Autumn Sightings


I have been spoiled with fall like weather all week long, crisp cool mornings are now replaced with late summer humidity and yes, even some warmth.  On my daily walks, I'm mentally tallying all the changes I see in nature and memorizing them.  With the seasons changing, my knitting progress is renewed.  I eagerly sit and knit speeding through my hat on the needles so I can cast on another hat.



In defiance of the warm weather,  I'm wearing jeans every single day.



My daughter (who continues to make great strides in recovery) will be here on Tuesday after searching for a place to live in Delaware with her husband.  She will stay with us while my son in law flies back to the west coast and takes care of the rest of the relocation tasks.  He will return here at the end of the month and both of them will stay here for a few weeks holiday before starting his new job.
We also have family visiting next weekend and of course my son will be visiting the next few weekends to see family and his sister.  You know where this is going....I will be having a FULL HOUSE.  I have yet to plan out the menus, I guess I'm procrastinating.


I babysat two l-o-n-g days this week and I wonder how I've blocked out memories of the work I did when mine were toddlers.  When I am finished babysitting and return home, I am exhausted.  She is a funny girl and makes me laugh every time I babysit.  

Oh hey!  I am on the sleeve of my sweater, that is significant progress.  I brought the sweater to work on during nap time but forgot the pattern so....I didn't have a chance to work on it yesterday.

I hope where you live you are gifted with some beautiful weather and seasonal changes.

    I can't imagine a whole day with small children. We must have been young then, huh?
    It's wonderful that you're going to have a full house -- but it is exhausting!
