Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Fall has a very special meaning to me. When I was a kid, it was amazing to learn about the different seasons, and how plants change. I lived to far down south to see the beautiful fall colors. The only thing we got was a bunch of leaves to clean up during winter, and that's it. Later on I moved up north, and lo and behold:
Fall!
It even invaded the canals. Sometimes I wonder how much someone pays for native plants, when they can be outright weeds. Pretty weeds though, which can make all of the difference.
This cypress tree started to change a couple weeks ago. I'm really surprised how long it's taking, because other tees further south look like they're already dead. 
It was funny moving to where I am now, because this was the first tree seeing tree's change in real life. Maybe that's why there so special to me.
 The cypress tree changing a little bit further.
Took a picture before my mother ultimately jump kicks it. She has a thing for kicking mushrooms, mostly because there not the friendliest of fugues.

Look what came in the mail yesterday.
My Purse Making Kit from American Purse Supplies! It came super fast to. Good thing too because I was starting to get antsy. I prefer not being antsy, especially when a tedious essay is involved.
I was really shocked about the fabric, and how much I liked it. Pink looks fabulous on me, but it's a love hate relationship. If pink would act more like this, then things would be a lot better.
Silk Brocade
Dupioni Silk
Look how nice everything is!
Firm Interfacing
The interfacing even comes in precut pieces. I was not expecting that.
It's going to be a fun weekend.

Update: Purse Frame Kit Giveaway

I WON

Came home from school and found out, and literally jumped up and down almost screaming my head off. I never win anything. If I do, the stars are lined up, or it was rigged. Rigging is fine as long as it was in my favor, but this time I actually won WON.

........Just kidding about the rigging.

Anyway, I'm so happy right now. Things are going my way, my health is getting better, and I'm actually staying on my Candida Diet pretty darn well if I say so myself. It's a big thing, since I am genetically disposition to be addicted to potatoes, chocolate, or sugar.

Thank you Lord for all of this. Now time to go off and start running around like a headless chicken again.
