Happy October!

Where do the days go? I can't believe we're this far into October already. With all the rain lately, I really can't decide if it's fall, or if it's Spring again! I have to admit I love the cool nights, great sleeping weather, but I think I'm about ready for the rain to stop now.

Thank you my friends for your nice comments on my previous post. My pretty purple flower has been doing a lot of spinning lately with all of this wind!

This past Saturday was National Cardmaking day, did you know that? So, what's a crafter to do, make cards? Yes, probably, but I did not. It just didn't fit in this weekend. I would like to share a card that I received recently though. My bestest friend that I've known since childhood sent me this card recently

The picture really doesn't do it justice. You can't see online that this was made from papyrus paper, that the little hummingbird's body has miniature jewels that make it sparkle. I was in love when I saw the card, and it carried such sweet words from my friend.

So, what did I do Saturday that I couldn't play with paper? Hubby and I participated in Mallow Run Winery's Wine at the Line 5K race! There was an option to run 5 miles, we just enjoyed the 5K. After the run, you are rewarded with a souvenir glass, with your choice of wine, and music on the grass. The rain held out long enough for us to get through the run, have a bite to eat, and hear a little bit of music. When the sprinkles started, we hurried home! It was a lot of fun.

And as a last note, this is the way our weekend started out:

Youngest son was asked by one of the queen candidates to be her escort for the homecoming game Friday night. How happy we were that he escorted the girl that was chosen to be North Putnam's 2013 Homecoming Queen! They looked so good together. And their photo was on the front page of the local paper Saturday morning, not the whole queen court as we expected to see (of course hubby and I had to go out in search of the paper to have for a scrapbook) This was the first football game we've been to this year, and probably the last, well worth it in our opinion.

That's it for today my friends, must get ready for work! Hoping to get a stitching update on here this week! Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day
