On The Road

Good morning and hope you're enjoying your lovely Fall weather where ever you lay your heads. It's still hotter than hell out here in TX and it's getting a bit tiring. The local meteorologists have given up....I think they've taken up reading tea leaves or chicken bones because they're way off course with their predictions. It's not as if we get these really cold winters, hardly, but it would be nice to smell the crispness in the air and the ozone that Fall usually provides for us out here in far West TX. LOL

This is going to be short post, but I wanted to introduce to you my second set of dancing skellies:



I sold the other two, as I mentioned in my last post. I'm saving one of the unfinished hanging skelly for my little granddaughter's nursery, which she will be sharing with her older brother, the two year old Sammy, and yes, he's going through the usual "terrible two's!" Oy

I will be leaving for Austin, TX today to attend my friend's birthday bash. We arrive this evening after 10 p.m., way after my bedtime!! Tomorrow, Irene has to work, but her beautiful daughter, Michele, will be taking us out to the Rocky River Ranch in Whimberly. Of course, we have to stop at Shady Groves for our fix of green-chile cheese fries....delish!! We'll also stop somewhere for ice, beer, water and whatever...it's girl scout camp all over again, except with beer!! LOL I will be seeing my daughter and grandsons on Monday. They're driving down from Round Rock, a burb of Austin and about an hour from my friend who lives in South Austin. We're planning on having breakfast then they'll drop me off at where Irene and Edna will be, hopefully, somewhere on South Congress Street...fun place!! Edna and I will head on home on Southwest and arrive late afternoon...sigh!

Before I go, I wanted to show you a little doll I made out of an Altoid box. Wendy Aspinall over at blissangels.blogspot.com is having a swap. I made this little skellie girl for my partner, Mercedes, and hope she likes it, because I do...LOTS!!


Ok, friends, have many miles to go before I lay my weary head...approximately 640 of them!! Need to run a couple of errands then start packing because I have to head out to the airport around 5...great...just in time for the 5 p.m. I-10 parking lot!! Peace out,

Hi Georgina. I hope you have fun in your trip, you always do. Love your new dolls. I wend to Adriana's blog and for some reason I entered your name instead of her name. Guess I had you on my mind because I had just read your comment on my blog. Thx for stopping by. Safe trip.

Oh, I hope you end up having lots of fun at the birthday bash! I guess you guys are having a long Indian summer there in your part of TX. Love your skellies and the Altoid doll!!

You are living example of thinking out of the box, which is hard for me to do. Have never spent much time in Texas and given the heat, the fires et al this summer, I'm glad I didn't visit. Enjoy your trip.
