I'm vegging out, nursing some sort of sickness and watching movies. But I've already seen this movie, so I thought I'd post one of those big giant posts I promised.
How about some pictures from last weekend?
We spent the early part of Halloween working a fundraiser for Andrew's TSA club - a bake sale at an outdoor event called Water, Wings & Wild Things. Of course, I baked a little something.
The boys helped set up the booth,
and Chris won a coffee mug shaped like a toilet from the utilities company.
Emma made a ladybug cookie,
but we didn't stay very long. I'm trying desperately to volunteer in moderation.
Before leaving, however, we walked around and visited some of the wildlife. There was a butterfly tent!
And the Audubon Society had some beautiful birds there.
But most importantly, though I haven't any pictures to prove it, I met Pockets the Cross-Eyed Opossum. He lives with a local rescue organization whose card I picked up but don't have near the recliner, so I'm going to be a good girl and stay put and not look for it. You can live without the link for now, right? Because I hope you'll hear more about Pockets on this blog. While I was standing there, I heard one of the organization's volunteers mention that they would love to find someone creative who could write a book about Pockets. My hands, of their own volition, flew to my mouth, making it very hard to pretend that I wasn't interested. The director saw me. She said that actually, she only needed an illustrator. I mentioned that I'm a photography student and I'd love to do photographic illustrations. There seemed to be interest. I promised to email. And I'm trying to decide if I'm brave enough to email. It's something I would really love to do - I was so very taken with Pockets - but I don't know if it will work out. I'll let you know if anything comes of it...
