Hello October breeze!
It actually felt a little bit like fall early this morning! I wore my customary pajamas with my flip-flops to retrieve the newspaper off of our driveway and I was greeted by the crisp coolness of Fall. It was delightful! And made me long for my fluffy pink robe.
I think the temperatures stayed in the low 70's all of Sunday afternoon; we even had a few rain showers. It was the best afternoon to take a nap. Even though the temperature are suppose to be back in the 80's this week, that's okay, because I felt Fall this morning and I know it will soon be here to stay.
I hope that ya'll had a great weekend! We travelled to the out of town football game Friday night where our mighty buffaloes were sadly defeated. My heart hurt for the boys who were trying so hard out on the field to get some kind of play going. I think they sacked our quarterback a dozen times. Our boys fought hard but the other team fought even harder.
I have to tell you that the sidelines of this field were tiny. They were so tiny, that I really had to watch where I stopped to take pictures and to remember that if the players are getting larger in my viewfinder then they are getting really close to me. Within the first quarter this happened:
That would be the game ball flying towards ME! And where was my man???? He was right beside me saying, "Watch out!" Still, I snapped the picture and then moved to the side as the ball landed at my feet. That was a little close! I get tickled looking at the picture above because all of the football guys are watching the ball. I'm sad that they lost but I still felt blessed to be on the sidelines with them trying to encourage them to keep trying and to not be discouraged.
We drove home and then fell into bed at one in the morning. We were tired. Saturday afternoon I took another teacher certification test for an additional certification. The Lord was so good to remind me that in my anxiety over this test that He was with me every step of the way. I even had the joy of sitting in seat #7 which I thought was a pretty cool reminder that He was with me.
But after the test I felt a little bit like this player probably felt after getting hit so hard:
After that, I left Stein Mart and headed to Dillards to see what they had for fall....and I found NOTHING! Every bit of clothing that I came across was either too sexy, if you know what I mean, or too frumpy. And sexy frump-girl is not the look I want. I tried JC Penney's....same look. Oiy!
I should have tried Kohls but I figured they would have the same things so I just went home to my family. Where is a girl to shop these days? Really! I want to know. Where do you shop? I love Macy's but there is not one in a 400 mile radius. Please, help a girl out, save me from being sexy frump-girl and give me the 411, please! I'll love you forever!
