A Wordy Waggy Now : #ROW80 R2/ #12WeekYear EOW9

Hi there, ROWers and friends! 

This week was sponsored by the letters W and C…

My main focuses this week were tending to tail-wagging canines and wrapping up a writing contest entry. I think the picture at the end of this post sums it all up nicely….

Is there a letter (or two) that represents your week?

Share it in the comments!
