Yes, I've been missing for almost a month. Things are happening around here one after another. First my puppies some how got fleas. Now I've had dogs all my life and never had these critters so I'm not really sure how or where they picked them up. They are always on a leash and never leave the yard. Just mystified?
The ranch we have boarding our horses has gone through 3 mangers in the last 5 months and the horses have been suffering so I have been spending a lot of time out there and looking for another place for them.
Now something even worse has happened Our horse Spirit pictured above has developed a disease that effects the central nervous system called EPM. The treatment for this will take up most if not all my free time. I have to travel 45 minutes twice daily to get the ranch and that same time back. While I'm there I need to walk Spirit for about an hour a day after feeding his medicine.
So my crafting time will be limited. The picture I posted is one from an oil painting I had done for my husband last Christmas. Since transferring my computer it seems I've lost some pictures so this is the best one I have right now.
Please keep Spirit in your prayers, we saved him from going to a meat market about 5 years ago. They say the disease is treatable if caught in time. I'm waiting for test results on how far it has gone.
