Lately I have been preoccupied with my dear husband's passing. The pain doesn't go away. It may hide and trick you into thinking it is not so sharp but it's still there.

I think of him and talk to him a hundred times a day. He's always with me and some days it hurts more than others. Grief doesn't go away. Whomever said it goes away, lied. The pain is there, sharper some days, but always there.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss him, that it doesn't hurt! I have a hole in my heart and a hole in my life that nothing can ever fill.

I will always love you and I miss you sweetheart!

Just popping in to do a little catch-up.

I was away on course Tuesday thru Thursday this past week and came home after work on Friday exhausted. The course was good but was a serious case of information overload. So much to absorb. However I have a manual to refer to and a CD as well as a list of contacts so it's all good.

I had Monday off last week, so before heading off to my course on Tuesday, I planted all my flowers and put in my container garden. I decided to try to grow some lettuce and tomatoes in containers - never done that before so we'll see how sucessful I am. It may not go well but I won't know until I give it a try. I checked on the tomatoes yesterday and I swear they've grown 2 inches since I planted them. Amazing!

Last Monday, I made a quick trip to the GP. Bealzabub the boil came back and brought along a couple of his friends. Unwelcome visitors, all 3 of them! Thankfully no lancing required ! Doc tells me I'm very susceptible to staph infection and put me on antibiotics for 10 days and then, after the 10 days, on a prescription for 3 months. Hopefully this will eradicate the cooties, otherwise I guess I'll be on the meds for longer than 3 months. I think I'm having this problem because of all the other meds I take, which can compromise your immune system. Doc says not so I guess it may be a coincidence. I'm just keeping the fingers and the toes crossed that the drugs send them packing!

Well must run. I'm finishing up an order for the store and I must deliver it today so busy, busy, busy. Once that's out of the way, then I want to work in my journals. They've fallen by the wayside and need to be updated.

Game 5 for the Canucks series starts at 5pm tonight. GO CANUCKS!

Keeping my fingers crossed and sending good thoughts and confident vibes their way. I think Vancouver is a far better team than Chicago. Unfortunately they have not been able to capitalize on their superior skills. If it weren't for bad luck they wouldn't have any luck at all! Is the Chicago goalie good? Absolutely. But Vancouver is making him look a lot better than he is by shooting straight at him. Lou is far better but for some reason seems to be off his game a bit.

GO CANUCKS! One game at a time!

Here's another Mother's Day card. It could also be used for many occasions. I really like this stamp but haven't used it all that much because it's a little tricky. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

These are a couple of Mother's Day cards I made for the store. The one on the left is more generic and could be used for pretty much any occasion. All that would need to be changed would be the sentiment used.

I've been threatening to upload some new work for weeks now goes!
This is a card I made for a dear friend's 65th birthday. There's a gorgeous green glitter border along the bottom edge of the card and "congrats" is also glittered. Unfortunately, the glitter doesn't display all that well in the scan - it looks dull. Anyway, I hope she likes it!
