my how time flies

I can't believe it's been a week since I posted! I've been a very busy girl this past week. I worked a lot on my spinning and I was preparing for Saturday's Chili Cook off.

I made a very excellent pot of chili but it didn't place in the top 5. It may have been too hot for Virginia but would've fit right in in Texas.

There was a henna tattoo artist beside us and Mom and I each got one:

Mom's while drying.

Mom's after the 2nd application.

Mine after I got home and thought to take a picture of it.

The people on the other side of him were first timers so we made nice with them as well and offered moral support and encouragement. They'll be back next year. :)

The weather wasn't bad. It was in the mid 60's and overcast. Thankfully the rain held off all day!

Even though we didn't get pictures of it, Mom and I, in true Knitter fashion, knit to pass the time. She worked on a small bowl to be felted and I made a dishcloth.

I think all in all, it was a very good day. A trophy and a little cash certainly would've made it a better day but ya know, with the friends that stopped by and my most favorite Momma by my side, it would've been hard to top.

Today is for relaxing and cleaning up. But not all at once. I'm spacing it all out. I have to get a little napping and spinning and knitting in today too.

I hope everyone had less hectic week than I did and as great of a weekend!

Congrats on placing in the chili contest. I like my chili texas-hot, too. Sounds like you and your mom had a great time together.
