Hello friends, old and new! This has been one of those weeks that you wish you could erase from the books, from being rear-ended by an uninsured teenager to work that steals your weekend, but this post will not dwell on those issues!
It's Pink Saturday, so even though I am tired and in pain, I trudged my bootie to the computer to post the pics that I have been excited about all week!
I had to work last weekend as well, and ended up spending half my Saturday at the University of Houston Clear Lake for the monthly Autism Speakers Series (and really, the SPecial Needs portion of my job is my favorite, so I was a little happier!) The Student Center building where the speaking engagement was held has these leaf impressions all over the sidewalk! How absolutely adorable!
Then this past week, Monkey's teachers finished up their fall tree decoration that the kids have been working on (Hint: It says "Fall in love with learning.") I love it!
It reminded me of a name tag that was made for me at my very first Officers' Spouses' Club meeting when I became an Army wife 8 years ago ... and yes, I too am shocked this little thing has survived 3 moves and countless craft room or holiday storage reorganizations! I love to put it on display somewhere different each year. Love it!
It's not necessarily "fall foliage" but in the spirit of Halloween, I made this adorable little spide dish towel, and thought I was finished but decided to extended his web across the top, so back into the working basket he went. Maybe I'll get to finish him this week ...
And this really has nothing to do with Fall foliage, but with the cooler weather comes lots of soups and stews and I made this quick and easy "semi-homemade" broccoli cheese soup and will try to post the recipe sometime this week.
Well, I hope everyone has a wonder Pink Saturday and takes the time to enjoy the wonder fall colors of nature that are popping up!
Until our next cup of tea ...
