First off, thank you so very much for all of your amazing comments on my last post about Boppa. What a comfort it has been to take a minute to read your kind words each day. It's been two weeks since he passed, seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago all at once. I'm doing okay, occupied with the heaps of busyness that come with tying up all of his loose ends before I head home. Not much time yet to be sad, which I've been told is a good thing. I'm not so sure.
When I've had a minute to think, I wonder at his timing, though I've yet to really find the strength to write down the thoughts that swirl around my mind surrounding those last days. I imagine some time on the trails with my sweet Ollie will help them surface. Very soon we will be together! With any luck I'll head home at the close of this week. Oh sweet home, you will feel like heaven.
My tender heart is so happy it's October. Time to tuck into a season full of so much joy and comfort. Time to slow down, take long walks, crunch some leaves, and spend time with friends. So good.
To kick off the season of time with friends, my good friend Molly and I have teamed up for October's desktop calendar collaboration. So fitting to have one last visit with her before I head home. Isn't Molly's photograph dreamy? Thanks M, you're the best!

Happy October, dear friends. S
