Let the Sun Shine In

Mom was telling me this morning that one of her friends was complaining about the rain in Louisiana and she thought they should come to Washington sometime. We have had a bit less than we usually get this year, but when it rains, it still pours. For the next five days we are supposed to get sunshine. I can’t wait! I wish it could last longer, but the rain keeps things green around here and in light of how things have been going in places like California and Texas, I won’t complain.

This is one of my other collages. It is done – for now. I almost ran out of matte medium, my collage adhesive of choice these days. I use mod podge for most of my 3-d decoupage projects but the matte medium works better for me with the journals. I have started on my latest Inspiration Wednesday and I know I will have fun with it because I always do. I saw a couple of interesting prospects for craft projects while I was out and about yesterday, but my mind is still open.

Lunch with friends and legal marijuana.

¬†This afternoon I had lunch with one of my favorite people, and guess what she asked me about? The radio show. Hmmm. We talked about all of the stuff our families are up to and all of the other things that are going on, like legal marijuana in our state. It’s really interesting, because I’ve had a few people I know in other states ask me about it and ¬† it’s not like the people in our state behave in a way that’s really drastically different than the people in other states. It’s just that people are 1) tired of our state being broke, 2) tired of the severe unfairness with which marijuana penalties are enforced, and 3) tired of the fact that criminal interests are the only ones served by our drug laws. This election cycle, enough people in all three categories voted and that resulted in Washington, and I suspect Colorado, passing that legislation. Unfortunately, I have a big feeling that the road to legal weed is not nearly as rosy as a lot of voters hoped it would be.
