Witches Oh My!!


If you've never been to Gardner Village this time of year, you are seriously missing out. Gaelynn and I decided to go to Archibalds for dinner ( 1 hour wait for 2) and then to walk around and see the witches and of course end up in one of my favorite fabric stores Pine Needles. I have never been there when it has been so crazy but fun.

A mighty fine day!

Today was a great day!! Not only because it is Friday and my friend Aubrey's Birthday, but a day I found out I was getting a raise. I took a pretty big hit in the pocket book when I went from BLIC to DMBA last year and have been trying to figure out what I could do to make ends meat.
Today out of the blue our CEO told us we were getting raises to put us in line with industry standards. Now I have no idea what kind of raise it will be but even 50 cents an hour would be helpful. I would love more but am certainly not going to get my hopes up too high!.
Thank Bob!!

Y


My mother is making quilts for all the grandkids for christmas and she asked me to design this one for the son of the biggest "Y" fan I know. If you look close, they are footballs, basketballs, golf, and soccer balls. Even though they are having a losing season, his faith in "his" team never waivers. He may throw his hat at the TV and yell "come on" but he never waivers. Too bad not everyone has as much faith as he. I chalk it up to a rebuilding year and better things are to come.

Favorite time of year


So October begins my favorite time of year. The mountains are all aglow with the different colors of leaves, the apples are ripe for pickin, It's General Conference weekend, and the halloween candy is out. A couple of years ago, i went to New York to visit my bestest friend and her little family and while we were there, we went to an orchard and picked apples. It was in a little town I can't remember but if I were to live in New York, if I couldnt live in Dobbs Ferry, I would so live in this little town. So countrish!!
