Feeling Fall at last!

At last the rain has gone away and we are now feeling some nice cool temps. Fall is one of my favorite times of year. Its a time of change. A time where I feel I can start to slow down some and rest. I just Love the beautiful colors fo Fall too. I am sure most people feel this way.
I have been busy doing lots of artsy stuff. I hope to be able to share some of it this week.
I hope every one had a great week-end. And I hope you have a great week ahead!

Week-end Fun and pretty sunsets.

The picture above was from last night's sunset. Its not so great as I took it with my cell phone. I took some better pics with my cameras too but I am at work and can't load them from here. The sky was breathtaking. We had just had about an hours worth of storms. We have had 8 inches of rain in the past week and a half. The norm for us in September is usually 2 inches, if that. And we are suppose to have more rain this week too. Also it is very humid here and it sure doesn't feel like Fall. I am so ready for cooler temps and being able to open my windows. The heat isn't bad right now its the darn humidity that makes so uncomfortable.
But anyhoo,,,I did have a wonderful week-end, except I wasn't happy yesterday when my Football team, the Titans lost to the Texans,,not good.
On Saturday, my dear sweet friend, Rosemary, came over to play artsy stuff with Mom and I.

We had so much fun. She brought so many goodies to eat,,some yummy Mexican layered dip, and some heavenly Chex mix(very addicting). She also brought some paper mache pumpkins that we painted and then used some amazing wax that she brought to antique them with. She gave me a can of it and I played with it some yesterday morning. I promise to post some pics of our fun this week and all the fun things we made. She also brought me some charms that she had made and I LOVE them!!! Thanks Sweet Rosie! And we promised that we are getting together at least once a month from now, thats not a hard promise to make. We have to much fun when we get together!
I hope every one had a wonderful week-end and I hope you have a Great Week ahead.

Wednesday's Art

Yes, I actually have been working on some Art lately. I am still trying my hand at doing some drawing. I really enjoy using markers and water color pencils and crayons. I am also working on a Altered Board book for a swap I am in too. Almost finished with it and hope to post pics of it in a few days. But here are a few pics that I have completed.

I have also been working on my Journals some too. I will try to post some of them too.
I hope every one has had a great hump day! I LOVE hump days as it means Friday is right around the corner!

A tree filled week-end.

Yes we had an exciting week-end in our neighborhood. My brother(above) rented a boom lift for the week-end and most all of the neighbors needed trees cut down and trimmed. It was so cool how we all joined in together, even the kids, and helped each other cut trees. It was like being back in the old days when every one came together for barn raisings. Now our street is lined with tree limbs for the city chipper truck to come and pick up for mulch. Here's a few more pics of the tree cutting adventure.
Thats my silly hub up in the lift, you know the guys had fun with this big toy!
Tree limbs trimmed in the front of my house. Now I get a little more light into the Art room too. I hope every one is doing ok and had a great week-end. I will try to post some artsy stuff sometime this week.

Fun Labor Day Holiday

My fun started on Thursday afternoon. My friend, Ginny and I headed downtown to the Titan's stadium to do a little tailgating before the game. Some friends of hers bought a old school bus and really Titanized it.

This friendly guy was the greeter and would do a little jig when any one walked by the bus!

And check out the spread of food they had! Titan's fans definetly know how to Tailgate!

It was a great game too as the Titans won! It was a beautiful night with the moon being almost full too!
The next day we started out on our trip to "Land Between the Lakes". It was a beautiful day and we took the back roads all the way there. Our first stop was to check out the Bison prairie.

After that we rode around the park. Its really beautiful there and completely out in the wilderness. I will post more of my trip tomorrow or sometime this week. We went to tour a Homeplace that is a replica of how settlers lived in the 1850s. It was so neat.
I hope every one has had a wonderful Labor Day week-end!

Going to Paris!

Yes, thats right. I am going to Paris on Friday! But its Paris, Tennessee! Ha!

They do have a small little Effiel tower there. And its the home of the World's Biggest Catfish fry! But I am not going to the Catfish fry. I am going with one of my bestfriends and we are spending friday night in Paris and then going up to Land Between the Lakes. Its a very pretty area in Kentucky between the Tennessee River and the Cumberland River. Lots of trials and a Buffalo and Bison farm. A old homestead that you can go see where the people are dressed like the old days and they do the chores the old way. There is a Nature Center, planetarium, and just a really nice place to visit.
I am just glad to be going some place and getting out of town even if its just 1 night and 2 days.
And its not too far from us either so not that much travel time. I plan on taking alot of pics.
And, tomorrow night my friend and I are going to see my Fave Football team, the Titans, play a pre-season game. They are playing Greenbay Packers!
So, finally I get to have a fun week-end for a change! I hope every one is having a great week so far! To my friends in Cali,,thinking about you all and hoping the fires die out soon!
