When life gives you fauna, what do you do?

Well thanks to my Humblebeads niece Heather, I've been making
molds for clay. And that's about as far as I have gotten. I'm gonna
do something more than make molds, but I either have to wait till
the cruise in March for her to show me how to add special finishing
techniques or I'm gonna have to experiment on my own.
Hmmmm....that's a tough one.
I have been rolling ideas for Christmas gifts around in my head.
Kind of making a list, I know, WHAT DO YOU MEAN CHRISTMAS?
But if we don't get started now, it will be here before we know it.
I have stuffies to make for the kids, and ideas for other things that
I can't mention. I make my own Christmas cards, I love to stamp
and emboss, not to mention embellishing. That takes a bit of time
to say the least. Geary actually helps with the cards, its kind of fun
to have him help with stuff...
Today Geary and I went together and picked another 15 pounds
of blueberries. I just can't get enough of them and they are still
so abundant! I picked some for my mom and froze some.
Left some for us to eat when we wanted. I see blueberry pancakes
in my future. And this is Blueberry Festival weekend in South Haven.
Tomorrow the Aunts and I are walking the craft show. The weather
has been totally perfect. Speaking of weather, we had waterspouts
off the lake Thursday. Really pretty cool. I saw the tail end of the
funnel rising up in the air. I probably should have been a little
more cautious, but we always go look to see whats coming instead
of seaking shelter. One of these days we'll get caught being stupid.
I can say we don't stand outside during a thunderstorm anymore..
Last night we celebrated my Uncle Rick's daughter's wedding. How
sweet it was...a little out of the ordinary. I can finally say I went to
a wedding where the Groom and the Best Man wore camo.
The Grooms cake was decorated in camo frosting. Jenny's garter
was camo elastic, but thank goodness she wore a beautiful gown.
They didn't go on a Honeymoon right away, as goose hunting
opens on Monday. Yee Haw!
But really, we had a great time with all the relatives being there.
Lately that seems to be the only time we all get together. And of
course I forgot my camera....
