!

One year, early spring, side of the roads were still sandy! Chief and I went for a walk down the giant hill in front of our home in NH.

Well, he caught a glimpse of his barking buddy down the hill and OFF he scrambled. Me? I couldn’t get my footing! I knew it was face first or butt first!

Split second choice! I relaxed like a skier going over glare ice and landed on my backend!

He proceeded to pull me the rest of the way down the tar roadway and onto the neighbor’s grassy yard! ( about 75 feet)

Who knew grass could feel so dang good?!?!??

My head cleared and I commanded “SIT”!

He did!

Thank the heavens I was wearing blue jeans! Nothing hurt but a bit of pride.

I got up, told him let’s go home. We headed back up the hill for home! ☺️

Wander

Oh how my heart

Sings

Filled with glorious

Memories.

A captured lifetime

Array

Of Pictures,

My family

Now living above

Or grown and scattered.

A fabulous afternoon

Of wandering

Sweet visuals of

Times that were.

Photography

Captures

Precious moments

Forever carried within

My heart.

What a wonderful

Way to spend a day!

Celebrating the old

Whilst clearing a path

Towards an exciting new.

Kind Regards

It just keeps a coming! 11.18.18

As I continue my quest to ready myself for the move from NH to NC.

🎈

Who knew?

Between my parent’s stuff and my children’s stuff from birth through school days into adulthood!

Add years of all my crafts, sewing, woodworking along with miniatures in the 1/12th scale!

Sorting and sorting from nooks, crannies, totes, closets and file cabinets. All tucked away in the garage, storage and closets!

Am I a hoarder or a sentimental Ol’ fool?

Bring on more Kleenex, I’m diving in again!

😳😒

Chief’s special gift

Yesterday, Mother Nature delivered my beloved husky a special gift.

The beauty of a seasonal first snow fall, complete with, chill you through to the bone, winds.

His favorite season. Often he begs to go out, at least eleven times plus, on a snow day!

He’ll be 13 this Christmas. He’s slowed down quite a bit in the last few months.

Then there are moments like yesterday, when he is filled with puppy like exuberance. Which he pays for with 3 plus hour naps afterwards.

Bittersweet moments these days, as I pack. I’m not sure if the move is going to be too much for him.

He senses my inner struggles, with my past visions of a different scenario, for this move. Which, unfortunately is no longer an option. Not my choice. But one, I have to live with. The only person in my control, is me. πŸ˜‰

So New England, once again, I shall be leaving in the very near future.

I’ll be back to visit someday.

For now, It’s my time to journey on…

Kind Regards and putting one foot in front of the other- K

Changes 10.29.18

Exciting and scary all at the same time.

My house is being shown this coming weekend.

I’m sorting and boxing up 28 years of my NH life. Getting ready for a change.

Actually, it goes further back if you count the items and memories saved from the sale of my childhood home in early 2000.

Mixed emotions.

Sadness, thankfulness and mindfully staying open to new adventures.

If everything falls into place, a month from now, I shall be living near my youngest granddaughter!

At only 4 1/2, what a delight it will be to be a regular part of her life, instead of flying in every 6 months and FaceTime chats and dinners!

Bittersweet, selfishly wanting both things at once. My home and the freedom to travel to see her every week.

I’ll will keep you posted!

Kind Regards – K
