Sick. Ick.

1104 Debra Burgin Cupcake miniIt was a busy, busy weekend — and most of it I spent dabbing my runny nose and eyes.  I got this lovely head cold from my DIL.  Happily, the baby didn’t get it as bad as the adults.

Friday and Saturday we attended a memorial service and funeral for a dear friend of ours, the minister who married us 24½ years ago.  When he died suddenly in mid-December, I was heartbroken.  He was someone who knew me and understood me, but loved me anyway!

But since it’s been a few months, the weekend was mostly free of weeping.  It was a joy to see DH’s children and others re-connect with the family.  The reunions were so animated and spirited, the minister had to ask them to let her get on with the service!

By yesterday I was really under the weather, so after some obligations at church, breakfast out with friends, and a walk through the downtown shops, we had a quiet afternoon.  Several cups of tea and a brief nap helped me a bit, and I was able to stamp and work on some home decorating projects.

I was so happy with the way this little gift enclosure turned out.  It’s simple:  the scalloped square is the card front.  Adhered to the back is a slightly smaller folded piece of card stock.  I like this so much we’ll be making a full-size version at stamp camp this month.
