Butch Says Hi

Butch is complaining that he has not been on the beach as much as he would like and I am happy to report that he and I spent a wonderful morning on the beach!

I have been a busy woman lately. I am a Hospice Volunteer and here in our community we have a Rummage Market with donated items from members of our community. This year I was in charge of shoes and bags. We had an incredible sale this year. In 3 days we made over $45,000 dollars. :-) and some 50 volunteers. It was a lot of work but what a wonderful cause. This money will go for end of life care for members of our County. Now, one thing you have to understand is we live in a community of 2,500 people. I am just astonished that we were able to bring in this much money. Every year more and more people hear about our sale and plan their vacations around it! I have a month or so off before we start collecting items for our other sales.
This has been one of the best organizations I have ever been part of!

I would encourage anyone to see if there is anyway you can support your local Hospice Organization. I do not think I could ever be a care giver but I sure feel good about helping out in this way.

I hope all of you have a great week and Holiday weekend. Butch and I will be spending more time on the beach.

Oh, and I am quilting. I am trying to finish a couple of projects so I can enter them in our local quilt show mid-September...


  1. That is great news about the sale.

  2. Enjoy your time at the beach....and give Butch some hugs from me!


  3. Dogs and beaches... two of my favorite things!
    Congrats on all the money you were able to raise... truly wonderful!
