I’d like you to meet Chloe. Chloe accompanied me on my trip to San Diego last year and she has decided to come along for the visit this year. Knowing how much I would miss our dogs, my husband gave her to me last year right before I left MHC for a 6 month stay in San Diego. I miss them so much it hurts. I have a need to cuddle a furry creature and Miss Chloe fits the bill.
Thank you, my dear friends, for all the wonderful comments you left on my previous post. You inspire me and you lovingly push me to take a risk and go for it. How can I not? I have read your comments several times. Like Jodie, I believe that ‘we are the authors of the life we create.’ It is easy to forget that at times. Thankfully, I have all my wonderful friends to remind me. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – blogging has introduced me to so many generous, compassionate, caring, talented people.
For those of you who wrote to say that the reason you are drawn to this blog is because it is authentic and real: thank you. When I was working with Amber on the blog redesign a couple of months ago, I emphasized that I didn’t want it to look ‘too slick.’ That was the only way I could think of to express my sincere desire to keep MHC what it has always been: about our cottage, our life, our dogs, my creative endeavors, decorating and gardening. So the fact that you think this blog I write is authentic makes me very happy.
Well, it is Sunday night and I have finished a long, long week of work. The first few weeks of Rep rehearsals are always exhausting. 3 Rep shows are in rehearsal and I am also coaching a 4th production that is moving onstage this week. There are not enough hours in the day. Eventually, I will have more free time…but for now…this girl is tired. I have one day off on Monday and I have several errands to run. On Monday evening many of us will meet to honor the life of my friend Raul who died a few weeks ago. He was a Stage Manager at the theater for many years and a very good friend to both me and my husband.
Have a wonderful Monday.
