Autumn in Minnesota
My sidekick and I have been busy with school, dance, work, etc. I even ended up selling my old beat-up blazer a few weeks ago and transferred to an old, beat up Ford Mercury until I can afford something else in the Spring. AFTER the orthodontist payments, lol. Fall has also been busy for me with family photo shoots, and I have had mini-sessions the last two weekends. We have a scheduled trip to Southeastern Minnesota for a “fall color tour” this weekend. However, the fall color is pretty much gone, and it is supposed to be cold, wet and windy. Good thing we have a pool and wi fi at the hotel. Hopefully soon, I will have time to blog hop like I used to and catch up with some of you I haven’t “seen” in a while.
My sidekick celebrated her 14th birthday earlier this month. Where has the time gone? Soon she will be dating, driving, graduating from high school and heading off to college. It goes by way too fast. I am sad to see the time that has past, but I am also looking forward to what is yet to come!
I have also been asked to donate to an upcoming silent auction for breast cancer. I decided to put a few framed prints, a calendar and some matted prints up for auction for this. My sidekick goes to school and has been friends with the woman’s daughter since kindergarten. It was kind of fun picking out a few of my best prints, and searching for the best frames and mattes. Hopefully, it will bring some money in for the family. It is just a little something that I can do for them.
My 52 Week Challenge, however, leaves a lot to be desired. I missed last week entirely. I am seriously considering another 365 challenge at the first of the year. I have to admit, some of my best work has come out of my Project 365. We will have to wait and see.
So that is “what’s up” in my neck of the woods. I hope you enjoy the slideshow!
