I had quite an exciting day today. I got up at around 6 a.m. and decided to do the Proverbs 31 woman thing of preparing food for my household while everyone was still asleep. Okay. Maybe I only do that about once a year, but it must count for something.
My DH was going to work today after having suffered with a migraine yesterday and still feeling the after effects today. So I made him some hot cereal and packed him a nice lunch. I even put a little note in his lunch, thanking him for being a good provider. Honestly, I enjoyed doing it. I wish I had the energy to do stuff like that more often.
I dropped Terry off at work and headed to a friend's house to pick up my Stampin' Up order. Then I went home to take care of all my fids (furry and feathered kids). I started two new batches of Kombucha tea since Terry and I both like it and both find it gives us more energy. I cleaned up the kitchen and started the dishwasher, etc...
A couple of hours later, I drove my DS into town and stopped at the grocery store. And that's when my day got a little strange. From a close range I saw a woman get hit almost head-on by a van. She shot up onto the hood partway and then back to the pavement. It was quite traumatic to witness; not like a fender bender. This was actually a vulnerable, middle-aged pedestrian being hit and propelled onto the hood of a big vehicle. I was shook the rest of the afternoon.
Of course I waited for the police so I could give my testimony. I got a call from the officer an hour or so later. He asked me a few questions and that's when I found out that the driver reported having made a left-hand turn, while I was sure he had made a right-hand turn. He was behind me and I witnessed the accident in my side-view mirror. I have to consider that I was wrong about the direction he turned, but I don't understand how I could have had such a good view of the front of his van if he had been traveling the other direction. I know perspective is a funny thing, especially during traumatic events, so I have to consider that I was wrong about the direction he was traveling.
In any event, he did hit her and I did see that, as did several other people who rushed to her aid. I hope there were other witnesses who stayed behind to give their perspectives.
And, somehow, in the midst of this unusual day, I managed to put together a card. The sentiment is by Digi Sparkle and the image is by Just Some Lines. It was one of the images given for CDAC's Progressive Freebie Challenge. The embossed paper was made by inking an embossing folder with blue ink and using white cardstock.
I am also entering this card into this week's greeting challenge at The Outlawz which is an "Anything Goes" challenge.
Good night all. I am hoping for a very boring day tomorrow.
I am also entering this card in the Ready-Teddy-Go challenge for October called, "Punch it Out".
