As you can see, the new barn kitties are adjusting well to their new responsibilities. HA. Actually, they do spend most nights in the barn, nestled in their warm alpaca bed on the top shelf of my fiber storage racks. They love it out there. But, they also love me. I like to let them in the house for a couple of hours each night for comic relief. Leroy hates them, and Fred is either intriqued or frightened by them. Bottom line is, shuffling four cats around is chaotic.
Much progress is being made here, with the sale of several more alpacas, and so many friends coming to help me. Sunday a friend organized a work party, and we got the barn all cleaned out and organized for the memorial service. Then on Wednesday, I went to Cash and Carry to buy all of the dishes, bowls, cups, soup spoon, napkins, etc. for the memorial service. Yesterday a friend took me out to lunch and to my favorite thrift shop. I'm sure you are getting the picture my days are not empty and lonely.
Above is the post card we sent out to friends, family, and associates for Alan's Memorial. I have a committee of friends and family members who are planning this for me. The love and caring brought to me by the community has been overwhelming, and I have no desire to live anywhere else. I wish you could all join us in this celebration of his life.
To all of you who have sent cards and heartfelt wishes my way, I thank you. This is going to be a long haul, and I treasure my friendships, both locally and in bloggerville. I can feel your arms wrapped around me, and God answers prayers. I know.
