Thinking of You - in black and white

With a little red thrown in for color.

The Internet swap I signed up for was a black and white color scheme with a little shot of one other color.

My first choice was not red.

But instead of having a caard made from a piece of paper just folded over, I wanted to use two separate pieces of paper, held together at the side by eyelets.

And the only color I had enough of in the eyelets was red. So red it was.

After that it was pretty easy.

I had waited until beyond the last minute to do this card. It is due in Ohio on March 15.

So I kept it simple. Plus I like simple.

I got these done pretty fast on Monday and sent them out yesterday to arrive by March 14.

The stamps are just random things I have here. I don't know brands or anything.

There is a bit of glitter on the little red flowers. It is hard to see in the picture.

No fancy tricks or techniques. No time for that.

Saving daylight

The change didn't really hurt me. I know some people get whacked out by "losing" an hour.

Maybe since I was off Sunday and Monday it didn't hurt me.

Maybe because I don't really live by the alarm clock it didn't hurt me.

I don't know.

But I do know that it was nice to be outside last night at about 6:30 and it was light and warm.

And I know that I enjoyed having the manfriend cook me up a steak on the grill, along with some veggies.

And I know that I will like the possibility of getting out of work, at least on occasion, while there is even a little bit of sunlight left.

So, what else is going on?

Not much.

I had jury duty last Wednesday. I was going to blog about it, real time. But there is no WiFi at the courthouse.

Not in Long Beach anyway. That court building is really falling apart.

But they do have a nice rooftop deck area right outside the jury assembly room. So I could get some sun and sea air and take in the view of the water.

Yep. A dumpy old government building right across the street from the ocean. Nice.

What else...?

I got my taxes done over the weekend. That took a good portion of the day Sunday. But it was worth it.

And yesterday I pretty much did nothing. Which was nice.

I put together a quick card for an Internet swap and got those mailed out today.

I will try to get a picture of that up here tonight. If I am not outside enjoying the last dregs of daylight.
