I can’t believe how fast October went by. So much happened during last month.
Let’s see, where to begin... I think the biggest one, for me, was learning that the rescue duck wasn’t a girl, but a boy. It seemed like overnight that Sunshine, aka Goldie (Now Gold E Bird) went from looking like a female to the gray and brown coloring of a male. Today I noticed his head feathers are starting to come. Soon he will have a handsome emerald head and neck!
Since I’ve known my husband we’ve dreamed of owning our own motorcycle and how fun it would be to take trips and explore. Well, it finally happened. After years of searching and saving we found the bike for us. Of course we instantly planned an overnight trip with another couple that has a bike to Jerome. Seeing the world in this new way was incredible. It was a perfect trip, minus the freezing temps we had to ride through coming home and the fact that I had forgotten gloves. 🥶 Aside from that, zero complaints. I’m excited to see where we go next.
October was the month that I officially started my journey with aerial silks. It’s so much harder than sling but I’m really enjoying the challenge!
I had the incredible honor of sharing the stage with my beautiful friend for our first duo debut as The Deviant Angels. We performed a Lyra piece that I’m so proud of. This was also the first time I’ve performed on Lyra, so that in itself was exciting for me. I also did a solo piece on sling. Where in the excitement of the moment, I started my decent into the splits too high and injured my hamstring. I am still on the mend but every day it gets a little better.
To keep me from going crazy while I’m healing I started making Cupid bandannas. He has quite the collection now, with 2 Halloween ones, one versatile one and a fall/thanksgiving one. I can’t wait until the holiday fabric comes in for his winter/Xmas one!
In the land of the chickens, I’ve continued working with my two hens in their jumping. Poor Florence gets pushed out of the way by the diva, Lady Gaga every time now to jump on my arm. Trying to find ways to get Florence by herself so she can show off.
Halloween was a last minute deal this year, as Byron was supposed to race that weekend, but do to an injury he was healing from called the event. So instead we dressed up and went to a friends house. It was such a fun evening. I even learned how to play Texas hold ‘em.
Well here’s to hoping I can find the time to write more often. Recapping a month loses a lot of detail. Hope your November is off to a beautiful start!
