I want to thank each and every one of you who wrote to comfort us in our grief over Maggie. Thank you! I cannot tell you how much that has helped. Most of the messages reduced us to tears - of sorrow - but also gratitude. For your kindness, and for Maggie's company. As one neighbour wrote us, she was a brave girl.
I won't say more about how we're feeling about Maggie. I think you know. But I want to make sure you know how deeply grateful Michael and I both are for your words, your thoughts, your support and comfort.
Great syrup waeather today. Tony's going to boil down his sap tomorrow afternoon. Our friends at the guest cottage, Linda, Bal and their daughter Bethany will be invited to watch - and maybe help. Then they're coming over tomorrow night for a simple dinner. Barbeque steaks. Tony set up the BBQ for us today. What a help he is.
Wrote this morning, and spent some time this afternoon on the permissions again! Who'd have thought it would be more challenging that writing the actual book. Certainly more stressful.
spent 20 min. on the torture device. Gary dropped by yesterday and suggested using the ipod while exercising...great idea. Did that and it helps...but am torn about what music to listen to. Like eating favorite food when ill...then never being able to eat it again!
Am off...bath time.
Thank you, again.
