I had a seriously great weekend that included a school party, a bonfire, a football game and a color run. And, of course, men in tutus. That was my favorite part!
My group of friends is always full of people willing to be silly, which works for me because I love laughing. Next year I will be making much bigger tutus. I did find in making them that tulle does not go a long way.
My group of girls who are making the Little House blocks made pumpkin blocks at our last class. They are all far enough along that they were able to listen to the instructions and go for it on their own. And they are looking forward to making more quilt blocks. Kids are so eager to learn and happy to do new things. Their lack of fear of failure is a big plus too. Reminds me that I need to adopt a bit more of that attitude!
This week looks to be good and busy! I hope your Monday is wonderful!
This is one of those weeks in which I am very happy to greet my weekend!
It's not that it was a bad week, but just a week full of things to deal with. And I am little bit tired.
My hope is to fit a little bit of quilting in.
Tonight is dinner at a friend's house. She is a great cook, so I am looking forward to it. Plus she is a gem of a friend!
Tomorrow I am going to the Coffin Races in Manitou Springs. Never been, but I have always been curious. Hopefully I will have some fun pictures for you on Monday.
Sunday is the usual: church and football.
It's funny, because this football thing is getting addictive! A friend that I watch football with texted me the other night that she watching Sports Center and she relayed a Peyton Manning story to me that they were reporting. We had to crack up because a year ago we knew absolutely nothing about football, except that there are a lot of great snack recipes to make while you watch it! Now I have a lovely and fun group of friends that I get with on most weekends and we scream at the TV and eat those great snacks. Life just keeps getting better!
This weekend my daughter and I drove up to see the changing leaves, but found that they weren't quite turned enough to suit my liking. But we did have a great time and I shot a few pictures.
This gal is a hard one to photograph (just like me when I was her age!). I have to either surprise her or take one when she isn't looking.
Next weekend should be ideal for the aspens. So, a little trip is on the calendar once again. This is one of most beautiful times of the year here in Colorado. And with all of the rain this summer, the colors should be great.
The last several years have been pretty, but drought conditions have limited the amount of reds and oranges in the trees. So excited to see the blaze of color this time!
The leaves are turning, so that means I will be out in the mountains with my camera this weekend! Fall leaves are just about my favorite thing to photograph simply because they are so colorful! And I love how the light plays with the fall colors!
