october 2008pumpkin done click for larger image
The show was very good considering the weather was windy and with a little snow.
We came home with colds, which worked out well considering Roy had a cold already.
Today I hope to carve the pumpkin with Quinton for halloween and I have to pull out the tub to put candies in.
don't know if he will dress up for halloween because it usually is a
battle to just put cloths on, but grandma is going to be here to take
him just in case.

Hope to see you there.
the inlaws came over for supper at our house and I am not a person that
does entertaining of any kind. Having a gathering of people in my
house actually scares the pants off of me. Real good, I know, for
someone that makes and sells beads and jewelry. Anyways the supper
went well and they got to cuddle Ronan while they were here. My
mother in law brought this pumpkin angel food cake which was really
good and I am not an angel good cake person. She told me that she will
give me the recipe and maybe I will post it here if anyone is
Tomorrow they will watch the boys for a couple of hours so that I can torch.
I got in to the bead show happening on saturday the 25th in Edmonton.
I will have to find the info and will post it as soon as I do find it.
weekend at the farm was good but fast. Saturday we ran to the city to
the Mac store to see about getting the letter"d" to work on my
computer. It happens that there was a small seedbead stuck under it.
Roy got me to buy a key board cover to hopefully prevent the problem
ever happening again. The good thing is, is I did not have to pay for
the tech to fix it and Roy got to shop at the store.
supper with all the family and they totally fond over Ronan and Quinton
was not that bothered because there were toys to play with, puppies to
push around and who ever wasn't with Ronan spent some time with him.
I did not get any pictures of anyone holding Ronan, like I did with
Quinton and like a dork, I did not realize it until we were coming
home. Next time.
My days of having a nap in the morning and
sometime during the day are over, Roy started a new job on Tuesday and
now I have to be up for Quinton. Which would not be so bad but last
night Ronan was up most of the night and I think I only got 4 hours of
sleep and some of that was only in half hour stretches. I will adjust
in a couple of days, I hope.
I have a craft show on the 1st and
it is going to be a long day. But now I have to make time to do either
beads or jewelry before that.
This is the Canadian thanksgiving weekend and it will be interesting.
is supper with my family and it is also my parents anniversary, if I
guess right they have been married over 45 years now, WOW.
is looking forward to going to the farm because my sister has this box
of toy tractors and he has a catalog he wants to match the toys with
And of course the family wants to see the new kid, who is totally a daddy's boy because he likes to lie on daddy's chest.
I hope everyone has a good weekend.
we went on a short trip and I turn around to check on the boys and I
busted Quinton copying a face Ronan makes. I asked him if he was
copying Ronan and he says "no" and keeps making the pouty(fish)lips he
was doing it on his own.
Artzee still does not work and I don't
know why and my letter "d" still is not working well. So if I have
missed it somewhere, forgive me.
several hot days that we had, we woke up to rain. I guess I should
have put those leaves that I raked yesterday in bags to be composted.
found some beads the other day that I hope Ronan and Quinton will give
me time to take pictures of. And I have 3 craft shows in the area that
I will be doing november and december so far. I don't want to do too
many because Ronan is so new and I don't know his eating habits yet but
I want to try to do a few so that I feel like I have done something
The Lampworking guild I am in is doing a show at the end
of October but I was in labour when the sign up sheet got emailed out,
so I am not doing that one.
Artzee website is messed up right now and I don't know why.
has been challenging these past couple of days and I am pretty well
running on fumes. Last night I actually got to sleep for 2 hours
straight and that is why I am on the computer today, because I feel
The weather here has been beautiful, we are having +20 and
more Celius weather. And I even have taken the kids out, I even made
Roy take Quinton to hang out outside.
I can't believe it is
October already. I think I have all the halloween treats ready. I
bought enough for 200 kids, but I may buy extra just in case. Last
year we had over 150 kids come to our door and I gave cans of pop,
whatever candy I had in the house and then juice boxes at the end of
the night. This year I have some pop (because it wasn't on sale very
much), kool-aid juice boxes, and playdough.
