For the Guys

Hello again!  It is Tuesday April 7, 2020 as I write this.  It's time to get ready for bed, but I wanted to put together a post to share for tomorrow.  😀  I just took a walk to get some fresh air, because it is supposed to rain overnight and for at least part of the day on Wednesday.  It was SO QUIET outside as I walked.  So quiet.  It's peaceful, and weird. 

So today I'm sharing some cards that have a masculine touch.  Always one of my tougher categories to create.  In fact, when my husband's birthday or our anniversary rolls around, I get so nervous, and procrastinate making his card because I think it won't look 'good enough'.  He tells me he always likes my cards, but you know how we are each our own worst critic.

After work this evening (as I write this on Tuesday), I polished more silver.  LOL  Why not, right?  I have a collection of baby cups, and they needed to be shined up.  One cup is my husband's, two belong to my daughters, and the rest I've just collected from antique and vintage shops.  It's not a big collection, but to me they are sweet little treasures.  One has the name 'Warren' on it.  Another more ornate one has the initials 'E.M.' engraved on the side.  I'll have to take a picture of them in the daylight to show you.

God bless you all, and I pray you remain healthy and safe.

For someone who doesn't think she does masculine cards well, I have to say you nailed all of these, Colleen! So much so I can't pick a favorite, as they're all great (although, maybe #2?).

Ha! I've been cleaning, too! I've made a list of projects and am working my way through it. One of which is polish silver cups (yes, I've put that off, too)! It's a good feeling to cross off a task.

Take care and all the best to you! I hope the leak damage is fixed or well on the way to being so!

I love the nautical theme! Your walk sounds wonderful. It's pretty much the same here in our neighborhood. We take the dogs for a walk after dinner and unless it's a beautiful evening there aren't many (if any) people out. Chilly and windy is too often the case.
