House mouse, CPS, and cake!

Today has been rather productive, At least for being so sick! Ha ha ha I guess the antibiotics are kicking in and I'm good to go! I feel like.... well not a million, but maybe a couple hundred thousand bucks! Ha ha ha

My morning started at 5 am, mostly because I couldn't breathe through my nose, and that is not too conducive to sleeping, but I digress.  I read a couple chapters from "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" while sipping piping hot Coffee and indulging in a chocolate peanut butter LaraBar and a Banana.  That my friends, leads to this..... a Card made BEFORE sun-up!
I think it came out well, although the lighting is bad... I was trying to play with morning sunlight, and it seems I've failed miserably, But I was NOT going out in the freezing cold to take the pic.... OK, so I did try to do just that, but the stinking wind was too strong, and by the time I got the card upright and the camera focused, poof, Mother Nature knocked it down! I'm going to enter this card into the House Mouse Challenge (use one of their images and two, or more, hearts) and in the CPS challenge, which was a sketch! You can check them out by clicking on their names, by the way.

So it was off to the kitchen for me! I decided to bake some cupcakes to donate to the old folks home down town.  They send me a list of their birthdays of residents who don't have family in the area, and I bake cupcakes to take to them so they don't feel forgotten.  Today was a lady named Nevada's birthday, so she got some Milk Chocolate S'More Cupcakes!
I hope she likes them!

After all of that, my DH took me to the movies to see One For The Money, since I've real ALL the books! Love that stinking story! ha ha ha Too funny.  It was OK, not great, totally more of a Chick Flick, but bless him for laughing at the funny parts! ha haha

OK, time to finish my chores and take my kiddo to swim class.  See you all tomorrow!
