Quite a Week

It's early Monday morning and I'm looking back at last week now that it's past. WHEW! All I know is that it flew by...We started the 40% off everything in the shop so needless to say it was very busy. The shop is getting very sparse...also on Wednesday my Zack had to have knee surgery...he blew out his knee so just like a human they fixed it. Andy's been playing nurse for him...medicine, ice packs, heating pads and thankfully he's doing very well. Next Monday the stitiches come out and then he just has to heal. He looks pitiful...all shaved in 3 places...his hind quarter, a spot above his tail where they gave him an epidural so they didn't have to use so much anisthesia, and a place on his front leg where they had the IV in. He is being a very good patient and his brother Howie is also being very good. He sits right next to him making sure he's OK.

I got the nicest surprise in the mail on Wednesday afternoon...Wendy, over at Snippets of a Quilter, saw my Paducah Nine Patches and send me these to add to my quilt. I was so thrilled. This is going to be the BEST quilt! There is not a group of people out in the world better than quilters.
 
Saturday one of my customers/friends came in the shop with this wonderful sticker for me...it says it all
 
My life is good...good health, good friends, a wonderful husband, a new chapter of my life...it couldn't be any better!

Off to get ready for the last 3 days at the shop...Have a wonderful day everyone!

I'm glad your Zack is doing well - poor baby!
I love the blocks Wendy sent, too - they're gorgeous! Quilters certainly are the best people, aren't they?
I love the "Life is Good" product line - it makes you think happy thoughts, doesn't it? You will definitely enjoy the next chapter in your life!

Oh, I hurt for Zack but I'm glad he's doing better and that his brother is helping to care for him, too. :-)

It's almost over - soon, very soon!

Oh poor Zack! I feel so bad for him! And look at those Paducah 9 patches! I'm drooling! Especially over the purple and gold one! Baby!

Poor Zach. You didn't tell me your dog was going thru that. On top of everything else your doing right now. It looks awful. Hope he's ok. Hang in there only 3 more days left till freedom. And believe me it will feel like freedom too.

Are you getting misty eyed yet about closing the shop? I know you are looking forward, but I'm sure you'll miss the shop a bit. Glad Zack is progressing well.

Life definitely IS good, isn't it?! So glad that Zack got his surgery out of the way and is on the mend.
