Still Around and WIP Wednesday

I would like to say that  I have neglected to post because I was busy but really that isn't true, Monday was provincial election day here in Albertaland and this election was the scariest of my little lefty life. I am and always have been a lefty and the party projected to win were so righty it made righties scared. Fortunately for lefties and righties alike, the ultra-rigthies made some serious blunders (ahem racism ahem bigotry) in the last week of the campaign so Albertans stuck with what they knew and voted PC; first time in my lefty life I have cheered a PC win. My beloved NDP doubled their party size ( 2 more seats) and while I consider the Wild Rose to be scary I think they may have opened the door for more political diversity here and that could be a very good thing. Blah blah blah politics, on to the crafts and cute kids!
