Happy Sunday Everyone.. And OSAAT Challenge #138

Good morning everyone!! We have had a beautiful weekend here in Georgia! The weather has been great and I have had the windows and door open! I love fall!! It has been another busy week. I'm trying to get it back to calm LOL Hopefully that is coming.

Okay... On to the One Stitch At A Time Challenge .. We are doing Challenge #138 this week and the theme is Anything Goes!! I know you all love that one!! This week I used "Monkey Love" by Kaz Krafts! I LOVE this image!! They are just too cute!!

So let's see... the kids left the T-Bone out on Thursday. He doesn't do well out of his kennel. He is rather destructive... separation anxiety or something. So, he stays in his kennel while I am at work and they are at school. Well.. that didn't happen on Thursday.. this was the third time recently that the kids have done this. He chewed at the trim around the door... he tore up more blinds.. the blinds in my room and the ones at the back door. My mother had gotten me one of those magic mesh screen door type things for my back door.. he destroyed it. I was NOT very happy to come home to that. T-Bone got scolded and then the kids got a BIG chewing out! I was able to find another one of those magic mesh screens and I put that up this weekend. I LOVE that thing!! It goes around your door.. has magnets in the middle.. so you go through it and then it closed behind you. A screen door without having a screen door. Stops all the bugs from creeping in and the dog and the cats can go out on the back balcony. It's really great!

What else... Kevin's father came down to visit him. He arrived last Sunday and I was able to hang out on Skype with them for a bit each day. He just left yesterday morning. It was really nice to be able to see him and meet him. Kevin has a really bad ankle.. he had a really bad injury years ago. Him and his dad have been out and about all week and yesterday his ankle swelled up. His ankle was worse Saturday morning and aching and keeping him from sleeping. We will see how he feels later on. Poor thing.. he is sleep deprived and in pain. He is suppose to be keeping it up and resting. I hope he feels better! I can't believe how swollen it is. I'm hoping he will go in to the doctor if it is still that swollen his Monday morning.

Saturday was a day full of crafting. I was able to get three cards done! Don't laugh LOL I'm slow!! That's a HUGE day for me! LOL So sad *shaking my head* I completed one card and after looking at it for a while, hated it, tore it apart and started over LOL I like it better the second time around. I need to take photos of it today. The kids did a bit of cleaning on Saturday and will be doing the last bit of finishing up today after church. We made chocolate chip cookies yesterday and the apartment smells great! This morning when we get home from church I think I might make some pancakes. There is a really simple recipe for pancakes that I pinned and I am wanting to try it out. I'm cooking a lasagna for lunch and I'll be working on some more cards. I'm trying to get back ahead of my responsibilities!  That is the goal :)

I hope ya'll have a blessed day!!

This is such a gorgeous card. Love the bright colors and how you have colored those sweet monkeys.

Can't believe how much of a perfectionist you are... lol that card was beautiful... so sad that you just put it apart...

I love how you colored the monkeys!! So perfect! You amaze me with your talent. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry about the destruction at your place. Hope the kids can remember to tuck him in before they head out for the day. Maybe a sticky note on each of their foreheads??

what a super cute image with the monkies, they look adorable. Doesn't sound like you had a good time once you discovered the dog hadn't been put back in his cage while you were out. Thanks for playing along at Bearly Mine Challenges this week.
