Happy Belated Valentine's Day

What a week it was digging out of snow after snow. I've had about enough of it, how about you?

And here we are getting more snow as I type. Ugh, ugh, and ugh~~ I hope you all had a Wonderful Valentine's Day spending it with someone you love, and doing something special. Even if that was something as simple as sitting in front of the tv with takeout.

I haven't been feeling all that well, not quite sure what it is. More of a cough than anything else. A tight cough. A little bit of a runny nose a few days ago, but that didn't last long. Not sleeping very well either. The coughing always seems to act up in the evening. So tonight I'm armed with some Delsym. I swear by it for a dry cough. I picked it up on my way home from work today.

But there was a brighter side to all of of this. Over the weekend, I took the day on Saturday to just hook and hook. I can't show it unfortunately. Another challenge on AAPG. It's coming along nicely, and when it's all said and done and everyone is finished, I will post it. Sunday, I left the hooking alone since it was Valentine's Day. I had church in the morning, then time to help my mil. Afterwards George and I went to do something we haven't done in a few years. We went target shooting. What a fun time we had. I wasn't sure how I would do when I first picked up the gun since it's been a while, eye sight is different, etc. Didn't do so hot the first round, but then I got in my groove. We spent about an hour or so and went through quite a bit of ammo. Lot's of fun, and we plan on doing it again in the near future. We had thought the place closed down, but just found out that it had just changed hands. After we were finished there, we went to grab a bite to eat for an early dinner. And then we went to see a movie. We saw From Paris with Love. We totally enjoyed it. Suspense and foul language, but boy did we laugh. It was quite the busy day! I can't remember the last time we spent so many hours together at one time LOL. I had told George leading up to Valentine's Day that I did NOT want a box of candy this year. If he insisted on getting me something, then just let it be a candy bar. Well, he did buy me a candy bar, 2 to be exact lol. And yes one is gone already. Working on the second one tomorrow :). Today at work I was gifted with a box of chocolate covered strawberries from Rick and Dean. That was certainly very sweet of them! Thank you again :).

Another sweet surprise came in the mail on Saturday. I had won something from a blog giveaway over on Lauren's blog. I have to make fun of myself here though. I need to stop speedreading/per a friend of mine :). I thought the giveaway was for the pattern. I know she had just given away a hooked piece and didn't even think she would give away another finished piece. I even emailed her saying how I couldn't wait to do the punching. Well, wasn't I fooled lol??? It WAS for the finished punchneedle piece. It's just beautiful and it has found a home here. Thank you so very much Lauren. It's punched and finished so wonderfully, nice job!. I'm glad it's mine and I will treasure it !! I love how she did not use a traditional red for the heart. I apologize for not letting you know it arrived sooner. With not feeling so good, and hooking all day Saturday, I just stayed in my comfy chair and didn't move. Well, now I'm just wondering how much snow we are going to get. Are the schools going to be delayed tomorrow? Cancelled? Geez, daughter has had off long enough! There goes her Spring break. I'm sure they will not have one now. May this please, PLEASE be the last snow of the season?? One can only hope!

On a sad note, Valentino passed today. Oh, how he hung on. I'm just so happy he isn't suffering any more. Nicole will bury him once this snow is all gone. For now he's in a nice cold place....

I hope during the rest of your week you will find the sun shining! And may your hands be busy, busy, busy.....

Kathy, So sorry to hear Valentino passed, my deepest sympathy to you and Nicole. Don't worry about the snow, once global warming kicks in this July it will all be melted. Just relax and roll with the snow.

Sorry about Valentino - I know you and Nicole will miss him. Oh how can you not like this lovely white snow! It's wonderful - more more more - And if you believe that I'll put something on my head.

Sounds like a wonderful date for Valentine's Day!!! Closest to shooting I've gotten to was a BB gun! LOL! Congrats again on winning that beautiful pn! Keep looking at that until the snow melts! ;-) We got another dusting of the white stuff today... cold and wet outside... hope to be hooking and stitching today to keep my mind looking to Spring and warm sunshine! Sorry to hear about Valentino...hugs to you and Nicole!

Kathy ~ Hope you're feeling better and have gotten lots of hooking done.
Poor Valentino! I suppose hamsters have a Rainbow Bridge of their own!
It sounds like you and hubby had a wonderful Valentine's Day. How sweet.
Pug hugs :)

Oh. Glad the punch needle arrived and you like it (of course you wouldn't say you thought it was ugly...lol!).

Lauren, your punching is beautiful! I love looking at it and how you finished it. Love your label too :)
