Happy Valentine's Day / Cactus Monday

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Cactus Monday!
Tomorrow is the school project and I am ready. 
I have designed 8 mandalas and made coloring pages of them. Tomorrow I will see which design is most popular.Will show you pictures and results later.
I haven't been blogging a lot because of all the preparations. After tomorrow I hope to have more time again. But life seems to be busy no matter what ;)
I have to make 3 mandalas for 3 new citizens of the world. Next week I will have an exam for work and will start flying again. Well what's new..... 
But I am happy to feel healthy and that I  have picked up all my activities again. 

Hope  you enjoyed this special day. I did. I got cards from my dear friends. 
My son Lars invited his girlfriend for a home cooked meal so my DH , Felix and I were forced to eat out :)
I feel blessed and I hope you feel the same way.
 I know these special days aren't the same for everyone but I hope that in some way you all feel loved and blessed. 
If you read this know that you are special to me ♥. 

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Cactus Monday!

  5. I found a crochet pattern for a heart shaped cactus and I almost made it for Valentine's Day and then I ran out of time. I didn't even know there was a Cactus Monday - is that your meme or is there really such a day? I love Cacti and succulents.

    DH brought home goodies his students gave him and I am sure we will eat it all and then be very very sorry we did. LOL
