Fall Break

TN Cotton Field

Friday, already?  I do wish that the week would have gone by a little slower, but I am happy with the break that I had and even happier with the lack of school-related thoughts.  I did for a few minutes today think about what is to come next school week, but then quickly went back to the happy thoughts of today – driving around looking for cotton fields and making a dress.  I thought I had missed out on a cotton field photo op, but there were a few off of the freeway that still hadn’t been harvested.  And as for the dress, it is half way done.  I don’t keep the correct color of zippers on hand and a Friday afternoon trip to Walmart is not worth it.  I can wait until Sunday to have it finished.

I’ve been a little preoccupied with the boy this week, and a little sleep deprived.  Late, restless nights, early mornings, and I never really did get caught up from last Sunday night’s emergency room visit.  Having other things to keep me busy this week has caused me to stay off of the computer, which is a little strange.  I usually spend a good several hours a week online.  I am out of the blog loop and my inbox has more than 300 messages.  I know I could deal with emails on my phone, but I’ve been out of it, like I said.

As for my phone, I am so happy with it.  The camera is great, and I am having a lot of fun messing around with it. In fact my phone camera has been getting more use than my regular camera.  Especially since I am doing that Instagram photo challenge.  I am just over half way done with the 30 day photo challenge, and I am starting to think about doing another one.  My next photo challenge though will have to be with my soon-to-be new camera.  I almost, almost made the drive to Memphis’s Costco this morning to get one, but then thought better of it when I saw that it was available online for the same sale price until the end of November.  Why drive an hour and a half when you can just get one delivered for free?  So soon, hopefully in another month, I will have that nice new camera I have been patiently waiting for.  I am getting excited!

And now, I do need to spend a little bit of time online and do a quick search of  recipes to see what I can come up with for dinner.  I am thinking potato soup, but I don’t even know where to start.  That’s it from me for now, but I’ll be back next week – hopefully with a new dress to write about.  Until then… hooray for Friday, and pretty white cotton fields!

  1. The cotton fields are gorgeous! I never would’ve thought of cotton as so deceptively photogenic. 🙂

    1. I know, right! They always look so pretty as I drive by them, glad I got some pictures.

Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
