We spent the day in Monterey on Monday. I *love* this photo of Elizabeth watching a shark (and a BIG school of fishies!) in the million (yes, million!) gallon tank that is home to some HUGE and awesome fish. I could have stayed and watched the various fish for hours…
But, of course, there are other things to see. Here is one of the artful Jelly Fish exhibits. Such amazing creatures to watch- and so cool to photograph. I just wish there was less glare. I saw a few people taking flash photos and I wanted to tell them ‘dude. you’re just going to get glare!!!’ but instead I kept my thoughts to myself.
We had lunch at Bubba Gumps. The Hush pups (fried balls of goodness) were great, as was my ‘lava flow’ drink… everything else was just OK. Kind of a disappointment that the quality has gone down so low- but still good times.
and, no trip to Monterey would be complete without sharing some ice cream at the Ghirardelli soda shop. We got the “gold rush” complete with peanut butter and hot fudge. Oh yum.
Since then, it’s been quite the week. The Fisk-a-teer blog has been all wonky for… well… I dunno. Since Tuesday, I think. I can’t upload photos there, so I can’t blog really, and that’s totally been throwing my ‘blog mojo’ WAY off. So, rather than obsess about when that will be fixed I’ve been working hard off-line. It’s 2 weeks until National Scrapbook Day, and so preparations are in FULL swing. Want to see some stuff?
First- here is my desk at this very moment. (ok, so about 2hrs ago… but it took a while to upload photos and edit them. I barely have room to work- but I’ve been ON FIRE! (en fuego!) Seriously. In the last 20 hours I have made 8 layouts. No joke- EIGHT!!! I think that might be an all time high. I also think i’d better clean up this insane mess!!!
Here’s one using the Heidi Grace baby line that just started shipping…
My mom asked me “how can you be making a layout, watching a movie, and talking to me??” last night. I dunno. I guess I am just good at multi-tasking. My mom was visiting for a few days just to hang, but also so I could go teach a class at a retreat in Sacramento. (thanks mom!) Last night I couldn’t bring myself to cook- so we had girls night at Olive Garden. Elizabeth says ” I LOVE this place”. I mean- they have soup, olives, salad, bread, and pasta… it’s her dream come true and we never go there. (Jason isn’t a fan)
She looks a bit annoyed in the photo- I think it’s because her soup eating was interrupted!
Today has been a clean house/do laundry/make 5 layouts day… and I think it’s going to be an EARLY evening too. I’m tired, and I’ll work on (and tell you about!) crop packing and goodie bags and extra goodies to share tomorrow…
