A happy Noodle dog at the beach

I have been considering whether to keep blogging or not, for awhile now (my thoughts and opinions just seem very repetitive to me ... yeah, yeah, her best friend dog Jake has died, she just can't believe he's gone, she keeps expecting to turn a corner in her house and there he'll be, she's sure she hears him, she cries all the time, she has trouble sleeping, she worries a lot about money and she lives in a messy cluttery house ... ya da ya da ya da). I guess if you're bored you can magically click away.

I have decided that I will continue to post at least one photo everyday. I do love the visual documentation of my life. Lately I need to keep seeing images of my boy, front & centre. I miss him so much. Knowing myself well, I'm sure that I will continue to write each day as well, I'll think of something to say ...I always do.

My Dr's appointment isn't until April 8th, Wow that's a whole month away.

I've misplaced (can't find) my camera's battery recharger. Sigh. No new photos until I find it.

Thank you all for your kind and supportive comments ... it's helps so much really, especially helps to make me feel like this is OK, that it's to be expected ... that it's normal.

A Noodle on the rocks

I am grateful for the love & comfort of my wiry scraggly black girl Miss Winnie Dixon who gets me out in the fresh air for an adventure at least once a day and who sleeps so close to me at night that I can feel her breath on my face.

I am grateful that today is another new day, another fresh start and a new beginning.


  1. I pop in on occasion to see your beautiful pictures! I hope you keep blogging, but you do what you need to do! Maybe hang a sign on the blog for a bit, "Gone Fishing" and take a vacation. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  2. I enjoy reading your blog and your pictures are always beautiful. I think sometimes just writing out your thoughts is helpful even if they seem to be repetitive. After all, we wouldn't continue to read your blog if we didn't enjoy it. Of course, you should also enjoy it. I have been where you are and I know how hard it is. I think you are going to be just fine.

  3. I enjoy reading your thoughts and seeing your photos every day, but you need to take care of yourself Susan. It's rough that your Dr.s appointment is a month away, maybe there's someone else you can talk to in the meantime? I'll echo Mary and say I think you will be fine, it just takes a while.

  4. Hey there chililady, that dog would be handsome. Honestly I don't think he's ever been cute or at least not when I knew him but I do hear what you're trying to say. He is and always will be. "hey handsome". I said that to him ALL the time.

    And hey J. & Mary D. it's 6:00pm my time and you know I think you're both right. I think I am going to be fine. Today felt pretty fine actually. Busy and lots of walking in sunshine with Miss Dixon whose just renewed her muskrat hunting license. Sigh.

    thanks & hugs ! S.

  5. i want to call some sort of hot toddie beverage 'a noodle on the rocks' it is the best imagery ever... thanks for today!
