November! Changes!

It’s November!!! Ah the Fall, only 88 degrees today. I’m wondering if I will ever be able to wear my many beautiful autumn sweaters. Surely by December.

I had such a great time with all the ghosts and goblins last night! Fun to see the dads, dressed in shorts and t-shirts walking their children around. We moved from the country (where we had absolutely no trick or treaters) to a neighborhood filled with little adorable children.

So many changes since we moved to Arizona last January. The weather, the city life, traffic, so much to see and do. Don’t get me wrong, I loved living in Missouri, the beautiful Ozarks. The GREEN of it all! That is one thing I surely miss, besides the seasons (well, three of them anyway). Our front yard is one of only two on our whole street that has grass. The others are decorated in rock. They look nice, but I miss the green. Then there is the snow….. So beautiful in pictures. Nuf’ said.

I am reading blogs, lots of blogs, and I find myself gravitating to those from folks in the country. I guess it will always be a part of me. This is really funny since I was born and raised in the big “city” in southern California. Anyway, that’s how I’ll get my country fix.

In the meantime, I’m in-joy-in this wonderful life of mine. So many things to do. Taking sewing lessons (really a refresher course), cake decorating classes, joining a book club, all the things I’ve wanted to do! I’ve applied to volunteer at the local elementary school. They really make a big deal of checking you out. I guess that’s a good thing. It takes time though. Looking forward to it.

So now I have to figure out how to use my new camera. I say “new” because I’ve never used it before. I got it for Christmas last year. It was supposed to be so simple to use. It’s one of those little mini video cams and a still camera all in one. You can hook it up straight to the computer to download for you tube or blogs, etc. I WILL FIGURE IT OUT!!!! Maybe I should read the directions. Anyway, I will post pictures of my finished products. Promise.

Always remembering, Life is good and I’m in-joy-in-my bliss.
