Hope to put a smile on their face.
We are at the cottage right now enjoying the beautiful weather. Heather also came up with us.
I am sitting here in the motel's breakfast room using the internet, enjoying the fresh scent off the lake and listening and watching the humming birds compete for the nectar in the feeder.
I live a life that I could never have dreamed of. I am such a lucky, lucky lady.
Now last weekend my FIL and his wife had a bad weekend.
They had a pet that turned on them and it broke their hearts.
So I made them a card and put it on their kitchen counter here at their cottage, so as soon as the come into the camp they will see it.
I hope it sets the mood for a better weekend for them.
I coloured this cutie up with my Copics. Yes I bring them to the cottage every weekend.
I also bring a few other bags of creative goodness. Hubby calls me a bag lady, but I am pretty sure he is used to it by now, lol
I didn't realize there was a speck above her eye. I hope it is just something on the card and not a marker....but if it is, I guess she has a birthmark, lol.
I wrote a nice little message in here for them.
I used some left over papers and a sticker I had planned on using in my cottage journal.
But it went well with the message I was sending to them.
Yesterday, Heather and I went to see ParaNorman. Oh this was such a fun movie.
Heather and I love to watch these cartoon movies. They are such works of art really, the animation and such is outstanding.
I have to tell you, there were more adults in the theater then children. There were a couple little girls sitting a few rows behind us, and to hear them laugh, just made my heart sing.
Onto My Day:
I have an early 8:45am doctor appointment with my gastroenterologist and he was happy to report that my innards are doing well ;)
He is planning on retiring, which makes me sad as he has been my specialist since I was 19 or so.
But he said he loves what he does and isn't sure what he will do if/when he retires.
So I was wondering, if you loved what you did for a living would you consider retiring?
Not to many people (besides my hubby) loves what they do every day.
Most retire so they can do the things that they love. But what if you love what you do, would you retire?
But then again you have the freedom to do more of what you love, and more time to spend with family. And the freedom to sleep in every single day.....yup that would be the kicker for me, lol.
I hope you all have a creative Thursday :)
