Hello and Ahoy!

Thank you so much for everyone that wrote to me about last month's Kindness Challenge. My inbox was filled with wonderful emails about how people are kind to each other everyday. Here is one of my favorites...

"A lady moved in a house across the "green" from me. She has two small dogs. I have one large dog. So I put a couple of human biscuits in a bag and 2 doggy biscuits in another bag wrapped them in a letter from my dog saying if they needed a list of the best walks we could show them. We now swap knitting patterns, recipes and homemade goodies. Show a little kindness and you get a big kindness back."

This made me so happy, I'm still smiling. The Small Dog approves as well, and not just because my friend talks about puppy biscuits.

Wishing you a pleasant summer and sending warm thoughts to all my friends in the southern hemisphere where it's winter. Hopefully this month's toy will make you feel sunny.
