Long weekend...


I was off of work Friday so I had a nice long weekend. Saturday I went down to the river and was hoping to get a bunch of cool shots of the sunset.

The last time Kelley and I went down to the river I couldn't find the trail to hike back up the hill because all of the fallen leaves had covered the trail...so I put a ribbon on a tree so I could find my way back up the trail...
especially since it was going to be dark when I left

*are you laughing at me Kel?* :)

But there was no need for the ribbon...I quickly discovered I was on the wrong side of the river to get any type of good sunset shot. LOL. So...with a little time left I hiked back up the hill and drove down the street to a park along the river and just took a few shots while I watched the sun go down.




Today I made one of my 'explore' rings for Abby in a different size (tiny!)...


and I got my 'time flys' ring ready to ship out. My Aunt Diane bought it and I am kind of sad to see it go, but I am happy that she is going to be the one to wear it.


and it was a pretty cold day today (for Atlanta) and it is supposed to snow tonight so I was in the soup mood...and tried a new recipe for Macaroni & Cheese Soup! I got the recipe from the Food Network Magazine. It was supposed to be a 'lightened' up version of Macaroni & Cheese...I don't know how 'light' it was, but it was really good and I will definitely be making it again!!


I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and hope a great week is ahead for all of us!

We marked out certain plants and trees at the bottom of the hill leading up to the parking lot. So no, I'm not laughing at you :)

Love the sun shots!

Anything mac & cheese is good. Love the rings especially "time flies".

Oh that soup looks good! Mostly now when we keep on getting snow here in KY. Thank you for the ring. :) I cannot wait to put it on my finger. :) I shared it with my husband and he said it was an appropriate word to pick. :) Oh and I shared it on facebook to a link to your Etsy and your blog so if you see people from Alaska pass by your page they probably are friends or family. :) Hope it gives you some exposure. I love your work. :)
