Hi everyone. It is the first T of November, and being the first Tuesday of the month, it is also election day. And today in the US it is an important one.
The people down the road from me are still doing their skeleton scenes, and this latest one is very appropriate. (Sorry it's tough to see. I didn't want to walk onto their lawn to get a photo from my phone.)
You can see the stars and stripe cloth which acts as the voting booth cover. In our town we open a cloth curtain, go into a little booth to vote using paper and a Sharpie; then when we come out, we feed our ballot into a machine. There is a skeleton with the boxing gloves as this is a contentious election on both sides, and the leaning skeleton is holding a sign that says Go Vote.
I voted early so I won't need to go visit the elementary school where voting in my little town occurs today. If you live in the US and are able to vote, and if you haven't yet voted, I hope you visit your voting center!
Last week in my house we celebrated 2 birthdays. I will warn you, there are some food photos here!
My husband's was last Thursday. He got this balloon at work.
He wanted a Boston cream pie, which is really a 2 layer sponge cake with creme patisserie in between the layers and a glaze of chocolate frosting on top.
Friday was my daughter's birthday. She requested a Key Lime Pie. I also made that, except I bought a premade graham cracker crust.
That's enough for me today. I am linking up my photos to Art Everyday Month.
Thanks for visiting!
