Ten photos: Day 5


I can’t believe I missed a day of blogging yesterday!  I was busy shopping in Dallas and, that’s it, I got busy shopping:)  Fall weather is definitely upon us here now, it’s falling into the 60’s and the leaves have turned their colors.  I’m really loving it!  Being from Wisconsin but living in the south for the last almost 5 years I’m still getting used to the seasons here; they are much harder to decipher but I do love the changes it brings.  Here are 10 photos about fall (yep, more leaves but they are so pretty in B&W don’t you think?)

Ten photos: Day 4


Today I’m super excited because my mom#2 is in Dallas on business! We’re going to meet for lunch and shop around for a couple hours; the bff is coming along too:)  I haven’t seen my mom#2 since our wedding in June so I’m off to get ready!  Happy Wednesday ya’ll! Enjoy these photos I took of some pretty leaves I gathered on my walk, I kinda like them all;)

Fall Goals



Since I became unemployed for the first time in 4 years almost 4 months ago I was mostly concerned about what do I do next and it was very anxiety provoking.  Now I’m just learning to enjoy the moment and what I’m doing now and if the right job comes along then yeah for me!

I do need to set some goals however because that really helps keep my anxiety at bay; otherwise I’ll have a million things I feel like I need to get done and it keeps me up at night.  So, I made a short list for now of what I want to accomplish by January 1st, 2013.  Here they are:

1. Write and post at least once on my blog daily.

2. Finish reading 3 books (I have a stack of like 5 books I’m currently reading and more stacks around the house to start).

3. Complete 5 sewing projects; that’s about one per week.

4. Learn some photoshop stuff like I don’t know, how to edit.

5. mmm, this is hard really, oh yeah, plan a nice birthday dinner or outing for my hubs

6. Finish my first crocheted blanket

7. Eat more squash

8. Try to stop chewing my nails, like at least try

9. Finish a painting

10. I can do this, okay # ten is to save some money, not a lot but some.

Whew. That’s my list for now.

What are your fall goals?  They’re fun to think about so go ahead!
