Here we are week 41 and I know October will be gone in a blink of an eye, always the case as I ready for shows. This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving and when Sally Russick of the Studio Sublime had us thinking on connections in all manner of ways, well, the timing was perfect.
For starters, this arrived!! The Missing Link by Cindy Wimmer, is all about connections. It’s very exciting to receive a beautiful book directly from the author with her sweet message inside, (another great connection.) I keep running through it just looking at the beautiful pictures, I haven’t started to read through proper yet. Of course I’m most attracted to the ones with higher difficulty which shouldn’t really be the starting point, but then again I sometimes do things the hard way.
Friday night brought the celebration of a connection earlier in the courthouse. (I stole this picture from my dear friend’s facebook). This has been a while coming in idea, but only about two weeks ago did I receive a text, would we be available to celebrate? To which I replied “where else would I be” as there are some things that are just not to be missed!
This morning was a third birthday party for a special guy, and we gathered at the local pumpkin patch/berry farm/petting zoo etc to celebrate some more. After a wagon ride, magic show, pizza, cake, presents and general fun the party was wrapping up but with the gorgeous weather we stayed on a bit. Averleigh had decided she didn’t mind waiting in line she wanted to have her face painted. This child has always fought the idea of a comb or basically anything you would touch her face and hair with so I had some doubts. We waited probably about 45min to an hour in line, hubby and I trading off, before it was her turn. The artist asked what she would like and set to work, moving briskly and without much direction. It seems all the children just new when to close their eyes and she moved their heads where they needed to be. Until…
PINK KITTY! That’s what she asked for and I think it turned out pretty good. She wondered if there would be a tail for her, I suggested we could just pretend. She sure did get a kick out of this connection to being a kitty herself.
All these connections I am so thankful for this thanksgiving.
