That's right in these here parts it's deer hunting season. Well it's been hunting season for a while but there is a different season for different guns. It starts with bow season, and at this point they are into shotgun season. He's already got one doe, and hoping to get one more. I know there's a lot of people who don't see the need for hunting but where we grew up there is a need. First of all if there were no hunters the deer population would get severely out of hand. Believe me even with the amount of hunters we have there have been times when they've upped the amount of deer a person can get because the deer population grew so fast. And in my family we grew up on deer meat. That might be weird to some people, but my dad would get a couple of deer every year and we lived off them all year long. Believe me it's really not that different from ground beef. Well that's my little plug for hunting :) I don't do it, but I was always grateful my dad did, because he literally put food on the table.
Saturday was an entire day of Tae Kwon Do events for Adam. Class, Tests, and a Self Defense class too. I spent the day alone catching up on old movies, like 101 Dalmatians. Then Sunday morning it was back to Adam's mom's house to work on the bathrooms some more. Adam worked all day, and I spent the day crocheting some more granny squares. The squares are to make myself a afghan I saw online, I'll share it when I finally finish it.
Here are the squares I have done so far.
Want to know why I love Adam? No it's not because of his unending devotion to his family. Well I do love him for that too, but there's more. It's because when I showed him the super cute new Christmas decoration I bought, he looked at it and said, "that's neat". That's a big deal considering it took him eight years to stop fighting the incoming Christmas decorations and embrace it. I was expecting an eye roll with some exasperated comment about how I have too many decorations.
Isn't it cute!
I'll share a pic when I finally put it up, I think it'll end up on the mantle.
I got it at TJ Maxx...my favorite store for deals.
And the best part of the entire weekend was the first snow. Almost all day on Saturday we had our first snow fall. It was absolutely the perfect snow. It was big and fluffy and there was very little wind so all the snow stayed in the trees, and is just beautiful. I'm sure Adam is sick of hearing me talk about the snow, because all the way to his mom's house on Sunday I kept exclaiming over and over how beautiful the snow was. I forgot to get a pic of our backyard to show you, but I'll make sure to get one after the next snow.
Now it's time to get prepped for Thanksgiving. Hope you all have a great Holiday week.
