By the time this weekend rolled around for me I was one tired girl. I was ready for a night or two at home, and I'm not even raising my kids anymore! I saw that some of my friends were dressed up for Halloween, some with different costumes for days and nights. I loved seeing all the photos on the internet, which is all that I got out of Halloween, I don't go out, and for the 2nd year in a row I had no trick or treaters at my house. I had two candy dishes ready and it was lit up light Fort Knox here. So disappointing. I was so hopeful! Since I've lived out of town I just don't have the kid traffic I once had. There is one little girl that rides across my property on her 4 wheeler as she goes to a little friends house. I thought surely she would stop by. Maybe I'll chase after her and ask her whyyyyyy she didn't come get candy from me. That's not creepy at all.
The rest of the weekend was filled with shopping, painting, photography, sports, dining out, a wedding, going to Church, and last but not least going to the gun range to do a little target practice.
I am gearing up to start a new painting this week for a friend. It's my last painting I'm doing for free (for a while anyway). I have a commission coming up and I'm excited to cross over into the world of commerce. It's humbling and scary and exciting all rolled into one. I think I'm ready for the challenge, as long as that challenge is somewhere near my comfort zone. At any rate, I have a hopeful heart as I start the week. It sure is lovely,anyway, looking out my window and taking in all of the beautiful fall colors. Here are a couple of snapshots from the weekend.
Have a great week!
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
