Life is good. Stan is doing well and I've recovered from the 100+ days.
I have been having so much fun with my Cricut learning how to use dies and embossing folders. I still need a few embossing folders but am pretty well set with dies unless something new catches my eye. I stocked up on papers when Hobby Lobby had them 50% off a few weeks ago. I did a tussie mussie and gift tag for a birthday present and Stan even commented on how nice it looked. I even cut balloons out of one of the craft papers I had used and put them on the card envelopes. I learned how to do rosettes and put one on the front of the tussie mussie. My $15 craft table is perfect for doing paper crafts.
Stan has been doing a lot of work in the yard, within his doctor's and Jan's imposed limitations, that is. He is allowed to lift 20 lbs. now. He seems to be feeling a lot better. There is a new asthma medication that I want him to check into. With the heart issues being addressed, maybe it's time to work on the lungs. He is holding at 165, so all is good.
We haven't seen mama cat and the two surviving kittens for a week or so. I think she has taken them out into the world to teach them to fend for themselves. There are several people who keep cat food out, so they should do well.
We have some excursions planned, but I won't post anything until afterwards. It's not a good idea to announce to the world when and where you are if away from home. We do let neighbors know and they watch our house. This is a pretty friendly neighborhood. We really enjoy where we are.
I think it's important for one to enjoy their place in the world. If you live a good life and don't reach out to others with hate (you know who you are), God will take care of the rest. Your heart makes you a good person, not how often you attend church.
