Where has the time gone? When my husband left for his ten day trip to Arizona, the days stretched in front of me, seemingly endless. And here it is, the day he is coming home. I made a list before he left of things to accomplish. I wanted each day to have a plan or commitment. It wasn't all chores; my list included a trip to Michael's and Hobby Lobby. I also planned to shop for some new spring clothes to wear for an upcoming trip. The dog needed to go to the groomer's and I needed a haircut. My closet was on the list for a reorganization and the freezer needed cleaning and organizing
Proud to say, missions accomplished. And add to the accomplishments, fixing the garage door opener when it refused to function (with telephone help from husband) and plunging a stopped up toilet (with no help from anyone).
I also had fun stamping and this is one of the cards I made. I spent part of each day stamping and without that refuge I could not have borne the loneliness and quiet of the past ten days.
This is a slapstick stamp from Penny Black entitled A Friend Is ... And anyone who is owned by a dog can understand this image. Cooper was a great companion for me while husband was gone. I had to get dressed each morning and take him for his walk, as well as at noon and evening. I met a few neighbors along the way and chatted endlessly with Cooper as we walked. It was a different story while we were at home, though. Cooper spent each day as you see him in the photo below:
I could have taken this same photo each day his buddy was gone. It mattered not that I walked him, fed him, played with him and snuggled and pet him; he missed his master! I've tried to tell him so often that today is the day!! I will be sure to snap a photo of the big reunion!!
So, there it is ... ten days have gone by; spring doesn't seem any closer. It was 34 degrees on our walk this morning with a brisk wind. The daffodils were shivering!!
Thanks for stopping by ... I love your visits. Hope your day includes time with friends and family; and some time for yourself!
