 Hi guys..
     Sorry for taking most of the weekend off.  I had all the intentions of getting to every one's blogs and seeing what you all have been up to.  Well,  We spent most of our Saturday walking around.  We headed out at about 8:30am and didn't get home until after 2pm... We had a great time walking all around and checking out all of the shops here in our little town.  It really was fun and by the time we got home we were all just starved.  lol...It truly was a wonderfully sunny fall day and we all had a great time walking everywhere.
     Today Jerry and I pulled down our storm window and cleaned it and the inside windows so that we are ready for the winter.  I have to admit that window is HEAVY!!!  We got it about 7/8 of the way up when my arms just would not let me lift anymore.  Poor Madison went running to the neighbor's house for help.  I could hear her knock (ok pound!) on that door and yell that her parents needed Help!  Thankfully the  neighbor did come over and help Jerry push it up the rest of the way so that we could lock it into place.  Yay, I am glad that is done!  heehee  I am always happy when we work together and get a major project taken care of. 
     Ok enough about my very full weekend.  Can you believe that we are already to our 2nd Monday Funday over on the  Farm Fresh Challenge Blog?  It is Sharette's time to post and she has a fun challenge for you all.  You just need to use Black, White and One Other Color on your card or project. 
     I finally got the chance to purchase 'Roll Call'  from The Greeting Farm and the first little sweetheart I had to color up was of course Jade.  She reminds both Jerry and I of Abby on the show NCIS.  I was going for a more Halloween Costume look for her, so mine didn't turn out to look too much like her, but I will keep trying.  lol...
     Don't forget to head over to the FF Challenge Blog and add your card for your chance to win.
     Well it's time for me to hit the hay;  Got to head back to work in just a very few short hours.  I hope you all have a fantastic Monday.  Talk at you later. 
Hugs, Lisa G
