Well, here I am – sitting at the gate in the Atlanta Airport. Waiting to leave for CA for four months. 120 some odd days. A gazillion hours. Might I just say….yuk. And, I’m not going to the beach. Or Yosemite. Or Lake Tahoe. Nope – I’ll be in the Inland Empire. Code for….the desert part way to Death Valley, a stone’s throw from Barstow, hit the middle of nowhere and turn right. If I’m being honest, which is a little hard, cause I’m not all that excited about going so, like a spoiled toddler, I’m simply not going to admit that there could POSSIBLY be ANYthing good about the place….but….it has a unique beauty that occasionally catches you unaware. Sunrises and sunsets are beautiful – and you can see forever. And, when it’s rained in the high desert – well. the scent is simply wonderful. And there’s both a Costco AND a Sam’s! I don’t hate it when I get there. I don’t hate it when I’m there. I hate the “getting there” part. Leaving my husband, the horses, the dog, the kitties. So, allow me just a moment to wallow in my self pity…..
Okay. Done. I promise. No more dwelling. It is what it is.
So, I’ll use my time before the boarding call to send this post out – and draft the one that will come out tomorrow morning (yes, I AM the Queen of Time Management. She says….again….never!). That one will have a card project to share, and the weekly deals that start tomorrow.
My next post after tomorrow will likely not be until next week. My stamping stash is on it’s way to CA via UPS as we speak. But, they’re going to take it on a donkey train, or perhaps a slow boat around the Cape of Good Hope – cause it’s not getting there until a week from today! And, although my Big Shot and my paper is in my suitcase….all the ink and stamps and embellishments – aren’t.
In the meantime – check out the deals below. Today’s the last day to snag those up.
Here’s a final picture for you – not a card. Just a “something pretty” to brighten your Monday – I snapped it on Saturday, before the Arctic Blast started to sneak it’s way into GA. Apparently, my Christmas Cactus is a little calendar-challenged! It just went crazy over the weekend and is just gorgeous. Enjoy!
