so much to do, but feeling so lazy!
I do plan to get 100 fall leaves made out of gumpaste for a wedding cake in the next couple of days.

My brother was doing renovations at his house to make room for the new baby, they pull up some floor boards and find a stack of old news papers form 1951. I want to go and visit him now and look through them.
This advertisement for the church they attend was found in one of them...
this was 3 years before my parent immigrated to Canada.

I'm at the office right now, had to spend some additional time to work on a couple of reports and get them out the door before Monday morning (which, by default I will not be in the office, I will be in Virginia all day), so here I am. After I get out of here, I'm heading home and I think I'm going to just piddle around the house and the garage a bit, tiddy up some loose ends and such.

Maybe I'll start digging out my Halloween movies and start watching some of them tonight. Can you believe I still have some of them on VHS? I've been slowly replacing them over the past few years with DVD's (if I can find them).

Well enjoy your day; talk to you all later....
Haha, I know what you mean. I also have some movies in VHS and it's annoying that I have to repurchase them all now, otherwise I won't be able to watch in the near future.

The ornament premier at Hallmark was fun today 🎄

I got Santa's Magic Storybook:



They both light up and have sound/music.
The story book has an excerpt read from Santa, and the sky lights up and reads "Believe" at the end. And Santa's signal plays Here Comes Santa Claus, and you can hear a train whistle and then kids at the end asking Santa to "please stop here". Really fun & sweet!!

There were many others that I was excited about, and even though I still liked them, I didn't want to spend the extra money right now. I narrowed it down to my two favorites.

Off to do some things around the house, and then I need to order some take out for us.

Talk to you later!!

xx

The story book is amazing! Looks cute. ^^

Good evening everyone! It's very late here right now but I've just got back from wonderful concert of 'Boyan Ensemble of Kiev'. Despite the fact that I hadn't heard of it before, I really enjoyed the concert. It took place at the church of my university campus, and the director of the campus had offered free tickets for students so I decided to take the chance! :] The first half of the concert was very peaceful and relaxing because the ensemble performed religious songs and carols. The second half was more entertaining because it was consisted of well-known classical songs and, most importantly, of Ukrainian folk songs. I saw Ukrainian folk songs listed on the concert's leaflet and I wondered how it was going to sound like. Surprisingly, it sounded really great and fun. :] Unfortunately, I couldn't take any pictures because we sat at the back of the church. (At the time we arrived, the church was already pretty full so we couldn't find any empty seats in the front. Oh well.) I'm know having my tea, and I hope everyone is having a nice Saturday!

Later, I plan to get on the tractor and plant deer food. We're supposed to get rain tomorrow from the storm that's passing through, so I need to plant today.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Hope you had fun cleaning out that closet!!!!!

Snowflake, and all Halloween/holiday village lovers, we went to the Christmas shop today and they had a section devoted to Halloween. If I had the money and the space....
