*Wonderful Mother*

Happy Saturday everyone.... and a Happy May Long Weekend to my fellow Canadians.  Not sure what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but here in the Prairies, the weather was wonderful all week and now it's cool, cloudy and wet.  Here at Mom's they forecast is for a months worth of rain in a mere few days!  Yippee?  I guess the rain is needed, but not on the first official long weekend of "summer".

I am in awe at how fast this year has gone by so far....  I can't believe it's the end of May....  a week and a bit and it's June, and then we're looking at final exams, report cards and then Summer Vacation!

I am still in Regina... coming up on the 2 week mark tomorrow.  Bruce and the boyz arrived safe and sound from Calgary yesterday to spend the long weekend here.  My sister will be flying back tomorrow morning and if all goes according to plan, I will be driving back to Calgary with my family on Monday.

Mom has been doing really well after her stay in the hospital last week.  They sprung her just before lunch on Tuesday, changed a bunch of her meds and I think that things have been going well.  I'm glad she's not hurting or feeling sick.

The card I am sharing today I created for my husband to give to his Mom for Mother's Day.  I created it for the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenges a few weeks ago.

Hi Nancy! When can we come and visit? Yup...I'm just a messenger (a deaf one I must say!) The girls said your card is beautiful and a very cute puppy.
