I'm back!

Lots of living has taken place since my last post! I'm sorry to have left you for so long but hopefully my blogging hiatus is behind me. I was transferred to another office in September and my part time job became a lot more part time than I had bargained for. Things are returning to a more normal pace and I'm getting back to the things that I love.

When I last left you, we had just lost our beloved Heidi. This past fall brought the passing of our 18 year old cat, Klaus, as well. Although 2009 was a year of good-byes, there was also a major hello as well!

In October, we opened our home to another rescue German Shepherd named Hans. He is a 1 year old ball of energy and has brought lots of laughs and love to our home. He and Fiona get along well although she had to relinquish her alpha dog status, which took some getting used to. We're all looking forward to spring (or at least the snow melting) so we can get back to the battlefield for our long walks!

I have continued to enjoy the time that I am able to spend hooking and promise to share some pictures soon. I have several rugs waiting to be finished and hope to have them completed in the near future.

Hope this weekend is filled with things that bring joy to your heart!
