A productive weekend

The hubby and I decided to spend our three day weekend camping... in the snow. Yup, there was about an inch of snow on the ground when we got to the campground, but since we have an RV (with a furnace), it's not really a big deal. We were toasty warm the whole weekend. What I couldn't believe was the number of people camping in tents. Crazy! Fortunately the snow was pretty much melted by the end of the second day as you can see here.

It was our first weekend with the new satellite dish in the RV. I couldn't believe how easy it was to set up. But I have to confess there's something very decadent about sitting in the RV watching all the same shows I would be watching at home with the same DVR capability we have at home to pause TV. Matt was thrilled to watch hours of NASCAR while camping. Because it was so cold outside, we only went for a couple of walks so we watched a lot of TV.

Most of the time, I was making cards.... 76 of them! I had picked up boxes of the DCWV the Natural and La Creme card bases at Jo-Ann's when they had them on sale a few weeks ago and the mat stacks to go with. I had packed a limited amount of supplies, mostly punches, ribbon, my Irock and a few embellishments. When I was done, I realized that I hadn't missed my whole stash of supplies but had been able to made do easily with what I had there. There was only one card base that I didn't want to use because I knew I needed something from my room that I hadn't brought with.

Overall it was a pretty good weekend. Camping in the snow was kind of fun, Chewie had a great time watching the Canadian geese and other birds (yes we take a cat camping, usually two, but this time Tigger didn't want to come with), the satellite worked perfectly and I got a lot of cards made up for future use.

So the weekend was great, but this week is killing me with several people out so I'm trying to cover three jobs and still do my own. Yesterday I started at work at 6 a.m. straight through to my evening speaking engagement, so I didn't pull in to the garage until 10 p.m. Then today there was lots of drama I could have done without so, even though it was more of a normal work day, I feel like I've been through the ringer trying to get everything done. I'm too tired to do more tonight. I'll add pictures of some of the card styles later when I'm a little less zombie-ish feeling.

Well at least you were warm and toasty and the scenery was nice. But I think it wwould have been so cold in a tent. Looks like you are stocked up with cards for a while. Hugs GJ xx
