Wonderful Week

Here are two of my little pumpkins I made for my Halloween display. I began painting little pumpkins a few years ago after getting the idea from one of the grocery stores that sold painted pumpkins that quite frankly, were just too ugly in my opinion. They're fun to make and really quite low maintenance. The only sad thing is that they don't last too long, so they're just a temporary little piece of the season....tear!

Had a great week and looking forward to more of it. Lunched with my good friend and her BFF...had sushi. She's having problems with her mother (her mother and I went to high school together) and my friend needed some advise. I'm her crazy older, oldest friend and she sometimes needs a little perspective and I'm just the gal to do it!! Afterward, I called my daughter and told her to thank her lucky stars she has a mother like me!!!! Don't get me wrong, her mother is a love, but she's not my mother, thank God!

Going to a Dia de los Muertos party on Saturday and I can't wait. Guess who I'm dressing up as....LA LLORONA, of course. I already bought my make-up and I have plenty of clothes for dress-up. I'm still debating if I should buy one of those stupid wigs, but my head will be covered with a shawl. Oh well, not a big problem, it's going to be fun!

This Thursday I'm having lunch with another young friend. The reason I have all these young friends is that I went back to college and graduated 3 years ago at 53, so all these youngsters were my class buddies, actually studio buddies, when attending college. Anyway, she is also very special to me because I met her when I began my studio courses in art and she had just graduated from high school starting out as a frosh. I haven't seen her since her bridal shower 3 years ago but we talk on our birthdays, we share the same birthday Feb. 1, but she's 30 years younger!! Anyway, in those 3 years, she married had a baby and now divorced. Sad thing is that the ex-husband and his mother ran off with their son and she hasn't seen the little boy in almost 2 years....very sad. She has been working with police and has a private eye on the case, but so far no sign of where that jerk is, was last seen in Albuquerque, NM, but the case went cold after that. Just keep her in your prayers and hope she will be reunited with her baby boy soon.

Well, signing off now...still have some things to say, but will leave that for another time. Peace out!

Thanks Jade. I couldn't beleive it when I went to your profile and we have much in common. I can't get enough of the "Hill Have Eyes" and I can watch "Sean of the Dead" over and over it, too funny. I must be an old version of you!!

Love your little pumpkins.
You should try mini gourds.
The dried gourds will last forever. :) You can buy them on line.
Gourds ae way cool.

I have gourds. A couple of years ago we took a drive up to southeastern New Mexico and while driving along, we noticed fresh goards off the road, so we stopped and went a-pickin'. They're all finally dry but I still need to clean them up. Thanks for the they won't be temporary...great idea.
