Autumn is my favorite season!I keep getting excited to think July is almost over and August will be the transition into the end of summer,start of fall...maybe September,we'll see.Being in southern California I don't think I'll get to appreciate it as much as back in Indiana.That is one thing I will always miss about Indy.Despite popular opinion I do not like Southern California.I know,I know.I must be insane.Oh wait!I am!*insert mad scientist laugh here*.
I just don't like the feeling of stagnation and that's what southern California feels like to me.The weather rarely changes,there is so cycle of seasons.I see so many of the same people doing the EXACT same thing as when I left.Heck,even the radio stations still play the same songs that I use to hear in high school.It is a beach town,my home town and that is what people like about it.For me..well,its not my cup of tea.Plus if you behold my pasty white glory you can see clearly I am not a beach bunny.The sun makes me sick and I don't do well in the heat!So Alaska I am ready for you!So ready!
My hubby has started his job up there which I am thankful for.After over a year of unemployment he's happy to be back to work.And working 12 + hour shifts,7 days a week at that!Its all in cycle with what needs to be done in order for us to all be together again.I've started saving the pennies my etsy shop makes too to help the move along faster.Things here at my dads aren't going very smoothly.Its a lot harder than I thought and to the point without boring you with all the family drama I know he needs to be in a 24 hr. care facility.I came here to help and my help isn't being used properly.If he wants to remain in denial about the severity of things I can't do much now can I?Nope,not so much.But hey A for effort I tried.That's all you can do sometimes with people.
I have to do whats best for my kids and myself and that is being a family again in Alaska.I've been back here a little over 2 months and it feels like so much longer!But a nice surprise today was awaiting me in the mail from my husband,it was a new cellphone.He'd gotten us our Alaska numbers and its an iPhone!I'm not one for technology usually but holy geekery I do adore this phone I really do!I've been having too much fun with the apps today and as you can see from these photos I had autumn attire on my mind!
The vintage red angora beret I got back in Indiana for $1.00 and the cost I got thrifting out here for $2.oo,it had a Pendleton feel to it and I do love me a Pendleton!
And now yes I can take my seat at the circle of iPhone users waxing poetic about the epic amounts of amazing this phone is.Its true.Even BluntCards know the deal.
