I am pretty sure that every year once October arrives my world starts moving at warp speed until the first of January. This year is obviously no different. We have had a whirlwind weekend which included making balls (pattern at Grand Revival Designs ) for a special birthday boy and one for my own special boy who couldn't live without one of his own;
the first of many visits to the farm and the pumpkin patch;
climbing the big straw mountain (not the least bit scary this year), and getting a new hair do;
the birthday party for the birthday boy (not Jack! we have 2 weeks to go), with big pinata fun;
decorating the front porch (never mind the somewhat ugly rental house or the kid crap everywhere, lol);
and Jack's first real bicycle.
Which he loves. And he fell off trying to turn a corner and busted his lip open and gave me a heart attack. (And yes, he needs a new helmet to fit his large noggin. But there was no keeping him off the bike while we looked for a helmet.)
Plus there has been forward progress on our own big upcoming carnival party (still much to do though), I finally thrifted a cute Halloween costume this year (not as good as the owl I made last year, but Jack is pretty non-committal on the costume front this year) and I have isolated the cat offender. (Not an easy job with three cats.) That means there is a vet visit in our future this week, and we need apples from the farm for the carnival, and we are going to have a special little baby visitor a few days this week. (Yipppeeeee! She is a sweet little thing.)
Man, are we exhausted yet?
Ah well, the cat has just thrown up, I suppose I don't have time to be exhausted yet. LOL Maybe when I am 80? :-)
(I haven't forgotten that last egg money treasure. Really. And I am positively ITCHING to make something I have just seen on Flickr. Back with good stuff soon I hope.)
