We’re moving to Colorado!


I haven’t posted here in a LONG time.  I have some updates now though.  Hubby and I are moving from Arizona to Colorado!  I am so excited to be moving closer to our son.  We have spent the past week planning our move and packing.  We found a cute little house to rent that has a nice fenced in yard for the dogs. They’ve never been in the cold before and haven’t seen snow so they are in for a bit of a surprise.  It’s still in the triple digits here.  In 10 days from now it will be 30-40 degrees colder.  Wait.  I might be in  for a bit of a surprise! Hubby has a second interview coming up for a teaching job and I was just contacted by a recruiter so the job hunt is going fairly well so far. The little house we found has some nice trees on the property, grassy yard in front and back, wood floors and has an open concept.  It is a 1940’s brick house with a …

My Baby Buster


Tribute to my Baby Buster.  This Xmas will be 2 years since he passed away.  I miss him more than I can say.  I cried when he died and I cry still.  He left us too soon.  I know I’ll see him in heaven for there is no place called Paradise without my loving little boy Buster.   Here he is on Papa’s lap. “Sir” is what he called him.  Because he was a little gentleman.  T took care of him for two years, never complaining once about giving him his pills twice a day, paying for expensive medicine, taking him to the vet, holding him until the seizures stopped, cleaning up after him so lovingly as any Papa would.  T had faith that Bussie would recover from Valley Fever- but life had other plans. Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.

eye poetry


Holy cow!  I had to share these gorgeous prints found on Etsy.  I actually found them through http://www.79ideas.org .  They are so lovely, soft and sweet.  Eye poetry is very fitting.   The lovely images are from here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/EyePoetryPhotography?ref=seller_info photographer: Irene Suchocki         She also sells iPhone cases that are beautiful too!  Check her out when you get a chance.  I tried to contact her to see if I could do a little interview but for some reason I wasn’t able to get through.  (So, Irene, if you are reading this somehow, I hope you will message me or email me at feefeehugs@gmail.com so I can do a little interview!)

Lambie


I have a special place in my heart for lambs as you can tell from my “Lambie My Love” pinboard found here: http://pinterest.com/feefeern/lambie-my-love/ My mom bought me a little lamb (stuffed animal) when I was a young child: Lambie (on right) with hubby’s childhood toy, Bellybutton We were shopping in a department story and I saw this little lamb as part of a display.  I carried it around the store and wanted to take it home but mom said no.  I set it down and cried.  It wasn’t a pouty, bratty cry but a truly sad, quiet goodbye kind of cry.  I walked to the van and sat in the backseat.  Mom turned on the car.  Then she turned it off.  She turned around and asked if I really wanted that lamb and I said “yes, I do.”  I already loved that lamb. Mom sent my brother Eddie back into the store to buy it for me.  I got quite a lot of hand-me-downs as I was the 7th of 8 children Mom and Dad had.  Getting this new …
