It is already Monday. Can you believe it? I for one want to know where all the time has gone. Omword. lol.... I want to welcome some new followers to my blog. Hi Ambrella, Sharon, Sarah Moura and Ashlee. Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for becoming a follower and for the nice comments :O) As you all know I love reading everyone's comments and I so appreciate them all.
Now, I just have tell you a little something about our weekend before I get to today's card. As you all probably know by now we are trying to take walks at least five days a week. Well this weekend we went on a walk both Saturday and Sunday. Or I should say we tried to. heehee What that means is that each morning we get up early and feed both Lucy (inside of course, this is her house and she NEVER goes outside. lol...) and Sunday (on the front porch). They both get some loving from us all then we head out depending on who picks where we go that day. So, Saturday we decided so head up a totally different way and we had walked about two blocks when Madison hears a "meow" and turns to see that Sunday had followed us. We ended up having to go home again and try all over again only to have her follow us once more. We let her come, but as we wanted to go on a longer walk we sent her home only to have her head right back. Needless to say our Saturday walk was cut short by about a mile after all was said and done. When we started out yesterday she tried the same thing. We had gotten over 3 blocks away when sure enough there she is. Finally we ended up taking her back to the house and with a lot of complaining on my part, (Jerry didn't like my idea) all four of us had to pile in the car and drive over two blocks only to park the car and get out and start our walk. It was a wonderful walk however. We were able to walk to downtown and head all the way over to the M&M's Junior High and then head back. Jerry stopped and picked up the car while the kids and I headed back home to be greeted by Sunday sitting on the front porch all happy to see us again. I do have to admit that I am going to be sad with school starting as we will have to figure out how we are going to get our walks in without having to get up in the dark and walk at 4am.
If anyone has a suggestion on how you walk or exercise during the winter months with a busy schedule I would love to hear it. :O) It has made such a difference to all four of us just to get this exercise I just don't want to loose it for any of us.
Ok guys, if your still here I "thank you". I am sorry for going on. When I was junior in High School I had good friend that was a football player and he asked me one day why I always talked in paragraphs. lol.... Well I didn't quit know what his problem was, but as I am much older now I get it. I am even ok with it as I don't like to talk on the phone much, but YES... I will talk your ear off in person. Ok, ok back to my card. While I was working on some Birthday cards for friends and family I decided that I wanted to make Jerry a simple card and of course I had to use Samantha from Krafin Kimmie Stamps. She is just so cute and I look nothing like her, but to Jerry I do so I knew he would appreciate her. :O) Anyway as I was making my card I got to looking in my drawer for the perfect accents to put with her and I knew right about that I had to use these beautiful flowers that Sharon the 'Night Owl Scrapper' or as I first met her 'SMSCRAPPER' on YouTube had made and given to me this last Christmas. Yes, I have been hoarding them as they are so pretty. I just felt however that they went so well here because of the fancy feathers and golden beads along with the buttons. I just love them! Thanks again Sharon.
Alright guys, I will let you go. I hope you all have a wonderful Monday. Mine is going to be a busy one. I have two kids that need haircuts and clothes so after work we need to head out and take care of that so that when we head over for registration on Tuesday they can show off their slimmer bodies and new hair styles in their pictures that will be in this years yearbook. Wish me luck and a ton of patience for Jerry. lol...
