I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend:) I spent mine taking photos for the cheer team and at a high school football game. My youngest is in his senior year and is a star football player. The team won once again, so that means they will be moving to the playoffs. I am so excited for the kids they are making so many wonderful memories and some great game footage for those college recruiters.
I sure hope the weather holds off for the playoffs. So far it has been bitter cold and windy but no rain and I am thankful for that. Last season over half the games were in the rain, making it just miserable for the fans and for me it makes it impossible to capture photos. We live in such a small village that I am the yearbook photographer for sports. The good part about it is that I am welcome down on the field and I get lots of photography practice. I was so thankful for our heated mattress pad last night after the game. I was smart enough to turn it on before we left the house so I jumped right into a warm snuggly bed after the game.
Not only is it football season, it’s the time of year to bring out all my pretty fall dishes. Soups, stews, and warm bread look lovely agains the rust and gold dishes. I think I must be a fall person, I enjoy the jewel color tones of fall, cooking in a crockpot, and eating warm hearty meals.
We had a heavy frost here in my neck of the woods and the last of my flowers are all brown and withered. It looks like I will be working in the cold this week trying to clean up the last of whats hanging around. My herbs are close to the house, and protected from the frost, so I can still use those and hubby picked the last of the strawberries last night. It looks like winter will be here before we know it.
