This Photo.


My friend, Stephanie, held a challenge at Studio Calico this past week. Of course, as usual I was pushing the deadline and finished shortly before it was due last night. It's a good thing the bonfire we were going to have last night was cancelled due to overwhelming tiredness. Yep...I have surrounded myself with old fuddy duddies. I was raring to go despite spending the day wandering around the apple orchard picking apples, raspberries and pumpkins. Well, maybe raring to go is an optimistic phrase. I was actually ready to plop down in a chair in front of a fire with a metal stick in hand and a marshmallow adhered to the end. That's not too raring. Anyway...perhaps next weekend. Back to the layout. The challenge was in regard to journaling - write something real and in your own writing. So real it is, because I only think I am all that only .04% of the time. I know gasp. Last night when I finished this I went through SC gallery and read other's submissions. I was so impressed. Some tackled very difficult and painful topics. I am so proud of them for getting their stories down on paper and then putting it out for all to see. My layout compared to theirs is fluff, but it's a start.
NO PUMPKINS TODAY
Today I was going to go pumpkin picking, but alas it is raining. I love rain and storms, so I am not too disappointed. I have an excuse not to be working on closing up the pool and cutting back my gardens. I can scrap, watch movies and bake Apple Crisp. Life is good...as always. Enjoy your Sunday!
