I've voted ... have you?
Here in California we had 'early voting' from October 19th-28th ... so I went to the polls at the local City Hall yesterday afternoon to cast my ballot. It feels good to have done this early, and if you have that option where YOU live ... (and you've decided how to cast your votes on all the candidates & ballot measures) ... I encourage you to do so. I feel so relieved on a personal level. Now my only remaining challenge is to remain calm in the face of all that is beyond my control ;--)

If you're still undecided on candidates or ballot measures & need additional information, here are some links to assist.
Once you've cast your ballot, go to Mommy Wizdom's and sign the Mr. Linky there to participate in the Election Night Blog Party 2008! Click for details.

To my bloggy friends
who dropped by and left
words of encouragement ...

Thanks again for the well-wishes. The weather is changing so I'm hoping my symptoms will fade with onshore breezes helping to raise humidity levels to a more normal level. I've been listening to foghorns since awakening and can't see the houses across the street yet but I'm not complaining ... in fact I'm hoping the rain will reach us all the way down in Southern California rather than run out of steam north of here as have previous storm systems. We need rain so much!

Unfortunately, in just a few days of 'resting' to recover from what ails me, my 'reader' has 1000+ unread posts once again (even though I had it down to less than 700 over the weekend) and there are 571 unread emails. I'm hoping to make a dent in both today. I posted (almost) Wordless Wednesday #52 at Sacred Ruminations earlier and figure I'll 'ramble' here a bit to see what shows up on the page ... just because.

I made it through my PSE6 class yesterday ... finished my 2nd Caribbean Cruise Video ... converted them both to WMV format ... but didn't get them both transferred to a DVD yet. Hopefully I'll be able to do that on Thursday. We'll be creating DVD 'jackets' and 'labels' during the remaining 3 sessions of this 'Organizer' class ... something I've done previously with my Taos Slideshows/Videos. The 2nd Caribbean video contains a few videoclips of on-board entertainment ... so it's much longer than my previous projects.

Reminder about the upcoming 5th Blog Blast for Peace!
Have you created YOUR Peace Globe yet?
As Mimi Lenox says ...
"If words are powerful ... then this matters."

Clicking on the logo above (or at the top of my sidebar) will take you to information about how to get YOUR Peace Globe to decorate & share between now and November 6th in the 5th Launch of Dona Nobis Pacem. We're counting down ...

My new Peace Globes for November's Blog Blast post (#4, 5, & 6) are in my sidebar along with my first two (previously published in June) and I've sent them to Mimi to publish as well. If you need help adding 'text' to the graphics available from Mimi's blog, I'm willing to assist as time permits. I invite everyone to participate and to visit others too.
Click Peace Globe Gallery graphic below
to see Globes others have created.

And now ... a little Halloween fun. I hope you'll share your results in comments or leave a link if you share them on your blog ;--)
What Your Jack-o-Lantern Says
You are a gleeful, exuberant person.

You enjoy a good party, and you even enjoy a good brawl.

This Halloween, there is no question what you should be... a pirate!

The candy you should give out: peanut butter cups

Hey guess what we're doing tonight...craving our pumpkins. Aidan's been dying since I bought them to crave them. LOL

It's good that you voted. That's very important. I voted by absentee ballot a few weeks ago. I agree, it took much weight off my mind. I hope you start feeling better. It's no fun being sick. Take care my friend.

Storyteller, I'm so glad you joined the Election Blog Party and that you're spreading the word. Feel free to grab the logo - that's what it's for. :-)

Evidently I'm cheerful and happy go lucky.

Karen said...

I wish we did have early voting--it's actually on the ballot this year, so maybe next time...

Momisodes said...

I really wish we had early voting here in Massachusetts. Good for you for heading out early to vote!

Sending you healing vibes. Hope you're getting some rest today.

Joyce said...

Hope you continue to feel better and better, Storyteller.

Thank you for referring me over to Sylvia's blog; she's an inspiring writer. I voted today, BTW! Now, we wait and see . . .

I'm the same Jack-o-Lantern as you. :)

I must say I know more people voting this time. :) We voted last week. :)
