extremely crafty lately. I can't get enough of creating. I am literally jumping from one project to the next, and most are only half done, but I eventually come back to it. I'm not talking about doing this in a month...or a week, I'm talking about an evening. I jump from project to project every half hour or so. I am just so excited about everything I'm making.
if it will take all night for my NEW external hard drive to copy over all my files from my portable hard drive. I'm so glad it came today, but it is quite a chore to get all the files backed up.
sharing my photos with my friends. I haven't taken very many since my hard drive crashed, but I am certainly missing the process of taking, editing, and sharing. Can't wait to get back to it.
looking forward to
getting my blog caught up with my Kitty Project. I've kept on snappin' throughout this hard drive fiasco, but haven't uploaded a single one. There will be a plethora of Kitty pretty soon. :)
also looking forward to
going to the pumpkin patch this weekend. Crossing my fingers for NO RAIN! We love the pumpkin patch. It is really more like a harvest festival, than a pumpkin patch, but it is tradition for Sugar and I. Can't wait! ♥
all the wonderful contributors to the Gabriella Fundraiser. We raised just over $1000. WOO HOO!!!!! what a blessing!
nearly everything I see. Man, I want a pumpkin pie blizzard......drooling.....droooooooling........
to be finally back to reading books for pleasure. I used to read 3-4 books a month, but for the last 5 years, I've only read blogs, magazines, and parenting/educational books. I made it a goal of mine to get back to leisure reading, and in the last month I've read 2 books. I'm easing into it, and loving every minute of it.
get back to coping over my files, if I want them to ever be done.

Because my new External hard drive still isn't here, and I haven't uploaded photos in over a week, but I really wanted to blog today, I have decided to make a list of some of the things I LOVE. This was inspired by Carol, of InkyBlog.
~crisp fall leaves.
~carving jack o' lanterns.
~cool water to drink.
~making just about anything for Sugar Bear to wear.
~coming home to find dinner already made.
~fresh baked bread.
~good back up systems.
~a fire in the fireplace on a cold day.
~a surprise in the mailbox.
~kissing the warm cheek of a sleeping child.
~seeing the number on the scale go down.
~the purr of a kitty.
~learning something new.
~movie theater popcorn.
~hearing the words, "I love you!"
~the feel of my camera in my hands.
~holding a finished project.
~making someone smile.
~warm pumpkin muffins...or scones....or well....anything pumpkin, really.
~hot glue guns.
~bedtime stories, and lingering snuggles.
While, I've been away....I've been so very fortunate to take part in many of the above mentioned loves.
LIFE IS GOOD! Hoping yours is too!

Even if you THINK you aren't interested in the raffle. Just do me a favor and read about it. Then.....if you feel so inclined, please pass the word. Tweet it, Facebook it.....mention it on your blog. WE would really love for this raffle to be VERY successful.
The prizes are INCREDIBLE! Tons of stuff....TONS! handmade, handcrafted.....super cool stuff!
Oh and if you liked my little Octopus I made for Sugar....well, there is a very special little red one over there as a prize. I made it with hearts in honor of Gabriella. It is VERY cute!
You don't want to miss this opportunity to not only possibly win some very cool stuff, but to support a young family in great need. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this raffle please let me know. I know Megan VERY well, and have been a part of planning this raffle.

Day 29- Work was C-R-A-Z-Y, and I was quite literally feeling like I'd been pinned to the wall.
Day 30- The season of a REALLY dirty truck begins, and I loved the "real" kitty footprints on my hood. Unlike some folks, who can't stand to see cat prints on their vehicle, it makes me smile each time I see them. Such sweet little prints. ♥
Day 31- Just us girls at home tonight, so we snuggled with our quilt, watched a movie and ate popcorn. ♥
Day 32- Sometimes I just feel so very stuck in the middle.
Day 33- Spent the entire day crafting, sewing, and creating with my Sugar. These are some bits and pieces to be thrown away after making Sugar Bear's Halloween costume. I set Kitty up with a fun ensamble, and when Sugar saw is hours later, she said, "Tee Hee....Kitty is from Russia!" What a silly little cookie that girl is.
Day 34- Sugar spent a good deal of her time on Sunday learning to play darts. I was the audience.
Day 35- Took this while hanging out by the recycle bin with some friends at work.
Not only did this past week, start off the second month of this project, it wraped up September. I had a little fun, and made up a collage of all the photos I took in that first month. They are not in order of how I took them, however.
