Voter Tuesday

Yes I voted. Late, but I voted. Our plan was to get out early as soon as the polls open. Plans change so we voted after work. This is the first time I really remember actually seeing "I Voted" stickers on just about everyone I came into contact with today. I am eagerly awaiting the results. Since our house is a split ticket it will be interesting to see what happens. A lot has changed in my own life in the past few years and I have changed my attitude tremendously on some issues. I knew from early on who I was leaning towards. The more I heard particular views on pending issues, the easier my decision became more concrete. Maybe it's age, maybe it's confidence or even ignorance, but I am choosing more and more to let people know why I disagree with them. I work to pay bills, to grow as a person, and to enjoy life. I'm tired of other people taking advantage of that!!

Now on to brighter topics. My friend Toni sent me more pictures last night. I have to share.



Don't you just want to throw down your blanket, lay down and read a book? I love this old barn. It's gorgeous!! I bet it has lots of stories!! Thanks Toni, I eagerly await new pictures!!!

Hi Lisa; I agree with you completely on this post; and I agree with the comment you left on my post about picking up the dress in person; Now after we were done "visiting" Scotland, do you think they would ban us for life? LOL! I think we would really have WAY too much fun together there; poor Diane; she would have to put up with us :)

Wonderful pics, again - and great post. I too feel as I get older, and I am less inclined to worry about the status quo. Isn't that great about maturing? Remember as a teen having to almost think like everyone else? I'm glad you feel like you can disagree and stand up for whatever you believe in.

Stop on over, I have an award for ya!
