We decided today that we were going to go vote. They opened up several more early voting places this week. People have been waiting 2 or more hours in line to vote the last couple of weeks so we thought it would be a good idea to go today. Well - it was a bad idea. The government center closest to us had a backup of traffic almost a mile long just trying to get near the building. We gave up and came home. Just heard on the news that over 20 percent of the registered voters have already voted here. They expect that 30 percent will have voted by the time election day comes around.
Another thing on my list was to get a flu shot - I went to Walgreens where they have a nurse practitioner who can give shots. Here in Georgia this year, you have to have a prescription to get a shot, instead of being able to get one at any Pharmacy. I had to wait for 45 minutes but I had my book with me that I was planning on reading in the voting line so I passed the time and got the flu shot out of the way.
This evening I taught my monthly Beyond Beginners class.
We were working on paper piecing. The above is Lorie's blocks and Stephanie's is below.
