2 second Win

Well, the Junior Iditarod finished up yesterday morning at 8:49 am and in the closest winner ever, the winner won by only 2 seconds. Why you may ask am I reporting on a race that few have probably heard of? Because the winner is 17 year old Jessica Klejka of Bethel. She is a senior at Bethel Regional High School. She beat out Lance Mackey's (2007 Iditarod winner and Yukon Quest winner for 2007, 2008) stepson Cain. Well I would type more but I have a Skeeter in my lap and a Chubbs trying to join us.

My Weekend Fun

Once again, we had our group Stampin get together. We were working with a few different colors of green and purple. Here's a sampling of the cards I made.

So what do you all think? One's a Father's Day card, one is a Mother's Day card, one is a Thinking of You for my Grandma and the other 2 have no specific purpose yet.

On a side note, I think I screwed up our printer. Actually it isn't even our printer. It's an old HP Laserjet 5 that I borrowed from a lady I work with. I was printing things the other day and it was working fine, then it just stopped. I don't know if something got stuck in it or what. I've looked and looked and can't seem to find anything in it.

Well, that's it for now. I get to help judge the School District Science Fair tomorrow and Wednesday. I'm looking forward to that. I have so much fun when I get to interact with the kids. I definitely don't get to do enough of that during the school year. I've been going crazy just sitting in my office the past couple of weeks. Good thing there are things like this to get me out.

This Weekends Adventures

Well, I have big plans for this weekend. First of all, I found out that there is a Digi Scrap Treasure Hunt going on. 42 different designers will have free stuff throughtout their blogs and stores. They only problem is that you have to search for them, download them and then unzip them to find the next clue. That's going to eat up alot of my download MB, but the 25th is the end of the month so I need to use it up.

Tomorrow will be sent hopefully search the world wide web for these goodies. I also have a friend here who is wanting to get rid of some of her stamps that she doesn't use for cheap and is giving me first dibs. I will probably do that tomorrow also.

Sunday I will have the opportunity to stamp again. We have our next group get together and I'm excited to see what's in store. I've become addicted to stamping and have ordered a few things off ebay and am planning on putting in a little order through Stampin Up.

Eric is supposed to be leaving for the Yukon River tomorrow to do Moose counts. They were suppose to go out earlier this week but weather has kept him grounded. Tomorrow is suppose to clear up and they shoud be able to fly.

Well, I will sign off for now and I'll write more later.

My Fun Weekend

Okay, I know the new weekend is almost here, but I just finally got some time to post a few pictures about the fun I had last weekend. I've joined a stamping/crafty group that meets once a month to do various activities. Each time we will do some type of activities and we will also do some cards. This past weekend we worked on treat bags, wrapped candy bars and cards. I think the cards are suppose to have a general theme, but I just plain janed mine so I could use them for anything. I think I might be addicted to crafting in general. I love scrapbooking, really am starting to get into stamping and of course I can never forget my crochet. So here are some of the goodies. We are getting together again on the 24 to do some more. I can't wait. In the meantime (this weekend) I'm getting together with Letty to do some scrapbooking at my house. I think I might be addicted to crafts. Is that possible? Well, without further ado, here are the pictures. Enjoy~

Yesterday's Science Lesson

My friend Letty is in the process of trying to get her brother a cat for his new apartment. She mentioned he wanted a Russian Blue, so naturally I had to go to the Cat Fanciers web site and look up what they looked like. While search the site I decided to take a look at all of the other breeds to see if I could find anything as cute as Maine Coons. Of course, I couldn't find any, but I came across an interesting breed. The Somali breed has the looks of a fox, but is definitely a cat.

Well, there is your science lesson for yesterday.

Today's Science Lesson

When we got home from work tonight, Eric told me we needed to get a Raccoon Dog. I said "WHAT"? A raccoon dog. These are dogs, but they look like raccoons. So naturally I had to look it up on the internet. Here is what they look like.

So, what do you all think? Should we get one? Actually they are wild animals and don't make very good pets. If you want to read more about them, check of Wikipedia. Don't they look like something out of a Disney movie? They look so fake, but so cute.

Well, there is everyone's science lesson of the day.

Hometown Boys

We happened to be flipping through channels on Saturday afternoon when we stopped on Channel 38. We stopped on the channel because we saw a familiar face and heard a familiar name. What was that name you might ask? The name was Brock - Brock Lesnar. Former WWE wrestler. You see, channel 38 is SPIKE TV, home of the (UFC) Ultimate Fighting Championship. Brock had a pay per view match on Saturday night. It cost $44.95 for the fight. Eric and I thought about getting it, but decided against it when we found out the cost. Good thing. Brock was done in 90 seconds. He lost by submission to his opponent.

Now, why you may be asking, why did I entitle this post Hometown Boys. Well, Brock Lesnar grew up around my home town. He went to school in Webster and was a pretty good wrestler throughout high school. I knew him by association through a friend (thanks Kristi ;) It's always cool to see someone you know/knew achieve this kind of success. (raise your glass) Here's to the little people.
