WOW - we need to crop more often!

I had a great time this weekend. Believe me, it was some relaxing, stress free time I know I sorely needed. Great to see everyone who was there. We had great food as always! Sorry, some of you could not make it this weekend, but I have a feeling you all still had a good time too!

For those of you who were there, first thank you for eating my food and not spitting it out while choking uncontrollably. As you all are well aware, the kitchen and I have sort of a love-hate relationship, so me making even the littlest thing to eat is a major undertaking! Since you all survived, I am taking the leftovers to my unsuspecting coworkers tomorrow. There is far more left than I can eat. Although I will say I had it as a topping for a baked potato for lunch and is was pretty darn good.

Second, for those of you who were there, you might remember the ornaments above. I listed five sets of this earlier today and they have already sold out. I only had two more sets of four and one set of three, so I have them listed now. If they keep selling like this, I may have to make a trip back up the interstate and get some more of that paper! That just made me happy, so I had to share. I am going to try to get the rest of what I made listed today and . . . . . well, I am thinking I may just push aside all the stuff and create a bigger mess making more new things!

I hope we all have a good start to March! March is good - beginning of spring, March madness, flowers, the smell of freshly cut grass - gotta' love the weather that is coming!!!

Happy Sunday!

Today has been a nice day

FINALLY! We got to enjoy warmer weather after somewhat overwhelmed by wintry muck, cold, and snow. I think the weather really got to me for the first time. Seriously.

My year has been off to a crazy start. About mid-January Dad was hospitalized and, to turn a long story into a short one, he had an aortic stent put in due to an anuerysm near his kidney/liver. There were several tests, several scares until the final diagnosis, and then there has been the recovery period. He is doing fine now which is a blessing.

Grandaddy is doing well also. During the same time Dad's health was all up in the hair, the assisted living home where Grandaddy resides was placed on quarantine due to the flu. I am sure he loved being restricted to his room. He did not have the flu, but to be safe, when they are quarantined, they have everyone just remain in their respective rooms to keep any germs from spreading.

Work is still work. Not a lot I can say since I can't be all that positive about it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my job. My issues are not there at all, but rather with how some of the management issues are handled. I will just keep plugging away.

I am desperately trying to get organized and it should not be this hard! I am working on my scrapbook room today and realized it had been almost TWO months since I blogged. GASP! So, I thought I had better check in with the few who still may be reading and give you a very quick snapshot of what has been going on. I will try to do better in the future!
