To Good Luck !!!

Good Monday morning everyone. 
     Oy, what a weekend!  lol...  I really can't complain as I did have it off and we all did sleep in until 7am on Saturday.  Yes, we watched a couple movies with our jammies on and drank some hot cocoa and coffee while snuggled on the couch with our warm blankets like it truly was a fall morning.  lol... The mornings are really feeling like fall and all day Saturday it did as well.  I am sad to say however that Jerry and I finally made the decision to winterize the pool.  It is a relief to have it done, but there is also a part of me that hates to do it as well.  I love summer and swimming with the M&Ms everyday, but we really haven't even touched a toe in the pool for over two weeks, so it was time.  We are suppose to have a couple days this week that will get back into the 90's, but I truly doubt that it would be enough to get the pool water back over the 70 degrees that it was at when we dropped the water and put the winter blanket on it.   lol...  Now that it is all done, I am truly enjoying the fall weather that we are getting in the mornings.  It was so enjoyable to sit and watch the football game yesterday morning.  It always reminds me of when Jerry and I were first married without any kids and we would get up early and spend the whole day watching games. 
     We did go for a great walk on Saturday evening, but Mitchell really isn't feeling that great still and now Madison is busy keeping me up the last two nights as she can't breath and it is her duty to let me know this.  :O)   To say the least it really wasn't a long walk.  I am just happen to have gotten it in.  As I mentioned before Jerry and I aren't feeling that great, so we really didn't do too much this weekend. 
     Well that just about covers my whole weekend.  We are off and running on yet another week and I really wanted to make a very special person a 'just because'  card,  so I decided that the new Soho Anya with her very laid back/adorable outfit would be just the go to girl I needed.   I also had bought this adorable postcard die-cut that I just had to have, but really had no use for what's so ever.  Light bulb moment!  I could use it as a kind of  'toast' to wish good luck to this person.  I am being very vague as I know she reads my blog and I don't want to let the card out of the envelope until she gets it.  lol...
     We are rather cool here this morning, so I am enjoying my cup of Joe and getting the M&M's and running for another fun filled week.  Wait, that includes me as well.  lol... Aren't I a hoot when I have my coffee?  hehee   I hope you all have a great day and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs,  Lisa G
