More items for the season

Made some more things for this great time of year. Ornaments and key fobs.
Now I just need to figure out munchkin's costume. She was going to be a robot but every other little girl has told her they are going to be a princess. Peer pressure at 4 - a scary thing. So I think we have her convinced to be a zombie princess. Compromise.

Zombie Cupcake

I had to make some ornaments for some swaps called Scary Yet Cute. So of course I thought zombie cupcakes. This one enjoyed it's free time playing in the leaves on my back deck. I hope my partners on Swap-bot like them when they arrive.

Kiwi's Blogger Follower Swap

Well this weekend disappeared. It was Thanksgiving here in Canada and I also was a vendor at a HarvestFest in a neighbouring community on Saturday. Then one of my parents former exchange students (aka littlebro) suddenly visited for two days with his Mom. It is always great to see him, but it made the weekend even more hectic. Hubby, munchkin and I took care of the meal on Sunday so my Mom could go out with their guests in the morning. Actually hubby did most of the work.(My parents only have dialup out there so no computer time for me - it takes forever to download anything)
So I am finally just getting this blog posted for the swap on Swap-bot. I apologize to my partners for the delay. Hope to check out blogs this evening after getting back from the Spinners and Weavers meeting I am going to check out tonight. I shall have to start scheduling at least 1/2 hour everyday for computer time. Need that anymore to keep up to date on things.

Open Farms

After munchkin warmed up to the horse a bit.
Meeting the horse for the first time.
Introducing ourselves to some goats who really liked dry leaves.

We went on a little mini day trip a few weeks ago. The Farming Association set up a day where you could go visit various farms within the community. A wonderful idea especially for kids so they can see where much of their food comes from. It was a beautiful fall day and we completed our trip by going to a small local bakery and having a treat and coffee.

That Time of Year

It's that time of year again where I can humour my own fascination with the bright coulourful imagery of The Day Of The Dead. It is so fun and funky. It's all such a wonderful combination of bright colours, black, whimsy, flowers, skulls and I like the concept of honouring our descendants. Family is a big part of my life and respecting my elders was taught to me at an early age. Two things I am hoping to pass on to my own daughter.
I also love the fall in Eastern Ontario, the changing leaves on the trees add colour to even the grayest day. In general Autumn is my favourite season.
