My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Fun Fashion, Plan B, & Special Songs

My friend and I went shopping to one of her favorite stores -- All Tucked in. I was there to cheer her on and tend her kids while she found something with her gift certificate. Well, these cute little shoes were 50% off so Lisa felt like they had my name on. I think I'm going to love them!
Special evening at the Salt Lake Temple with our friends.  Can you tell it was just a little chilly and that I'm hunched over saying hurry Steve take the picture :).  Yellow and grey are the colors again!  This skirt bunches up and is just a little short so I think it will go in the pile of -- just doesn't work!  I'm trying to simplify and have hanging in my closet clothes that I love.    
Today was one of those days where I really longed to get in a car and get my to do list done.  I recognized early in the day that I needed to accept that plan was not going to happen - funny , that hasn't been the case for almost 20 years, now but sometimes sure do miss this part.  So, I got busy cleaning, organizing, decluttering some areas and getting some work done.  Cricket and I danced to our song  over and over.  I know a little sappy but she loved it and so did I. Listen to the words. It just fits.  One of my favorite lines - 'old webster could never define what's being said between your heart and mind' :) This will always be a special song for us.  As we were walking down after sharing at the Holiday Luncheon this was playing with amazing clips of guide dog teams.  Chills :).   Yes, Pantera and I also had a special   song too .

Have a great weekend!
