… For lack of a better title. LOL. I was thinking that was a lot of posts for a blog that isn’t quite two years old, and then, I realized it will be three years in August. Time flies, doesn’t it?
And, I don’t even have a “new” card to show you tonight. This is one my stamp group made last week – another stamp rolled frog with a purple pop-dotted flower. A purple bug, too. This card is like one in the summer catalog minus the cool folded flower I have yet to try.
Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Goldrush, and Topiary cardstock; Splendor paper packet; Citrus Leaf, Topiary, Goldrush, and Hydrangea ink pads; Goldrush marker; Hot Diggity stamp set; EK Success corner rounder (scallops); Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; 3M foam mounting tape.
Tonight, Mom, Cameron, Sarah, the little boys, and I attended a picnic/fundraiser at one of the local parks. The park is sponsored by the Kiwanis and is located where one of the neighborhood schools once was. The apartment building Mom lives in was built on the same block, which means the park is literally in her back yard. It’s also a block and a half from Cameron and Sarah’s house, so it’s where the little guys hang out when it’s nice outside. Playground equipment has been added as money has been raised. A group of volunteers recently built a shelter. I would guess restrooms are on the plan for somewhere down the line. Anyway, the weather was beautiful, and the turnout for tonight’s event was good, which means more improvements will be forthcoming. A good thing.
The talk of the town today is the announcement that the local newspaper has been sold. As a former employee, it will be interesting to see what changes take place. It will be fun, too, to hear what some of my former co-workers/friends, who are longtime employees, have to say. My job there as a writer/reporter was one I wished I’d never left, even though had I stayed, I am relatively certain I would have worked myself to death my now. LOL.
What is everyone up to this week? I guess if I want to know, I’d better go take a peek around the blogosphere. Talk to you again tomorrow. Take care.
