Can you believe that!!! It sure got here awfully fast and left just as quickly as it arrived. I had really good intentions of wishing everyone out in Blogville a Blessed Thanksgiving, but that never happened. I'm sure I'll get a chance to do that soon tho, especially since time seems to be flying by at the speed of lightening these days; and before we know it, it'll be rolling around again :)

Unfortunately, my honey came down with Shingles of all things last week; and it, coupled with his Spinal Stenosis, has made him somewhat miserable, so his Thanksgiving wasn't the greatest, that's for sure. I never realized what nasty stuff Shingles were; but OMG, they are dreadful. His are on his face around his eyes, forehead and scalp, which is extremely dangerous cuz they can cause permanet damage to both the eye and the ear. God willing the medicine will keep that from happening.

About the only new pictures I have to share are of Dolly D, who continues to delight :) The little rascal plays, plays and plays, then she naps on the first spot available (LOL).

Our Aunt Margaret came down from TN to spend Thangsgiving with us, and we enjoyed some quality time together in the sewing room this weekend. I'll be back in a few days to show you all what we made :)

I've tried to tell this little nut ball that her Mommy is a "Quilter;" but basically, she doesn't give a happy hoot cuz in her humble opinion, this entire world was placed here for her own personal pleasure!!!!! So far she's winning that little battle cuz she's just so darn cute!!!

And talk about full of mischief!!!!! OMG, "mischief" should have been her middle name; but to her credit, she also loves to snuggle and kiss, which is exactly what me and her Daddy need right now :)

Our Halloween decorations are still up here at the office, so Diane got her to do some posing :)

I'm sure I'll get back to quilting here in a bit; but for now, I'm just gonna take some time to enjoy this little blessing while my heart continues to heal from loosing our precious little Miss Molly.

Miss Molly Mae Mynatt
July 3, 1997 to November 10, 2009
The cutest, sweetest, kindest and most loving Puppy God ever created!

Our little angel went to Heaven to be with her Sissy (Micki) Tuesday morning and she took a big chunk of my heart with her when she left. Gene and I are heartbroken beyond words, but we will be forever grateful that God chose us for her! She was truly one of our greatest gifts in life. We will also be forever grateful for the 12 additional days we were given after receiving the devastating news that she was in kidney failure. That extra time was absolutely precious to Gene and I. I think it was to Miss Molly too :)

I soooooooo wish everyone in the World could have known her!!!! She came into our lives at 8-1/2 months old and brought us an abundance of joy and laughter from that point forward. It's hard to imagine life without her ... it truly is; and I will miss her always.

In hopes of healing my broken heart, my honey, that wonderful man I fell in love with 37 years ago, along with Diane, the wonderful friend who works for us, spent many days searching for Miss Molly's little Sister; and although I didn't think I was ready to give my love to another furbaby, "Dolly" arrived on our doorstep Tuesday afternoon ... Gene says she is my gift from Miss Molly!

She's a little Yorkie just like Miss Molly and her name is "Dolly Darlene." She's 14 weeks old and checked out perfectly at the Vet this morning, with the exception of ear mites, which they say is common and very easy to get rid of.

When we first brought Molly home, Micki chose 3 names for her ... "Daisy, Dolly and Molly." We immediately said "Good Golly Miss Molly," and the rest was history, sooooooooo, we chose to name this little punkin one of the 3 names that Micki originally chose; and our friend, Tori, called last night and thought we needed to add the Darlene, which was Micki's middle name, so that's what we did!

I didn't think my broken heart was ready to love this little one; but Gene was right, as she's already made me laugh and brought oodles of sunshine our way, so I'm sending a great big thank you to Miss Molly for this wonderful little gift :)

"I also thought, "As for men, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. Man's fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is meaningless. All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return." (Ecclesiastes 3:18-20)

We received a picture from Halloween from our Niece, Tina, and our Great Niece, Gracie, that was just too daggone cute not to share! I think you will agree :)

OMG, Is that not the cutest "Mary Poppins and Burt" that you ever did see!!!!!! Absolutely adorable and Miss Gracie won first prize at their Church's "Trunk or Treat," which didn't surprise me in the least :)

Now on our little punkin, Miss Molly ... I have been spending an awful lot of time down on my knees during the last week sending up oodles of thanks for the fact that she is responding so well to the fluids! It's a down right miracle that she is doing so well! Just six short days ago her Vet didn't think she would make it; but by the Grace of God, the improvement is nothing short of "answered prayers!"

This picture is from the other night when I had her on the kitchen counter trying my best to find something that interested her food wise, which happened to be cheese! Talk about spoiled rotten (LOL) ... literally to the core; but she is sooooooooooooo worth it!

They say the fluids make her very cold, which is why she's sporting her T-shirt. Today we tried to give the fluids to her ourselves so we wouldn't have to go to the Vet every day; but it just plain and simply did not work! The needle is for horses and the syringe is for elepants, so I loaded her up and took her back in. It has been such a roller coaster ride of emotions and I am ever so thankful that it all seems to be leveling off :)
