Have you been enjoying fall? I have definitely been enjoying the cooler temperatures and thunderstorms that have been hanging out around Kansas City. The season is changing from summer to fall and my life is moving along with that change as well. Life has decided to take a slower pace. Where is everyone these days? I know I have not been online nearly as much as I have in the past.
Here are some photos I took of the yard the last few days of September. I am amazed at how different the yard looks already just in that short time. It was really beautiful and sunny when I took these photos.
Here you can see the Papyrus grasses seeding. The weather has been cooler and the skies have been pretty gray. Hard to believe when looking at these sunny photos.
In this season of change I find myself having less days to work after the show when I had anticipated creating like a crazy woman preparing for Christmas. I have been rotating my work time with taking care of my sister that was put on bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy(She is due November 15th). So I'm just rolling with the changes and trying to be a little more kind to myself with crazy deadlines and production expectations. I got a chance to work on a small collection of fall beads that are currently listed in my Etsy shop.
I'm really happy with this collection of work. I really love the rich colors fall brings :) I had wanted to do more of a collection, but had to stop here. In the mean time I placed a small glass order to restock some colors. I should be getting that next week sometime :D
When I've been over at my sister's house we have been keeping things pretty low key. She was put on bed rest since her blood pressure was a bit high and the doctors worried she may have had the beginnings of preeclampsia. She mostly has to lay in bed or sit, but was allowed to go out if she rode an electric cart or was pushed in a wheel chair. Dad had invited the two of us out for lunch the other day and after we decided to stop at Target.
Lord help me! I had to go to the store with dad in the electric cart while I pushed Nina in the wheel chair. I can't believe how slow those motorized carts are. Yeesh. I could push Nina around faster than those motors go!
Ok so we had a little fun in the Halloween area. I made dad and Nina put on the silly foam hats and pose for a photo lol.
I also joined in the fun with these silly large foam glasses. Lol.
I have been lucky enough to be able to attend a lot of music events lately. I was pretty surprised and for these next electronic music events that are only a day apart!
I will be seeing Big Gigantic on Saturday in the arts district at a restaurant called Grinders. This is their last outdoor event before the winter. It will be a nice balmy 49 degrees that night! Dancefestopia all over again with the cold temps! At least we won't be on the riverfront this time ;)
I'm pretty stoked! Lots of great music to enjoy back to back!
That's pretty much what's been going on in my world in my internet absence. I hope to get to making some new beads next week. You can check in with me on Facebook for news ;)
See ya around!
