Normally Friday I particpiate in the great "My Husband Rocks" theme. But today I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that my little laptop here is going in for surgery. Shhhh, I've told her it won't hurt a bit, just gettin' her memory erased, that's all. ;) I am hoping to be back with you guys on Monday. With no laptop and access to the great wide world around me, I'm hoping to take sometime and Fall up my decor and hopefully get crafty.
Wishing you a great weekend!

Can you believe today is the first day of Fall! Ohhh how I loooove me some Fall. The lovely scented candles, the cool breeze through the open windows as we sleep, the crisp air during our nightly walks, the frizz that humidity brought my hair seems to have found a new interest and has left us alone. *Sigh* Fall and Spring are my absolute favorite seasons. How about you?
Well, last week we headed over to our local fair. It was breezy, which was nice, but quickly became hoooot. I took a few pics. Hope you enjoy. Oh, did I tell you I've missed you?
The Haunted House....Woooooooo...Only thing scary was the price! There was nothing in that tour besides painted black walls. Aw, well. Gotta love the fair.
My new wheels, cuz you know that's how I'd roll.
A view from ato the ferris wheel. Did I mention I am afraid of heights? Wasn't so fun.

I'm writing you this from Firefox. We ran a scan last night and found 3 trojan horses! But apparently that was cleaned up so I don't know why Internet Explorer just freezes and kicks me out?! Any computer sawvy people out there? Anyone? Help!
Even Firefox just slows to a crawl and then comes back with Not Responding. Arggggggh. Heeheeeheehooooo, breath, think happy thoughts....don't think of throwing the computer out the window....

Also, he not only understands, but feeds my love of candles. When its raining, or snowing or just wet and dark out I love, love, love to light candles. I tend to prefer the fall scented ones but anyone ol' tealight will do.
Ok, so the "Kindness Matters" isn't a real candle but the little plastic wick looks like one! It was $3.99 at The Christmas Tree Shops. LOVE it. The little red candle beside it, honestly, have no idea where I got it. But I use it all the time! The one behind it is a candle warmer. I loooove it and use it as it warms my MacIntosh Apple Waffers. Can't find them anywhere anymore.
I don't typically light this candle, but the base was from my favorite Goodwill store in Hibbing, MN. It cost all of .50 cents!
Also a Goodwill purchase. It was $1 top and bottom! I couldn't figure out why the inside was painted and not the outside. When I first lit it I was pleasantly surprised. I love this candle.
These are just some of my candle collection. It makes me smile to think when he married me, he married my collections. :)
Wishing you a great weekend.

We visited with family.

Don't get me wrong, we can have some serious fights! His sun sign is the crab, mine's the ram, can you see where this is going? :) But when it's all said and done, we're of the same cloth. We love our families, love our pets, love to spend time together. One of my favorites is taking our pup on long walks. We talk about anything random, anything serious or anything silly. At the end of the day what is important to me, becomes important to him and vice versa. I adore my Grandma. She was ill and it was very important to me that they meet before she passed. He flew to Montreal to meet her, and although life had taken her voice she hugged and patted him on the back. She was pleased to have met him and my heart was overjoyed. Two people I truly love were meeting. He may come off as a rough and tough kinda guy and although I wouldn't want to be one of his opponents, he is loving, and caring and sensitive. He is a great man and he definitely rocks!
Wishing you all a great long weekend! I think we'll take the pup on a hike tomorrow. :)
Happy Labor Day Weekend!

So here I am, nearly 10:00 pm last night, replaying the last 10ish or so years in my mind, trying to mentally check off the things I have always wanted to accomplish. (In all honesty, I went to bed out of sheer exhaustion from trying to rack the brain and determined to be more of a goal getter)!
Let's see, career wise it's always been, working for the man. Getting paid okay, and putting in my hours. Please do not read this as a whine, ok, ok, I re-read it and can see where you can call it that. But although I am happy with the money I have at pay day I am in a job that does not stimulate or sustain me. I have not held a job that I am truly passionate about. I have been living my life in a, "when I get older I hope to do this" sorta way.
When I sat back and realized where I am is not truly (I'm talking career wise) where I want to be, I know now that there are things I really need to do to be happy. I'm not talking big money either, it has never been my goal (I love Goodwill to much for that)! So I thought long about what I really love and these are the things that came to mind. Writing, being home, animals, decorating, repurposing household items, human history (people who've come before us, how they lived, what issues they faced). How would this relate to a carreer? I have no idea!
So, let me ask you, up until now, are you satisifed with how your lives have led? Granted there are things in our lives we cannot control, but I'm talking the things we can. What are your proudest accomplishments? What can you check off you bucket list?
