Both Myrna and Angie are very active in various types of volunteer works. I'm getting internal 'nudges' to begin becoming involved outside of our new home. This entire area is a non-stop highway to so many more kinds of involvements than you could possibly imagine. I just have to be careful of not trying to wear too many different hats.
This month there is going to be a children's carnival at the local elementary school. I'll be there wearing my very own 'photographer's name tag'. Fun......When I photographed the Kid's Saturday Art Day in Port Orford on Saturdays........I really enjoyed it. The kids are all so natural (and funny).....the various moods or instant happenings are right there on their faces or in the scene. These photos will be a little more posed but I'm thinking that they'll be just as much fun. I'll edit them and them send them over to WalMart for printing. Each child's family will get a photo of their kid in his/her favorite super-hero/heroine's costume. The photos are free to each child which is a lovely thought.
I think my original plans of just holding up in my studio and doing art, art and more art, are getting shuffled aside. But I'm looking forward to seeing just which doors open for me.
Both Norm and I have had dental appointments the last couple of weeks. I have two crowns coming....just in time for the present bruises on my face to disappear before I get more.....And Norm had some dental problems of his own which had him eating 'gingerly' for a day or two. All is well now. And I'm finally getting rid of a nasty cold.......and hoping to do the same with this miserable phone system we now have. It HAS to go! No one can hear well at either end. One sister referred to it sounding like we each had a tin can with a string in between. Another thought it sounded like I was calling from Russia. Found out this week that this phone system will never work right since our internet and TV is satellite. I'm just waiting for the phone representative to come and dismantle the thing and I'll go and find a regular landline phone. Problem is that all the companies are pushing their bundles. I'm really so tired of working with this phone issue. I can't count the hours that have been spent over it. Hopefully, soon I'll have something that will work.
I'm hoping to go photo shooting tomorrow.........and in another week or so, Myrna has all kinds of places she's going to show me where there are photo ops galore!! Yahoo!
On the not so neat side of things is the rain. Remember how Norm and I were snickering at how the newspapers over here thought how the rains were so heavy? And the winds so fierce? Compared to Port Orford, it was funny to us. Well, they'll all have the last laugh since that 3/4" rain had washed out part of our back lawn.......a regular little gully that washed somewhere on down the hill behind us. The fence is now tilting and I'd be surprised if it lasted the winter. Norm got 3 sacks of soil at Lowe's and packed it into the gully. Of course, he thought he wouldn't need his post hold digger...or his shovels......Guess what Santa will be bringing this Christmas??
Well, that's enough about me.........Hope all of you are enjoying the beautiful autumn. My favorite time of year!!!
Have a great rest of the week!!!
