Snowman with a cat Dear Winter

Today we are to have a drop in our temp to be a high of 62.  It will feel like a fall day.  We have had it hot and humid for quite awhile so it may actually feel like winter.  For my card, I used an image from Pink Gems and the sentiment is from TLC.  I added some bling to the snowflakes in the image.
My Dad, Uncle and a family friend are driving 3 days a week about 200 miles round trip each day to help me with some home repairs.  My Dad celebrated his 70th birthday on Wednesday while they were here working so I made a lunch and had a birthday cake for him for their afternoon snack.  This am it was raining so I had prepared chicken noodle soup, cheese garlic bread, Asian salad and  cantelope.  While I was getting everything all set the guys came in the house - my Dad from the patio and the other through the garage.  While they were eating, my Dad said you have a cat at your front Dad and sure enough he left the patio door open and all three of my cats went outside (which they never do). My male Siamese cat looked like the cat in this image peeking into the front door.  I was upset for his carelessness and my Dad does not feel I should have THREE cats, so we had a disagreement.  My parents have never had indoor pets and don't see the need. Then I am trying to sell a vehicle and the battery died so I had to get that replaced today so it has been a frustrating day....hope Friday will be better.
