Saturday Surprise - July 6, 2013

Hello to all!!
It was a good day: I am finally starting to feel better - we saw our favorite Nurse Practitioner in the whole world, Cindy McCarthy, who let me know that I was still sick - which I knew but it's somehow good to hear it be "official" (I had no hesitation to nap this afternoon!)... another course of antibiotics for me and 2 puffers to help me breathe easier (bronchitis) ... and I already feel a tiny bit better today so yayyyy!!!! Makes me very happy!

Also, got a call today from Tony (my niece and plus we're good friends) who said "well, today's the day" - her cat, Shpumkins was in labor so I went down to be with them...she had 6 beautiful kittens - it was so emotional and it was humbling to see those little kittens being born...I mean, that's life in it's essence right there.... I'm grateful that I was there.

Came home to see the boys playing in their little pool so I joined them, we all came in later and danced to some iTunes and munched out on some roasted edamame (a big hit with all of us), we watched How to Train A Dragon for awhile then bed for the boys.

Talked to my Dad earlier who said they are home and Mom is doing well - another big yayyy!!! They go back on Monday. Prayers and good energy sent for my Mom, Marilyn Nicholas, please.

I made a card today and I like how it turned out. I used the new brads that I mentioned yesterday. Kiew-nik (my Love) took a pic:

A Day of Appointments! July 5, 2013

Happy Friday to all! Sorry to say but I did not make any cards yesterday afterall - my day worked out differently than I thought it would but change is good. Kiew-nik came home early from work so my niece Tony and I went grocery shopping in Presque Isle, Maine. I thought it would be packed because it was July 4th but it was just the opposite - it was super quiet there! Everybody spending time with their families, I'm guessing. Tony is so amazing - she added up my groceries as we went along with her iPhone and it made all the difference in the world!! We ate a quick, small supper at Taco Bell and hit Walmart ... I always have fun with Tony.

I did get some cute brads (metal embellishments) so that was an unexpected treat PLUS the latest edition of Paper Crafting magazine (I'm picturing a cup of tea while browsing it) for some Momma time.

Well, I am off to get ready for the day - the boys and I have appointments galore today - it's good to take care of our health! Love and peace to all!!

Prayers and positive energy to my Mom and Dad - love them with my whole heart!!!!

A Sunny Thursday - July 4, 2013

Good Morning to All!
I spent the morning giving the boys breakfast, baths, etc. and I also did some organizing of my card making supplies. Going to do some nature inspired cards today - should be fun! I did make my Mom a card yesterday ... I took it to her last night (I hope she likes it!).  I saw my niece, Ryla, at my parents' house and also my sister, Darla. It was a late night for me - visited until past 11 p.m.  My Mom and Dad are travelling today so my Mom can look after her health condition - my prayers are with them!

Happy Wednesday! July 3, 2013

Hi, I have been tampering a bit with the look of my blog. Isaac, Ethan and I went grocery shopping this morning and enjoyed some outdoor time before lunch. No card making yet today although I think I will make one for my Mom this afternoon. When I think of my Mom, the colours/themes that come to mind are: floral, fresh green and elegant with a little sparkle thrown in to give it whimsy. It is very fitting that I just got a new floral lace paper punch from Martha Stewart, who makes excellent paper crafting products! Alright, first some Facebook, household and then the card...I'll post later or tomorrow. Enjoy your day everyone!! Plus, I'll get Kiew-nik to photograph my Mom's card so I can post it...
