What a fabulous weekend! Friday the kids were off of school and luckily it was a beautiful day...overcast and a little breezy but warm. Although I had lots planned for us to do, we decided to get away from the house for a couple of hours and went to the beach. They enjoyed digging in the sand, rolling down where the sand had drifted up, and making "sand" angels. The kids had a blast!
We hadn't been to the beach in a couple of weeks, and we have had 4 major storms in the last few weeks. WOW! I was astounded at the damage to the beach. So much sand and dune has washed away. The high tides and rough surf has created this ledge, if I had to guess, I would say that it is about 6-8 feet high. A shame...so much $$ is spent to replenish the beach, and it's washed away in a couple of storms:(
Saturday...omg...as soon as the kiddies got up they were all amped up about trick or treating!! My dear daughter decided that she needed a different costume than the one we had purchased! What?? I absolutely refused to go out and buy another costume...so we rummaged through her closet and came up with a punk-rock fairy. She was happy...so everything in the world was right, and that's all that matters...right? Anyhow, the rain held out and trick or treating was a blast! The kids ran from door to door and we all got our exercise.

Sunday...was a rainy, gloomy day. Lots of laying on the couch and watching TV. While all this excitement was going on I was able to slip away to my bench. I crafted several new pieces for the shows that I have coming up. Thank goodness the creative juices are flowing...I'm hoping to get lots of new pieces created!!
