Around Here: October
Well, it is officially fall, our favorite time of the year! We are enjoying the cooler temperatures and foliage. Below are some items that have occurred around here in October, our favorite month of the year! We can hardly believe this month of October is coming to an end. It is always a fun and fully packed month each year!
-continuing to work steadily on my long-term photography project; I am almost done drafting the draft the copy for my project; and I continue to work on the remaining final images to finish to complete the project, which I plan to finish next year.
-finished all of the photo shoots for my long-term photography project, over 150 photo shoots over the past three years.
-continue to prepare filings with the U.S. Copyright Office, Library of Congress.
-finished culling and editing our images from our vacation!
-finished reading this book — an excellent read, and I will share more about this great book! I am still making my way through the stack of books on my nightstand.
-we celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary!
-we celebrated Victory’s birthday!
-we visited the pumpkin patch, an annual tradition, to pick out our pumpkins! (A few images from our trip to the pumpkin patch are shown below.)
-we are ready to celebrate Halloween — Victory looks so adorable in her costume! Doug has figured out our pumpkin theme, as he carves our pumpkin each Halloween, which takes him nearly a day to carve with the help of a Dremel — that is what you call dedication! Doug is going to attempt to carve two pumpkins this year, time permitting. I am sure Victory will supervise!
-my sister came to visit us.
-burning fall-scented candles all over the house!
-enjoying opening the windows and waking up to the crisp fall air in the mornings.

-started the second season of The Affair.
-started the second season of Fargo.
-started the first season of Orphan Black.
-giving our fur girl her monthly bath — Victory is getting better about bath time, but it still takes both Doug and I to bathe Victory! Victory’s fur feels so smooth and silky after her bath and brush out!
-just about finished our annual Pawliday card!
-almost done framing my images for the house — my new deadline is Christmas to finish, as this project it taking quite awhile to complete.
-continuing to make more progress on our ever-growing to do list!
