Today is Sunday, February 5. Super Bowl Sunday. Woohoo! Although I'm not really a Giants or a Patriots fan. However, Ken's boss is a huge Patriots fan so I decided to make them "my" team for the game. Plus, my DBF (dear blog friend) lives up in the Boston area, so it just seems right. :)
The other day when we were coming back from a walk, we saw there was a little something on our front porch.
Isn't that a really pretty hydrangea? It was left on our doorstep by two former preschool moms (one of them also worked at the school for a few years). Anyway, it's been years since they were at our school. Their girls are probably in high school by now. It's really sweet that they went out of their way to bring something by the house. (Thanks, Kelly and Kelly! The plant is really lovely!)
I thought that I could give you an update on the hair situation. The good news? My hair is starting to grow back. The bad news? It mainly seems to be growing back in the center of head... back to front. Crazy. And you think it sounds weird? You should see it.
Is that not just about the ugliest hair style you've ever seen? haha! Actually, as I look at the photo, I can see that the sides may be getting a little fuzzy. I can't tell if that huge and deep scar on the right is growing hair or if hair is just covering it. Not that it matters. But I am hopeful that maybe in a few weeks I'll have hair down the sides. I'll keep you posted. :)
More words from the Psalms today.
"The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace."
You know, I've been in a pretty dire situation for over 6 months now. But, for the most part, this has been a time of peace for me. So, I can testify that the Lord does bless His people with peace. And that He does give them strength. Praise the Lord!
Yesterday was stamp club and the theme was a gift item. This is my least favorite of all the themes we have done. It seems as though everyone else in the club is really good at this and makes really great and complicated projects. And then there's simple ol' me. Making bookmarks. Not much of a gift item, but it will have to do.
I used one of the Stampin' Up tags dies to make the bookmarks. They're a little shorter than a standard bookmark, but I think they'll work. I mean, when I was reading a lot I would just grab whatever was nearby to use as a bookmark — a little scrap of paper, a Kleenex, a post-it note... whatever. They all seemed to work OK, so I'm pretty confident these short bookmarks will work, too. (I sure hope so since I gave away quite a few of this size to people who were bringing us food back in the fall!)
As is usual for me to do for stamp club projects, I stamped and signed the back of each bookmark. I think it's a nice touch. Just wish I remembered to do it all the time for every project. (And I think I've written that before... you'd think I'd remember to do it!)
AND TELL: stamps are from Stampin' Up (Hello Doily, Delicate Doilies); cardstock is Papertrey Ink (Stamper's Select White); ink is Stampin' Up (More Mustard, Elegant Eggplant, Bravo Burgandy, Night of Navy); buttons are PTI (Royal Velvet); ribbon is PTI (1/4" silk); also used Copics (Y38 Honey) and a Stampin' Up die (Two Tags).
Oh. I thought I should mention one more thing. I really appreciate all the emails to check and see if everything is OK with me. It is good to be loved! But, I feel kind of bad that people are spending time worrying about me and checking on me. So, how about if I don't post you can assume that everything is good. If something is not right and I don't post, you'll hear from Ken or Britt. Will that work? But, I do really appreciate all your prayers for health and healing... so you can keep those up. :)
That's all for Super Bowl night. :) Hope you enjoy the game (if you're a Super Bowl watcher) and that your team does well (just not well enough to beat the Patriots this time... haha!). I'll try to catch up with you before Wednesday (my next infusion day). Love to you!
