october...

..


Oh goodness, are we really nearing the end of the month already?

And apparently I am becoming a very, very slow blog writer...



Well then, how about some random thoughts...


Knitting. That's what I've been up to lately. So so much. Almost done with the second cardigan. Almost done with the first winter hat. Which is really more like a bonnet. And which is really really cute. All of which I will soon take pictures of to show you all...

Sewing. Finally. All this knitting has me really missing my sewing machine. A sweet friend asked me to make her a wrap skirt, and so that is how I spent my Saturday morning. How good it felt to be sewing again!

Homeschool. Going a bit slow but very well. Just finished up the Botany block with Chloe and will be starting some North American Geography this week. Just finished Chessa's first Language Arts block, letters and fairy tales. Real homeschool post coming soon...

Food. Harvested. Much stored away. Carrots and potatoes still in the ground, but not for long. Still harvesting fresh greens, yet already missing them. Apples still seeming never ending. Which is of course a good thing.



Our mountains. Beautiful. Getting colder.

This week. On Tuesday. Our 12th wedding anniversary.
My husband. The greatest most wonderful man in the world.


Love and well wishes to all.

And now back to knitting...

Dear Renee...Your mountains are more majestic and dramatic than our humble ones around my home. I love the silent creeping of the snowline, slowly, slowly down the mountain it comes. Every morning is a little closer. As you know, lots of knitting here, too, and Halloween costuming and birthday making. Goodness, lots and lots going on. Enjoy this moment.

Dear Renee,
I am happy to read you!
We, too, spend much time in these October days knitting, crocheting...
For tomorrow I wish you and your husband a wonderful day.

Oh I can't wait to see the knitting projects! I have been scouring Ravelry to find the perfect (for me) cardigan to knit up but I still need to do a bit more digging I think. Pretty pictures. That's quite a view you have.
