Blah, Blah Monday

If I were a smarter person, I would have taken today off. Historically, on the Monday after Crop Camp, I feel as if the life has been drained from me. Today is no exception.

It’s not a weekend where I sleep very much (and I do the bulk of my sleeping on weekends) so it stands to reason that I’d be exhausted today – and I am. It was a marvelous weekend, filled with laughter and progress. In fact, I set a personal Crop Camp record by completing 51 pages. (Yes, that’s right, FIFTY-ONE. More than half of those were from the Monkeygirls’ wedding!) That’s almost twice what I usually get done on a good camp weekend. So, it was uber-productive and I’m pleased to say that 2006 is DONE and 2007 is under way!

It’s not all about pages and scrapbooking though. Just hangin’ with this group of friends (including the MonkeyGirl, Mama Martha and Harriet) is too much fun. And this year didn’t disappoint there either. Thanks so much, everyone! The adjectives are just too tame to describe how much fun it was. We even welcomed two “newbies” to the group (new to camp, not to scrapbooking) and I think we successfully made an addict out of one of them.

It all goes so quickly though and before you know it, it’s back to reality. Oy! And Monday, too. OUCH!

The good news is that the weather is improving dramatically. It’s still cold to be sure, but … it is NOT the frozen tundra that it’s been the past week or so. Today, we’re headed for 30! And already, it’s warmer right now in the predawn minutes than it was all day Saturday! That makes me very happy indeed.

It was a fabulous weekend and I was sad to see it end. I was happy though to come home to the comfort of my own bed and my own personal Snuggie (better known as Ozzie). So as we close the book on another year’s event, the pages are already turning on future memories to be preserved. And the counter is gone until this fall ...

Can’t wait to get to the pictures!

Glad you had a good weekend at Crop Camp! That sounds like so much fun. I need to get caught up on my scrapbooking too...

It was a good weekend and KUDOS go out to the Crop Camp Queen, NV! You were/are a powerhouse and we love you for it. I can't wait to crop again.

Glad you had fun this weekend and while tiredness isn't great, at least the weather is looking up.

When I stepped outside this morning it felt like spring was here, which is sad when it was only 25. Here's to later in the week, when we enter the 40s.

Glad to hear you had fun! It's so nice to be able to spend time with friends, and be productive :) I need to start something like that around here at the community center so I can get some digital scrapbooking done.

Jayne -- You should make a road trip and come join us one year!

MM -- It was great, wasn't it? A few more times like that and I might actually be cropping 2009 photos!

Kristy -- Yeah. At least we were mostly in for the whole weekend!

Victoria --Yep. Gotta love those.

Vicki -- While scrapbooking IS something you CAN do on your own, it's infinitely more fun as a group activity!
