Shiner was our first English Setter who taught me the value of "stopping to smell the roses" ... or in her case swimming after a duck, chasing a worn-out frisbee, or hunting down the RIGHT stick thrown in the woods.
We should all enjoy life as much as Shiner did ... so I choose to look through Shiner's View ...

And then there was good ...
It has been a long month and I am thrilled to have seen good ... as well as ugly.
It's time to share the good ... from the alarm installation technician who agreed to commute out to the cabin for no extra charge to install the alarm system there, to one of my amazing blog readers who was willing to send me an extra camera to help get me posting again, to the fabulous support and comments I've received from so many blog readers, to my wonderful husband who has had to deal with all of this over the past month and still organized a surprise for me this evening ... a new camera was waiting for me when I came home tonight!
And more good news ... John will be a grandfather for the 2nd time in October! His youngest son and daughter-in-law are expecting a little girl in late October! I am playing with the Rain or Shine pattern from Elizabeth Hartman's "Practical Guide to Patchwork" as a baby gift for her.
I am using Moda's Central Park by Kate Spain with a couple of additional fabrics and solids. Quite happy with how it's coming out so far ... particularly my ability to match up all those points!
Oh yeah ... I ran a 10K with my husband on Saturday of this week. He won his division ... I was a little slower than I had hoped, but still came in 12th out 27 of women in my age division ... so I'll take it and progress continues for my goal to run the 1/2 marathon in November.
So I am back ... and I am looking forward to sharing and reading more over the coming weeks! I am indeed a luck lady ...
All the best,
