We took our little guest to the local pet supermarket, and met a chihuahua type wearing a pink tutu! Our friend had a good look at the outfits they had on offer, but wasn't very impressed and preferred barking at the rabbits instead. She also possesses a scarf.

Ran into a friend I haven't seen in two years at the craft store. We ended up having lunch. While we were eating, a woman stopped by my table. It was a college friend I haven't seen in 15 years. What started as a day of boring errands turned out great!

Getting into two of the classes I need for next semester. (And the tea samples came in the post.)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Congratulations to you and her, Faith!

My best thing I hope will be tomorrow - when work (again, I *hope*) will begin to return to normal. The past several months have been a slow, then fast-ramping-up build to some events this past week, and I have been so overwhelmed even my bosses have seen it. And they're both multiple time zones away from me!

This time has been one of transition, and it's been challenging, but I am so grateful for my job, for my team, for my bosses, and for my employment. My life is much blessed.

I only wish I could share it with Mr. X. And that he were more blessed, near *or* far away.

My oldest son and his partner got married today! It was a small, informal wedding and just magic :)

Congratulations Annis - lovely photo!
