It's been a while

since I posted. I'm well - just haven't felt like posting. I have some new stamps and plan to ink them up and colour them tonight. Hopefully I will have a card or 2 to share soon. I need to get busy and make some more Christmas cards to mail out as well. Hopefully I'll have some time for that tomorrow night and on the weekend. I am looking forward to my vacation later this month. I will be off work starting Dec. 23rd and don't have to go back until Jan4th. Yee Haw! Hubby and I plan to spend a night away after Christmas as he will be off work as well.

Hubby was diagnosed with a twisted bowel recently and will have to under go a bowel resection surgery next month. The Dr. told him he would be in hospital for 4 - 5 days; but if I know my husband; he will be begging the Dr. to let him come home sooner. He hates hospitals! I plan to take a few days of vacation to stay home with him in case he needs me. The Dr. told him he would be off work for 4 - 5 weeks after the surgery. I'm sure he will be OK and I have complete faith in the Dr. who will be performing the surgery.

We finally got some heavy wet snow yesterday. We also got some rain mixed in which made for a slow sloppy drive in to work. I can't believe that Texas and Virginia got snow before we did here in the Great White North! That has got to be a first! Our street has been plowed and salted so no more snow on the streets. There isn't a lot of snow anywhere else anymore either. It is freezing cold today - needed to wear my boots, gloves, scarf and pull my hood of my winter coat up over my head to keep warm today.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Oma,
I really hope your hubby feels better soon - he must be in a bit of pain. Visiting hospitals is no fun either so look after yourself as well.
Look forward to seeing your creations soon.
Hugs,
