We are settling down after a crazy fun homecoming weekend in my hometown. I have to give a big disclaimer that is not unknown- I am not really a sports fan of any sort except for the Olympics- especially not a fan of football. But . . . this is my alma mata and a huge homecoming tradition- in fact they claim to have started the tradition of homecoming now in its 99th year. I had to host some key author events on Friday night for the homecoming festivities for my day job, Saturday we went to the annual parade, and then the boys and I settled in for some pizza and gameday action on the tube while we kept a window open to list the the roar coming from the Stadium.
Roar as in Tiger Roar! The mascot is a tiger and I never saw so much gold this weekend. I have to admit the game itself was a pretty awesome win. I enjoyed watch and of course working on some toys at the same time! So now that town has settled in to this big win we are one the homestretch before Halloween. One of our small spots of tea time we discovered a fantastic Bengal Spice tea that we love and talked about tigers and their qualities that we like.
We also talked Herbs and now it is that fantastic time of the month for the monthly giveaway! Just in time for Halloween you can visit Kristine's Herbal Roots Zine site for a chance to win a wee little wood bat freshly made by yours truely!
