Hi, hi, hiya! I am sooooooo happy to be here. I can not even begin to tell you where my roller-coaster life took me ;)
I have had such a looooong week. I have been stuck in 24 hours (over the course of a three day period), of license renewal for my previous career. I like to keep things in check just in case I one day need it again, and per law, you have to do yucky school things to keep your license in order every two years. It was brutal, awful, horrible. Alas, I have to be prudent and keep things in check. Needless to say, oodles of quizzes and tests later reveals that ~ I am soooooo glad I get to spend time here with you, and I don't want to ever leave ;)
The only way to pop myself back into whimsy world was to go on a doodle binge...
I don't even know how this doodle began, but it kept going and going, until...
It got super full of all sorts of things that make me smile, and then bursted with color...
Much to my surprise, a colorful skelly illustration found its way out of my pencil.
Doodle bright :)
My sis gave me approval that she liked it, as she is the skelly pro. She owns more skull love than anyone I know.
I printed one out on canvas, and framed it up...
Mister Lovee thinks I should try a black frame. But, being the girly gal I am, I chose a white viney frame, and hung it in the sleeping nook.
I turned it into a formal print, and ~
With that, all I can say is, I am sooooo ecstatic to be back!
But, is it really the last week of October?
(I made some caramel apple cake (2nd try was perfection) to help me get through my week. I am using a bit of this lovely gal's apple brownie recipe, and a lot of my own messing with ingredients, including adding caramel. I will let you know more details on the recipe soon, if you want to know it?)
Sorry for midnight photos, but it is the best time for caramel apple cake :)
My month blew by so fast, with all its crazy busyness, that I am just blown away.
I sat and hugged my warm jack-o-lantern last night for a long time. Just to try to absorb the rapidly passing days. Sheesh...
They say time goes by faster as you get older, but this is just nuttzz, nuttzz I tell ya...
Father-time has got to slow down :)
Will someone, with more authority than I, let him know to slow it down a bit? Please??
Oh, one more thing...
I have to give special props to kind Mister Lovee for all the gifts and flowers, and treats he surprised me with this week. Most of all, for his all around niceness. He really helped me get through it. It was a bit much to have to add all those classes to my days, after the party and the rest of the never ending madness, ya know?
He put a heart locket charm bracelet on me, and told me that "the universe" had sent it. Isn't that funny? I cherish anything he gives me so much. But mostly, I cherish him. Puke puke sappy, right? I know ;)
So with that I will say....
I am so delighted to be back. That rotten real world renewal school stuff makes me appreciate this little happy world here, even more.
Also, I have a TREAT for you, soon.
I might be back with it later, but if not, in the morning for certain ;)
