Autumn is my favorite time of year and today we welcome it.

I love the crisp air. Wearing sweaters and jeans. Eating apples,watching the leaves turn brilliant colors. Hearing the geese honk as they fly overhead. Football and racing on the weekends.Fall festivals and getting ready for the holidays.

Now, if only the weather here in upstate SC would get the message. It's rainy(to the pointing of flooding in some areas),the air is very warm and humid feels more like summer instead of the first of fall.

I am getting in to the crafting mode more making holiday items and working on a Halloween vest for my husband if it turns out ok I will post pictures.

Here's hoping for cooler,drier air and some sunshine to chase away the blahs.

Doctor's Visit

I hate going to the doctor!!
I have to go in every 3 months for blood work and check. The nurse that always takes me back is so unfriendly. She barely speaks. She nearly pinches my arm off taking my blood pressure. She acts like it is a total inconvenience for me to be there. It's not like its a place I want to be,but I am paying them for a service it would be nice to get answers to my questions without feeling like I was holding her up.
I would think she was just having a bad day but she is always like this. I am not sure if I should complain and if I did who to complain to.
Oh well, I have lost 6 pounds since my visit 3 months ago and to me this was a great accomplishment and my blood pressure was only slightly elevated . (I contribute that to the nurse making me mad.)
Thanks for letting me vent. Maybe it lowered my blood pressure. LOL

Fall is in the Air

Finally,fall is in the air. I love this time of year. cooler weather,brilliant colors in nature,football,and preparing for the holidays.
We are not planning to do anything large for the holidays this year. Time to let the kids start making their own traditions. But I will be decorating for Halloween,Thanksgiving , and Christmas. I look all the colors that flow for these holidays.
I am also getting busy making new items for my Etsy shop. Sometimes getting the idea out of my head and into the finished product can be challenging. I just finished and listed a Halloween wreath that was stuck in my head so vividly, but so different for me it is totally black except for some silver glitter and bony skeletons. It turned out almost like it was in my head. I am happy with it.
I have more ideas I am working on but they are more colorful.
I would loved to hear your feedback on this latest creation.
