11 month

Yep, I made it through 11 months without you, my love.

Remember - one of the plans we had is riding the Front Runner to Ogden and back? I did it yesterday. Tony was with me. You would have enjoyed it. It sure doesn't feel like the train is going 80 - 90 mph. Except for the fact that we were passing the cars on the freeway. In Ogden we had a cup of coffee and a donut and went back to Salt Lake City. The only thing better would have been if you could have enjoyed it with me.

I haven't started fertilizing the ground yet - it was totally crazy weather. I will do that next week - after Mothers Day. That's also the time when I will hang the Topsy Turfy Tomato Plant. I haven't found the right Rosebush yet, but I will start hounding the nurseries as of Monday.

The shower for Torrie went very well. Very nice turnout and the baby (Nyann) is an absolute doll. I took pictures, but they are still in the camera. Your printer/scanner/copier died and I had to get a new one. It's delivered but not installed yet.

I put my Etsy store on Vacation - Mode until the end of this month. I have too much to do to keep it stocked. I got another order for 200 1 1/2 inch white circles and 200 2 1/2 inch aran fleck circles. I am alternating them with the remaining leg warmers. And then there is an order for gnome hats in the waiting. I sent a sample and waiting for the decision. Kathy told me, she can keep me as busy as I want to be. She is one heck of a nice lady. Since I had problems with the black leg warmers, she told me to forget about them. Not a problem.

Today is JOY. Decorate a hat. I bought a straw hat at the DI and made braids hanging all around the brim of the hat. Looks funny.

For my birthday on Monday, Janean took me to Olive Garden for soup, salad and bread sticks. Afterwards we sat on the patio here at home. It was a very nice day.

I am thanking the Lord every day for the fact that you are now pain free and oxygen free. I am happy that you are with him in heaven. But it saddens me that you are not here with me anymore - at least not in body. In spirit you most certainly are. It helps me that I am able to talk to you every night telling you about my day and I KNOW you can hear me and guide me.

I love and miss you sweetheart. Next month your body will be put in its final resting place.
