This is a sad post today. The last over the week end I have lost three dear women. So it's a good thing when I had the chance last week to make cards that I focused on sympathy. Isn't it funny how things work out. The first one was Dorthy an elderly lady. I have not seen her since my childhood, but my mom has kept in contact with her. She was the owner of one of the housed we rented when I was a child. I remember going with my mom to their house to pay the rent. It was usually a lengthy visit. In the summer was great because they lived on the river, so I was able to go swimming. Next was Tanya. A dear sweet lady that I had the pleasure to work with at Metro. Her time there was cut short because of a stroke. It was always nice to visit with her and catch up when she came in shopping. And the last was a family member, a cousin. Lorna has battled with lymphatic cancer, melanoma and rheumatoid arthritis for the past 8 yrs. What a courageous women she has been. They will all be fondly missed. But we still have all the great memories to remember them by.
On another sad note. On Tuesday when the newsletter from the local craft store arrived in my in-box. I was shocked to find out the they were closing. This so sad for a small town. It is run by a mother daughter team. With the mother deciding it's time to finally retire, the daughter has decided to move onto something different. Not wanting to stay and run the store on her own.
That's it for me today. One more day of work, then I get to rest for a couple. Maybe I can manage a couple more cards.

Well, I'm still waiting for construction to start. The snow is all gone finally, and we are able to set the saw up outside. Now it's just finding the time to get it done. In the meantime I have carried supplies up to the dining room table. On the weekend Sam and I had a mother daughter shopping trip for mothers day. A whole day of just her and me going the stores we wanted, and not having the hurry. What a great day we had. I picked up a couple colors of panpastels, and have been itching to try them out. So that is the plan for today.
Later this afternoon it's off to the greenhouse for our flowers. What a great day despite the grey outside.
