Searching for some joy

And I don't have to look too far...
...another little one to adore.
I'm so lucky.

Thank you, stranger

Earlier in this week in which nothing could dry my tears, I managed to learn some new crochet skills and use some lovely Fibrewebs yarn to produce the Urban Shells Scarf.

I do think it’s pretty and it’s soft and light and very wearable.

But (click away now if you have no interest in emotional tales) this week has been too too sad for me to delight in such things.  After days of anguish on my part, and pain on his, just yesterday I had to say goodbye to My Best Boy, Ralph. For twelve years he has shared my life, and I cannot believe the loss I feel. Pet owners, I’m sure, will understand. Others, maybe not. It’s strange how empty the house feels.
However, I want to say a very sincere thank you to that person who, all those years ago, took their puppy to the RSPCA because he ‘barked a lot’, and so gave us the opportunity have this sturdy little companion as part of our family. Thank you, stranger.
