October is here! It is one of my favorite months. I haven’t fully enjoyed it the past few years because of my consulting work and moving. So the gloves are off now that those commitments are over! We plan to head out on the open road throughout the month for one or two day trips. Maybe three. Who knows? Destinations in Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, Virginia, and North Carolina will all be up for grabs. We’ll hopscotch along, catch some good weather, and visit some scenic areas and fall festivals. “Footloose” is the theme this month!
The outside projects are all done, including the area fixed up below the deck. We even put a new coat of paint on the garage door hardware last week. Yes, I owe all of you some photos. I am currently waiting for the rain to end and the yard to dry out. Shoo, rain, shoo! I would have taken photos this weekend, but we just had the lawn aerated and overseeded.
I still have quite a lot of Alaska photos to share with you this month. I’ve taken a break from the Montana photo editing. I’ve got a tad of burnout. So I am concentrating on some photo studies and online tutorials right now. I will also be road testing some new equipment and techniques this month. The learning never ends! But if you’ve been following me for the past couple of years, you’ll see that my diligence is paying off. I’m getting better.
Mister Jim bought some bigger metal picture frames for his home office, and I helped him hang them up earlier today. Gosh, his new photos look wonderful. He picked out some images he took during from our Montana and Alaska journeys. Now he’s given me the bug to print out and hang some more of my own. We’re running out of empty wall space in this house, but there is some available real estate waiting to be filled in my studio room. Ah, and one thing on my Christmas list this year is a large digital photo frame to strategically put in my home office. Do any of you have recommendations?
I got just a tiny bit of sewing accomplished last month. My project plans didn’t come to fruition. Oh my. So there will be no promises this month! Greater success through lower expectations, that’s my motto! Thanks to iron pills and rest, I am starting to feel a bit better and recovering some energy. So we’ll see what mischief I’ll get into besides our short traveling jaunts.
I hope that your month is splendid and colorful!
