Horrifying Trip to the Farm!

For Halloween weekend, one of my best lady friends was awesome enough to invite a gaggle of people down for a mini-vacation to her parents’ farm - it was 100% fabulous. We somehow managed to cram a hiking trip through the woods to a pre-Civil War dam, a trip to an orchard, farm animal befriending, lyra practice, three delicious home-cooked meals, and a Halloween costume party all into ONE DAY. I’m still amazed, to be honest, and still a little exhausted thinking about it! We got in on Friday/Saturday around midnight and left on Sunday around 9:30am (it was a four hour drive each way) – I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Plus, I got to combine two of my favorite things in the world – aerial practice and zombies. 

My life is a little more complete than it was before this trip.

So, then life happened...

LIFE! It’s HAPPENED! And this poor blog has been severely neglected, shame on me. What’s been happening since the summer, you ask? Plenty of the following:

-RuPaul’s Drag Race, Workaholics, and The X-Files on Netflix.
-Aerial silks, and a second mini-session of Lyra practice! I’ve been on a self-imposed 6-week hiatus from any sort of physical activity to let my back injury finish healing, but everything seems to be going swell! My first aerial class since September 19th is tomorrow – I don’t have words to express how excited I am!
-Lots and lots of wedding planning – we now have all of the basics covered! Photographer, florist, baker, officiant, venue, caterer, and dress are all accounted for. Plus, Tyler’s family is stocking our open bar and providing the audio equipment and DJ for us! Now, for the details…after I rest for a month or so. ;)
-Sporadic drawing and other arty nonsense, including commission and cosplay work.
-Finally selling the pile of clothing, shoes, instruments, furniture, and fabric I’ve been meaning to clear out of the house for ages.
-And of course, lots and lots of time spent with friends. Of course. J

Lately, since October is Halloween season, I’ve been diving into all sorts of horrifying and wonderful situations! I’m trying to stock up on good horror genre entertainment while the season’s right – it’s just not the same at any other time of year. I’m currently eating up the second season of American Horror Story and the third season of The Walking Dead. MORE PLEASE!! I also experienced Markoff’s Haunted Forest for the first time ever – it was AMAZING, can’t wait to go back next year.

This weekend I’ll be trucking down into the boonies of Virginia with a gaggle of friends to spend a weekend with Kate and her family on their farm! Yet another adventure I am quite excited for. Hopefully this time I’ll document with pictures and an actual write-up, instead of a hurried and incomplete list in January. Ttfn, ta-ta for now!
