I am back, witches! WOW – where did October go? It came in swiftly and left just as quickly. Made it another month into the pandemic and so far, so good!
I had a great week with my niece, Autumn! If you will remember, she came down for a week (during her Fall break,) and we got the opportunity to chill out and chat. I learned so much more about her and what she is dealing with and I feel like we were able to bond more. I am so happy she got the chance to be here. That took an entire week of my time and energy, so that sort of kicked off my absence from writing.
One of the activities we did together was cook! We made the Keto Chocolate donuts that I wrote about last time, plus I taught her how to make red wine braised beef short ribs. I promise to share that recipe later!
Needless to say, they were absolutely amazing!
I also broke out the boxes of Halloween decorations and we started the process of making our home super spooky. I ended up planning a little family Halloween party, which I will share with you a little later. It is hard to believe these decorations have stood the test of time!
I did attend a ribbon cutting for a new tasting room that has made its way to Downtown Americus! The Wolf Creek Plantation winery now has a spot in downtown. How convenient is that?
I also shared my creativity (or lack there of) with the Mattie Stepanik foundation.
They are creating a community mosaic, so we had to paint or color some times. My contribution is above. DON’T LAUGH.
Typical me Coffee down my clothes.
I got lazy with my home pumpkin. But I think she turned out nicely!
To be honest… I’ve gotten pretty lazy in general. So have the animals….
My friends from Chicago came down for a visit and stayed at the Plains Historic Inn! I had such a great time meeting all of their friends and having some excellent girl talk and time!
I also was busy raising awareness about the risk factors and detection of breast cancer. I decorated the Americus Visitor Center and even created an honor wall.
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month and Halloween, it was a little tricky trying to celebrate both in one space.
We ended up doing a really cool pumpkin display with our partners. AND….
We won first place for the city!!!
Shopping for this magical holiday is always so much fun! Haley, Qaijuan and I did the best we could! Want to see our costumes for the week?
Here I am as the proprieter of the Sanderson Sister’s B&B. Yes, that is the blake flame candle I am holding.
Mickey & Minnie enjoyed seeing each other!
I was the bad girl tourist here.
We had a Disney themed day.
As you can tell, we had a lot of fun. But it was also a LOT of work.
Speaking of work.. I designed some new items, ordered them and now they are for sell. Again- BUSY!
Somehow through all of this, I have maintained my KETO/Low Carb way of living.
Finally, we wrapped the month up with a Halloween party for the immediate family. We called it a NIGHT TO DISMEMBER.
How did your October shape up?
