The Greeting Farm Baseball Ian

Hi Friends! Today is my day off. Your like. . .you don't work, Maria. I know . .but day off from having to drive my daughter to her school so I had this grandiose idea to drive a 75 mile drive to Point Loma Lighthouse in San Diego to take pictures of the scenery. Unfortunately, my husband thought I was crazy and didn't think it was a good idea to drive there by myself. My daughter went to the beach with her friends otherwise, we could have gone together.

I know. . .I have a lot of other things I need to do but whenever I have a chance to do them. . I, instead, put them off and want to do something else. . .something more adventurous.

Well, after talking to my husband. . .he sorta killed my spirits. . .I don't mind driving 75 miles to Point Loma. . .even if it's by myself. I understand his point but at the same time. . I really would have done it if my husband didn't try to reason with me.

Are you that way? Do you sometimes spontaneously want to do something grandiose and exciting even if it's not reasonable? I'm that way a lot and someone always seem to try to bring me down to earth. I was always this way. ..even when I was a kid. The restrictions sort of drove me bonkers when I was a child. I was known as a the "wild kid". LOL! Seriously. . .my family saw me that way. I came from a conservative family . . .so you can imagine what "wild" was to them.

Now that I'm older. . .way older, I'm no longer adventurous. . .sometimes, once in a great while, my old me sort of manifest itself but usually someone comes along and reason with me. I'm more receptive to reasoning now. . .when I was a child, not too much. Back then. . .life was a bit more carefree so it was okay.

Anyway. . enough of my yapping. I decided to use my TGF Baseball Ian stamp. . .colored the little guy with my Copic Markers and managed to create a somewhat masculine card. Not too much frills but just a little bit to satisfy my need to add embellishments to my card.

Today is Friday . . .I hope you all enjoy your day and maybe even your evening. Party up for me, okay since I can't . . .LOL!
