I just love the Fall, everything about it just speaks to my soul. The crisp air, the smells, the leaves falling from the trees. I love apple picking and cider, hot cocoa, and when I could eat them, donuts (I will find a way!!!!).
The last month has flown by so fast with homeschooling and dance class, the flu made it’s way to our house, I was down and out for over a week and Leif followed suit. Toph and Lorelai managed to escape without so much as a sniffle, Leif was better with in a matter of days, but I still have this lingering cough that is more annoying than anything.
I was hoping to knit during my downtime, I got a few things done, but mostly I had to restart a mitten twice. The first time I lost track of how many rows I had done, and the second I used the wrong size knitting needles, making the mitten an entire size smaller than the first.
When I was able to finally move about and do other things, I made spaghetti sauce and salsa out of the 54lbs of tomatoes I purchased the day before I started to feel horrible.
During my second round of what I like to call my failing immune system, I was able to working on another project, as I only had a sinus infection, and so my hands worked just fine.
a friends little boy just turned two and I thought being a fall baby, that a pumpkin hat was appropriate.
I also had the chance to make two wildflower crowns for a friend and myself, using the lovely pattern from Tiny Owl Knits
Now for some furry news
My husband happened to snap a picture of this brand new highland calf, some friends of ours up the road have a whole herd of highland cattle and they are just some of the most beautiful animals I have ever seen, I just fell in love with this little fella.
We’ve been working in several things for homeschooling, including our attempts at paper mâché for a social studies project on ancient China
As well as crocheting a scarf. I now understand crocheting a little better and may even attempt to do more crocheting because of it.
We’ve been learning about the five sense and how to play the recorder. Lorelai and I can down play a recorder and guitar duet of a Mary had a little lamb.
As I said Autumn has arrived, one day we had several leaves on the ground and the next we woke up to this
We have been preparing for the cold winter months, which includes and new hutch for Carrick, thanks to our neighbors. They raise rabbits and offered this hutch to us.
Well folks I will leave you with a picture of the lovely sunset I took in my backyard last night, have a great day!!
