Scappin' Weekend

Well, I had a lovely long weekend scrapping with the girls up in the mountains of Georgia. I think we all had visions of getting a little bit more done than we did but we each managed to complete one project so in my mind that was a success. We also enjoyed the no pressure, no rush of it all. We had the freedom to do what ever we felt like even if it meant taking a nap or just watching TV. I think I'm the only one who didn't take any naps. The view from the cabin was a lovely gander at Blue Ridge Lake off in the distance and the weather was close to perfection.

We did have an undocumented amenity at the cabin of a "skinny fridge". I think you can figure it out but it was curved in such a way as to cause you to shed all those excess pounds. Here I caught the girls taking pictures of their reflections in the "skinny fridge". I purposely picked the blurriest picture to hopefully cut down on the flack I'll get for posting it. ;-)

View from the screened in porch.

I'll post what my project was later but here are some pics of all our stuff setup.

And yes there is a laptop, printer and cricut there.

Needs Google search band wagon

Ok, I'm joining the Google search band wagon. Here is what "Laurel needs":

to be praised (who doesn't)
were related to operating... (not sure what I'm operating)
to communicate with a student about their work, attitude, or "peer level qualities" (thankfully I'm not a teacher)
YOUR HELP! (always)
to conduct a new needs assessment (probably)
YOU! (for sure)
to attract (what? could be scary)
a makeover (for sure!)
ECI (have no idea)
a operating system reinstall (probably goes with the make over)

Oddly enough someone else compiled a Laurel Needs list but they were a little more choosey:

Laurel needs acid soil and excellent drainage. (that is so true)
Laurel needs summer days with high heat. (so not true!)
Laurel needs a bigger bust. (might fall over if that happened)
Laurel needs to comply. (dream on)
Laurel needs a date. (highly over rated)
Laurel needs clothing for an adult male. (must be for that date. guess he's showing up naked which might be okay)
Laurel needs a room that matches her artistic side. (almost done)
Laurel needs something to calm her down. (probably, since I'm not dating)
Laurel needs a recovery strategy. (possibly from that date)
Laurel needs us. (true!)
