As usual I sat out on the porch this morning watching little man as he waited for the bus. The fog was low and heavy across the street where the countryside dips into a valley. There are a few pluses to living on a hill, and the view is one of them. Being a lightening magnet is not one of the positives, though. LOL. The tree cut up in the front yard is proof there is a negative side to the new house. Oh well. Still wouldn't trade it for another.
This weekend went by quickly, which can be good and bad. We were able to get some cleaning done so I won't have as much to do this week. I have two service appointments for the house this week and a doctor appointment in the city. So it's looking to be a busy week. But the good about it being Monday? The guys are out of the house and it's quiet. My plans today are to try to root around in the last remaining unpacked boxes and find my rolling pin. I found a yummy recipe for sugar cookies and want to start experimenting with icing decorations. Little man has a fall party Friday and I'll make Halloween cake pops. I bought a plastic black witch's cauldron and spiderweb material. Hopefully my fingers will work so I can mold spooky characters and I'll put them on sticks. I plan to lay foam in the bottom of the cauldron with the spiderweb on top to look like smoke. If I can get it to work I'll upload pictures before I take it to the school.
Off to work on critiques and getting my partial request ready to mail. Just a few tweaks and it's ready to go. And yes...I am getting a little nervous. The 3-4 month wait will be unbearable but I have plenty of projects to keep me busy. Have a wonderful and productive Monday, my friends!
