So, today was supposed to be a day that I would get to sleep in, vote, do some relaxing. And it was. Minus the sleeping and relaxing part. Turns out, because of the two flood days we missed, staff had to report to work today. Although, I have to admit that a day at work with no students isn't that bad, it still could have been much more relaxing and sleep-in-ish. :)
I learned something last night. Some useful advice if you ever plan on running for office. (1) When campaigning door-to-door, do not honk your car horn in someone's driveway and expect them to come to you. (2) When you finally do manage to get to my door, don't start quizzing me about all the surrounding addresses that you haven't visited yet. I do not like being reduced to a checkmark on a list. Also, it just makes you seem like you're lost, and not necessarily someone I would vote for. (3) Oh, and it's always a good idea to talk about what you plan to do, and you should be the one to bring this up. House numbers do not equal platform.
I learned all this from one candidate last night.
I actually did some scrapping tonight. I made this sketch based on the 5.13 Sketchy Thursdays challenge. I used some pics froma recent game night...btw I really like the way these hipstamatic prints turn out. They're so pretty when they're printed glossy.
And I made a couple more just for the fun of it. This one is about the bike trail that Mike bulit. I love the photos of him riding.
I made this one a few weeks ago, but am just getting around to posting it now. I am so into these pretty spring colors. I hope it's a trend that sticks around for a little while...you know, like, through Spring. Maybe into summer. Pretty please? :)
And if you need a reason why I heart Lola so much, I looked down from my scrapping tonight to see this:
Yep. Gotta love a cat that curls up at your scrap table for a nap.
