I've reeeeally been enjoying the cool mornings and evenings, with the middle of the day still being pretty warm! Although it does make it hard to dress for work when I go at 7:00AM (amazing that I wake up that early, I know) and then have to be there all day long. But I make it work.

I made my second yarn wreath for Halloween. I have really been enjoying the googly eyes this year, and I wanted an excuse to use some on a project.

The image is kind of stinky - because of the blackberry phone...but here ya go. It's really simple, but that's how I like it. Usually when I try to go all out I end up hating it. So I go for simple because it always turns out great!

I wanted to add some letters to spell out "BOO" but the only letters I could find were giant. So I need to find some that will be a good size for the wreath. Then maybe I can add them.

Hopefully I can get some pictures of our Halloween "costumes" in a while. We still aren't quite sure what we are going to be. But we'll see what happens!

We also have yet to pick out some pumpkins - so hopefully that will come soon as well.

Have a ghoulish week!

Bali Hai

It's so cool to wake up to clouds almost in my backyard. All I could think of was the Bali Hai song because it looks kind of like that on the South Pacific movie. But the mountains peeking out of the clouds just looks sooo cool!

And I'm enjoying hearing the walls rumble a little bit while Steve is enjoying his new FREE surround sound system watching good ole Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade. I'm a sucker for Indy!

And not just the movie... ;)

Get reeeady!

That's my cool title... :)
And I kind of chose it because I know that my semester is about to explode with midterms and group projects starting!

It got REALLY cold REALLY fast out here, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. Although I think the weather people are "predicting" it to be in the 70s this week, so I'll take that. That is my favorite temperature. I hope it's enjoyable.

I have enjoyed being all snuggly with Steve and our 20,000 blankets - until he got strep a couple days there hasn't been much snuggling, even though I've been freezing my buns off! But it's been over 24 hours, and the doctor said he's not contagious anymore. But we went for 48 hours just be safe. So now we can snuggle. YAY

A couple weeks ago Steve went fishing with the men in his family and he had a blast! He was sad his brothers couldn't be there with him, but he was still glad to go be manly without me around. hehe.

I'm having another itch to be crafty again - I think it's because of my addiction to But I don't really have the time (or extra play money) to make the cool crafts that I want. Also, I'm going to start looking for a cheap sewing machine and start playing around. That should be an adventure.

I'm still waiting to hear about that staff position. I think someone said it should close this week. Soooo we'll see!

Have a good autumn-time!!!
