A Little Pick-Me-Up

I sure needed this little pick-me-up today! On one of the Yahoo groups that I belong to, we have Secret Sister Swaps, she sends me the cutest things. As you all know, I was feeling a little sad today because of Jim, this is what I got in the mail!!! A beautiful piece of fabric and the folder I will have to explain about it...It is the cutest thing! There is tons of quilty infomation, quotes, prayers, listing of quilt books, quilting formulas, and a whole lot more! The crayons are for the blank quilts that are in the folder to do color placement! Thank you so much for the nice gifts!
Update on Ole Jim! Jim is doing a little better but still is not out of the woods yet. The vet actually called me this morning on his way in to the office to check on him, he was actually surprised that he made it through the night. I have been giving him his shots and breathing treatments, his cough is still bad, and he is not eating well at all, but he is up and walking around. He did eat some Fruit Loops earlier!!! :) I do love him, but I do not want him to suffer. He is very old and his health is going down hill, just don't know if he has the energy to pull through it in the end. I want to thank you all for all of the nice comments and emails about Ole Jim, it means a lot to me.

It is now 8pm and we are getting ready to take Hunter to the 4-H Forest Of Fear! They have a little haunted forest setup down by the lake. Andrew is not here this weekend he is up in WV at a Beagle Trial, he loves his dogs! But that is fine, he is a good boy and calls me every hour or so.
