So this week’s topic – what makes a “Fall day” for you? How do you know it’s here, and what do you love about the weather, the scenery, or something else that makes Autumn lovely?
That sums it up nicely. It’s not a great photo, but I love it just the same. The boys loved to sun in the driveway, and the falling leaves tempered the sharp edges on the gravel. We live in the woods, so I enjoy watching the leaves change, taking the dog(s) for a walk…
Everything about fall delights me. I love the cool, crisp air in the mornings and evenings. It makes me happy to pull out my sweaters and socks, and I love knitting with a shawl across my shoulders. I love apple cider, pumpkin ANYTHING… Knitting with wool without sweating…
In other news, Fredfoot is coming along nicely. I still hope to finish up this week, ahead of schedule for a change. I love the yarn, and it too speaks autmn to me, but more importantly it, it says FRED, and will soon be keeping my shoulders warm.
I found that while looking for Fredfoot photos. That was taken 11 months ago. I’ll get you a photo of my pretty shawl in the special colorway sooner or later.
Dianne presented me with an I Love Your Blog Award. Thank you, Dianne! I try, I really do. I use my blog to track knitting projects, but I also whine and moan here and share other things I think you might care to read. Along with the award, there are some rules:
1. Please put the award on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. You must nominate 4 fellow bloggers for this award.
4. Add links to the recipients.
5. Leave a comment so the recipients know they have received an award.
And, that’s where the train derails, because I hate nominating some of you and not others. So, help yourself to the pretty blue ribbon if you’re so inclined and let ME know if you do…
You also need to know about some special birthdays coming up this week. Gaylen‘s birthday is tomorrow, so please stop in and wish her well. Anne‘s birthday is Friday, and she has the honor of celebrating with Missy Sissy! Since this has been a month of highs and lows, we’re going to have some sort of contest to celebrate Sissy’s birthday, but you’ll have to check back later to see what Sissy and I decide to do about that.
