Life has been simple. My motto. I take my time. I find I do not want to go scurrying all over the place. Now and then, the youngest will convince me to run to Michael's, or JoAnns and I go in and peruse the decor and it is fun. But I don't really need anything. I make do with what I already own. Or I decorate with a wonderful find my hubby found me at an antique fair!
Took my youngest on a day trip south down the Bitterroot Valley. A lovely place. She needed some TLC after a bad breakup (after 5 years!). I have been giving her a lot of time to heal. She likes us to drive and talk and just be together. It is working, but I know she will feel this for some time and it makes me sad.
Since the youngest was away during her birthday (Comic Con) we celebrated yesterday! When she and I were in DisneyWorld, she mentioned she felt like she had cheated on Disneyland and couldn't wait to go back and make amends....LOL So I recreated Disneyland for her birthday theme. Lots of photos of favorite rides and events. Simulated fireworks, popcorn, characters, and pin trader buttons.
I found her the coveted Oogie Boogie popcorn container (only available on the Halloween party night and we missed out!), a vintage Disneyland pennant and a Starbucks mug of the original California Adventure. Thank you Ebay! We had a wonderful time and finished the evening with a great game of Pictionary. Just seeing her having such a great time meant the world to me. And we are going back to Disneyland to right the wrong, next Halloween 2019!
Well, this week is going to be a busy one. We have the Western Montana Fair and Rodeo. And a special event that I go to each year with my youngest called, Chicks and Chaps. A benefit for Breast Cancer. Plus, my hubby who creates Steampunk art is participating in a Make it Fair at the fairgrounds this year. So I will be helping him in his booth. I hope he does well and wows the crowds! Always, Kit
