Hi friends! How are you? It has been a while. I have been busy nursing our dear old Murphy. He has torn his ACL. The vet has told us it has torn from old age. He IS 15 years old! His parts are wearing out.😢 The vet assures us that with rest and very limited movement for two months, he should recover without surgery. We are hoping his left knee holds out! The vet said he can feel a little laxity there. And with him depending on it so much, and being so old, it is going to get a real work out.😟
We watched the Christmas parade Sunday evening from upstairs here in the apartment, since we live here on Main Street. I held the poodles up to the window.They like watching the action. I had a few people wave to us.😁
I never did show you the finished ornament I made from the stitching of Jacob. I showed it on Instagram a week ago, but not here.
I am still stitching on Madeleine's ornament while she is in school. When she is home I stitch on the December wreath for my cubby shelf. The last one of the year!
I worked on this little piece while Madeleine is around and I cannot work on her Christmas ornament.😉
HERE It is from Heartstring Samplery.
Some say the great mystery of how one can live in two worlds at once died with Thomas Hunter many years ago. Still others that the gateway to that greater reality was and is only the stuff of dreams. They are all wrong.
Rachelle Matthews, who grew up in the small town of Eden, Utah, discovered just how wrong when she dreamed and awoke in another world. There she learned that she was the 49th Mystic, the prophesied one, tasked with finding five ancient seals before powerful enemies destroy her. If Rachelle succeeds in her quest, peace will reign. If she fails, the world will forever be locked in darkness.
In The 49th Mystic, Rachelle found the first three of those five seals through great peril and mind-altering adventure. But two seals remain hidden and the fate of both worlds hangs in their balance.
As Rachelle Matthews sits deep in a dungeon, Vlad Smith is just getting started. Thomas Hunter's world is about to be turned inside out. The mystics say that there is no defense against the Fifth Seal--but finding it will cost Rachelle everything.
So begins the final volume of high stakes in one girl's quest to find an ancient path that will save humanity. The clock is ticking; the end rushes forward.
