Tears and Joys

Well, it's been a rough week, to say the least. We had to say good-bye to our sweet Ruby on Monday. That crushed my heart to let her go even though I knew she was ready. She went so peacefully. I held her in my arms, heard her last sigh, kissing her sweet face the entire time, soaking her fur with my tears. I miss her terribly but I am thankful she's not struggling or suffering any more. She's off playing with her sister Willow, happy and whole--we will see them again someday in a much better place.

Then as life would have it, our Tucker turned three yesterday, so we had to celebrate in spite of sadness...I picked up a couple chewie bones for him to share with Pea. He, of course, gobbled his in less than a minute, then moped while Sweet Pea took her own precious time, daintily nibbling on hers. I swear she went slower just to torture her brother...

Back when he was but a babe:

A face that just speaks trouble...
And now three years old--and still full of trouble and mischief!
I did finally break out the sketchbook and play a little. I did an exercise from Joanne Sharpe's online lettering course from Facebook:

I still need to color it, bringing it along with us this weekend so maybe I'll get to play then...
And a couple Scripture doodles from my Whispers of Hope prayer journal:

We are heading to New Haven, CT to celebrate thirteen years of crazy wedded bliss today. We're attending the first annual 4B Fest (the four B's being: Bourbon, Bacon, Beer, and Barbecue) Bill is beside himself, he's so excited! And I am happy for him. This is his version of a night with Stephen King, which he sat through for me the year before last, so I get it. His sister and her hubby who live in New Haven are coming with us, so it should be a lot of fun. I'll only be partaking of two B's--the bacon and barbecue, but that will be plenty enjoyable for me!
But first, off to hit the water for a row this morning, and Bug has to go bowling, then we're off! Have a great weekend--I believe we certainly will!
