It’s been awhile since I’ve been here.

It’s been a time of loss.

First our beloved Goldendoodle, Stoffle, died. He was 14 /98.

Then, my mother-in-law, Martha, passed away. She was 94.

They are both sorely missed.

On a happier note, we got a Goldendoodle puppy! His name isĀ Angus.
He has brightened up our house and lives with his energy and amazing personality. Every day he makes us smile and laugh.

So, after a step back, I’m back.

Thank you to my blogger friend Nipa, fromĀ fashionipa, for noticing my absence and asking if I was okay.

I’ve missed this space. I’ve missed you.
