Time seems to be flying by all of a sudden, I keep thinking ,Oh I have lots of time to do this and that, but nope I don't!
I see my last post was over a week ago, so what was I doing all these days? Well I would love to say I was diligent and working hard on projects the entire time, but truth be told , I was drifting along in a bit of my own world, until suddenly last Saturday/Sunday I realized ! Holy crap! 1 week of October left!
I had no Christmas pictures chosen, nor calenders pics, I had a presentation to write and, and, and ...
But first I did some fussing and cleaning in the house and barn, then decided to totally rearrange my bedroom and hang new curtains!
Very please with the result ! It makes my room look so much larger!
I took a few photos here and there,again took a few shots of the Northern Lights Still only on a fence post with the little camera, but I like the result , also this kind of different effect of the old log house and the "mini"
Also we had a skiff of snow which seemed to prompt the start of this years version of the Phoenix/Skeeter,"Dog and Pony show "
Then I went online and looked at Shutterfly, I realized they had the same deal as last year, 40% off orders before Oct 28! Well great! It makes the calenders and Christmas cards so much more affordable if I can get the discount so I set to work!
There it is !
Then the calender, not so quick and not so easy, but I got it done in time and sent out my order.Whew! Anyone interested , they are still $25 this year, (the discount makes it possible with the shipping to hold the price )
So on to the presentation, way back in July I was asked to speak at the Rural Women's conference in Sangudo. I had hoped to be able to present about the Equine assisted learning program, however the format was set in advance ,so I was instead asked to have a table with my books and photos and also to do a presentation on Farm First aid, "What's in your Kit"
I am not a great public speaker, but somehow I agreed. That is happening Tuesday this week, so while I should have been working on it for some time already , I wasn't , so I worked into the wee hours on Wednesday night putting it together . Not to say I had nothing done prior to that , as I did write an article some years back about this very subject , but it was certainly not presentation ready and I also did a power point to go along with it. Reminded me of my High School years lol way back when I learned I am really good under pressure ! Oops !
That all done I got to spend a little time just hanging out this weekend , caught up Johnny and gave him a good brushing, and also Cat and Andee while I was at it .
Attended a baby shower today and got to spend some quality time with this handsome young man
So that about wraps up what I was doing while I was supposed to be doing ...
Ah whatever I got it done, I hope . Wish me luck on Tuesday please and I hope to be back online soon, I need to tell you all about my new horse!
Meanwhile ,stay safe!
