goodbye summer

It's a little late and I'm horrible at keeping up with posting. But soon I won't have to share my laptop so it's all good.

So I love autumn. Love, love, loooooooove. It was alright in Korea, I still wish that I had gone to see the leaves change near Seoul. But I loved it here in PA two years ago. I got my cinnamon apple candles burning (that's what I think of when I think of scents that remind me of Fall) and the house is decorated for Halloween. Ha ha, I'm a fiend for this holiday. Wait until I start the Halloween posts!!!! I thought about redoing the layout for my blog for the month... We'll see.

I start my job training tomorrow! Finally, and yet I'm a bit anxious. New coworkers, new employer. Gulp. But it's at a bakery! Cross your fingers for me.

And here is my tribute to summer. My brother-in-law's family has a cabin out in the middle of the state. Very private, very relaxing there. So here are the photos from that! It's not the last thing we did before summer ended, but I didn't take any pictures while we were at Kennywood so next best thing!

We still have no idea how to play this game properly.
Poor Lulu's not feeling well today. I will be sad to leave her tomorrow.

score--everything went better than expected

Went to sell some books at Half Price AND I found all the out-of-print books that I have wanted for ages! And they're having a sale now! SCORE!

Also found some vintage pulp fiction that I really want, and it also introduced me to Robert Mcginnis- a prolific pulp fiction cover artist that was very abundant in the 60s. So I shall share some covers here-- I love the way he portrays the Mod femme fatales. I do love this style. I only wish I could pull it off. If my eyes weren't so sensitive I'd wear make-up like that more often.
I'm also trying to teach myself oil painting. One day I hope I get to that level. Someday.
