Thank You ~

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all your sweet comments and emails concerning Ellie's mom.  They mean so much to me.  Though this still feels like a bad dream, I find comfort in reading them.

Sorry for the delay in choosing a winner of the year's subscription to Midwest Living magazine. Congrats to long time follower, Debbie of WoolenSails.  Please send me your snail mail address and I will get your subscription entered.

It's still cold, damp and dreary in northern Ohio. Not the first day of spring I was hoping for.  That darned groundhog sure lied to us this year.  I say, "off with his head".

Thank you for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Horrible weather we're's affecting the whole country!!!! Awful, awful groundhog...he needs to be fired or banned from any future "predicting"!

We are having groundhog stew up in Maine. Congrats to Debbie!

I have rain today on this first day of spring. Though not snow. I hope your yard gets filled with robins soon.
I have thought and thought about you. Sending a hug from me to you.

hi lauren..just stopping by to see what you have been up too. i refuse to sit at the computer til evening, and then i tend to dose as im always trying to catch up. im soo very sorry to hear of your friend and sending lots of thoughts and prayers... life, pretty tough at times... take care my blogging friend.

Kim said...

Ive had some issues with the groundhog today too. Despite the less than ideal weather I hope you still managed to enjoy your day (wink)

Julia said...

Thinking of you and poor Ellie. She must sense that her mom is not coming home. I was wondering what will become of her now...

About that groundhog, maybe you can make groundhog stew and feed it to the dogs. I guess mother nature is as much to blame for the groundhog's confusion. Everything is out of wack with the weather.

Hope you are soon getting signs of spring.

So sorry about your dear friend.
Wishing you sunny days ahead. Congrats to Debbie.

Deb said...

I'm so far behind on blog reading that I didn't know about Ellie's mom. That is so sad!!

We're still cold here too. Do you think that spring is ever going to get here?

Julia said...

I hope that you were showered with lots of love by family and friends yesterday.

Congratulations to Debbie for winning the magazine drawing.
