This and That

Hope everyone had a fun weekend. The DH and I did a bit of this and that. Saturday morning he mentioned that there was a free movie at the local art theater so we had fun seeing...


(Don't you just love to take pictures of the movie screen?)

Since I was more of a Three Stooges fan, I had never seen this film and to see it on the big screen was actually a lot of fun.

From there we went to a craft show, where there were lots of different items to be seen and purchased.

From jewelry...

(By the way, I asked permission from each vendor before taking these shots)

...to photography

with lots of stuff in between. I would have taken more pictures, but my battery conked out after three shots. I didn't find anything that really "spoke" to me, and my darling hubby was patient and even pointed out some really nice jewelry and other things.

There was another Fall festival that we were going to check out, but it got a bit overcast and I was concerned that it might rain, so we called it a day.

My DH had a birthday Sunday and wanted a cake, so we tossed the diets out the windows and enjoyed some devils food cake with chocolate icing.

Other than that, we have had a fairly quiet weekend. I did start a new project. Sort of an autobiography with cartoon like drawings and journaling. So far I'm up to age 5. Hmmm, this may take a while.

Between dental appointments, hair cuts and getting ready for vacation, my blog posting may become a bit sporadic. Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere for long. This little blog is here to stay. I know that those of you who care, will put up with my little rants and raves, and I'm certain we can all stay positive through the upcoming winter months.

Some of my friends crave the sunshine and dread the overcast days. For some, winter is a time of reflection. If you do choose to hunker in during the cooler months and contemplate life, I wish you happy thoughts and sound solutions and loving friends to help you through any tough times you experience.

We are all in this together, so surround yourselves with those that will lift you up. Don't let anyone think they can tear you down, or make you feel inferior. As we know, folks that do this usually have unresolved issues. Sometimes the only way to change a situation, is to change your reaction to that situation. I know it works for me.

Enjoy your week and do something fun and artsy.

First of all, you have a great talent for icing a cake, that looks delicious enough to gain a pound for!!!
Looks like you had a wonderful weekend! We spent a lot of time by the fireplace and had cuddle time. We went out and had a nice dinner. I am glad you two share your time together and enjoy each other like my husband and I do. It makes for such a fulfilling life. I am so happy for you both.

Hi Susan, seems like you and hubby had a great time. I love spending time with my hubby. And yes people could be happy if they would only let their selves be happy. Some people just like turmoil. Hugs***Renea

You're so right--we do need to surround ourselves with those who lift us up! It's part of the reason I visit your blog!

What fun you had. I love those old movies--and craft/art shows are heaven!

I'm tryin' here. I haven't seen the sun for a week and the weatherman is calling our weather bleak! It's been rain, rain and more rain. Storms, floods, outages, I'm ready to buy a SAD light. Great post girl, I needed it.

Have a great day!
