Huh? Where'd my water go?

That is what I was thinking this morning.... about 5 minutes til 8am. If anyone knows me, they know I am always running behind. Technically I work 8-5, which means I leave the house about 8:05 if I'm doing good. When I'm doing really good it's 8:03. I'm one of those people that is putting on her shoes as she walks out the door...flying down the steps wondering if I unplugged everything I needed to unplug, turned the a/c up, and did I put on deodorant... so turning off my water at 5 minutes til 8am is a very very BIG deal! Because I never have even 5 seconds to spare!
At first I was like oh man... I was using hot water and it was flowing...then just trickled to nothing... the hot water heater started making this noise and I thought you've got to be kidding me! Just a few weeks from moving and the hot water heater is going to go out! But then I realized I had no cold water! Now I'm screeching.... SERIOUSLY?
I might as well just go to work now.... ahhhh there are people in my front yard...
This man had his head down the hole where my water meter belongs.
I was like You turn off my water???
He laughs and says oh yea...we are replacing the water meters.. you were next... we'll get it back on as soon as we can...
I was like DUDE.. I'm trying to get ready for work here... really at 5 to 8 you are going to pull peoples meters! You couldn't wait until 5 AFTER 8?
He says...you were next.
I said... yea, you said that already!

What are ya gonna do? I'll tell you what I did... I put on my shoes, grumbled all the way to the car and just went to work because I do not know how to install a water meter!

Here's a layout I did a few weeks back. It's when I went to NYC a couple years ago. I think it turned out really cute.
I used some paint and ink with a Tim Holtz mask that Serene gave me. I'm really going to have to use this technique more... I sure do like it. Did a little Glimmer Misting on my flowers to get them the colors I wanted. I'm really happy with this one.

Alrighty peeps! Wishing you all a good day with plenty of water!
As always...thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love. It always makes me smile!

I would have been grumbling too if they turned off my water as I was trying to get ready for work.

This lo is super fabulous. Your layering is great, as always. The colors are eye-catching but don't overpower the pics. Great job with the mask too.
