Well, today is Inauguration Day, and I had hoped to post something patriotic or symbolic of the event. Nope! I just didn't find the time. Instead, I am taking the easy way out and posting something I made for my other blog. If you would like to see the card instructions, they can be found here. My tree card doesn't have anything to do with the inauguration except it is a winter card and it reminds me of all the people freezing on the Mall today.
On a personal note, I was exited to participate (somewhat) in the inauguration when I went downtown Sunday to see the inauguration concert. I know everyone has differing political views, but for me, it was important to see what was happening in DC and to go hear Barack Obama speak. Plus, the concert was amazing!
Here is a picture of people headed to the Lincoln monument. A couple of people showed up for the event.
I watched some of the live MSNBC broadcast from the Mall. I might have been on tv. Did anyone see me? I was the one dressed warmly and waving. :)
I walked up to the Capitol Building. I took a picture of this bird standing on the Capitol reflecting pool to show you how cold it was that day. You can even see the Capitol reflected in the ice.
Finally, I am including a picture of the Capitol Building all decked out for the inauguration. It was really something to see.
DC is crazy right now with all the inauguration activity, but I am so glad I was able to be a part of it. I am really hoping for good things for all of us.
