Welcome to Week 10 of Ms. Sally Russick's Focus on Life: "All Wrapped Up."
I will be sharing my interpretation of this challenge in a couple of ways.
First, as a jewelry designer, I enjoy working with wire though a bit challenging at times. Freehand wire wrapping in particular is fun as it always yields a unique design while maintaining uniform shapes. It is like being a potter who molds it to his desired shape.
I would like to share with you about my first experience at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo. I have never been to once hence the excitement! It is the world's largest livestock show and rodeo that aims to support the youth through education and also to encourage better agricultural practices with the exhibits and various presentations. Their banner is "Celebrating Agriculture, Education, Entertainment and Western Heritage."

Oh, there was so much to see... and eat! One event that we enjoyed was the Mutton Bustin' where kids between 5 and 6 years old tightly wrap their hands and legs on the sheep for 8 seconds. It was so much fun! I never thought sheeps could run that fast.

We were also able to watch Bruno Mars in concert. It was awesome! While waiting for the show, 2 young ladies seated in front of us could not help but wrap their hands on this fluffy cotton candy. Oh, to be young and not too scared of sugar... such bliss!
The carnival offered several activities too but we were too
old scared tired to even try them.
I love this photo - how the steel poles and lights were wrapped very securely... Who knows how many couples have tried riding this with arms wrapped around each other ♥.

And finally, we just had to get some Tex-Mex food: Garlic Chicken Burrito. A burrito or taco de harina is one of the more famous Mexican dish. It makes use of a wheat flour tortilla that is wrapped to enclose a filling, whether fish, beef, chicken or vegies. We've tried several burritos from the homemade to the fancy ones at restaurants. This was delicious... the seasoning was perfect, not overbearing at all.

It's a wrap!
