|shiny shoes for work / fall themed pies at The Grit / porch times / delicious take-out food / Mr Winthrope / my mug has a story!|
Well, this is the saddest collection of Instagram photos ever. I just haven't been using it often. Or Facebook. Or Twitter. Or anything really. I've been too darn busy either working or running around in a 'ohmygoshitisfallandIhavesomanyplansandstuffthatIwanttodoandwowlookatthatsunset!' haze that's actually kept me from doing some things. Weird, huh? Now, I'm not saying that spontaneity is bad but I do have the tendency to let a lot of things fall (ha! fall! pun?) by the wayside when I'm in these kind of moods...and as an adult the rent has to be paid, the house has to be somewhat clean and the books need to go back to the library on time. But that flibbery flibbishesness ends today! (The unfocusedness...not the paying of rent and the like!) After my shift I am going to sit down, get organized and present to you an October Goals List that will not only help me get on track (and settle down and focus a wee bit) but also give you a better idea of what to expect from Moxtoberfest. Woo-hoo!
Oh, and for those of you interested in the story of the mug then here it is. A Jekyll Island woman, who is fighting the selling of State Park land, commissioned a limited number of them made using her own artwork and then gave them to friends during the holidays. And one of my co-workers got one last year since the artist lives in Athens during the winter. Small world since I have family in the SSI/Jekyll area involved in the movement too! The only shame is that I can never tell her that I ended up having one of the mugs...that would mean I'd have to tell her that someone gave her gift to the thrift! Bummer.
Anyhoo, I'm off to work and then to the fair tonight. I cannot wait to take some pictures and pet some critters and watch people ride insanely nauseating rides.
