fall weekend

a memory of Fall 2008

So glad it's the weekend. Feeling pretty good today. Optimistic. So good in fact I cleaned my kitchen and put in two loads of laundery. Feels good to do that. Looking forward to my Girl's Night tonight at a friend's house. Lit my Pumpkin Spice candle today...reminds me of all I love about fall. Now to enjoy another cup of coffee and wait to switch over the laundrey. Still haven't done a layout with my new kit stuff...hoping this weekend? But it's looking like a busier one tonight and then gonna try and make it to Knitting Circle tomorrow it might not be in the cards! We'll see...

Happy Saturday!

fall day


I have not been a good bloger in the last few months. Few posts. No layouts. Really very few projects. Blah! That is not good. I guess I have been focused on other things aside from my art stuff. That isn't entirely terrible but I do want to try and do some this weekend. I have been spending time with Cary which is wonderful but also being a worrier about things I don't need to allow to consume my mind and time.

A fall weekend! At least today will be. Hoping for some apple picking and apple pie. And tomorrow I want to make a roast beef dinner. My mom always did that growing up for Sunday Dinner. I love the smell cooking for hours.
I came home from work tired last night. Cary had cleaned the bathroom, vacuumed, mopped the floors and took out the trash. What a guy! I am lucky.

Here's to hoping I have some cards or a layout to post later this weekend. I am dying to use my Cocoa Daisy kit goodies!

Happy Saturday!

weekend laziness

Bald Eagle at the Zoo

Just having a lazy Sunday morning at home. Had so much fun outlet shopping with my mom, brother and sister yesterday. Got some nice work clothes and a great Nine West bag. So great when you have a "vision" in mind and you find it in your price range!

Figuring out what to do with this day...having a beautiful sunny, cool late summer day here. Sat outside this morning for a bit with my book and coffee. Last night Cary and I were able to see the Labor Day fireworks from our apartment's balcony! Front row seats. Later today I'm hoping to finish up a shawl I knitted...need to weave in the ends and block it out. I'm excited about it. Need to get working on the rest of the baby sweater for my cousin too.

So much I want to do with my weekend off but also wanting to just be lazy!

Happy Sunday!
