Nothing says traditions like a holiday...and in our house Birthdays have always been treated like holidays! We hold firmly to the belief that if there is a day you are ever going to celebrate, it's the day you were born. Luckily for Fi, her birthday is October 8, which coincides with Columbus day this year, extending the Birthday to Birthday weekend. We lined up all kinds of special treats, starting with a Half Marathon on Saturday, if you can call that a treat..followed up with some other birthday specials, breakfast out at our favorite diner, presents, bookstore coffee and browse around, made to order breakfasts and dinners, chocolate cake (yum!) and a wind down with one of our favorite hobbies on Monday... painting
Years ago, I painted unfinished wood and sold it at craft fairs. Fi loved to go with me to purchase supplies and attend craft shows looking for ideas. Although it has been a long time since I have participated in a craft fair, we still have lots of supplies on hand. A rainy Monday proved the perfect time to paint some new pieces to add to our collection. Wow, and a bonus, something for Try it on Tuesday's Halloween challenge. Of course we are not the only ones getting in to the spirit of Halloween...
