Sitting here relaxing. It's Sunday evening and another weekend is almost over. As usual the weekend flew by, but at least this week at school should be more "normal" since spirit week is over. However it is the last full week before quarter exams which means I need to push those kids so we can finish up the work needed for exams.
Well, at least I will try. :)
Yesterday I met my daughter, and we went to visit my mom. She recently turned 88 and we went to have a little birthday celebration visit.
Mom commented how the 3 of us have the same smiles. And that we do.
On the way home we did some shopping. Next weekend is the hubby's birthday and we went on an expedition to find him a couple of gifts. We had success too!
Today was another beautiful day when I took the dogs out for our morning walk. I also enjoyed the colors of fall.
And I noticed this tree had been cut by a beaver. That might be the dam to the right, and next walk I am going to take a better look. I've walked by this little swamp many times and never noticed the tree (maybe the leaves blocked it). I wonder if it's recently been gnawed down.
And after a very long and productive play time with paints and some coasters, I relaxed with my latest book and this book of cookies.
Oh yes, they are back! Last year I devoured about 5 boxes over the course of the fall pumpkin cookie season. I ate way too many out of this box too.
And I did finish up a tag I started for Tag Tuesday. The latest challenge is Autumn/Halloween.
I am all about Halloween art lately. I think it's the one time of year I can let go and just let the little bit of dark side out. ( You may have figured out I am NOT a dark person. My dark side art isn't even very dark if you haven't noticed.)
So the weekend is ending with the Outlander tv show overlapping with the Patriots football game. Such conflicts mean there is only one outcome. Seeing the hubby is a huge football fan and also has become a Outlander fan, (but not as big a fan as he for football), Outlander will have to be recorded and wait until tomorrow night.
Sigh The reunion of Claire and Jaime will have to wait for me.
Happy new week everyone. Hope you had a fantastic weekend.
