Hunting and Halloween and Homemaking...
Hunting season in Montana opened this past Saturday. Even though I had gone out and had WAY too much fun at MAT's Rocky Horror Show on Friday, I dragged my ass out of bed and went hunting with my husband. He is set on making me a mountain woman and has had so much fun buying me all sorts of hunting gear. I have my own gun, my own fanny pack, my own camouflage outfit, orange vest, hat and binoculars! We drove to Lolo, then went up Highway 12 and finally to Wagon Wheel Road. We spent about 3 hours driving slowly and quietly on all the back roads, up and down the mountain. Unfortunately, we didn't see a thing except for panoramic views of the gorgeous mountains. I had fun getting all dressed up, though, and spending the day with Caenaan.
Later in the week, I got to dress up for work every day. The first day, I got pretty ambitious and dressed up as one of my favorite characters from my childhood... Jem! She's truly outrageous. Jenny and I used to have a bunch of Jem dolls... I remember cutting Kimber's hair really short (I was known for torturing Barbies. I used to chew on Jenny's Barbie's hands and feet.) After I cut her hair, she was always the ugly doll and nobody wanted to play with her. Sad. Here is me, complete with a keytar from the '80s! (oh and by the way, I dressed as Jem TWENTY years ago for Halloween!!)
The next post will be about a few recipes I have tried this week!
