if you haven't noticed, it's July 2nd,
and in my last post I announced a giveaway which I was going to draw a winner for yesterday.
I've decided to give you all, and myself, some more time
because a lot has been happening at this end that has left me in less than a festive kind of mood.
our pup of 18 years, is in her days of decline.
She's got cancer and is having a great deal of difficulty with normal life functions.
She still has a good appetite, but I've been hand feeding her every bite.
Sometimes she walks, and unsteadily follows us around the kitchen;
most times she must be carried around and held while she drinks,
or goes to the bathroom - a rather frequent occurrence.
Her care has been my full time job.
Then this week she slowed way down.
I really thought her time to cross over was about to happen on friday.
The giveaway slipped my mind,
and the timing for it feels wrong,
so I think I'll do the drawing when it feels right.
I just don't know exactly when that will be!
I've been working on this mandala over the past week
while Zana sleeps.
It has brought me a great deal of peace
While working with so much color
I thought about our endless games of frisbee
and her whirling dervish greetings
when returning home after being away
for even an hour!
sweet dreams dear girl
