Well... that was not so much of a happy title as it is sarcastic. I like Fall and Spring weather, but I don't like it when it is so freezing cold! and I am a baby compared to some of you because it is 35 degrees here and I am walking around like I am an ice cube. The main thing I hate is how the heat running all night makes us all unable to breathe the next day... or at least for a few hours ;).
The kids are up. One got up around 8 saying he has the flu but will still do school... ate breakfast and then decided that his flu was so bad he could not do school either. He is now in bed unable to get up or play or watch tv. He is being made to rest and lay there and will get hot broth for lunch. He thinks I am kidding, but if he continues to lay there that is exactly what will happen! ;) My daughter crawled out of bed at 9 walking around like the living dead but says she is ready for school, lol. She went straight to the table with her pjs on, hair all a mess and one eye halfway open saying "It's 9. Time for school." in a voice that was somewhat sarcastic and weird because she knows I let her eat breakfast and get dressed first. These kids. I KNEW they would pull stuff on the first day of school. The other days they were getting up at 7 raring to go, happy and playing. Silly kids!!! OK, so I admit. I have been rushing so much I am not ready for it to start either. Deep Breath. It felt good to let that out :D lol!!!
On to my card. I was inspired by the Papercraft Star challenge: Winter theme. I used my new Fresh Brewed Designs image Front Door with Wreath for this card. I kept the shades cool blues and blue greys to make it feel more wintery. I thought of making the door red, but am glad I kept it sortof muted. The l topiaries and wreath are covered in snow and the family inside is warm by the fire reading stories together :D.
Our new challenge at Freshly Brewed challenges is to use something new. I purchased this nestie die just a few weeks ago, so it is still new to me. The ribbon, flower and button were gifted to me and I have been hoarding them, and the image is a new digi I created just a few days ago.
I am off to brew another pot of coffee and take over the world... or my home at least.
School, laundry, cooking, fighting with the kids.
Yep - I am ready for it. I hope! HAHAHA!!!
Have a blessed and happy day!
