Big Changes

For the first time in my adult life I am unemployed. As of 5:00 p.m. Friday I am officially out of a job. I'm taking this week to regroup, organize our finances and figure out just what the hell I want to do next.

I'm so excited for the Fall TV that all my beloved shows have premiered again I'm getting in some serious crafting time. I love to watch marathons of CSI, NCIS, How I Met Your Mother and Glee on the weekends at my computer with my headphones on just crafting away.

This weekend I got out my beads and made a couple new bracelets.

I can never have enough beaded bracelets:)

And I'm almost to the end of Season 4 on Dexter....I'll be so sad when I have to wait forever for Season 5 to come out on DVD. I really can't stand John Lithgow....I don't think he's funny at ALL but he is doing an excellent job as the Trinity killer.

What's That I See?

You know it's Fall in New Mexico when you smell green chile roasting and you see hot air balloons in the air. The Balloon Fiesta every October is one of my all time favorite events....but Hubby is not a fan....he's not that into crowds. So the last several years my brother Chad has come in to town and we've spent time at the Fiesta with him. This year he surprised Miss S again - we had told her he wasn't going to make it this year. He snuck in to the house and woke her up at 5:00 a.m. the morning we went to the Fiesta.

There could not have been a more perfect day for us to have gone. There has been years when you have to dress in parkas it's been so cold but this year we only took sweatshirts. Some years the wind blows too hard and the balloons can't go up - there was barely a breeze this year so ALL the balloons got to go up.

Chad took these pictures and he is one damn good photographer.

Pumpkin Patch

Miss S and I went to the Pumpkin Patch last week (our little annual tradition)....the weather was perfect.

We played, ate and took a wagon ride out to the field to pick our pumpkins.

These baby goats kept nuzzling up to the fence...I want a baby goat SO bad!!

And this guy cracked me up...say cheese:)

I Made It Monday

Why hello there my poor neglected little blog. Life has gotten exponentially busy again and blogging has been at the bottom of my priority list.
Oh well!! I blog because I love it and I blog when I have something to I guess I haven't had a lot to say lately:)

I had the day off for Columbus Day and I took advantage of having a nice quiet house ALL to myself while Hubby was at work and Miss s was at school and finally finished Miss S's Twilight Quilt!! Holy cow I love the polka dot I used for the binding.

Isn't it beautiful?!?!
