MEET THE PRINCE!

We are thrilled to introduce you to our new family member, Prince Freckles. Prince was born on June 12th, and joined our home 24 hours ago. Having a puppy is like falling in love with a special someone. Everything makes you smile, fills your heart with joy, and you cannot quite understand how you’ve lived your life without that being as part of it. We are absolutely smitten by this bundle of energy. His heart-shaped nose, his delicate black spots very similar to those of our dear BogeyQT. In less than 24 hours he learned to go down the two steps from kitchen to TV room, which scared him beyond belief at first. He almost did a full body flip the first time, and how we wish we had captured it on video! The images are already so many, as I type this post they fly through my mind and I cannot stop smiling. We needed him. And he is here. Welcome to the Bewitching Kitchen, Little Prince!

A MOST PAINFUL GOODBYE

There is no easy way to break the news. Our beloved Bogey left us, to cross the Rainbow Bridge and join the many beings that live in our memories. I cannot quite describe the pain, how broken we are inside, but at least he is not suffering anymore, and will stay with us forever. Wagging his tail. Being mischievous. Being Bogey. Bogey Quit That.

(note added after publication: I normally try to answer every single comment left on my blog. I just cannot bring myself to do it for this post. I love each comment left, but it’s just too hard to address them at the present time)

A STAR IS BORN!

Well, maybe not really a star, but a new blog site… As you may have noticed, I’ve been baking a lot of cookies lately, and the idea of concentrating them in a new blog has been in my mind for a while. The new site, launched a few minutes ago, is called “For the Love of Cookies.” It will be kept very short and sweet. No recipes, just sharing pictures of my cookie adventures. If this is something that interests you, please stop by and subscribe to my new virtual spot. I’d love to see you there!

TWO YEARS

It is hard to believe it’s been two years since Aritri left us. But it is even harder to believe and accept that someone so full of energy and joy had to face such cruel fate. She still had a lot to do, a lot to live, a lot to give and receive. The unfairness of it all. Hard to find words.
