Making the Switch from Shepherdess to Formal Attire

This month, I don't have any earth-shattering news like last month's Fly On The Wall post where I shared how my memoir, Battered Hope, and my radio show Never Ever Give Up Hope were 'discovered' by Washington D C where I will be attending a gala affair in October to be recognized and awarded.

As a result, I have had several more requests for speaking engagements and am booked solid until February.  My head is spinning with excitement and I keep pinching myself to be sure this isn't a dream.


My gown for the Gala Affair





I ordered my gown on-line which was risky, but I couldn't find any formal attire in our small town.  It fits beautifully and hubby is making me a sapphire necklace and earrings to go with it.








This week, I am at my daughter's farm doing the house/dog/cat/sheep/goat sitting stint while she is traveling.  It is a wonderful time for me to play catch-up with my writing and on-line activity. Have you ever had a week to work without interruption?  To eat when you are hungry and stay up all night writing?  I rarely leave the property although a bit of cabin fever is threatening me.  Maybe I will venture out into the real world today.

I am amazed how well-behaved and calm the newest addition is considering he is a four-month-old puppy who was found wandering on the highway.   His name is Rocky and he is enjoying his new family of five step-siblings.

There's a good chance Charlie's pregnant -- she escaped the property and ran away with the Golden Retriever who was standing at the gate beckoning her a couple weeks ago. Bernese often have very large litters -- six dogs plus a litter equals a LOT of dogs.  Want one?

Best rescue dog, Charlie with grandson



Charlie was almost uncontrollable when Rochelle rescued this large mountain dog who, for the first year of her life, lived in a cage that was too small for her body. Charlie is now loveable, obedient and the happiest dog in the world!





This is a Fly On the Wall monthly post where a group of bloggers share what went on in their homes behind closed doors.

Have fun reading the other contributors monthly stories. It's one of the 'funnest' blogging challenges anywhere!
