100 week more!

Thank you to everyone who left their condolences in the comments or sent me an email. I really appreciate all your well wishes.

There is just over a week left for the 100 Hats project. I am almost there! I think I have about 80 hats, a few scarves and one pair of fingerless gloves. If you have a hat please drop it off at Annie & Company Knitting or email me at to make other arrangements. I know we can do it together!

To a Good Friend

On June 26, 2004 I meet a friend who (once I coxed him out from under the kitchen table) would become my best friend. His name was Murray.

Murray was a sweet boy who liked to hunt…from the safety of the window.

He was a curious boy

Liked to show off a little

Showing you everything

Was a GREAT cuddler

But mostly…just liked to hang out with his mom


Murray stopped eating last week. I took him to the vet and found out he had kidney failure. The vet said it just happens sometimes. Murray wasn’t in pain, but was very uncomfortable and cranky (not like my sweet boy). Although it was difficult, it wasn’t a choice. I knew I had to do the right thing by Murray.

Murray, I will miss you more than you will ever know. When I brought you into my home, I thought we be friends. I had no idea how much I would come to love you. Rest in Peace, my bubby.
