So I woke up with a surprise this morning- conjugativitis in my right eye. Stayed home- which I must say I enjoyed being home but wasn't planning on this and should have been to work. Need to take antibiotics...hopefully by tomorrow its better and I'm back to work, bookclub. My left shouldler is killing me tonight too-like a major crick- but enough being a hyperchondriac.
Did work on my Halloween book today some- and I KNOW- I need to take some photos. Did go out and took some photos in the yard today...fall is coming on so quickly. Tomorrow is October-in a way finally-though I'm not in any rush for winter. But September has been going on forever.
I know, life is short...and I shouldn't rush it by...

Two photos I borrowed from Tim Holtz's blog. Took this festive window class this morning at Absolutely Everything this morning- it was GREAT! Learned all about painting on transparencies with alcohol inks. Tim is a great teacher and this class was packed- all 50 of us. And out of 50 people-from Texas, Montana, Florida, Maryland...I sat next to a woman from the next town here in NH-she lives in Alton. Small world.
Got a cool bag with the top logo on it...love it! Need to photograph my book- need to put a few more things on my pages to finish it-but it is great! was a nice way to spend a rainy Saturday morning.

A few more photos from yesterday. Today was sunny then gray-and its Sunday. Putzing, playing, getting myself ready for another week of work- busy one too. Parent night/open house is Wednesday-that will be a late night- drawing tomorrow, Tim Holtz class Saturday morning, Katie having a few tests and her spirit week and her homecoming Dance-not to even mention Dave's week.
Tomorrow is the first day of fall, so these photos kind of celebrate that. I lvoe fall, but am not ready for the on-coming winter at all. But what can you do? Too bad I can't go to Florida for the winter but I'd most likely be bored and it isn't happening anyhow-but London and Paris in Feb! Something good to look forward to.

Had drawing on Monday night-did a really sexy picture of 2 people-sexier than the photo I drew- as Dawn my teacher said- I gave the drawing some gestault. Had Katie's open house Thursday night (went alone as Dave was out of town) and got to meet her teachers- which is always a fun thing to do- especially when I don't have to be the teacher and on. Got my haircut Tuesday after school, did a little bit of scrapping...napping...getting up at 5 a.m. is tough but I must say Katie driving herself and us not having to rush out to the bus makes a HUGE difference in my life.
Today I made a bunch of cards-this is a busy time of year coming up with birthdays, etc. Also made a few tiles, want to try putting some of them on a mini artquilt, not sure if it'll work but have to do a few with pre-punched sewing holes, if it works, I'll make more. If not, no big loss. Enjoyed having an art day though...really needed it. I need to do art every day, and I can skip a day, but...too many and I start going crazy. I did go to my favorite craft store FRiday after school, which was a blast, got a couple of Christmas stamps and the new Ali Edwards Mini album book and the love Elsie recipe cards. Not much else, was actually a low spending trip. I did sign up for another clay class in October- this is a silver metal clay class-have been curious about that material and now I'll get to check it it.
Oh yes, and you're asking about the photo I took off the internet...February vacation, we'll be in Paris for a good chunk of the week. Made our hotel reservations this past week, and made the flight over Labor Day- we'll be flying into London, cheaper tickets, but I wanted to take the train to Paris-through the chunnel, and that's what we're going to do. Can't wait. Been watching some travel shows on Paris-like I said- Can't wait.

I have been bugging myself about my year long project which was to send out 1 item a month. So I was going to make an apron for Apronology by Somerset Studio- which needs to be there in a week, even got some remnant fabric at the Street Fair last month just for this project-and yet, I have made nothing. I was going back and forth with ideas, of which I had some, but then I realized I was forcing it. You know, it wasn't really inspiring me and even though it would be good for me to make something that's not on the rush list...there's also the point that maybe I'm not inspired enough to do it. And its ok not to do it. Its ok to skip a month...instead of pressuring myself and then avoiding it...its not like I'm getting paid...so...
Anyhow- enough for my brain batting around and issue.

This is how beautiful the weather was this Labor Day weekend. Love it- had 4 days off after the first week back to school (for me-Katie goes back tomorrow-she's sooo nervous which was how I was last week). Thursday Katie and I went to Kittery Outlets shopping after I got done with school- Friday I worked around the house and got my skylight glass replaces (oh, it is sooo nice to have not frosted,icky window glass), my good friend Ina came for breakfast Saturday on her quick trip north (she lives in NC), and then I hung out on the couch and read my latest book-The Goegraphy of Bliss by Eric Weiner which I am enjoying. Yesterday was clean up at Dave's mom's place on Rust Pond- which we finished today, while doing some vacation checking and reading...of it was a great weekend overall.
