Took Some Time...

The next few weeks (okay, the next month) is going to be insane...
Total craziness...
I might be able to catch some photos throughout it and do my normal back dating to show you my craziness... 
Maybe the end of November...

So, MBB and I took a few days off this weekend - mainly to celebrate our anniversary.
I also needed a few days to recharge and get some stuff done around the house in prep for the craziness around the corner.

I am behind on a few projects that I would like to get done before I attempt anything for Christmas...
And since I have some ideas of things to do for Christmas...
I took some time in the craft room today and started working on three different projects...

In all honesty, it will probably be the end of November before I can work on them again.  :(

Here's a sneak peak: 

Namaste.

Ride the Ducks


Even though I have lived in Cincinnati/Cincinnati-area for more than half of my life, I decided (along with MBB, MaBell and the grandbabies) to be a tourist and Ride the Ducks...

The grandbabies loved riding on the "wawer" and the adults learned some fascinating facts too.

And we even got to see a real duck too...

The only downside - it was a rainy, gloomy day...  
May have to go back and ride again on a sunny day.

Namaste.

Wool Fest

The one thing you can always count on:  the Wool Fest the first weekend in October.
Lots of people travel for it...
Lots of people "return home" for it...
Lots of locals love it...

Not my husband.
I lived in Kentucky for years before I made it there and only then because of some fundraising work...And yes, I was solo.

Now, we have a grandbaby who loves cows, MBB is suddenly willing to go to the Wool Fest.
(You can tell where I rank on the totem pole with him!)

There were baby goats and calves and goats who wanted all of the attention.
I must say that the petting zoo in 2013 was amazing.
The petting zoo in 2014 - sorely lacking.
I'm hoping that it improves for next year!




Namaste.

Imaginations...

In this day and age, I have started worrying about the future generations' imaginations.
It seems like most of them are glued to electronic screens / games...

This lessened my worry, at least about my grandbaby, and made me laugh at the same time.

We were helping some friends work on a house that they just bought...
When my grandbaby (yes, I need to come up with nicknames for them on here!) decided that a plastic drop clothe was really a superhero cape.  He ran around with it and had a ball...

Unfortunately, the only non-blurry picture (where you can't see his face) happens to be when he took a break in front of the TV...

No worries, he was back up showing off his cape in no time!


Namaste.

Prettiness

Full disclosure:  I still don't like the blogger app.  I still have a ton of posts in draft mode who are waiting on me to get to my home laptop to post...
Yes, I am backdating a lot of posts tonight!

I've been traveling a lot for work...
I go to a lot of events...
I see a lot of decorations, I've posted a few pictures before...
And most of the time, they are same ole, same ole.

Occasionally, I am impressed with the decorations...
This was one of those days...


Namaste.

Edited

A few of you who use a blog reader may have caught the post that was up for about 10 minutes (was actually this post that I edited a few times)...
Then I decided that 10 minutes was enough and I took it down.

I was (am depending on the day) in a funk and I got some thoughts off of my chest.
I expect that the funk will come and go, especially in the next month or so.

My schedule is unbelievable and when I get that busy/stressed/trying to find time to sleep, I lose my ability to let things role off of my back.  And with my friends/family lately, the delete key is highly needed!

Luckily, I still have a delete key.
And MBB.

A Tractor and Tool Themed Birthday Party

We hosted a 2nd Birthday Party for our grandbaby who is heads over heels for Tractors, Cows and Tools.  We took two of those to make a party theme for his mommy's side of the family (the other was the theme for his daddy's side of the family).  With families as big as ours, our grandbabies are blessed with two parties!

Let me just say that Tractors and Tools are not so easy...
But I got creative...






And he had a small green tractor on his mini-cake and tools on his cupcakes.

Wow... Next theme - we are going to the store first to see what supplies exist!

Namaste.

One of those...

Days...
Weeks...
Hell,  I could say months at this point.

Who am I kidding -
I really want to say I give up.
But I can't.
But I can dream right?

In a weird Artsy way.

(Just tilt your head to the left since Blogger won't let me rotate it)
