Deadlines

So sorry I have been absent awhile longer than usual. The deadline bugs have been swarming about my head, buzzing and nagging.
I sat down for a few moments to write to you on Thursday morning, and just then, the power went out. We're all a little gun-shy about power outages at the moment. So I went into survival mode, checking puppies, and getting busy with other chores. The power was restored less than an hour later, but by then, all thoughts of blogging were in the past.
In a few days, I will have met all of my deadlines and life will resume at a more natural gait... I hope...
But first... 27 classmates and half a dozen teachers need Valentines tomorrow... there is an exciting project to finish up and send off, a secret that will be let out of the bag at a later date... there are two new releases coming out at the TNNA Nashville show at the end of the month, and one more to be revealed any day now right here on my blog... anyone want to come be my assistant?
Meet Lucie, proud Mama of the quickly growing pups. This is what she does the second you stop rubbing her behind her ears. I think maybe I need to learn to be as demanding as she is. I could use some shoulder rubs myself.

My busy, wonderful girl! I'm so proud of you!! I admire all you do, and adore you and your little people! I was glad we got to see you yesterday, if ever so briefly, and on a sad occasion. Hopefully next time will be longer and happier.
Love from your Mama

I'm sure you'll be happy when those deadlines are over and done..... and met!!
Your little cutie pies always bring a smile to the face... they are very sweet.
Puppies and Lucie are sweet, as well.... Lucie knows that a good shoulder rub is good for the soul.... my shih-tzu does it, too. She lets us know.... so there's never a doubt as to when we should stop!
Have a lovely week!!
