Good Mornin' Yall,

I hope everyone had a great Monday and ready to start another day. It is currently 39 degrees with a windchill of 32 degrees and the winds are out of the South at 10mph. We had a nice day yesterday, but once again a bit on the cool side. I think Spring has left us around here. LOL. Today is suppose to be in the 60's and also on the windy side.

Today is my Birthday. I am 46 years old today. Nothing special is planned since I was given my Birthday party this past Saturday. Yesterday afternoon, my MIL came be before the girls got in from School and brought me the prettiest pot of artificial flowers and a little bag of 2 large candy bars for my birthday. My Mother had already given my birthday present last week. I was wanting some new rugs for my bathrooms and she got me those. Then my DH took me out Friday night and I got my hair cut. The girls gave me a card with some money in it. My DH will be home later on tonight for at least a little bit of my birthday.

Not alot has been going on around here. The girls had softball practice yesterday. Our youngest daughter had her practice right after School and our oldest daughter had hers at 6:30p.m. It was getting cold, so they didn't practice as long as they normally do. Our girls have their Pre-Season Tournaments this weekend. There has been some changes in both of their tournaments. Our youngest daughter's tournament was going to be held in Marked Tree, but they got kicked out of the league because they were trying to have a stack team. They can't have those this year, so our youngest daughter's tournament is going to be held in Harrisburg and she has her first game Friday night at 6:00p.m. Harrisburg has a couple of teams and they will be playing the Harrisburg Black Team. That is just the colors of their shirts. I think the other team has orange shirts. Our oldest daughter was to have her first game this Thursday night, but Lake City has decided to have all the games on Saturday. We have the first game on Saturday morning at 9:00a.m. We will be playing EPC, which is my hometown's softball team. A few years after I had graduated, they were consolidated with another town and became East Poinsett County. So we have another busy weekend scheduled for us. Saturday night after our oldest daughter's tournament, her coach is having a bonfire out at his house and they will be having hot dogs and also making samore's.

My dear friend, Mary@ gave me this beautiful Anniversary card yesterday.

"THANK YOU" so very much Mary for this card. I will be adding it to my sidebar. I just love it so much. I also got a card from Mary yesterday in the mail for my Birthday. "THANK YOU" so much Mary for the beautiful Birthday card. If you have never been to visit Mary, please take some time and go visit her. She is such a wonderful person and has alot of uplifting post's she does. Also, Joyce@ gave me this card yesterday also.

"THANK YOU" so much Joyce. I really appreciate it very much. If you have never been to visit Joyce, please take some time to do so. She has alot of inspirational post's as well. Again, "THANK YOU" Mary and Joyce for these beautiful cards. I had also received a couple of cards in my email from a couple of friends as well. Loretta@ and Linda@ emailed me beautiful Anniversary Cards. "THANK YOU" Loretta and Linda for the beautiful cards you sent me.

I guess that's about it for today. I am having a hard time getting up in the mornings when my alarm goes off at 4:15a.m., so I have been resetting the alarm to go off at 6:00a.m. LOL. I'm still having trouble going to sleep early at night, so I guess that's why I'm having to do that. Also, I forgot to buy some coffee yesterday, so I can't have my coffee this morning. I am going to have to go buy some when I take the girls to School in a little while. Take care my friends and have a great day. May God Bless Each and Everyone of You.

:::singing::: "happy birthday to you....happy birthday to you....happy BIRTHday dear Karen...happy birthday to you!!!" [and many more!!!!]

I had big plans of making you something for today, but the time around our house just didn't show.

We had garage door problems today, and we had someone come help us get it fixed so we could get the car out of the garage! rofl And then, there was a lot of little things that needed to be done before the day was out yesterday, and I just didn't find time before the computer was shut down for the night.

So, picture this...a cute little victorian girl with big bows in her hair, and a wrapped gift for you ...

Sorry I didn't get it done. "The best laid plans of mice and men"

So, tho this is quite late in the day, I'm sending you the best wishes ever for a happy day to you.

[but before I go, I need to ask...what is meant by the term "stacked team" <---color me dumb!!

I have been watching tv and have got everything ready for work tomorrow and will just need a shower in a bit and I will be ready for bed. I slept a little better last night and I hope I do tonight because I have to work the rest of the week! But it will all be ok.... Well, I hope you had a good birthday and you have many, many more...

Have a very happy birthday Karen. You are still a young pup at 46, I am 6 years older than you.

Guess what our weather brought today....snow. Nice wet flakes, we need the moisture so I won't complain too much. However rain might be a bit nicer.

Have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
