Spring Fever and Cards for Heros
Cards for Heroes - Results:
I spent yesterday afternoon cranking out cards for the Cards For Heroes Party over at 2Peas.. I only managed to get 6 made (some girls made 30, 40 and 50!)... I worked for about 4 hours, which for me included getting a leg of lamb roast in the oven for dinner, some mommy duties, and a couple laundry trips.
Now is the time to make Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day cards, that get sent to the troops in Iraq by April 11th, so they in turn can sent them out to their family members.. I'm sharing with you my favorites from my little sweatshop. I will use some of these as my templates for my own cards, in May & June.
Well today started at 17 degrees.. Yesterday never got above 20 degrees and it was a snowy, blustery stay inside day... hence, the cards!
I took a sneak peak at the 10 day forecast.... Guess What!!! Thursday and Friday are gonna hit the 50's! I am so darn excited...
I gotta plan my 'big outdoor adventures'.. Things like, oh, clean up all the doggy surprises in the yard, clean out the kitchen coup, clean out the dog kennels, and perhaps a dump run.. Yep.. That's me.. Mrs. Excitment.. And today is order chicks day.. New babies to become our next batch of egg layers.
... I'm also getting Walking Fever.. I can't wait to start my morning 'walks/trot/gasp for air' outings again! Gosh.. and to think I used to be a runner! And a biker! And a swimmer! Oh the days of my youth.. how I miss ya, how I miss ya!
Fa la la la la
The sun is on it's way ..
