Home From Vacation

I just got home from my 11 day working vacation on the Central Coast. I spent the last two days at the San Luis Obispo Renaissance Faire. I took a lot of amazing photos. My camera is still buried in the car somewhere but I'm looking forward to sharing the best ones after I get a good night's sleep. It is late and I don't know why I am still up. I'm certainly tired enough to fall asleep sitting up. I guess I've missed my computer and I'm catching up on Internet time.

I'll be happy to get back to my 'Give it 100' goals. I wasn't able to do it while traveling since I don't have a portable computer. So I'll just start fresh in the morning. Come check it out if you are not following me already.

My garden and my chickens grew a lot while I was gone. Chicken tails are much more prominent than when I left and the yellow chicken has a lot more white on it now. The squash and beans have both sprouted and the nasturtium seeds I planted now have leaves about the size of quarters.

The only thing that looks bad is my terrarium. I need to go look at it before bed and figure out what happened. My boyfriend thought it looked too wet and rotting so he took the lid off. But I fear then everything wilted. Oh dear. I may have to start from scratch.

I got home right at sunset. It seemed just like a cowboy movie.

Happy Day Challenge Day 44

Tell a New Story Happy Day 44
Working on my Law of Attraction Art Journal makes me happy. I decided to also do it on Give it 100.com. If you join that site, just remember each video clip is only 10 seconds long. I'm finding it hard to make something so short!

Happiness Challenge Days 40, 41, 42, and 43

Taking the photo is the fun and easy part. Finding the time to edit, number and post the photos to 3 or 4 spots is tedious. I've missed so many days I'm not even half done yet and I'm about to be away from my computer for 2 weeks. If you do a photo project it really helps to  have a smart  phone and Instagram. I don't have either of those things. I have to wait until I'm physically sitting at my desktop computer.

Happy Day 39 Knitting a Bunny

Sitting on my neighbor's porch knitting.

Happy Day Challenge Day 39
I found a tutorial on how to make a bunny out of a knitted square. If all else fails I'll still have an orange washcloth, right?
