Saturday morning started off good. I got a slow start and then headed to Amanda's. She made breakfast and then we headed out for some shopping.
Hobby Lobby, Dollar Tree, Christmas Tree Shops, At Home were the store we hit. Then it was time to head home. I drove through the old neighborhood I grew up in and past the house my dad built. I wanted to stop but drove by. Conversation lead me to turn around and go back to pull in the driveway. I rang the bell and told the man who I was. He invited us in for a look.
Then we were on the road again headed home. My phone rang and Amanda read the number which I said I didn't know. Then her phone rang and it was her dad. He wanted to talk to me. My son collapsed in his kitchen and he was taken to the hospital with a suspected stroke. He's 35. Will be 36 in June. Amanda and I turned around and headed to the hospital.
We did go in and see him for a bit. He's talking. He said his left arm and left leg felt heavy and he couldn't lift them like he could the right side. They ran tests, did MRI and Sunday morning his wife texted to say a stroke was confirmed and there is also damage to c5 and c6 discs in his back.
Right now that is all I know. I'll give updates when I know more.

The temperature was near 70 here on Wednesday. Friday it was 27 and snowing when I left work. This definitely sums it up.
I wanted to clarify something regarding my post yesterday. I wasn't bothered by the fact that Grace sent the comment correcting me about manicotti. I was actually glad she did because it gave me a subject for the post., Not to mention that I love Grace to death. Some of you may have agreed with Grace and some of you obviously didn't. Either way, it's all good. We don't all have to agree.
Today I'm heading out to Amanda's for breakfast and then we're off to Hobby Lobby. There will be other stops too.
I had another sit down with new boss yesterday. I laid it on the line and flat out told him I'm no longer doing any of this extra stuff. My job title is bakery manager and I'm going to do bakery. No more of this opening the store, covering the office and having all the crap that no one else wants to do dumped on me. I said that I would finish the posted schedules but after that he'll need to schedule someone else to open on Sunday and Wednesday. Those are the two days a week that I've done double duty. We are also planning on having a staff meeting next Friday. We'll see how that goes.
And that my dear blog friends is all I've got for now.

I guess I'm kind of stuck on making Valentine cards at the moment. I made a simple 4.25" x 5.5" card using plain white cardstock. I added a craft paper with red hearts. Then I found a design I liked on Cricut's design space and I made it a print and cut. I put half of the design on the front of the card.

So today I have the card that I redid. As I said yesterday, this time I skipped the embossing. I found a snoopy image on Clipart-library.com and used that for this card. I uploaded the image to Cricut design space and then did a print and cut. I did the same with the hello Valentine. Like I also said yesterday, I had some operator errors when doing the print and cut. I neglected to attach some items so they didn't cut in the correct spot on my cardstock. That meant that I had something cut through the hello Valentine. I didn't want to throw it away so I glued all the pieces together onto the card. You can tell if you look real close but it looks good enough.

I had a nice day off yesterday. Aside from doing laundry, I spent most of the day playing. I would say that I had more failures than successes but I had fun and that's what counts.
I had seen a technique that I wanted to try. You use plastic wrap and you can fuse either napkins or tissue paper to regular cardstock and envelopes. I did the envelope first and it turned out pretty well. The card was good but I used a check tissue paper and it was crooked. Then I thought I would try and emboss to give it some texture. It ended up warping the paper.

Came home from work yesterday and must have been in need of a long winter's nap. I sat down on the couch and in no time I was sleeping. The worst though was the night before I was sitting up on the edge of the seat (not leaning back against the back of the couch) and fell asleep while I was sitting there. Luckily I didn't fall over.
I read that we're supposed to get some bitter cold wind chills through today. I'm hoping that they are wrong. It also said that there would be snow to go along with it. I need to make a dog food run and I know I won't want to go out if it's snowing.
Keeping it short today because there just isn't much to talk about.
