Good morning! The snow/rain mix that they talked about turned out to be more real snow out here.
I am glad I got home earlier than planned last night. It is still snowing lightly this morning, but planning to "warm up" during the day.
Yesterday I got my hands done by Sarahenna. Sarah does beautiful work.
I needed a quarter-end celebration art + something pretty on these darker weather days. Thankfully I wasn't able to meet her until Thursday because on of my unexpected odd jobs this week involved caring for chickens which is sort of dirty work. I got to hold one which is surprisingly fulfilling.
We got a small walk in before the rain just started dumping. Then Nim sat in the car bored and hardly dented energy-wise while I had my henna appointment. Too bad I can't henna him.
There have been some great stories in the news this week to counter the not-so-great ones.
The Puppy Rescue Mission is the natural answer in my opinion to the relationships that form under the stress of war in places where animals are not given much consideration at all - unfortunately including by some of our soldiers?! This organization helps with the connections and support necessary to get the integrated companions out of the war zone.
Oregon Human Society Diamond Collar Award is a program for recognizing heros in the life of animals. Please enjoy the video of Koshka and Staff Sergeant Jesse Knott. While it looks like Koshka's trip to the US was privately and family funded, this is very much a similar story of mutual need and companionship, like the ones on The Puppy Rescue Mission site.
(Anyone else finding that Blogger is fickle this morning? Did they do a template change or something?)
Have a great Friday!
