Falling Short

When August had just begun, I said to myself, "Self... this year you are going to have a whole slew of new Halloween charms ready by September."  Unfortunately, I must have been distracted when I was telling myself this.  Its October 1st.  I've got nothing.  I have been completely involved in taking care of everything else that time slipped away from me so fast.  Considering the circumstances, I am going to cut myself a little slack though.  Its been a rough year.  I was still hoping to have something new and exciting for this year.  I do, but its only in my sketchbook.
So now, I think its a little late to really try and stock up.  I could attempt it, but I'm just not sure I could really catch up.  I'm afraid that I wont be able to do any shows before Halloween. I might just have to let it go this year and look into the following holiday seasons.  We'll see.

...  I started to write this on Saturday, but its Monday now ...

Today was a great day.  My Sweetheart and I went apple picking.  If there is one thing I have to do every year, its apple picking.  The weather today was gorgeous.  It was breezy, clear blue sky, no rain, 68 degrees beautiful.  We had cider and cinnamon doughnuts, and did some wine tasting.  Went home with a ton of apples and bunch of other things, including our 4 pound jar of honey.  Today was a great day.  :)

This week my goal is to focus.  So many things have been distracting me.  Too many things.  Whats worse is that even with so many distractions, I can't even get those things done.  I should make a list.  I should write out things I want to have taken care of by Friday this week.  Maybe I will do that tonight while I lay in bed.  Contemplate what needs to get done.  Its as if the tasks are piling up in my brain and causing lockup.

I hope to have some pictures soon.  If I can get my act together.  :)  Keep your fingers crossed.
