Hello from Alaska!

What a crazy week we’ve had. A nasty cold has made it’s way through most of us….. I think germs should know not to bother people on vacation…. it should be a rule.

We made a trip to the E.R. after our sweet Miss Seven was bit by a dog!! I won’t share the picture, but it was bad. My poor girl has two puncture wounds and some nasty bruising on her calf. No stitches were needed and thankfully she was not hurt worse. I was totally impressed by her bravery, she has handled the whole thing very, very well. The best part was when she looked at me in the E.R. room and said “mama, people should not have dogs if they aren’t nice like Sid.” I wholeheartedly agree.

In the midst of all the above, we have had some great adventures too….. and the tide pool, gnome seeking, rock collecting, beach combing adventures have begun. Those walks at low tide are one of the things my kids look forward to the most. They definitely inherited their mama’s love of treasure hunting.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend….. can’t wait to share the knitting project next week!
