Lovely As An AUTUMN Tree

The weather has certainly cooled down here in Wisconsin the past few days.  There was much scrambling in the mornings before school for a sweatshirt or light jacket after Riley Kate went out and came back in shivering.

  I am finding it hard to get out from under the blankets in the morning. I stick a toe out from under to test the temperature of the house.  Then I quickly pull my toe right back under where it is warm. 

I don't know if your house it like ours, but turning the heat back on in the fall is VERY hard. It's expensive and we can always put on more clothes, right?   I, even w/ much padding, am always cold when the house falls to the 66 degree mark. It is hard to stamp w/ cold hands. BUT don't get me wrong, I will still continue to try.  LOL

Yesterday, to warm up the house I baked.  The house smelled so good. We had some goodies ready when Dani got home last night.  She made the trip halfway across Wisconsin by herself for the first time yesterday. I was a nervous wreck!  She misses home, but likes college. She's losing weight. She insists that college food is not like Mom's.  I wonder how hard it will be to get her back out the door tomorrow.

I had a couple minutes to stamp.  Literally, this card is a "couple minutes card".
