Never to late to say "thank you"...

  After having a snow day just four days ago, it is warm, sunny, and 60 degrees today!  This wonderful weather really energizes me.

  2013 started off with lots of road blocks.  Our beloved furry girl had cancer and we had to put her to sleep, my husband hurt both of his feet, and the basement flooded.  We still miss our sweet kitty, Skeeziks, every day but the initial grief is behind us.  Doug still can not be on his feet for long, but he is able to help out around the house a little now.  And the basement issues are resolved except for my craft stuff LOL.  Before I tackle that large task, I need to catch up on other important stuff.

  This wonderful weather makes me feel like the Energizer bunny.  Today I cleaned out the laundry/mud room, re-organized the hats, gloves, and scarves in the coat closet, and loaded the car with items to donate.  And I started writing out my *gasp* Christmas thank you notes.  There is one special friend (hi, Sally!) who gave me a 6x6 American Crafts "Hollyday" paper pad for Christmas, so this afternoon I had to play with these fun papers to make her Christmas thank you note.  I added a Paper Smooches "Word Up" sentiment.  Now I am off to finish the rest of my Christmas thank you notes :)

  Next agenda item:  catching up on blog surfing!  I have missed visiting my bloggy friends, but I want to let you know how much I have appreciated every single comment you have left me.

Make it a great (and productive) week!

Love your card. Great sketch to make many quick "thank you's".

Wow, what a way to start a new year. Well, maybe you got all the tough stuff out of the way, so it will be smooth sailing through the rest of the year. So sorry about your cat. Never easy to lose a beloved pet.
Hope you all stay well. Happy decluttering or spring cleaning. Have a great day.
