Melissa (oldest of our two daughters) is now a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant! If you need or want to order anything from her (help support her family!) you can order directly from her website and it can be shipped directly to your home. Here she is setting up for a party last night:
Here's she is during the presentation (with one of guests):
Jessica (younger of our two daughters) is officially the Cupcake Queen! She's just got the talent it takes to make cupcakes both taste yummy and look great! Here's a photo of a batch she's taking into her work today for a surprise shower:
Here's a photo of Jessica on Saturday when she was able to stop by home on her way to an event (with her new camera from her husband!):
Now....hang on to your seats....Mark and I went salmon fishing on Saturday...
(the Coast Guard cutter came in right next to us)
(the seaplane took off next to us)
(the bay was calm)
... and guess who caught her very first salmon?
Yep, I did! It was so exiting. It measured at 31 inches but we forgot to weight it. We had fresh salmon for dinner Saturday night, then froze the rest in packages.
Another September event, I ran my first "official" race! It was our local Prefontaine Run, a 10K race (6.2 miles). My goal was to place in the top 5 of MY age group, and I did! I placed 5th. I ran 8:48 minute miles on a somewhat difficult course, it has several "agony" hills!
I am really loving these early autumn days. A few of then were "Indian Summer" days, and now today the rain has returned! And I am spending a little too much time "pinning"...LOL Here's one I found, you can print out and frame:
Fall Blessings to you all! Hugs, Heidi
