I’m very sorry for having been so quiet recently. It seems like my world has exploded with both positive and not-so-positive events. Where do I start?!
I guess I’ll start with the not-so-positive to get it out of the way. It actually does have a happy ending. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that I am a HUGE dog lover. I have two dogs, Kirby and Panzer, but they live with my mom. When I left the “bad place”, they needed a safe place to stay. I have since acquired a place where I can technically have them. But they’re happy with Mom and she’s happy with them. Kirby came into my life 15 years ago on May 22nd. He is my first “baby boy.” He went EVERYWHERE with me. He was by my side through the darkest times, often my reason for getting out of bed. Well, two weeks ago Wednesday, we thought we were going to lose him. It appeared that he had had a stroke. I was prepared to say goodbye to him on Thursday. We took him to the vet and she told us that he had Old Dog Vestibular Disease. It looks an awful lot like a stroke, but it’s not. The chances of recovery are VERY HIGH. It’s been up and down with him, but he’s doing pretty good. He was a little weak today, but this knocked the stuffing out of him. Long story short… This was a miracle!
The day I was sitting in the vet’s office with Mom and Kirby trying to decide his fate, my phone rang. I didn’t answer it. There was a message. When I listened to it I found out that I won a bursary!!!!!!! I AM NOW ENROLLED IN THE INTERMEDIATE SPINNING PROGRAM AT FLEMING!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I will be sharing my experiences there when I go in August. I am so excited! And so grateful!
Last, but not least… I am working feverishly to stock up Finnegan Lake Gallery, Kinmount Artisans Marketplace and Fibres with some quality, unique items. And I’m having a blast! I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback and ideas for some new projects. One thing I want to try is turning slippers into shoes. I found a pattern for that on Ravelry and I’m looking forward to trying it (I don’t have the link handy, but I will post it when I start working on them).
So many wonderful, positive things going on! And there’s a moral to the story… Be careful what you wish for because it may just happen! The other one is if you’re passionate about something and your intentions are loving and clear, the Universe (God or whatever unseen force you believe in) will line it up for you!
