Much as I hate to see the vibrant colors, invigorating air and doses of sunshine on the shoulders come to an end, it is also fun to pull out last year's scarves, cowls and shawls in anticipation of wrapping up for cozy days and nights of crocheting.
Seven paisleys were languishing in the "deal-with-this-later" pile when the President of my CGOA chapter offered up a UFO Challenge. I didn't win the $50.00 drawing, but I got a new cowl finished!

Now that the temperatures are dropping we must either wrap up the 15 year old ficus tree and jade plant or bring them in and hope we can find space to keep them over the winter!
Always so special are the weekends when the grand-kids come to visit; er uh, and the kids too! Chloe really enjoys talking to Jack now that he is speaking in full sentences! I love their hilarious little conversations! Here are some highlights of this past weekend:
