A Salute...

A Kind Word... like a spring day. And today, the middle of February, I turned on the a/c in the house, cause it felt more like a summer day. So the kind word is...crap! It's too soon to turn on the a/c.  Jeff even told me so when he came home from work, after he said "Hi honey I'm home!"

Jeff: is the a/c on?

Me: yep

Jeff: It's only February

Me: but it's hot in the house

Jeff: open a window

Me: that does not work in the middle of the day

Jeff: you best be blogging that YOU turned the a/c on in the middle of February!

So there you have it folks, now he can't say I don't do what I am told.

When my new catalogs arrived (well first I went over to MAMMa's and took a gander at hers) and one of the stamp sets that as soon as I saw it, I was like "I am getting that!" was this cute set, it is so sweet, and this is gonna sound freaky weird, but I love the little feet on the girl, I mean they look real, they aren't sticks like in some sets, they are honest to goodness feet with little toes and everything. DSCN7131 copy So I got the set right away but did not get it inked up till the other day when I was working on some special stuff.  So while she was out, I thought I would whip up a card. My back is killing me today (I got under my desk to do some detective work on my noisey computer, I tried two different power cords and neither make the fan quieter - and I tweaked my back coming out from underneath - it didn't help that Toby was sitting on my lap under there...I swear you sit on the floor and the dog is like Lap! Lap! I call it!) so I am gonna post early and go to bed.  I gotta get up early and get my computer in the shop, club orders delivered, meet my girlfriend Rhonda who I have not seen in like forevah, and go see my girlie girl Shannon, then get my butt home to get my Prescott Pines stuff done.

Back to the card, see how Mustang Swingin' Sally is sitting on her rump like she should be? She is not trying to impress the other girls on the swings by sitting on her knees, so that when she gets swinging too high, she falls right off the swing into the mud puddle underneath, and has to wear huge clothes that make her look like a dork from the lost in found for the rest of the day cause her clothes are covered in siree, Sally is gonna swing a while then she will skip into the house and drink lemon-ade with her little sister (I'll do up a card another day using her sister from the set).

Well I hope you have enjoyed the card, I know I enjoyed coloring her, give me an aqua painter, and ink refills anyday, and I am a happy girl...add a little Lindt chocolate (that has been kept in the fridge) and I am an even happier...although wider in the buttocks girl...hey it keeps me from falling off the swing into the mud right?

Have a great Wednesday, American Idol will be back on...yeah!  We can forget the woes of the world for 2 hours.  Thanks so much for stopping in!
