C came to me yesterday and asked if I would unbutton his shirt so he can be like Indiana Jones. I just had to laugh and take pictures. Notice his "inspiration." Between the movies DH bought after seeing #4, and the Lego game for the Wii, we are all about Indy here.

I used Picnik on this for post-processing. I just realized my printer is out of ink, so I need to make an emergency run to Staples or Costco so I can print out my handout for my class today. Usually my sweet hubby takes care of the emergency runs for stuff for me, but he's camping today with H. Off I go--more pictures later!

Well, my job ended on Friday the thirteenth. We decided to take a quick mini-vacation that was a wonderful break on Mon-Tues-Wed. (two nights, we arrived Monday evening at Depoe Bay). We made it home about 5pm on Wednesday evening, where I then proceeded to whip out a baby gift for my friend's baby shower that evening. Thursday was errands, with Joel and H leaving for a father/son campout with the Tolman's, (both of them missed the Father-Son campout our church planned earlier this year, so they decided to do their own). So here it is Friday, my first real "break" day this month. And all I can do is sit around the house.
I'm nursing the worst sunburn I've had in over a decade (notice how my white shirt is nearly the same color as my skin tone), and I should be making the handout for my classes at Stampin'Cat tomorrow. I'll get to them. I just wanted to check in here first!

What do you think? Could be fun! Let me know if you want some examples of what I'm talking about.

The view from our window. That's the Columbia River in the background there. Lots of houseboats down that-a-ways.
The whole retreat was very delightful! Loved the beautiful hotel, loved the courtyard, loved the view, loved hanging out with this gal:
We realized that we've been friends now for just about 5 years. That's pretty cool in my book! We also liked that we can be around each other without having to be "guarded" in the things we say or do--meaning that we've been friends for so long we really understand and accept each other. It's a true treasure to me. So is she.Our crop room. That's Cheryl's special office chair in the foreground. My table is on the other side of hers.
All in all, a great time. It even made me think that I might put a Cricut to use (I've been kinda anti-electric die cut machines---I didn't think I'd really use it. And if I'm not really going to use it, I'm not going to spend the money on it.). I'm looking forward to the next one!
