I was overwhelmed by all of your support and kindness this week as we went through this very difficult time. The house is a much quieter place without Barclay. Sam, our cocker spaniel is walking around looking lost. He can't figure out why his buddy isn't here. He also hasn't barked once...I'm thinking he was only a barker because Barclay got him going! We are settling into a slightly different routine and I am so glad I made the decision...he isn't suffering anymore.
This morning I got up early and made some blueberry muffins...comfort food therapy? I've frozen a dozen and we are eating the others. There is nothing like a muffin made from fresh, Jersey blueberries!
Thanks also to those who have mentioned your concern about the flooding here. We were spared any flooding (other than a lot of water in the yard!) but there are several areas around us which are very bad. Trenton, Phillipsburg and other areas north of us and areas of Philadelphia to the west are flooded. Hopefully, with the beautiful day we are having, the waters will be receding and the clean up can begin. We had a major flood in our town almost 3 years ago and the cleanup was a nightmare. I certainly feel for those people!
I've been thinking a lot about Judy L.'s post yesterday, the things we do out of habit. The blueberry muffins are a result of that...I was going to go pick up bagels and decided to make muffins instead! I had never thought about it but there are many things I don't do out of laziness...I used to do them and got out of the habit...things like cooking! Thanks, Judy, for a very thought provoking post.
My daughter is off having her first ever driving lesson...I'm saying prayers that it goes well. I'm more nervous than she is!
Again...thanks for your kindness...you are the best!
