It was a a week, y'all! I'm already running behind on this new one. Take a peek!
To get out of the house on Sunday, we took Zoe for a walk at a local park and checked out the new disc golf course there. You can tell how excited she was about that (the walk, not the disc golf).
Since her picture turned out so well, I decided to capture Artemis' good side too.
I also made a little time to play in an art journal after some inspiration from The Ugly Art Club
Monday began beautifully as I decided to go for a morning walk and watch the sun rise.
I pretty much stayed home and worked on a few projects all day. In particular, I gathered papers and other bits for the giveaway I'll be having when I reach 2,000 YouTube subscribers on my channel
. I'd love it if you'd follow me there too!
On Tuesday, I ran my usual errands of grocery shopping and whatnot. The local farmer's market had out their impressive display of pumpkins. These are just a small portion of the pumpkins that run down the side of the whole building.
It was also our wedding anniversary, so Pat and I had a nice dinner out on the deck at The Little Whiskey
in Fairhope. It was a real treat!
On Wednesday, I worked on a variety of tasks. But the big event of the day was the four hours we spent in the evening painting the floor of the new building.
On Thursday, I headed to Mobile to visit with my mom before I did a little estate sale shopping. I really scored big! You'll have to watch my October Thrifty Haul to really see what I bought.
Friday morning, I treated myself to some yummy cheese grits topped with (PRO TIP) leftover taco toppings and a fresh fried egg. So good!
That evening, we got to enjoy seeing the Spin Doctors
at a local outdoor venue. I was thrilled!
While Pat worked in the building on Saturday, I wavered between checking in on college football games, getting some jewelry made, and exploring the property. I discovered bees buzzing all over the blooms on the loquat trees. And, somehow captured this butterfly with its tongue out!
I was inspired to try to experiment with creating a tin and bead mushroom. Though, I understand that not everyone sees it as a mushroom. I guess I need to work on the design some more.
As if that wasn't enough mushrooms, I stumbled across this interesting one in the woods.
And really, that was the week. It was busy, but full of joy.
I only found one thing to share and it was this blog post from Autin Kleon with an inspiring Ann Patchett quote.
I'm not sure what the week ahead holds, but I really do hope it's a good one! Here's wishing you a wonderful week as well.
