As I reflect back on 2014, I have many happy memories of traveling, spending time with my friends and family, and riding with the top down on my new (to me) car.

2006 PT Cruiser

Having to let Hanna go to the bridge was my saddest memory. Heidi and are are adjusting nicely and spending lots of quality time together.  I am so thankful for her! I don't plan to add another corgi as long as I have Heidi.  

I don't know about you, but I'd like to fast forward to spring now.  I planted about forty tulips last year and can't wait to see them blooming.  January and February are always long and dismal to me. I didn't read much in 2014 but I hope to in the next few months.  If you have any suggestions of  "good reads", please forward them to me.

Happy New Year to you and your families!

Final Tribute to My Beautiful Hanna

Last Thursday, with the help of my wonderful vet, my Hanna went to the bridge.  She suffered from complications of Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) and was in constant pain that couldn't be controlled by medication.  Her corgi sister, Heidi, and I miss her terribly.  She was six months old when Heidi came to live with us and they were always best buddies.  She was my first corgi and my "heart dog."
